Thank you for your response to my review. I beg to differ from the remark that the Hotel was very busy. There were only a few tables laid for breakfast and we only saw two other couples and some businessmen, so I fail to see why we could not at least be given a better room.
"I was happy with room 9 ground floor. Quiet road."
"any in main house"
"Ideal for a couple of nights stay or just coming through ipswich."
"Back of the hotel is quieter"
"One over the garden is nice."
