Sidegate House Ipswich

Working locally and needed an overnight stop; arrival welcome was rather rushed, but the room was very good (though kitchen smells drifted in to it during the early evening, and cooking cabbage doesn't win awards...).

Good hospitality tray included the ideal rooibos night-time drink. Cracking nights sleep. Breakfast very good, though the owners having an argument in the kitchen wasn't the best. Also pleased I was first in, as service became erratic later in the meal. Overall though - very good if a little pricey.

Thank you for your review and the overall scores you gave, however we regret that you feel you had a disappointing experience with us with the comments that you made. You say that your welcome was rushed. I recall on your arrival that I asked "if there were two of you as you had booked a double room for two, room only with laterooms" to which you replied "no only me and you would like breakfast", to which we had a joke about and that breakfast wouldn't be a problem as it was the same price for single occupancy of a double room with breakfast as a double room, room only. I also recall after showing you to your room and explaining the

formalities to you having quite a lengthy chat with you as I do with all our guests. I cannot understand the comment about the smell of cabbage drifting into your room and that it doesn't win awards when we didn't even have cabbage and the smell of cooking wouldn't drift into your room. The smell of cooking may have however drifted out of the kitchen when cooking our evening meal this unfortunately cannot be helped. The raised voices you refer to was purely a misunderstanding of another guests order and certainly not an argument as you imply. As for breakfast being very erratic may I say by this time we were busy seeing to other guests needs and breakfasts but recall you were still given a second pot of tea promptly when you asked. As for being a little pricey,

we work extremely hard to keep our very high standards, reflecting in our gold star award and our previous reviews and feel our prices reflects the accommodation we offer.
