Michael & Christine were excellent hosts form the cream tea welcome to the fond farewell. Our room (blue) was a pleasantly large size and kitted out with everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Breakfast was exceptional, all freshly cooked with local produce. The park was beautiful, even on a chilly March morning, and their dogs were very...

It was so good to spend a few days with you both and your lovely dogsTeigan and George. You look after us so well! Everything was just perfect! Warm ensuite room, comfortable bed, a lounge to relax in whilst enjoying delicious scones, excellent breakfast and a very pretty garden to explore or sit in. Thank you see you again.

A peaceful location, with welcoming hosts, comfortable rooms, a superb breakfast, lovely gardens. I've run out of superlatives, this is simply THE best place to stay in West Suffolk, which is why I've retuned so often.

The room was beautiful, we were greeted with fresh hot scones and tea when we arrived too, which were delicious. The room was well stocked with brew facilities and toiletries too and the owners even stocked in our fave beers for us. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious and if they had offered an evening menu we would've happily paid...

Drinkstone Park truly is a little haven of paradise. Michael and Christine have really thought of everything a guest could possible want. Relaxation, comfort - just sink into those comfy beds, enjoy their large lounge with views of the garden and big log fires - we desperately needed to unwind and we did. As for breakfast the choices are amazing...

We had a thoroughly good time and would recommend Drinkstone House. Michael and Christine are very friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts are 5 star. The room we had was very comfortable with french doors onto a small private terrace. The grounds would be lovely in summertime.

The B & B is in a very peaceful location, with lovely gardens and views. I found the hosts most welcoming and attentive at all times. The room was well furnished with a good sized bathroom. There was a great choice for breakfast which was cooked and presented with care. Shame it was only an overnight stay for work!

Having done the overnight stay for work perhaps we can tempt you to a 'Book Direct Online Special' with a few nights here and days exploring the Suffolk countryside. Thank you for your kind review and hopefully work will bring you back to sample a different time of year.

Had an absolutely wonderful stay. Beautiful setting and amazing gardens. The room was perfectly clean, a great size and comfortable. Hosts are very friendly and made us feel at home, the breakfasts were excellent and could not fault the stay

This is the gold standard for all b and bs, it is difficult to say anything that everybody else has not said, as regular visitors, we think Christine and Michael set a standard that would be hard to beat, the whole ambience of their home, the facilities, the welcome, is fantastic. It would be amiss not to mention Christines wonderful...

Very pleasant hosts with a good B&B in a quiet rural location. I was only staying overnight on a business trip so probably didn't get the best out of it. Breakfast was excellent. I would definitely stay there again if visiting the area again.

I think you will certainly have to come again and see if you can 'get the best out of it' next time, then who knows we may get that elusive extra star. To be honest TripAdvisor does have some quirks which occasionally lower the score of a review when actually the guest has been, as in the case, only positive....
