I have stayed at the Pentahotel on business on a number of occasions with colleagues as the location is great for us and the price is reasonable for the size and comfort of the rooms. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and the breakfast (although expensive) is superb. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. However, the...

Went on business for the first time to Ipswich. I booked this hotel based on reviews and I was positively surprised. 5 min from train station and 10 min from Downtown, very fun casual place to be. Bar and reception is the same thing which is confusing at first but fun anyway. Superb breakfast and great speakers. Watched football there...

This hotel is just across the road from Ipswich station and a short walk from the football stadium. The nearest bars and restaurants are around a twenty minute walk away. I didn't eat or drink at the hotel because I found it a bit too expensive. I used the takeaway kebab/pizza/burger place just across the road. Great food. I loved...

Just returned from a weekend away staying at Pentahotel. Overall we had a lovely stay and would stay here again if we needed to be in Ipswich. The bar area and restaurant is cool, relaxing and unique with pool table and x box machines. In the evening the dim lighting and candles change the atmosphere and It's a great place...

Stayed for 2 nights to attend an Ipswich football match, location is excellent for the ground - walking distance. Checking in was fine, staff were friendly, room was really good. First night we had food downstairs was absolutely fantastic, couldn't find a fault with the food or atmosphere. Our room was facing the car park to where a white van...

Stayed 2 nights, like the style of this place, they have a pool table and a PS4! Good breakfast, good room furnishings, comfortable bed. Watch out for the wifi though. Yes it is free if you are happy with 128kb, which is about the same as GPRS on your phone. The premium wifi however is £9.99 for 24 hours. And...

This hotel has a very cool relaxed vibe to it. The checkin was via the bar, but was easy and efficient. The room itself maintained the off beat funky chic feel with comfy retro patterned chairs on wheels and a scaffolding pole functioning as the wardrobe. All was very clean. The bed was stiff but comfortable enough for us. Despite...
