we have just got back for the second time staying at home from home, as usual Lisa was so lovely
and accommodating, we could not fault anything, warm comforting room and bed and spotlessly clean, and the breakfast is amazing. Well done Lisa! will look forward to the next time.. Love Gloria and Trevor xxxx

This is an imaginatively converted property which offers something for holiday makers, business travellers and anyone who has reason to come and enjoy this part of the Suffolk countryside and shoreline.
Lisa is a modern, and model, proprietor who believes in traditional service quality and values and maintains a very clean and bright home. As the name suggests, everyone is encouraged to be "at home" here.
Leiston is not an obvious holiday location compared with say Aldeburgh or Southwold but it is very well positioned and "Home from Home" provides very good value for money. We would certainly return here if we were to stay over in this area again.

Room Tip: We chose the family room with ensuite shower room, which is at the front of the house on a fairly bu...

Returned home today after a last minute short break. We were met with a warm welcome which carried on throughout our four night stay. Ground floor room was clean and roomy with quality furnishings. We had a small ensuite cloakroom and use of two shower rooms. These; along with the rest of the property were kept clean and in very good repair. Breakfast was very tasty and Lisa's "girls" deserve a special thank you for the scrumptious eggs. We found the location handy for many of the beautiful seaside resorts and villages. Hopefully we will be able to return to the area and stay at Home from Home many more times.

We decided at the last minute (literally)to visit Suffolk. Had to take advantage of that hot weather before it was gone ! Not much time to do any research but came across Home from Home Guesthouse and the reviews on here clinched it. No regrets at all. This is an excellent bed & breakfast. It is ideally located for exploring this area. The house is clean and comfortable. Lisa, the owner, is down to earth, friendly and helpful. She is also a good cook. Breakfast had lots of choices, was well presented, and the "Full English" scored 10/10 - according to my husband who hardly ate anything more until the evening ! My scrambled eggs (from Lisa's hens) were excellent too. We would definately stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending "Home from Home" to others. I have never written a review before but felt that this establishment merited my first attempt.

This B&B has been renovated to a very high standard and is full of nice little touches inside and out incorporating original and modern features. We stayed in a lovely double room which had en-suite toilet and sink with the use of two separate bathrooms. The breakfast was excellent with an extensive selection. The ultimate accolade came from my partner when she said 'I could live here'.

Home from Home is exactly what it says. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and clean and both the ensuite showers and the shared bathrooms are immaculately maintained. The beds are large and comfortable and each room has free view TV. There is also a comfortable guest lounge downstairs with various board games for guests use. Lisa is very friendly and welcoming and willing to help in any way she can. Her breakfasts are better than many hotels and the breakfast room is cosy and inviting. Since we first stayed at Home from Home we have been back a further 3 times and we will come back again (and again). We would highly recommend Lisa and her modern, inviting and cosy guesthouse.

Room Tip: Although a little more expensive, the guest room with en suite shower provides a little more privacy...
