Agellus Hotels was founded in 2004 with the aim to create an exceptional collection of individual hotels and restaurants. The group currently owns three successful properties in Suffolk, including Tuddenham Mill, The Ship Inn at Dunwich and The Westleton Crown. All these hotels are unique with a strong reputation for their personal and friendly service, immaculately designed bedrooms, locally sourced and accomplished food and overall attention to detail. 

Agellus Hotels acquired both inns on 6th October 2015 and Operations Director Rufus Harper has said, “This is an exciting time for Agellus Hotels, The Lifeboat and The Chequers are properties we have known and admired for some time and we felt the acquisitions presented an opportunity for us to bring some investment and experience to them to get them back to their glorious best. We are looking forward to building on the hotels existing character and reputation and developing the offers with the teams on site to delight our future guests. We are confident they will once again be two of the best places on the North Norfolk coast to stay, dine and unwind.”
