"We booked the penthouse for a weekend away and fell in love… Everything about it was perfect and beat our expectations. The stylish decor and attention to detail was spot on. The rooms were immaculately presented, and the whole apartment felt spacious and grand. We felt privileged to have found somewhere so special. Location was spot on for walks into the small town, along the coast to Thorpeness or by the river Alde. One of the best stays ever, we would highly recommend a visit."
“We have had a wonderful relaxing break staying here. The Penthouse is by the nicest property we have stayed in. First class in every way. We stay in Suffolk every year for a few days and we will be back again for sure”
"Impressed with this wonderful penthouse – spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. Good attention to detail, home from home for home comforts. Comfortable beds with excellent quality linen. My love affair with the area continues! Dinner at the Wentworth Hotel on Saturday was worth leaving the penthouse for in the rain. Many thanks for sharing your beautiful apartment"
