The East Anglia region

Ipswich is less than an hour from J28 of the M25 and is the county town of Suffolk, perfect as a base to enjoy the Suffolk countryside and Heritage coast.


The Old Neptune is in the heart of the picturesque Marina in Ipswich where many luxury yachts and power cruisers are moored and the excellent bars and restaurants give it a ‘St Katherine’s Dock’ type feel.

"Hidden Gem"

Hidden away right in the middle of Ipswich Marina is this amazing 15th Century house. Every room is amazing and there's so much to explore. The house is really well kitted out with modern applian… More

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review – your host emailed us that you all had a fabulous weekend. Sorry to hear about the hot water; one of the boilers had been set to a low temp which meant the water in 2-3 of the bathrooms was warm rather than hot - all the others were fine.

The whole heating and water system was upgraded 2 years ago to hotel standard so it was a real shame we only heard about it from the review as it was very simple to fix and we have a plumber and handyman who are always willing to come out if called.
