The welcome was friendly and warm, the whole place absolutely spotless, so much so you would think everything was brand new (but it wasn't)breakfasts were lovely, fresh fruit, yoghurts, and a cooked option. We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night.

This is a real gem. Owners provide a very high level of care and attention. Superb breakfast. Really good facilities. Rooms have all you would expect, shampoos etc. It is a bus ride into town but service is good. Would certainly stay there again.

This guest house is one of the finest that I have ever stayed at. The room was very clean, comfortable and warm. The people here are friendly and cannot do anymore for you to be happy and satisfied. There is a pub not far away offering good quality food at a very reasonable price.

From the road it looks like an ordinary bungalow, but as soon as Tracy opened the door...wow! We had a choice of 2 downstairs rooms, big, warm and friendly. all the facilities you could want and a very handy guide to them and Ipswich. Breakfast special - smoked salmon and scrambled egg, the best ever!

We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay here. We had prior contact with the owners before our arrival & they were most accommodating. Our ensuite room was spotless & very tastefully decorated. A tea tray was in the room to welcome us & there was a comfortable guest lounge. Breakfast was plentiful & delicious and all of the guests were friendly... More
