Yesterday, the AA Inspector called at milsoms Kesgrave Hall and awarded them a well-deserved 4 stars. Congratulations must go to Garth, Sarah, Stuart and their respective teams both back and front of house. Gaining another star from the AA is a real achievement and a lot of work has gone into raising the already high standard in some areas.

Actually, it isn’t just a case of being awarded the extra star on the day of the visit. Garth and the team have been beavering away for several weeks making minor improvements to the bedrooms and ensuring that residents have 24 hour bar and room service to name a couple of examples.

Kesgrave Hall 4 Star Hotel always had a four star feel and now it’s official!
