Excellent stay
Little gem of a place, very good value. Room was basic but clean, and with a balcony and a view what more do you need? Very warm welcome. Breakfast not included but you can get it in the bar after 10.

fantastic sea views - can sit on the balcony and watch the world go by (boats in and out of Marina, the cargo docks at Felixstowe, the ferries from Harwich) Nice walks along the riverside. Property is really clean, comfortable with big windows and plenty of light. Owner really friendly and helpful
