“Fantastic B & B”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Having just returned home from a 5 night stay at Bulimba I couldn't rate it highly enough. Owners were on holiday but the welcome extended to us by their friends who were looking after the B & B couldn't have been better. Great facilities and just a stones throw from the beach. Fantastic!

Reviewed 8 June 2013

I travel a lot through my work and am often disappointed when the experience differs from the sales pitch given by the proprietor. However, Laine was extremely patient while confirming facilities and location over the phone and I found everything to be above expectations. The guest house is ideally situated, just a 'stones throw' from bars, restaurants and the sea front - yet surprisingly quiet at night.
All areas are spotlessly clean and well presented, but the highlight for me had to be breakfast. Laine prepared a fantastic 'Full English' which set me up for the day ahead.
The Bulimba is exceptionally good value for money and I have requested that my company continues to book here.

I visit family in Felixstowe at least 8 times a year and have therefore stayed in most of the hotels in the town in the last five years. My last 6 stays have been at The Bulimba. I would rather change the date of my visit if they could not accommodate me at The Bulimba. Value for money, spotlessly clean and great value. Thank you Tina & Laine.

We where booked into this lovely B&B for our brother-in-laws wedding. On our arrivel we were greeted by the owners Tina & Laine. We walked in and they made you feel very welcomed and showed us to our rooms. We had such a lovely room that it was like staying in a 5* hotel we could not belive how they made us all feel very welcomed. The rooms where frist class very clean and decor was better than you see in some 5* hotels. The food was surbeb and pleanty of it (far to much for me I must say). Well done tina & laine and WE will be back. If anyone wants a good B&B then you should check this out I can say that you will love it just as we did,and for the price it is well worth it.Thanks once again.

Room Tip: If you want a lovely room then room 2or3 are brill

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Bulimba on a business trip, we were on tour with a show and did a brief stop in felixstowe. When we arrived and shown to our room we were very pleased the room was beautiful with lots of storage space, great tea and coffee facilities and a lovely comfy bed. We slept so well. The bathroom was next door and was very spacious with a huge shower which was lovely. The location of the guest house is great, I only have one complaint, its such a shame because the guest house is beautiful.
Due to our un sociable hours with our job the hosts werent very accomadating when it came to our breakfast, we had payed for a full breakfast however breakfast was only served until half 8 in the morning. When we were getting in from work at 11.30/12am .. the last thing we wanted was to get up for breakfast so early. When we spoke to the landlady about this she was unaccomadating and offered us no solution so we ended up having to spend more of our money to go and find breakfast when we woke up.
Its such a shame because otherwise our stay would of been perfect!
