Denise Bartlett, Trivago UK Public Relations, said: “With its friendly owners and hard-working staff, it is easy to see why The White Lodge is our top-rated hotel in the East of England.
“It also has the second lowest average room rate in the region, fighting off competition from hotels with higher price tags.
“The East of England has a good mix of top-rated accommodation, including both B&Bs and boutique hotels.
“The trivago Top Hotel Awards aim to judge all accommodation fairly, whether they are a B&B in Great Yarmouth or a luxury boutique hotel in Newmarket. It is really encouraging to see a range of accommodation, both in terms of price and geographical location, in our top 20.”
