Room was clean although the mattress is probably... 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

We have stayed at this hotel before so decided to use it again for a quick break in Suffolk. Again we didn't have an evening meal at the hotel but ate in a pub nearby. However after a good nights sleep we had a pleasant breakfast in the morning to prepare us for a busy day ahead. We will definitely... 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
