Ideally located in Ipswich.

The BEST WESTERN Gatehouse Hotel is a charming and secluded country house retreat on the outskirts of Ipswich. A real hidden gem, built in the Regency style, the hotel offers peace and tranquillity in over three acres of beautiful, mature gardens.

A small yet perfectly formed hotel, our home away from home is perfectly placed to offer a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The surrounding conservation area certainly adds to the air of relaxation!

The small, friendly nature of the hotel, with its extensive gardens, also offers the perfect venue for those guests wanting to stage intimate weddings or private celebrations!
