Absolutely fantastic experience - the hosts Wayne and Tracy were lovely, chatty and full of reccomendations about the area, which we took them up on and they were absolutely right. The room was beautiful- freshly decorated and newly renovated. I couldn't believe the size of the bed, along with the lovely furnishings, fantastic tea station (Wayne went out of his... More

We had to go to Ipswich to pick up something that my wife had bought from Ebay, as it was too heavy to post. So as we are photographers as well, we thought we would make a weekend of it and see what we could find to take pictures of. We spent sometime on the Internet looking at different hotels... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the SideGate Guesthouse for 5 weeks in September 2014 whilst on a work placement in Ipswich town. Tracie, Wayne & the rest of the family were incredible welcoming and soon made me feel at home. The guesthouse has a relaxed atmosphere and is clean, tidy and has all the facilities you'd need (lounge... More

I stayed here for one night at a weekend. I stay in a lot of hotels around the world but this guest house is as good as any of them. The rooms are tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The cooked breakfast is excellent. The room has everything that anyone would need. There is ample off road parking for the largest... More
