We had a lovely stay at the Home from Home Guesthouse this Bank holiday weekend. Lisa was a wonderful host and was so warm and friendly. We really felt welcome in her lovely home. Our room was very pleasant and the bed very comfy. Everything was very clean. The real stand out thing, though, was the breakfast, which was brilliant!... More

This was by far the best guest house I have ever stayed in - Lisa the owner, could not do enough for our bridal party... The whole experience was so accommodating; the breakfasts were amazing, anything Lisa could do for us - she did. Our en-suite room was large,clean and tidy with everything you could need for a comfortable stay.... More

I stayed at Home from Home in July 2014 while attending a course at the nearby Abby for work. I found the guesthouse welcoming, clean and friendly. After mentioning that I had been warm on the first night Lisa had brought an electric fan to my room for the second night. My room and en suite were very clean and... More

We very much enjoyed our three night stay here. We were made most welcome and the hospitality was generous. Breakfast was very good and the room most comfortable. Highly recommended and ideal for Aldeburgh and Snape at, I suspect, much lower prices than those two venues can offer. Thank you, Lisa. We hope to be back before too long!

The accommodation was spotless and the breakfast was just perfect. We all had exactly what we wanted. We... More

if you need a place to rest your head in Leiston then this is the perfect choice. We stayed overnight in the most comfortable bed and woke up to the heartiest breakfast.
