Some lovely - touches, would definately go back again when i need to stay in Ipswich. In room breakfast, full fridge with everythng from fruit, juice, cheese, butter, milk, breakfast cereals, bars, and criosants, and sliced bread. VERY IMPRESSED.

The Grove Guest House was overall a lovely experience - very comfortable and accommodating with nice extra touches (the stocked breakfast fridge was particularly appreciated). The owners were very accommodating with our arrive and check out times, and even had a US-UK travel adaptor to lend. The room was quite spacious and very well stocked. Overall an excellent experience.

I am very pleased you had a comfortable stay with us. We try and provide everything our guests need during their stay and sometimes a little bit more. I have many adapters that I have purchased or other guests have left behind. It is surprising how many times they are borrowed! We also try, where possible, to be a little... More

Not the nicest part of town, but this b&b is just great. Contact with Carol before we arrived was polite and efficient. She provided all the information we could ask for. We had the use of a private car park- another plus-. Our room,(no.4), is on the first floor and has a big bay window. It is well furnished, has... More

Thank you for your positive comments regarding your stay. We have had a very good response to the breakfast arrangements here. We feel we offer a different strand to some establishments and choice is all about selecting the product for you. Our close proximity to town outweighs the residential streets, if being near to local amenities and the waterfront is... More
