    We stayed for 2 days with a couple of friends for visiting Stockcar Wordfinal at Foxhall Stadium. Very nice and clean rooms. Good breakfast and friendly staff. If we come back to Ipswich, we will definately choose for the Old Times Guesthouse.

    I'm sorry I don't think you have to get childish/rude just because producers push you. It does not help your business, you need to put the opinions of your business first.
