“An absolute must!!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I stayed here with my husband and dog for a well earned break at the beginning of the year. We were not sure what to expect as the only place that we had previously visited in Suffolk was Southwold (which we love). Needless to say that we had no cause for concern as The Reading Rooms really is a home from home but with that added touch of luxury and a quarter of the price of anywhere in Southwold (which is only a stones throw away). The owners attention to detail is spot on and they fall over themselves to be helpful, just lovely. We have already booked for next year and will be taking our friends so that they can experience this wonderful touch of Suffolk hospitality. Thanks so much Andy and Hayley!!!!

“A gem of a find”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed here recently and loved every minute of it. The host Hayley was so welcoming and can accommodate you every need. It has a lovely romantic yet homely feel to it..stunning in the summer but we can't wait to go back with friends in the winter, so we can sit in front of the beautiful open fireplace!. It is perfect for self catering but there are amaizing cafe's and restaurants in the surrounding areas. Hope to see you soon Hayley...that is if you can fit us in, the weeks are filling in too quickly?!

“Home from home”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is our 6th family holiday at The Old Reading Rooms,and already planning our next week away.We only found this little gem about 3 years ago and have never regretted it.When you first arrive you will find easy parking,the cottage actually as 2 spaces a rarity in this area.The owners are so easy going,friendly and down to earth.The building as been beautifully converted into a cosy holiday let.With a large kitchen/diner/living room you can easily keep in the conversation while doing a spot of food.A downstairs bathroommwith a rolltop bath.Then you go upstairs,where there is a shower room,and toilet.There are 3 good size bedrooms all furnished with cast iron beds and plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space.
