Found myself in Ipswich in 2013 connected with an interim assignment. Planned for a short term stay at Sidegate GH whilst reviewing my longer term options on accommodation. I ended up staying at Sidegate Guest House for the full term of my assignment. The quality of accommodation and food suited both my pocket and dietary demands. Stayed right through to... 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

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

I stayed for one night in this excellent guest house in a nice district of Ipswich. 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.
