This is genuine value for money find. Situated in a small village with just commuter traffic and convenient to the main A14 and Ipswich. There is a large car park around the back of the hotel. The main road buzzes in the back a bit - not troublesome though. Some useful local shops including a good coop. We stayed for... More

I stayed at this hotel for a week whilst working in Ipswich and it is definately the best that I have stayed in in the area. It is very clean and comfortable. The staff were marverlous, taking time to chat (I was on my own) and even remembered what I liked (and didn't like) for breakfast each day! The breakfasts... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The BEST WESTERN Claydon Country House Hotel is handily situated off the A14 and only 5 miles West of Ipswich town centre. A spacious country house hotel, it offers rural character as well as modern convenience. That makes it the perfect venue for business trips and stop-overs! Small enough to ensure individual attention, yet spacious enough for a comfortable stay, this smart hotel is a real gem. A Victorian style dining room and picturesque gardens only add to the appeal! Excellent road links to Norwich, Colchester and Cambridge make the hotel a great place to do business. You'll have everything you need onsite, and you'll never be far from the area's many recreational attractions. ... more   less
