Ashgrove Guesthouse
Ranked #23 of 35 Ipswich B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We have just returned from a brilliant weekend exploring Suffolk, and stayed at Ashgrove Guesthouse. What a delight. Your own self contained 'suite' of Lounge, two bedrooms and bathroom (actually a 'wetroom'.) Colin & Jan are superb hosts and as others have said, treat you more as friends. Nothing is too much trouble, local knowledge of places to visit is in abundance and their home and garden are lovely. The food is delicious and Colin's Full Breakfast just has to be experienced, and Dexter the Bulldog is a real character. If your looking for the perfect base to explore Suffolk, this is it. We'll definitely be returning !

My wife and I, both bus pass holders, were so impressed by the overall standard of welcome, accommodation and food I have decided for the very first time to add a comment on Tripadvisor. In short if you wish to stay in a beautiful home in a superb setting with a genial host with a handsome Bulldog then stay at the Ashgrove. Thank you Colin for Thursday night (8 Aug) and a breakfast that could not be faulted. Next trip for the relatives will include you. Thanks again. Nev and Coral.

What a find - excellent value for money, beautiful guest suite (two bedrooms, lounge and bathroom, totally self contained) together with a wonderful breakfast each morning. Perfect! Colin & Jan welcome visitors into their lovely home and make them feel like friends. Use of their games room was an added bonus, as was the presence of Dexter the bulldog, who made friends with all of us ( but was never allowed near the guest accommodation, for those who are not so keen on dogs). The lounge was a big plus for us as a family of four (specially catered for as the suite is really for three) as we could all be together to talk or watch a film and have a bedtime drink together, something we struggle with in hotels when we are in two bedrooms. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area. Oh, and the beds are super comfy and the area very quiet so slept like proverbial logs.

Myself and a friend stayed at Ashgrove Guesthouse and instantly felt at home with the warm welcome from Colin and Dexter ( his bulldog! ) The rooms are lovely and you have your own suite upstairs with a TV and mini fridge! As we had no car, Colin was kind enough to pick us up from our venue in the evening in his very smart Limousine! The Breakfast the next morning was exceptional too! Right from the booking of the Guesthouse through to our departure , Colins Hospitality and willingness to help was exceptional! Can't wait to go again!
