Highly recommend the Verandah House for all visitors and travelers. The warm and friendly atmosphere created by Gianfranco and Suzanne is second to none. They serve a great breakfast, no request too great and all needs met with a smile.

My Wife and I travel quite a lot. Verandah House, ideally located in Stowmarket is a great for seeing Suffolk and East Anglia. Verandah is easily one of the best in our experience.

We decided to book Verandah house on recommendation of a friend for a wedding, and we were certainly not disappointed!!
Very friendly welcome and nothing seems to be too much trouble!
I don't think we have ever stayed in a place that is so beautifully clean!!
Superb breakfast with a great choice of fresh fruit salad, as well as cereals etc..
Would definitely return if in the stowmarket area.. Thank you!

We stayed for four nights in a pleasant room overlooking the neighbouring garden, which contains a lovely pond. Suzanne and Gianfranco are very welcoming and friendly and the guest house is lovely and appointed to a high standard. Here is a lovely homely feel about the place. Our room was a generous size with a large en suite. There was a good selection for breakfast and everything was freshly cooked and very tasty. Stowmarket is just an ordinary town, but it is ideally situated for travelling round some of Suffolk’s best attractions.

Dear Madam

Thank you for your kind comments which we appreciate. We always cook breakfast orders on demand, all produce is fresh and locally sourced. Mid Suffolk is ideal if you want to see all of Suffolk's wonderful landscape and villages, whether inland or by the coast. We hope to welcome you again when you are visiting East Anglia.

Kindest Regards

I booked Verandah House a couple of days before my arrival and was surprised when my booking details alone were required for reservation rather than a deposit. I thought that was very trusting! The reason being there are no credit card facilities but you can pay with euro or sterling on arrival and there is an atm nearby. The location is perfect - right off the High Street. The house is 1700's and in general the decor, furniture etc. were quite quaint and old fashioned. This results in a really nice feeling of stepping back in time. My single room was huge with two single beds and the wooden ceiling beams were visible. There are also sash windows but not compromising your comfort there are also newer double glazed panes on the inside. The breakfast was cooked to order and really nice. The owners were friendly and I would definitely stay again.

We booked this at fairly short notice and arrived quite late at night after a 14 hour journey. Bruce, the gentleman managing the B&B couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We were shown to spotlessly clean attractive rooms which were well equipped and comfortable. Wireless internet was available too, which was most helpful
In the morning, after a comfortable night, we were served an excellent cooked breakfast following a very comprehensive cereal and fruit course.
We weren't around long enough to take advantage of the snack menu or evening meal facility but noticed this being available and might well find it useful in future.
Many thanks to Bruce and to the owners.

As a retired hotel manager of hotels in Earls Court, Bloomsbury, Westminster and Brighton, I am a bit fussy about places I stay - an occupational habit I am afraid. I simply don't know a better place to stay than the Verandah. It is 'simply the best' and run by the nicest couple in the land.

Room Tip: All perfect!
