#3 of 4 hotels in Woodbridge
Beautiful four-star luxury hotel and spa offering an ideal base to explore the county of Suffolk - from the local Suffolk coast featuring popular destinations such as Southwold and Aldeburgh to Constable country visiting villages such as Flatford and Dedham. Steeped in history, the magnificent red brick Tudor building is over 500 years old and is complemented by the modern facilities of the newly refurbished Seckford Spa, adjacent to the main hotel building. Perfect for business or pleasure, the hotel is also a wonderful Suffolk wedding venue with acres of beautiful grounds and a lake.

Staff approachable, friendly and accommodating. In meeting the GM, disengaged, rude and down right disrespectful. A lesson in good leadership and customer service wouldn’t go a miss for the GM, maybe her staff could train her!

Initially I had booked for a spa treatment and overnight stay. Despite the fact the swimming pool and jacuzzi was closed (I would also like to add that the marketing for this wasn't clear as I only saw this for the first time on the email confirmation...) we resorted to the fact that at least we would be able to use the gym and sauna facilities along with a massage we had booked. However, on the Saturday morning of our stay we found that the gym and spa facilities were closed. After enquiring at reception, it materialised that the receptionist was not aware of our booking and that the whereabouts of the masseuse were unknown. On top of this, despite the sign on the gym stating that it would be open at 10am, all facilities were locked. We were then advised that we would need to wait for the masseuse's arrival and then wait until it could be set up and for the facilities to be opened. Considering this was the prime aim of our trip to Woodbridge, it has left us extremely frustrated. As a result, we had to cut our stay short. Since then, I have tried to contact the customer service team and not one person has replied. This is incredible poor service and I would not recommend to stay here.

I have terminal cancer and whilst I am still able I try to go away to stay at hotels, at the weekend, with my wife. On 14th September 2021 I noticed that Best Western were running a special offer where a room could be booked for £48. I looked at the hotels involved in this special offer and came across Seckford Hall and late on the 14th I booked a double room but when the conformation came through I noticed that the booking was for one guest rather than two. I telephoned the next day to amend the booking from one person to two and was told that there would be an additional charge of £50. I stated that I thought this extortionate and that I could book a double room for my wife for £48 and save myself £2. I also mentioned the predicament I was in with regards to my terminal illness hoping that a little compassion would be shown. The person who I spoke to was adamant that an additional £50 was required if I wanted to add my wife as an additional guest. I therefore telephoned Best Western customer services who kindly waved the charge and sent me an email through adding my wife as the additional guest. On 20th November we went to the hotel and I queried why an additional charge was made for an extra guest, this I was told was because extra towels would need to be put in the room. Putting a bath towel and hand towel in the bedroom for £50 does to me sound rather expensive.

We booked a stay here on the 19th November and were very impressed when we pulled up. The outside of the building was beautiful and we were really excited for our stay. The check in process was quick and staff were friendly. We were shown to our room and so disappointed as it looked nothing at all like the photos online! It had a tiny bathroom that had a faulty towel rail and the bed was a very small double. We had dinner at the restaurant, menu was different to what we had seen online but food was good. Heating in our bedroom did not work and the windows let in quite a draft. We had breakfast booked the next morning that was very good. We then checked out and were told by the member of staff we were in credit on our account but as it had been booked using a voucher we couldn’t have the money back so were offered a complimentary bottle of champagne. You can imagine my surprise when later that day, after we had checked out, I received an email to say there was an outstanding payment on the account for a “drinks bill”. I explained we had been told we were in credit at checkout and asked for an explanation. We had no further correspondence from Seckford hall and when i checked my account I saw they had taken an unauthorised payment for this “drinks bill”. They have provided no invoice or itemised list nor explanation of why we were told we were in credit and now being charged?! I have made a formal complaint and will need to contact my bank. I would not recommend this venue to anybody.

Lovely Tudor property with excellent period features and surrounding grounds (great for a walk) The food was great (breakfast and dinner) the service was good, room in need of modernisation or improvement gym and leisure facilities closed far too early for people at the hotel on business. Other than the slight negatives of room and leisure access the stay was great and I would stay again.
