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.

We really enjoyed our time. The room was lovely and the staff were just amazing especially Mariana who went above and beyond for us and the chef who went out of his was to find gluten free items for my husband. Would highly recommend.

After the COVID-19 restrictions were eased we decided to get away for a couple of days. This wonderful little hotel came up and we booked it. On arrival we were greeted and checked in without fuss. The room (206) was lovely, very clean, well furnished and had ice cold air conditioning which was definitely needed during the May/June Bank Holiday 2021. We had dinner on our second night and it was extremely well presented and tasted just as good. Sarah (Deputy Manager) was very attentive and made our stay very welcoming, a very professional member of staff. On our departure day we decided to have a grab and go breakfast so we could make a head start to our next destination in the next county. The breakfast was exceptional, a hot sandwich, fruit juice, yogurt, fruit, cupcake, energy bar, bite size cheese, it lasted for our entire day. We recommend this gem of a hotel and would definitely visit again.

Pleasant hotel whose greatest assets are its staff. They really made us feel welcome and were ever so helpful and obliging. The hotel itself is a little tired but nothing specific that you would complain about. The food was excellent.

Couple of hiccups on arrival but overcome as they should be and considering the hotel had only been open a week after 7 months on mothballs they did well. Perhaps the room could have been a bit better but plenty of hot water, food served in accordance with Covid rules which needed a bit of getting used to but staff lovely. Good parking and wifi throughout. Time needed to get staff back and back to normal.

Located on the outskirts of Ipswich and offering a great value deal the BW Claydon was our home for one night. The included dinner was lovely and the grab-and-go breakfast option was a good alternative in current times. Really friendly and helpful staff, who seemed so pleased to have the hotel open to guests again. Room was fine, most importantly the bed was comfy and the noise minimal from outside/other rooms.
