“Lovely B&B”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

i stayed at this b&b in november for a night as i was attending my cousins party in long melford, lovely little place, we booked a family room, bathroom was lovely, nice tea/coffee making facilities i didnt attend breakfast but my parents did and said it was nice, the pub downstairs was nice did get abit crowded at times, the only problem i had was the slats on the bed kept breaking but it was nothing big and was still sleepable on overall i would definantly reccomend this b&b to anyone who's just looking for a bed to sleep in for the night!

Reviewed 29 July 2011

We were looking for somewhere cheap to stay the night after a friends wedding and this fit the bill.
The room was fine, a bit on the small side and shabby in areas but generally clean. The room faced onto the main room and I imagine it could be a bit noisy if you were sober, but I wasn't so I didn't care!
The bathroom to the room was huuuge.
Breakfast was served in the morning, sausages were lovely but the fried eggs and fried bread were a bit overdone. Still enjoyed it though.
Staff were friendly and polite and there was a lovely fat cat who loved attention.

We stayed here for one night whilst attending a friend's wedding at nearby Alpheton Hall Barns. We were able to check in early before the wedding and had a superior room in the block next to the pub. We were pleasantly surprised as it has been very well refurbished with a comfortable bed, plenty of storage, flatscreen TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom was large with a good power shower and nice toiletries provided. The only improvement I would make is to double glaze the windows as there is some road noise.
Breakfast the next morning was served in the dining room at the back of the pub. It was a light and airy room and the breakfast was one of the best we've had in a long time.
Most of our friends from the wedding stayed in Lavenham (and paid over £200 a night!). We were so glad we stayed here as it was far better value and much nicer, in our opinion.

Reviewed 29 December 2010

We stayed in the George & Dragon to hole up for a night's break between christmas and the new year. In these cold, foggy, still winters' days we did not plan on extensive sight seeing, though Long Melford has much to offer in this regard with its abundance of antique shops, opportunities for walking and cycling, and proximity to Melford & Kentwell Halls. Instead, we just wanted a cosy place to stay, ideally with character, and within a short walk of decent places to eat and drink. The George and Dragon was perfect. A smiling welcome, a massive family room to ourselves (room 6) with modern ensuite and large p shaped bath. A delicious, filling full English breakfast rounded our stay off. As a pub, not without competition in Long Melford, it wasn't half bad either. We'll definitely be back in the Spring.

Reviewed 29 December 2010

We booked a superior room (no 12) in an annex. The room and bathroom (bath with good shower) size are good and the bed is comfortable. The decor however is looking shabby, with obvious signs of the conversion to ensuite not finished off or poorly done - hole in ceiling, towel rail loose despite having been refixed and the previous holes not filled in, paint badly chipped. This room is facing the busy street but has no double glazing so is noisy late into the evening and early in the morning. With deep windows it also needs privacy curtains. The attention to detail is lacking - on arrival bedside lamp bulb blown, only one saucer for two cups, no outside door key initially provided - little things that could make a difference. The main pub can also get noisy so not one if you're looking for a quite stay.

The breakfast options are very good; cannot comment on the evening meals as they closed the first night we were there and we also ate at other restaurants on the other two nights of our stay.

It's location half way down the main street means that you are within walking distance of several good eateries from the reasonable to more expensive.

Overall, ok if you want a low cost stay and are prepared to put up with some noise and functionality rather than excellence.
