“Home from home Leiston Suffolk”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Home from home is a beautifully refurbished guest house. The wonderful warm and cosy bedrooms with own self contained toilet and wash basin are or the highest quality.
The bathrooms have the modern finishes with power showers and bath/ shower in one of them. The breakfast and dinning room have a full cereal bar. Fully stocked fridge with cool drinks and water.
It also has a cosy lounge to relax in comfort. I would recommend staying here and will stay here again. The host Lisa is friendly and has great knowledge of area, she is always on hand to help. All in all Home from Home guest house is what is says and more. Thank you again.

Stayed January 2014, traveled on business

if you need a place to rest your head in Leiston then this is the perfect choice. We stayed overnight in the most comfortable bed and woke up to the heartiest breakfast. Lisa couldn't have made us feel more welcome. She has truly created a real home from home and it would be a shame for anyone to miss out on the experience.

We stayed two nights and were very impressed by the level of care we enjoyed. Lisa couldn't have been more helpful and the dogs were a delight. Can thoroughly recommend this place; it is very conveniently situated for visiting Aldeburgh, Southwold and Snape Maltings. Very comfortable bed and a delicious breakfast.

Spent a couple of nights whilst in Leiston for a business meeting.

Lisa has created a really excellent Guesthouse and to be perfectly honest, I could not fault it in anyway. Everything we wanted was available, and the two rooms we had were spotless with everything you needed to make it perfect.

I will be coming back to Leiston at some point, and this is the place I'll stay.

My friend Jane and I stayed with Lisa for two nights last week. I put it like that because that is how it feels to stay there - like staying with a friend. It truly is a guest house, with a lovely sitting room for guests, and access to a fridge and microwave if you need them. The rooms in the beautiful house are very comfortable and have everything you need. Lisa and her partner converted the house quite recently, so everything is like new and the décor etc is fresh and smart. Breakfast includes everything you would expect in an English guesthouse, served with great friendliness by Lisa. She has three lovely Labradors, but if you don't like dogs, she will keep them away. I haven't got a dog, but loved the way they showed off how well-trained they are!
The little town is perfectly positioned for exploring the area, including Aldeburgh and Southwold. Lisa provides an impressively efficient information file on restaurants, pubs etc (also available on her website). You can find excellent fish for dinner all over the area, for example (and lovely Adnam's beer).
Living in Leicester, I can't pop over to Aldeburgh for concerts, but now I know where to stay.

Room Tip: Book early if you want an en-suite room. But the shared bathrooms are very good.

We received a warm and friendly welcome from the owner Lisa when we arrived. She was eager to please and make sure that we had everything we could possibly need to ensure our stay was catered for. The house itself was beautiful inside and out. We felt at home the moment we stepped through the door, and it was immaculate. Our room and the beds were extremely comfortable. My mum and I are seasoned travellers and have stayed at many guest houses and B&B's throughout the UK, and we have no hesitation in recommending this lovely guest house to anyone looking for a comfortable home from home place to stay in Suffolk.

We have only stayed at the B&B once but would definately come back again. We were made to feel so welcome when we arrived and the room was of very high standard. There are great facilities - sitting area, dining area with lovely breakfast options that make you feel truely comfortable. And Lisa was very accomodating and happy to help. Definately a "Home from Home" feel.

Room Tip: Book asap so you get the chance to stay here.
