In a week I was travelling a lot for work this was a great stop off. Nothing flashy but I needed to have a meal, put my head down and wake refreshed. Staff were very friendly in a meaningful way: not just some company script.

Went for meal with work colleagues and paid £35 per head for a cold Christmas dinner Which was cold and I won't be back the hotel itself was ok but expect more for the money that was paid hotel was busy on the night but I don't think that is no excuse for cold grub at this price

Clean and comfy hotel. Only stayed one night for family get together nearby. Lovely cooked breakfast was worth the waiting for! Have stayed here a few times the rooms at the rear of the hotel are more modern whilst at the front they are more quirky.

An amazing evening with Frankie (head chef) and all the lovely staff. They helped me organise an evening for my daughter's 16th. A three course meal for 13 people. The room was lovely, the staff were attentive and the food was gorgeous. No complaints from anyone. They couldn't have done anything more for us. The night was one to remember...

Our first visit at the recommendation of our guests, and what a pleasure it was. Head waiter was excellent, he achieved that great balance between being friendly without being over familiar; was knowledgeable without showing off. The lunch menu was interesting and varied, three of us chose pasta and one seafood. Very tasty and good sized portions; though we still...

I did'nt get a great night sleep. The walls between rooms are way to thin!! Hearing the lady next door goto the loo and also hearing a guy snoring from somewhere else is not great. This place needs an update - it's very shabby.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The BEST WESTERN Claydon Country House Hotel is handily situated off the A14 and only 5 miles West of Ipswich town centre. A spacious country house hotel, it offers rural character as well as modern convenience. That makes it the perfect venue for business trips and stop-overs! Small enough to ensure individual attention, yet spacious enough for a comfortable stay, this smart hotel is a real gem. A Victorian style dining room and picturesque gardens only add to the appeal! Excellent road links to Norwich, Colchester and Cambridge make the hotel a great place to do business. You'll have everything you need onsite, and you'll never be far from the area's many recreational attractions. ... more   less
