Our one night stay at the Guinea House was exceptional from the house itself to the host and hostess, Bill and Gillian, and the breakfast. It was a treat to stay in a house over 400 years old and furnished with every comfort.

Thank you Bill for a wonderful, comfortable cosy and delightful stay in Guinea House. It was unfortunate for us that Gillian was away however you made sure that we had everything we could wish for and more. To have tea in the beautiful garden not long after arriving set the tone for our two night stay. Together with fellow guests,... More

A delightful B&B. The building and rooms are full of character, as befits a house in Lavenham. The bed was enormous and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. I could find no fault with it, even if I wished to.

Every now and again during a holiday we've been prone to come across an overnight stay that proves to be so memorable yet when we try to pinpoint exactly what made it so special we're unable to say. Usually it's the location, the view, the breakfast, the sense of decadent luxury you've wallowed in overnight; certainly a combination of all... More

We spent a night here in January. The house is a lovely timbered old Lavenham cottage, with pretty chintzy rooms. Our beds were comfortable and the en suite produced plenty of hot water. Breakfast was excellent and our hosts charming.

This small but perfectly formed B & B is just what is needed for those who want a quiet stay in a lovely building which is stuffed full with interesting pieces from Bill and Gillian's fascinating life. In addition, they are more than accommodating in terms of breakfast requirements.

Beautiful and charming house. Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed it so much. The bed was so comfortable and the linen was 5* grade. It was near all the shops and restaurants. Owner was friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend to friends.

Lavenham is a beautiful little town/village and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Guinea House where we stayed while there for a wedding. We stayed for two nights and the owners, Bill and Gillian are wonderfully welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is very tasty and not greasy like a full English can sometimes be. The room we had was very... More

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. The first contact to the owners was via email - which was quickly responded to with all the information i needed. The booking was then made via phone and the owner was very helpful. The building is absolutely lovely. The room we stayed in was fantastic. Separate bathroom off a private... More

My husband and I and our twelve year old son have just returned home from a nights stay at Guyinea House Bed & Breakfast. What a lovely couple who are running it and what a truly fabulous house. Our bedroom was so pretty. The location is excellent as just a short simple walk to the centre where we had a... More
