The hotel was more like a welcoming home. The hosts were very helpful, even carried my bag. Breakfast was a delight as was my lovely room.

I can't fault my stay in any way. I arrived very late at night due to delayed flights. The owners had already emailed instructions to me for my late arrival. My room was immaculately clean, the bed was comfortable and the linen soft and exquisite. There was a container of tiny homemade shortbreads with the tea and coffee facilities and I wasn't able to resist one... then ate them all! In the morning, breakfast was served in the dining room - it was delicious and beautifully presented. I have no hesitation in recommending Cumquat House. Marie and Peter are exceptional hosts, gracious and welcoming. I'd stay again in a heartbeat, and would recommend them to anyone.

Be aware there are a number of narrow stairs to navigate. Lovely homemade biscuits in room. Scrumptious continental breakfast included. Very quiet. Air conditioning and fan. Roomy modern bathroom. A very enjoyable stay. My new “go to place” to stay when in Ipswich.

A beautiful old building with a comfortable room. Our room had a good-sized balcony. I felt very rushed at breakfast , and perhaps both hosts could have served, so that it was calmer and i could have had coffee when i wanted it. T he breakfast included home made individual quiches which were lovely. The stairs are very steep and the outside steps have no handrail. So a mixed experience, but so much nicer than a motel

Hi Joy. Thank you for your review. At Cumquat as owner operators ,our system is tea and coffee is served with toast at the end of the meal. The outside steps do have the wall of the steps to hang on to as the Cumquat is over 100 years young. There is a front entrance two steps. Kind regards. marie and Peter

A lovely charming ‘old’ house, tastefully decorated. Modern facilities, great breakfast. A nice short stay. Close to central Ipswich and Queens park.
