Why We Love This Hotel

  • The Mill Hotel is a former watermill with a working water wheel
  • The property is on the River Stroud and is surrounded by stunning scenery, including weeping willows along the river banks, lush green water meadows, and picturesque Suffolk countryside 
  • Ramblers will be in their element here — walk in the footsteps of artist Thomas Gainsborough by following the Gainsborough Trail
  • Stuck for Christmas gift ideas? Give a dining, spa, activity, theatre or hotel experience, and create a memory


The Mill Hotel in Sudbury is surrounded by the stunning Suffolk scenery. The property is nestled on the banks of the River Stroud and has many original features, including a working water wheel, and exposed beams and brickwork. 

The restaurant serves modern British cuisine and offers a varied menu, including options for vegetarians and vegans alike. 

Standard Double Rooms are located either in the Mill building itself, in the riverside wing, or in the cottage. Superior Double Rooms are in the main hotel and feature views over the water meadows or the mill pond. 

The 18th-century artist Thomas Gainsborough captured many of Sudbury's picturesque landscapes — follow in his footsteps with the 3.5-mile Meadow Walk, part of the Gainsborough Trail, which features Sudbury's ancient water meadows. The walk begins in Sudbury town centre by the Kingfisher Leisure Centre. 

You can also explore the 50.3-hectare Sudbury Common Lands, a local nature reserve, which is right outside the hotel, or hike the 5.5-mile National Trust Three Mills walk. This walk stretches from Long Melford to Sudbury and starts at National Trust-owned Melford Hall (a 10-minute drive away), and takes in Borley Mill, Brundon Mill, and Sudbury Mill.

Bury St Edmunds, Colchester, and the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, made famous by the paintings of John Constable, are within 35 minutes' drive of the hotel

We found the staff, with no exceptions, very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. On requesting another room, as we were on the top floor and I experience knee problems, I asked if we could have a ground or first floor room. For a supplement of £10 they were able to put us in a first floor superior room, which was excellent.

The Mill is in a good location for visiting Constable country. The walks from the hotel across the meadows are very good as is the bus route into Ipswich.

I have limited mobility and there wasn't a ground floor room available and as there is no lift I found negotiating the steep stairs difficult.
