We stayed at the Ship Stores for 3 nights with friends joining us for one night. We had booked a superior room in a separate annexe at the back of the main building and it contained a lovely large, comfortable bed. There was a chest of drawers but no wardrobe. There was a hanging rail but this was directly above... More

Characterful B&B in pretty village in Suffolk countryside. 3 person room was functional but small, with very small shower room en suite. Good if you just want a bed base, not a room to sprawl in. Excellent breakfast and hosts.

Reputed to be a former Ale House for local Shepherds this listed building is not your average Guest House. We stayed in a courtyard room which was tranquil and comfortable. Large room with king size bed, flat screen tv, plenty of kit space and sensible priced mini bar. The en suite was new but was a bit of a squeeze.... More

We stayed here in 2 rooms on a visit to nearby relatives. Rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. On street parking outside but perhaps not ideal. Breakfast really good and hosts really chatty and helpful. Short walk to town centre where there are several good pubs with good menus, and a couple of other restaurants and normal shops etc.

Stayed here with my work Colleague due to working nearby. We received a warm friendly welcome from the Hostess who quickly explained everything including the fact that we could get 15% discount off food in the nearby pub! The bedroom was nicely fitted out and they even supply Cadbury hot chocolate ! Breakfast is not to be missed, the sausage... More

We stayed here the other night. It's quite basic, but it's comfortable and clean and a little bit of village life. We arrived and eventually found Debbie the owner. She was very nice, but seemed a little bit new to the game. The place is nice, not overly modern in decor, and this could improve a bit. The room was... More

I give Ship Stores Guest House 5 stars just for having a fridge in the room, what a bonus, however I am removing a star for the parking, only managed to get outside once in seven days and was forced to park under trees the other days. Debbie was a great host and went out of her way by cooking... More

Absolutely great place to stay, we have just come back and have booked again for next month, we are frequent visitors to Clare and the surrounding areas, and this is the best place by far that we have stayed in, would definitely recommend, could not fault it.

We booked the Ship Stores guest house as a last minute stop over for a wedding nearby, and we could not have been more impressed! We were promptly greeted by the wonderful hosts, who kindly booked us a cab as we were running a little late. We were even bought champagne flutes for a bottle of bubbly we brought with... More

Cant praise this b/b enough. Lovely host in Debbie who met us and showed us the room. Fantastic bed, best nights sleep I have had in many years. Premier Inn wax lyrical about their beds, this was something else, extra large and no expense spared on the quality of linen and pillows. Then the breakfast, OMG , amazing, all cooked... More
