This hotel although billed as in Ipswich it is miles away from the town. it is only a very small hotel and not disabled friendly as it accessed by steps. The bedroom we were allocated was incredibly old fashioned and shabby. The bar is part of the small reception area and manned part time by anyone passing!. The small restaurant...

Stayed the one night after my wedding in there honeymoon suite! At £135 for the night I feel over priced for what we got! Room was very dated and full of old chunky furniture! The hotel is an old converted building, so it's creeky and an odd layout! Ample parking out the back and breakfast service was excellent! All staff...

Just returned from a Valentines meal which I can only describe as first class, the chef is outstanding. We have been to the Claydon Country Hotel many a time, and came last year for Valentines and the food as always is 10/10.

I stayed here on business and the hotels reception areas are quite small and the rooms are quite dated. However despite this the rooms are extremely clean and the staff could not be more accommodating . They made me a lunch that was not on the menu and then also a dinner which they agreed to serve in my room....

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.

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
