We were in the Ipswich area for a Family get together and Claydon was just a few miles away. Arriving very late on Friday evening it was refreshing to find very helpful and welcoming staff at Reception. Our room was large and very clean, with a bed the size of the Wirral. A good nights sleep was punctuated by the... More

Just back home from a 2 night stay in the Claydon Country House Hotel. Staff were excellent, restaurant staff just as good. Room clean and tidy. (2nd floor) The main problem we had was the shower, it would have been just as effective to stand under a dripping tap, It took ages to get properly washed and rinsed. . The... More

Although we live only a short distance from Claydon Country Hotel we often take advantage of the Fine Dining and did so again this evening. As usual the food is 10 out of 10 but as experienced on other occasions their front of house needs addressing, would be nice to see them in a uniform and definitely more friendly, and... More

I stayed here for two nights on a weekend break to Suffolk. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable, with good air conditioning to regulate the temperature. The food in the restaurant was excellent on both nights I stayed there. I would certainly stay there again if I was in the area.

We had 2 comfortable nights when using this hotel to visit Suffolk. The hotel is very convenient with good road links to surrounding areas. We asked for a quiet room and were given very quiet accommodation at the rear of the hotel - a few banging doors from those going to work in the morning. The room was adequate but... More

Large comfortable room with all that you could expect. Shower curtain badly stained and needs replacing. Apart from that, very good. Well positioned near A14. Friendly helpful staff at reception. We ate at pub across the road. Dinner on Sunday at hotel only available between 7-8!! Even then choice of roasts only. So can't make any comment re:food. Hotel clean,... More

Stayed here for around 3 months while working locally, normally during long stays in hotels certain things can begin to annoy you over the weeks and months but found Claydon was more like a home from home. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is way above standards, something like you would find out of a Michelin star... More

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
