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.

Friendly environment. Excellent Wi-Fi service and free private parking available. The location is well served by public transport and there are shops nearby. On the groundfloor the pub offers drinks, food and a space to manage your own business.

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.
