“Truly lovely time.”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Thank you for the reviews, it helped us choose Home from Home, and as previously said it really was home from home , The house & Lisa was very welcoming, and we were delighted with our room. Great idea to have wifi.
Breakfast set us up for the day, loved the fresh eggs. We would recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front are brightest.

Lisa's newly refurbished b&b offers luxury but is a home from home as stated in the name. Loved the fresh eggs for breakfast and meeting the hens who laid them!

I stayed at Home from home for one night on a birding trip to Suffolk and I was blown away by the excellent standard of accommodation that is offered there. Every small detail was taken care of and the whole atmosphere of the place was very relaxed, welcoming and friendly. I will certainly return on future visits and cant recommend it highly enough. Also Leiston is a lovely place to stay and I just wish I had more time to explore the area more thoroughly.

We chose Home from Home Guesthouse after reading its reviews on tripadvisor. And we were not disappointed! We can only endorse the comments already made by previous review writers and say that we were totally satisfied with our weekend at this guesthouse and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone planning to visit this area who required b&b accommodation. Leiston is only minutes away from the more touristy places such as Thorpness and Aldeburgh and the RSPB`s flagship reserve at Minsmere. The Long Shop Museum in Leiston is also worth visiting.

This is a lovely B & B, very clean and comfortable and a great breakfast. The proprietor Lisa is a brilliant host and can't do enough for her guests. I even went for a walk with her and her lovely dogs (not kept in the guest accomodation) along the beach (and she lent me some wellies!), terrific. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Ask for one of the en suite rooms

I can not express in words how fantastic Home from Home in Leiston, Suffolk, is.

Gorgeous house which has been decorated to a high standard throughout. It is spotless, comfortable and feels like "home".

Lisa, the owner, is a terrific host and can not do enough for you.

This place exceeds in all the right places. Fantastic breakfasts too !

Highly recommended.
