Very clean and comfortable bed. Small but compact room, you will have everything you need. It is like a mini hotel. Generous breakfast. 20min walk to ipswich hospital so if you've done a long shift it will be a very long walk. Lovely staff. Will use again.

I travel a lot and the first thing I would always check is the bed. I freak out if there are stains on the sheet or hair on the bed because a comfortable sleep is a MUST and Believe it or not I check carpets too for nail clippings! This Guest House is super spotlessly clean! It's like checking in... More

we were racing up to Ipswich to see my mother in hospital. Not due to arrive until around 9.30 pm but we received a very warm welcome and details of breakfast etc before we went to the hospital. Our room was first class with an ENORMOUS comfy bed, everything anyone could possibly want, a beautiful ensuite and everything was tasteful... More

The welcome was friendly and warm, the whole place absolutely spotless, so much so you would think everything was brand new (but it wasn't)breakfasts were lovely, fresh fruit, yoghurts, and a cooked option. We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night.

This is a real gem. Owners provide a very high level of care and attention. Superb breakfast. Really good facilities. Rooms have all you would expect, shampoos etc. It is a bus ride into town but service is good. Would certainly stay there again.

This guest house is one of the finest that I have ever stayed at. The room was very clean, comfortable and warm. The people here are friendly and cannot do anymore for you to be happy and satisfied. There is a pub not far away offering good quality food at a very reasonable price.
