“Truly excellent guest house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

Home from Home is exactly what it says. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and clean and both the ensuite showers and the shared bathrooms are immaculately maintained. The beds are large and comfortable and each room has free view TV. There is also a comfortable guest lounge downstairs with various board games for guests use. Lisa is very friendly and welcoming and willing to help in any way she can. Her breakfasts are better than many hotels and the breakfast room is cosy and inviting. Since we first stayed at Home from Home we have been back a further 3 times and we will come back again (and again). We would highly recommend Lisa and her modern, inviting and cosy guesthouse.

Room Tip: Although a little more expensive, the guest room with en suite shower provides a little more privacy...

Beautiful house, very clean. Owner Lisa was very friendly & could not have been any more helpful.

Rooms were clean & tidy with TV & we also had wifi. We liked the additional guest's lounge / dining area as we were staying with friends so could relax outside of our rooms - very personal service & the best B&B we've stayed in.

Thank you for the reviews, it helped us choose Home from Home, and as previously said it really was home from home , The house & Lisa was very welcoming, and we were delighted with our room. Great idea to have wifi.
Breakfast set us up for the day, loved the fresh eggs. We would recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front are brightest.

Lisa's newly refurbished b&b offers luxury but is a home from home as stated in the name. Loved the fresh eggs for breakfast and meeting the hens who laid them!

I stayed at Home from home for one night on a birding trip to Suffolk and I was blown away by the excellent standard of accommodation that is offered there. Every small detail was taken care of and the whole atmosphere of the place was very relaxed, welcoming and friendly. I will certainly return on future visits and cant recommend it highly enough. Also Leiston is a lovely place to stay and I just wish I had more time to explore the area more thoroughly.

We chose Home from Home Guesthouse after reading its reviews on tripadvisor. And we were not disappointed! We can only endorse the comments already made by previous review writers and say that we were totally satisfied with our weekend at this guesthouse and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone planning to visit this area who required b&b accommodation. Leiston is only minutes away from the more touristy places such as Thorpness and Aldeburgh and the RSPB`s flagship reserve at Minsmere. The Long Shop Museum in Leiston is also worth visiting.

Room Tip: Choose one ( of two ) rooms that are completely ensuite to avoid having to make the admittedly very...
