“Helpful hosts with comforts of home”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

I stayed here with three friends. We were new to the area and from chekcing on transportation to making us delicious breakfasts each day, Richard and Sally were so helpful and accommodating. Their living room is so comfortable and conducive to great conversation and feeling at home. I would recommend this highly to anyone.

Stayed with Richard and Sally on Saturday night. They couldn't have been more helpfull and made myself and my wife feel right at home as soon as we walked in through the door. Great room, very comfortable, huge bed and after a good night's sleep a fantastic breakfast. We stayed in 3 B+B's over the weekend and this was by far the best. Next time we are in Ipswich we will definitly stay here again.

Room Tip: I would guess that all the rooms are first class.

I would recommend this guesthouse to other friends visiting in Ipswich as the service was absolutely perfect. The hospitality was superb and the guest house could be rated at better than a 5* star hotel. I was greeted by Richard and his labrador and nothing was too much trouble. I stayed in the en-suite Superior single room with a queen size bed. The food was fresh and the full english breakfast was exceptional. I couldnt remember how to work out how to use the flat screen TV to access sky channels on the following night, but it was nice to relax and enjoy the quietness. Richard and his wife the owners were nice, kind people and made me feel very at home. The facilities has car parking at the front and is situated in the quiet area of the town. Well worth a visit if you come to visit Ipswich.

Honestly, I cannot fault this place. The room, the hosts, the facilities, the breakfast - all absolutely perfect. If you are in Ipswich you won't do better.

We stay at many Guesthouses throughout the year with our Guide Dog Pups in Training and have always been pleased with the servicegiven us, but Sidegate Guest House has topped the bill for us so far. From the moment we enquired if there were any vacancies for us Sally and Richard the Owners went out of their way to please and help us in every way. The welcome on arrival after a long drive was so warming and even Eki their chocolate lab was pleased to have a playmate 'most of the time with Darcey our pup being a bit mad still. The rooms were spotless and very relaxing and the breakfast menus were of a 4* star hotel standard if not better. Nothing was too much trouble for this lovely couple and we recommend Sidegate to everyone who wishes to stay in the Ipswich area. Val & Terry - Hertfordshire.

I booked the Superior Single room and as you can see it was a good sized double bedroom tastefully decorated in beige and brown. A nice working flat screen TV and tea/coffee/biscuits. I was welcomed by 'mine host' and given a good brief about the guesthouse, keys etc - very friendly and informative. Free WiFi is included and this worked well.The bathroom was small but functional, exceptionally clean and with a good shower - who could ask for more. Car parking out front. A quiet part of Ipswich with very little noise in the night. Breakfast(or should I say break-feast) served between 7.30/8.30. Sausages, bacon, eggs, musghrooms, toast and beans after cereal and juice. I had to decline the black pudding. A classic english breakfast at its best with the best of ingredients. I look forward to staying again soon.

We stayed here one night on our way from south Dorset to the Norfolk coast and were delighted with the accommodations. Sally and Richards are extremely gracious and friendly hosts -- they made us feel instantly at home, important as we were very tired after a considerably longer than expected travel time (traffic!). We stayed in the family-with-dog room, which has a doorway to the garden, which was very convenient, particularly at 2:30 AM when our dear pooch told us that nature was calling. The room was very comfortable, clean, and cozy, with a super-king size bed. We would certainly look forward to staying here again.
