I stayed overnight at the Sidegate Guest House due to local business commitments and have to say that I would recommend this establishment to anyone whether they are travelling solo or in a family group. Having previously stayed in the Ipswich area with little satisfaction in the calibre, cost or cleanliness of the B & B's chosen,the Sidegate changed all...

Just backing up all of the other reviews. I stayed here as the Holiday Inn I normally stay in was fully booked. The service was great. Room clean & tidy and breakfast was excellent. Short taxi ride in to Ipswich Centre.

I stayed here with three friends. We were new to the area and from chekcing on transportation to making us delicious breakfasts each day, Richard and Sally were so helpful and accommodating. Their living room is so comfortable and conducive to great conversation and feeling at home. I would recommend this highly to anyone.

Stayed with Richard and Sally on Saturday night. They couldn't have been more helpfull and made myself and my wife feel right at home as soon as we walked in through the door. Great room, very comfortable, huge bed and after a good night's sleep a fantastic breakfast. We stayed in 3 B+B's over the weekend and this was by...

I would recommend this guesthouse to other friends visiting in Ipswich as the service was absolutely perfect. The hospitality was superb and the guest house could be rated at better than a 5* star hotel. I was greeted by Richard and his labrador and nothing was too much trouble. I stayed in the en-suite Superior single room with a queen...

We stay at many Guesthouses throughout the year with our Guide Dog Pups in Training and have always been pleased with the servicegiven us, but Sidegate Guest House has topped the bill for us so far.

I booked the Superior Single room and as you can see it was a good sized double bedroom tastefully decorated in beige and brown. A nice working flat screen TV and tea/coffee/biscuits. I was welcomed by 'mine host' and given a good brief about the guesthouse, keys etc - very friendly and informative. Free WiFi is included and this worked...

We stayed here one night on our way from south Dorset to the Norfolk coast and were delighted with the accommodations. Sally and Richards are extremely gracious and friendly hosts -- they made us feel instantly at home, important as we were very tired after a considerably longer than expected travel time (traffic!). We stayed in the family-with-dog room, which...
