The Angel Hotel

The charming Angel Hotel offers the eclectic and cosmopolitan styling of a boutique hotel combined with the classical touches of a dramatic Georgian building. Steeped in history and covered in dramatic swathes of ivy, The Angel is a sanctuary for anyone seeking the ultimate in comfort and peace. 

Opt for one of their executive contemporary suites; with luxurious fabrics and finishes, a super-king sized bed and huge copper bath to float away your worries. Enjoy the complimentary tea and coffee, toiletries and 24 hour room service as well as a flat screen tv and fluffy bathrobes. Some suites even have a view of the historic Abbey Gardens.

Ravenwood Hall

Reverberating with history and set in seven acres of lovely grounds and gardens, Ravenwood Hall is a much cherished and independently owned family hotel. Inside, the whole hall oozes opulence and elegance and the individually styled rooms reflect the history of the building, with antique furniture and a calming atmosphere. 

Seek out the Oak Room for a nourishing night’s sleep; featuring a stunning four poster bed, this bright corner room has the best views, overlooking lawns to the front and side. It features original Tudor oak panelling and has been decorated in keeping with this traditional style for a luxurious yet traditional ’staycation’. Draw the heavy drapes around the bed and grab your favourite book for the ultimate in peace and quiet.

The Great House Lavenham

Situated in the heart of Lavenham, one of Britain’s most picturesque villages, The Great House is a sumptuous boutique hotel boasting 2 AA rosettes and simply overflowing with style and elegance. The contemporary chic decor sits effortlessly alongside the warmth and spirit of the beautiful original medieval building. 

For a night of uninterrupted sweet dreams, book ‘The Montmartre Room’ with its sloping beamed ceiling and comfortable location tucked away at the very top of the house. The room has a king-size mahogany bed and ‘L’ shaped corner sofa offering a spacious area to sit and relax whilst watching tv, chatting or reading. The generous bathroom is a place of tranquillity with views over the Market Place and Lavenham rooftops. The bed is dressed in fine Egyptian linen, a luxurious eiderdown and plump continental pillows. Make the most of thoughtful extras such as free Wi-Fi connections, a decanter of sherry, a complimentary platter of fruit on request and all the required modern technology.

The Ickworth Hotel

The Ickworth Hotel is enveloped in rolling Suffolk Countryside and surrounded by 1,800 acres of beautiful parkland so you will feel a million miles away from the hustle bustle of everyday life. The Ickworth has perfected the art of cosy luxury; its spaces being simultaneously decadent and homely- quite a find I’m sure you’ll agree.

The hotel has a plethora of dreamy bedrooms, each with its own style and personality, but if you’re looking for a truly special place to lay your head why not go all out and stay in the room that belonged to the owner of Ickworth- Lord Bristol. This spacious room has stunning views over the Italianate Gardens and is accessed by the main sweeping staircase. Sink into the squishy sofa as you wind down in the evening and stretch out on the bed in the morning before ambling down to the sunny conservatory for breakfast.
