I stayed for 1 night in a double room when I was working around Ipswich. The guesthouse is in a reasonably quiet area & free private parking is possible on site which is a huge plus. The accommodation itself is of an excellent standard - my room was located on the first floor & was really clean with a great... More

Before I start, I hope that I do the place justice in the review, truth be told I can't put into word just how fantastic the Grove Guest House is. When booking the hotel, Carol was friendly and courteous. I received a text message with the door code the day before my arrival and found the room immaculate. The parking... More

I booked the Grove, having read all the good reviews. They were all accurate. The front door is keypad operated which Carol supplied before we arrived. We were straight into the room which had been recently decorated and was spotlessly clean. There was a large corner shower in the bathroom and soft white towels. Beautifully scented shower gel and shampoo... More

I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We do like to think that guests leave us having had a comfortable stay, with all the requirements they need. I know many people check out but would like to visit the town centre or waterfront afterwards; I try to accommodate cars left for an extra duration, space willing! Perhaps... More

I chose this accommodation as it had good reviews, and it lived up to them.

We are pleased to live up to the reviews you had read (that lead to you booking with us). Room 3 is our largest room and great for spreading out and working, as many people do during the week. The breakfast arrangements are different to most guest houses and although some people specify a dietary requirement, most do not. Therefore... More

You had everything you needed in the room as breakfast was ready in the fridge so its handy if you don't mind DIY breakfasts and have an early start. Owners were very helpful. It was a lovely room and provate parking was very handy indeed.
