If you're planning a quick trip towards Ipswich (for whatever reason) this B&B is really close to the train station, a 10-15 minute walk to the center. The staff is truly friendly and helpful at any time. Rooms usually include breakfast, which offers you quite a variety (eggs, bacon, sausages, toast, cereal, fruits) plus the usually coffee/tea/OJ. Definitely worth the...

We were staying in Ipswich to attend a night out with friends. We found it difficult to locate hotels that could guarantee parking so decided on the Bridge Guest House as they have a very large car park on the side. We took the ensuite double. The manager emailed us a day or so before and asked how we wanted...

Nice place to stay, very friendly owner & staff with good breakfast. Fast Wi Fi connection in rooms. Clean, quiet & comfortable. Five minutes (if that) walk from the railway station. Basic, yes but you get what you pay for & I've paid a lot more for a lot worse.

This is a good place to stay. Very reasonable priced, clean and comfortable beds. There was a family group booking of 16 of us who just needed a place to rest for the night after attending a party in Ipswich. The owner Mr Hussain was very accommodating. So close to the Ipswich Train station and town center. Breakfast was very...

The best thing about this place is the breakfast which was okay, but only if u like Turkey bacon. The room was horrible and looks like it was last updated in 1985. The shared shower/toilet was an repugnant experience that I would not recommend and the tap water in the room had an unpleasant fizzing sensation. However it was extremely...

This hotel is in a great location for the station, very good value for money (half the price of the next cheapest hotel I could find when I booked), and the staff are very friendly. Don't be put off by the negative reviews which are unrealistic, yes it's not the ritz but then it doesn't pretend to be either. The...
