We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Highwaymans b&b, which I cannot recommend highly enough. Our room was large and spotlessly clean with a wonderfully comfortable bed. Adjoining our room was a twin room for our two boys complete with books and toys for them to play with (a great touch). The owner Juliet is a lovely hostess... More

Our first trip to Suffolk and we were both pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation laid on for us. Very spacious and clean rooms, excellent attentive staff and the cooked breakfast was first class. All in all, very good.

The B&B is so nice. The room we had were so, beautifully decorated. The breakfaost was really good. A weekend here filled up our batteries. There are many good places to eat i Bury St. Edmunds nearby. We will be back!

We had a super stay at Highwaymans, staff were friendly and helpful. The setting were beautiful and great place to switch off from the world. We sat outside in the sun on arrival which was wonderful. I would highly recommend if you need a place to stay.

Being in the English country in an old vineyard, you can enjoy the quiet and the relaxation of a classy B@B. Juliet is kind hostess. Stylish breakfast in the Gallery. I lived there for about two months and I strongly recommend it.

Rang to book accommodation this morning 5 June 2015. Carol quoted me a price of £60 per room for two rooms. She then rang back fifteen minutes later to inform me that she had made a mistake and the cost was - in fact - £80 and £120. I asked her to speak to the owner and see what could... More

Thank you Sir for the taking time to write a review with regards to our telephone conversation on Friday morning. Its very hard for me to elaborate on a constructive management response as I clearly apologised for the confusion of rates and I most certainly did NOT hang up the telephone and most importantly you have not stayed at my...

The B&B is engaged in events such as wakes and clay shooting which seems to be the focus of their interest. We were not welcomed on arrival (a wake was in progress) and from a list of names on the reception door we were directed to our room which had our name stuck on the door. Breakfast was a self...

I occasionally have to visit Bury St Edmunds for work. I have stayed at the Highwaymans twice and will have no hesitation in booking again. The Highwaymans is great value for money, the owners friendly and the service excellent. The rooms are large and clean (great shower) and the the breakfast good with lots of choice. And then there is... More

My family and I recently hosted a wake here for after my mother's funeral. The location was ideal as it was close to the A14 and only a few miles from the West Suffolk Crematorium. Juliet was wonderful handling all our wishes with efficiency and understanding. The Highwayman's provided a private venue in beautiful surroundings. The food was excellent and... More
