- "A historic and attractive building in the centre of town, all the staff helpful and efficient. Our room was excellent with a lovely seating area, linens were good quality and clean, we had lovely views over the Abbey. The décor was a little tired and the bathroom, although very clean, requires some modernisation, neither of these negative comments would stop us from staying again. Breakfast was very good and altogether it was a good value for money stay."
- "Booked a room and breakfast in the inn. Good service from the staff, in the bar, the check-ins, and the breakfast (though this could be a bit slow.) Loved the old floorboards but they do tend to creak. Gives everything character. As do the open fireplaces – so warm. They had parking available for free, which solved a major issue. Recommended."
- "Meeting up with friends in Bury St Edmunds we booked ourselves into the Dog & Partridge as it was only about a mile away from the train station. Having just arrived in the UK it probably took us slightly longer to walk than we thought it might due to the amount of luggage we had. If your here for a short stay it'll be ok to walk but if landed with luggage a cab may have been wiser. There was a good friendly feel to the place and both the rooms and the breakfast were lovely."
- "Well located on the edge of the town and within walking distance to everything. The service was friendly and efficient, rooms are well furnished and decorated to good standards, well equipped with toiletries, tea/coffee etc. Breakfast was very good, food in the evening was nothing special and a bit pricey. Having said, the accommodation is top class and I would certainly stay again and probably mooch about the town to eat at night."
- "Pleased that the Dog and Partridge offers delicious food and comfortable rooms. Very easy to find. The car park was a bit small but is provided free of charge. There’s plenty of shops and pubs within walking distance of the front door. Breakfast included a full English option, as well as cereals, though was not complimentary. It was very tasty."
- "A B&B isn't my usual choice of stop-over whilst away on business, but had decided I needed a change from the corporate run Hotels I've been staying in of late. The Abbey suited me perfectly for my meetings in Bury St Edmunds as I could leave my car behind for a change. The whole character and feel of the place was a welcome and refreshing change, even the toiletries supplied were much better than anticipated. B&B's may well be heading my way a lot more this year."
- "I’d say that I was more than pleased with my time in the Dragonfly Hotel, even if it was only a day or so. I was dropped off at the desk, got chatting to the staff, and got myself a lovely room, all in the space of twenty minutes. Very efficient. Room was excellent, clean and ready for me. Perfect."
- "We were guests of Ravenwood Hall Country bed and breakfast and left with nothing but positive things to say about it. The pool, for instance, was a welcome benefit. The room was exquisite, both in terms of comfort and cleanliness. The service, everywhere we went, was just top class. Proud to endorse this business."
- "Enjoyed the Beightons, a well-placed Guest House run by friendly people. Can be a bit tricky too find on Google maps, so worth noting down contact details. They offered a continental breakfast, in a special area, but cooked food could have been nice. They’ve got a pretty garden, easy to set off in any direction for a nice walk."
- "The perfect family spot from which to explore the Suffolk/Norfolk area. Parents can stay in beautiful appointed rooms and relax in the lounges, whilst the younger generation can wander the grounds on bikes or head to the cinema. We had a lovely suite with the bedrooms being separated by the bathroom giving both us and the children there own space. I am looking forward to returning to Ickworth Hotel in the summer to enjoy the sun across the grounds, as the frosty mornings were amazing."
- "In a beautiful location, lovely grounds and an impressive looking exterior. Shabby chic would describe the interior, rooms require some tlc and updating. I appreciate the building is old and a modern style of décor would not blend in well, but I have stayed in similar bed and breakfasts in much smarter rooms. Service varied from good to very slow. Not overly impressed for the price paid."
