The rooms are comfortable and spacious. Lisa is so friendly and helpful and is very accommodating. Lisa's breakfasts are the best I've had in any... More

We recently stayed here whilst meeting up with family who were staying around the corner at the Applefields campsite - the B&B is ideally located for trips to local campsites, the beach and Leiston town centre, and Lisa was extremely helpful with organising our arrival time and helping us settle in once we arrived. The room itself was absolutely lovely,... More

Thank you for your review. I am so sorry you did not find the beds comfortable, you should have mentioned it on your stay and I could have tried another room for you.

Cannot fault this excellent guest house. Lisa makes you feel very welcome and goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. Everthing is spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast is first class. We would have no hesitation in recommending Home From Home to anyone. We have already booked out next visit.
