I recently made my third visit here...after the first time this is automatically my first choice. Originally from Ipswich I have lived in Canada since 1967 and return to Ipswich every two years for a re-union with several others from St Margaret's Church (from the 50's and 60s)...cubs. scouts, brownies, guides, youth club, football etc. This was our neighbourhood and...

We based ourselves just north of Ipswich with about a 10/15 walk into town and the marina was another 10/15 mins. We visited the coast and other inland attractions so good location for this. Overall an excellent stay.

What a fantastic find! I really cannot fault this place- it exceeded expectations. From the moment you walk through the door you feel like you are at home. The room we stayed in (5) was light, airy and spacious as well as spotless. The big old wooden carved bed was so comfortable, we seriously thought of strapping it to the... More

There is something very special about this guest house. The owners are dedicated to giving a quality service. The room was great and they spend care and attention on renovation. Quality decor. Perfect location for walking to town and Christchurch park but so peaceful. Locally sourced produce for great breakfast. Would and have already recommended

I would recommend the Melverley Guest House to anyone wishing to stay in Ipswich. It's close to the center in pleasant surrounds with a good pub just down the road. The interior is well appointed and the owners and staff very friendly and helpful.

I did a late booking as I could not get into my usual hotels. Overall I was very pleased with Melverley. Room was small but comfortable and well appointed. Service was good and I would say it is good value for money. Top tip - check in times are very restricted. If you are going to arrive outside of these... More

I was looking for peaceful, friendly, and welcoming accommodation in Ipswich, and hit the jackpot! Booking my room at Melverley was very easy via email and phone, and Kim and Graham went out of their way to assure me that if I arrived early, I should still ring the bell!.... In the event I was 2 hours early and I... More

Just to point out that I haven't actually stayed here! However my experience trying to book was so poor that I had to leave a review. For the night before my wedding I wanted to book somewhere homely for myself and my six bridesmaids, I thought this place looked ideal. To make sure, I asked to have a look round... More

Wow! I must say we are very shocked & saddened to receive this review as we had been communicating with this young couple via email and phone before they arrived to try and view rooms and not once did they say that they were unhappy about our service. Emily L had asked to view the rooms prior to booking which... More

Kim and Graham are wonderful hosts, nothing was too much to ask. Over 6 months of staying at their lovely guest house they looked after my team and I fabulously. They were always informative of what's happening in the local area and places to go to eat. Kim makes a wonderful breakfast to start the day off well. All rooms... More
