THE WAVENEY TODAY
About The Hotel
Situated in the picturesque Waveney Valley, the Waveney House Hotel boasts a superb river location with stunning views across the surrounding countryside.
Its peaceful setting is perfect for relaxing yet is also close to the town centre of Beccles with its shops, cafés and historic places of interest, making it an ideal base for river activities or discovering the delights of the area.
The hotel offers 12 luxury bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and each individually styled. Both our Crowfoot Suite and the Le Grys Suite boast not only a four-poster bed, but also exceptional views across the river and Gillingham Marshes.
Steeped in history, the hotel was built in the early 16th Century during the reign of King Henry VIII. The first owner William Rede I, was the first Lord of the Manor of Beccles, after the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
The current building retains a lot of the original features of that period, including the vaulted oak-beamed ceilings to the second floor accommodation. This is combined with thoughtful and tasteful décor to create a charming atmosphere.
Parking is provided for those arriving by car and moorings can be booked in advance for those arriving by river.
