Very modern, clean room in a convenient location. I stopped there at the end of October and was sent a text by the owner to let me know the code to the front door on the morning of my stay. Free parking was available at the rear of the property. The breakfast is continental, with orange juice, fruit, cereal, toast,... More

Would definitely recommend this warm and welcoming guest house. It was immaculately clean and tidy, very comfortable and the in-room continental breakfast was a lovely touch. All in all fantastic value for money. 10 out of 10.

We stayed here in the biggest/family room, with children (6 & 8) staying on the sofa bed. Carol was a perfect host, made us feel welcome and cared for. Room is spacey, always clean and tidy (when we came in, not always when we left ;)). If you are staying in Ipswich, just a short walk away is the town... More

This guest house we found to be just right for our stay, as it was not far from the town centre either walking or by regular buses with stops nearby!

I have stayed all over the country in hotels, B&B's etc in the last 20 years but think this exceeds them all!! The attention to detail is evident, from the sewing and vanity kits to the info file in the room. The breakfast/snacks idea is inspired - from lovely fresh bread (brown/granary and white) orange juice, water, milk, butter, flora,... More
