Fast efficient booking including confirmation email and invoice. Good friendly service, comfortable rooms, clean and tidy. 10 minute drive, 40 minutes walk from the high St, £6.30 taxi to town. Not a lot of meal opportunities nearby.

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

We were offered a jug of cold drinking water and a flask of ice-cold milk, there were plenty of tea/coffee making items provided in the room.It... More

My room was a Superior Double and had everything I needed - television etc. The guest house is spotless and there is great attention to detail. I was Room Only so can't comment on breakfast. The only gripe I would have is don't stand... More

I stayed for 2 single nights at the beginning of June 2014. Again everything you could think of that you might need was provided. Excellent for helpfulness, friendliness and cleanliness. All in all made for a relaxing stay. Like staying with a friend can't wait to go back.

We stayed one night only as we were attending a friend's funeral and were persuaded to book Sidegate Guest House by the previous glowing recommendations and so very glad we did. Our room was extremely pristine and comfortable, the room drinks included everything we wished and Wayne gave us fresh milk in a flask and a jug of water. The... More

This was the largest B and B I stayed in during a 6-week trip of Britain (6 or 7 rooms, think) and they gave the same amount of individual service as places with only one or two rooms! Wayne and Tracie did so many kind and helpful things for me that I can't list them all here but driving me... More

The accommodation was absolutely excellent for a number of reasons: -- all the rooms have been recently renovated with ensuite bathrooms and comfy beds -- the owners are lovely - warm and welcoming -- the B&B is on a quiet Ipswich neighbourhood street...
