The Great House Hotel & Restaurant
Ranked #1 of 8 Lavenham B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2012

Arrived on Sunday afternoon during Sunday lunch and was politely asked to come back - it was very busy. Room was comfortable but could be small for two (number 5). The staff, all French, were delightful and friendly. Breakfast was good but the highlight of the 3 nights was dinner on the last night.
I made the mistake of meeting some relatives and only ate at The Great House once - big mistake. The food was delicious and the portions ample.
I will return and dine only at there.

Room Tip: Room 5 was fine for me as I was travelling alone, but could be somewhat "bijou" for two pa...

Went for dinner with my wife. The food was excellent - best beef we've had for a long long time - all served beautifully by efficient and friendly staff. The wine list is very good. The place was full with a great atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole dinning experience, which was truly memorable. Can't wait for our next visit, because we will be back!!

It was wonderful to experience again the gastronomic delights of The Great House - a very special place to savour the best of French food. My husband and I had two dinners here last week while staying in Lavenham and once again found our taste buds and vision excited by splendid food lovingly presented by attentive staff who really care about their guests. Thierry is a delight - discrete but fun! Thankyou and we'll see you all again. (I hope Martine and Regis enjoyed the video!)

A restaurant with rooms in the centre of Lavenham, one of the prettiest villages in suffolk and some of the best food in this country. An exquisite dinner, and a lovely bedroom too. All thoughtfully prepared with a guest,s comfort in mind. We coudn't fault it. Can't wait to stay again.

Room Tip: They are all good.

We spent two nights here in late February and would thoroughly recommend it. It's a restaurant with rooms as opposed to a hotel but it's standards are as high as most 5 star hotels and it's won loads of awards. Our room was no 3 (of 5) which is bigger than the others we think. Decor is designer style mixed with medieval beams and a fantastic old oak bed. Bathroom is small but well equipped. The restaurant was first class french food with a good atmosphere - decorated in pastel grey with grey leather chairs and smart white linen tablecloths. Breakfasts simple with best croissants outside France! All in all makes for a perfect weekend break. We spent morning on Saturday at Lavenham Falconary for a birds of prey experience which we can recommend. Lavenham is a fascinating medieval town with some great buildings and quite a few antique shops.

Room Tip: Room 3 is a suite with separate lounge
