About the hotel

Nestled away in the Suffolk countryside, The Mill Hotel is a converted historic water mill which oozes history and has undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment programme. Located in Sudbury, the hotel has plenty to offer visitors and is the ideal base for exploring the area, including nearby villages of Lavenham and Melford, and the Kentwell Hall and Melford Hall stately homes. Plus, it’s situated just 32 miles from Stansted Airport and a 10 minute walk from Sudbury Train Station.

The hotel offers FREE wifi and parking to all guests. Each of the 62 guest rooms at The Mill Hotel are luxuriously refurbished to the highest standards. All bedrooms include everything you’ll need for a memorable stay, including wide-screen televisions, tea and coffee and tea making facilities, and fully equipped bathroom. Many rooms overlook the nearby meadows offering great views of the countryside. Guests dining at The Mill Hotel can enjoy a pleasant and sophisticated experience in the Mill Restaurant, serving up delicious meals with local produce. A carefully selected wine list offers both new and old world wines, but if you’d prefer to take a more casual approach you can enjoy a meal in the Mill Bar overlooking the wonderful meadows. The hotel offers outside seating on the roof terrace with heated canopy, which overlooks the meadows and caters for outside dining whilst enjoying the most beautiful views in the area. Sudbury was home to England’s most famous portrait artist, Thomas Gainsborough and within a few minutes’ walk of the hotel you will find yourself indulged in the painters, most valuable, precious work.

On arrival I was given a room in the annex across the road from the hotel, which is quite nice, however my room overlooked the car park and not very private.

The hotel takes in coach parties which means the restaurant is pre booked for the coach parties and therefore even attempting to reserve a table is near impossible. I therefore had little option but to eat away from the hotel. I also had problems at breakfast in the restaurant as there were no tables again due to the coach party reserved tables. I was given a chair at a foldaway table and given a cup of coffee as I stood at the booking in desk as the made up my table. The food was barely warm and no eggs available as the chef was obviously under pressure.

Truly awful hotel

Pictures shown when purchasing was not the room given.

We weren't actually in the hotel, we had to walk down the road to another building. The room was very small and it felt like student accommodation. The bed was fine, but there really wasn't any room in the room. There was no proper furniture and you couldn't even sit at the dressing table as you couldn't pull the stool out - not that the mirror was anywhere near the dressing table. The bed was a double and we felt really cramped. The bathroom was fine, although the radiator was so near the toilet I burnt my leg. The tissues on the window sill was a nice touch for those using the room for an hour or so. The kettle stand and milk cartons had coffee splashes on them. The breakfast was farcical: you come in to a line of staff doing nothing (obviously your room number is very important). All those staff and you have to make your own toast, serve yourself from heated troughs, and to cap it all, asked if we wanted an awful beverage from a heated flask as they go round the room asking if you want more of the stuff (I knew there was a reason they had some staff, although it seemed to be left to one young man who they occasionally moaned at, although he was probably the most pleasant in the place). When we complained to reception, and told them of our issues, they were very defensive - challenged everything I said, and then started to stifle a laugh - I told her straight that I felt that she wasn't very professional. A complete disaster of a hotel - do not stay unless the last box is taken on the pavement up town.
