“Nothing too much trouble”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Our family booked 4 rooms for an overnight stay and we were delighted with everyone of them. The attention to detail was just amazing and it was just like 'home from home'. The food was wonderful, the fresh fruit salad was to die for and the 'black pudding' just melted in the mouth! I Excellent service and I lust need an excuse to go there again!

I have stayed in the Ipswich area for work many times and no other comes close to the team at Sidegate Guest House, friendly-very clean and of the best breakfast I have had in 20 years of being on the road.

I stayed overnight at the Sidegate Guest House due to local business commitments and have to say that I would recommend this establishment to anyone whether they are travelling solo or in a family group. Having previously stayed in the Ipswich area with little satisfaction in the calibre, cost or cleanliness of the B & B's chosen,the Sidegate changed all that as they are clean, tidy, friendly, comfortable and offer an excellent service. I look forward to returning to this area and meeting up with Richard and Sally again in the near future.

Room Tip: All rooms are of excellent quality, I requested a superior double which was provided and lived up to...

Just backing up all of the other reviews. I stayed here as the Holiday Inn I normally stay in was fully booked.
The service was great. Room clean & tidy and breakfast was excellent.
Short taxi ride in to Ipswich Centre.

I stayed here with three friends. We were new to the area and from chekcing on transportation to making us delicious breakfasts each day, Richard and Sally were so helpful and accommodating. Their living room is so comfortable and conducive to great conversation and feeling at home. I would recommend this highly to anyone.

Stayed with Richard and Sally on Saturday night. They couldn't have been more helpfull and made myself and my wife feel right at home as soon as we walked in through the door. Great room, very comfortable, huge bed and after a good night's sleep a fantastic breakfast. We stayed in 3 B+B's over the weekend and this was by far the best. Next time we are in Ipswich we will definitly stay here again.

Room Tip: I would guess that all the rooms are first class.

I would recommend this guesthouse to other friends visiting in Ipswich as the service was absolutely perfect. The hospitality was superb and the guest house could be rated at better than a 5* star hotel. I was greeted by Richard and his labrador and nothing was too much trouble. I stayed in the en-suite Superior single room with a queen size bed. The food was fresh and the full english breakfast was exceptional. I couldnt remember how to work out how to use the flat screen TV to access sky channels on the following night, but it was nice to relax and enjoy the quietness. Richard and his wife the owners were nice, kind people and made me feel very at home. The facilities has car parking at the front and is situated in the quiet area of the town. Well worth a visit if you come to visit Ipswich.
