    About

    The Best Western Gatehouse Hotel is regency in style and relaxing in nature. Literally! Set on the edge of Ipswich in a conservation area in 3 acres of garden on Ipswich's outskirts, our accommodation offers seclusion in Suffolk, yet affords guests the convenience of having easy access to the town's waterfront, museums and even a ski slope all less than 5 miles away! It really is a hidden gem that has a unique and discreet charm thanks to a traditional country house atmosphere that many other hotels aspire to but few can match. Most important of all, our peaceful bedrooms offer modern facilities to ensure constant comfort!
