We stayed at Highwaymans Guest House for one night at we were visiting friends. It was very clean and the grounds that it is set in are beautiful. The only thing I would say is that we didn't see the owner Juliet at all while we were there, which surprised me, we thought we may see her in the morning... More

I have stayed at many hotels in the past due to business commitments and must say this is one of the better ones. From the quiet surroundings to the beautiful sunset I was met with on arrival, was equally impressed by the owners hospitality. The room was spacious & very clean and had a great night sleep. Would highly recommend... More

We found the Highwaymans on the internet when we were going to a celebration at Bury St Edmunds. We had no idea what to expect but were delighted with what we found when we arrived. Set in acres of arable land and woodlands this home offers great comfort, cleanliness and facilities for cooking if you wish to do self-catering. There... More

This stay, with Juliet, was for just one night. The stay's clean, tidy, relaxing, very quiet & I do enjoy the experience. I'm happy with the change from catered breakfast to kitchen access to cereal & toast. This could be a place to stay for business or pleasure.

What a delightful get away from it all retreat. Big room perfect for us and our 2 dogs and acres of land for them to stretch their legs. A real gem of a find, highly recommend The Highwayman for a relaxing break. Clean, comfortable & simple, loved it!

The accommodation is located in a quite area of Risby. It is a family house on a working farm. The accommodation is good and there is plenty of parking. The downside is there is no breakfast included which is not obvious when you book on website which for £80 per night you would expect.

The hotel was nice but it is in the middle of nowhere! Our rooms were very clean. The rooms themselves could do with some maintenance as the window frames had some loose paint. Under the windows they are showing some signs of water damage. The rooms were very warm, the beds are comfy to sleep in. They offer cereal for... More

The Highwaymans Bed & Breakfast is one of the best places we've ever stayed in. Our room was huge, on the ground-floor with big windows, and with its own patio with seats outside overlooking a beautiful garden. All facilities were available and everything was spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. Highwaymans is... More

I stayed at the Highwaymans for 4 nights while taking exams in nearby Higham. My room was spacious and light - great value for money. Lovely breakfast served every morning, great start to each day! Unfortunately one night I didn't get much sleep as a child was screaming throughout the night but I suppose this can't be helped! Very understanding... More
