Long Melford Delight
This is a lovely little hotel in a lovely position.
It is clean and tidy, has character and charm and a very relaxed atmosphere with fine service from the staff.Thankfully it is decorated as a traditional country house rather than in the stark minimalist style that is afflicting so many of our old pubs and inns.As a general point, I read reviews of hotels and B & B's and am constantly astonished at the nit-picking criticisms that people make on trivial things from the road noise outside to the use of shower curtain rather than a screen. If one is a self-important enough individual such as to have unreasonably high expectations of perfection in life then disappointment is inevitable. Such a person would be able to pick silly holes in any hotel, but for the normal level-headed person, take it from me, The Black Lion gets all the fundamentals right. It's a great place to stay if you want a traditional English country hotel experience..
