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

We only stayed for one night, but felt instantly at home in this friendly but private guest house. The room was large enough for a big comfortable bed, en suite shower room, tea making facilities etc. Breakfast was great, although I wished afterwards that I had been cheeky and asked for a couple of the sausages which are tasty but...

I stayed for two nights with my mother for a family get-together. The room was really comfortable, overlooking the garden, and was spotlessly clean. We were made very welcome by Tracie and Wayne and the breakfast was excellent.

I visited this guest whilst on business, the guest house is closely located nr the city centre, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the room was clean and well presented. The room had all the mod cons anyone would need.

We loved our stay here.

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
