Visited Southwold last week and decided to treat ourselves to special lunch. We saw Sutherland House with all it's stars and walked in. A warm greeting and shown to a table, we were given a leather bound wine list, and a lunch menu on a rather flimsy scrap of paper. We were rather taken aback! A few uninteresting starters and...

We love Southwold and wanted to stay somewhere special and near to all the amenities. Sutherland House Hotel ticked all the boxes. We stayed in the Earl of Sandwich room which was lovely. The big wow moment was seeing the bath ! Although be warned it takes about 40 mins to fill. The owners were really welcoming. The breakfast superb...

The restuarant is a must, absolutely delicious. Location perfect, only a short walk to the shops and sea. I will be recommending this hotel to friends and family and hope to make another...

Having had several enjoyable stays here in the past we booked a short break in the recently opened garden room, and were not disappointed. The room is comfortable, well equipped and tastefully decorated. The lighting is excellent - often hotel rooms have wall lights only, but residents in the garden room have the choice of wall lights and/or ceiling lights....

Sutherland house is situated in the High Street and perfect location to access Southwolds amenities. Price comparison is very good to other hotels in the area. Breakfast was very good with selection of fruits, yoghurts, cereals, fresh fruit juices along with a selection of cooked breakfasts. We had booked the smallest room called the Thomas Cammell but this was perfectly...

We always try to squeeze in a meal here when visiting family in Norfolk. This time my sister and her husband were able to join us and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Warm welcome, good service, fabulous food. Sorry if we talked too much.......... See you again soon hopefully.
