Negative Reviews


Located on a busy road

The Horseshoes is situated on the major road to Lowestoft which can get quite busy at times and this was a source of disturbance for some guests. Guests also report that the b&b is quite isolated with the nearest shops a mile away in Scole.


Rooms need updating

There is a general consensus amongst guests who have stayed here that the rooms would benefit from updating. In particular, the bathrooms are showing their age and there are reports of peeling wallpaper in places. Some questioned whether the prices charged were too much considering the quality of the accommodation.


Rooms separate from the pub

It seems that the rooms are not part of the main pub building which some guests found a little inconvenient. The rooms are also accessed by an external staircase that can be a little daunting in the darkness.
