Positive Reviews

Friendly and welcoming hosts

Guests have plenty of nice things to say about the welcome they received from Steve and Diane, the hosts at the Walnuts Country House. Guests are given all the information they need to make the most of their stay and feel assured that further assistance is readily available if needed.

Excellent quality accommodation

The quality of the accommodation offered, whether it be a room or a cottage, almost unfailingly impresses guests. Cleanliness and comfort seem to come as standard while guests also note the pleasing extra touches such as red rose flowers and sumptuous bathrobes. Guests who stayed in a cottage loved the hot tub and private courtyard.

Appealing location

The setting of the Walnuts Country House holds great appeal for guests. The highlight is how secluded the property is while managing to remain within easy reach of the centre of Mildenhall, as well as destinations such as Cambridge and Peterborough.

Negative Reviews

Very occasional complaints about decor

A very small number of guests found the decor in the cottages was a little dated or at least not to their tastes. On the plus side, so few guests share this opinion that you tend to lean toward the positive descriptions of the rooms and cottages for an accurate account.

Some rooms are not en-suite

A few guests mention that their room was not ensuite and, instead, offered access to a private bathroom on the main landing. Also, it appears that this bathroom, at least, is carpeted, which guests thought was a potential hygiene issue.

Wi-Fi sometimes disappoints

Again, this is not a regular concern, but a handful of guests mention they were unable to access the Wi-Fi in the property. Others found the connection was a little hit and miss though many encountered no issues.
