Best Western Claydon Hotel

Traveler (47)
Room & Suite (42)
Dining (11)


The BEST WESTERN Claydon Country House Hotel is handily situated off the A14 and only 5 miles West of Ipswich town centre. A spacious country house hotel, it offers rural character as well as modern convenience. That makes it the perfect venue for business trips and stop-overs! Small enough to ensure individual attention, yet spacious enough for a comfortable stay, this smart hotel is a real gem. A Victorian style dining room and picturesque gardens only add to the appeal! Excellent road links to Norwich, Colchester and Cambridge make the hotel a great place to do business. You'll have everything you need onsite, and you'll never be far from the area's many recreational attractions.

Thank you for sparing the time to review our hotel, we are sorry we did not meet with your expectations; we have a specially adapted ramp for anyone using a wheelchair needing access to stairs. Unfortunately, this may not have been offered to you during your stay. I will investigate this as a matter of urgency. As a valued customer I hope at some stage you will allow us the pleasure to accommodate you in the future. On behalf of Best Western Gatehouse Hotel; please accept our sincere apologies, many thanks. Yours Sincerely Frankie Manners Operations Manager

We stayed here after travelling down from liverpool for a funeral, the hotel was perfect for what we needed. Nice pub accross the road for the evening and a lovely breakfast in the hotel in the morning. Rooms were clean and comfortable but what really made this hotel stand out

Stayed for a single night on business and found the room clean and comfortable except for the bed which was far too hard for my liking. Dinner was excellent and the staff were helpful and a great laugh. Recommended for business trips in and around the Ipswich area./

Is this Hotel suitable for wheelchair users?
It is situated over levels, there was a wheelchair access, with a lift up a set of stairs for less able, if memory serves me right. Car park was mainly loose chipping and stone.
