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

Guinea House was a beautiful, historic home with incredible gardens. The hosts were a lovely couple who were very helpful and the breakfast was wonderful. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and getting to explore the gorgeous village and nearby shops.

We enjoyed our two night stay here at the Guinea House. Street parking was easy to find outside and we enjoyed the short stroll to the Market Place every day. Gillian and Bill were lovely hosts offering to book our evening meals for us in local restaurants. The accommodation and breakfast was perfect for my husband and I along with... More

Good things: Run by friendly, helpful couple; room very rich in character; generous, well-made breakfast; beautiful garden. Bad things: Cheapest, tackiest self-assembly bed frame that £60 could buy. Creaks like an old ship and detracts from all the beautiful, old furniture in the room. Gillian raves about her green credentials but the preserved head of a tiger watches you eat... More
