Chose this place as it is easy to get to and ha always look nice in the bar area. It is laid out well with plenty of comfy seats and areas sectioned off. Was clean and tidy, So that's the good stuff! Now the not so good. Service was really slow, we had a tea and a coffee but the...

Outside the main town so no restaurants near. When we arrived the restaurant was closed due to large parties- 3 coaches. Bedroom was clean but bed on the small side. Beds need upgrading. Good gym and better than many with useful pool. Breakfast was surprisingly peaceful given the large parties in the hotel

Just had an afternoon/overnight stop over whilst travelling across country. After a long drive it was great to relax in the welcoming lounge. Our room served its purpose, very comfortable bed. Yes the bathroom is small but I don't think that matters just as long as everything works well and is clean and that is how it was. Had a...

When music is blaring from the room nextdoor at 1am I don't expect to have to get out of bed, get dressed and search the hotel for the night staff to get the issue resolved, which is exactly what happened last night. In most other hotels, staff tend to pick up the phone when guests call!!!!

This is a well located hotel on the outskirts of Ipswich, where we stayed for two nights. A car is essential. We arrived late at night and found the entrance difficult to find as the signs by the turn weren't lit, although we could see the hotel itself quite clearly. But the parking is free, no hidden extras. Despite the...

I stay here very regularly due to work, it's generally very good although a lot depends on whose manning reception. I'm a IHG member but very rarely get the benefits of that at this hotel. I have just checked in after a night shift, I've been put near the main stairs which means it won't be quiet during the day....

Stayed here for 1 night as we attended a silver anniversary there. The staff are all very polite and couldn't do enough for you. The bar, although small is sufficently stocked and reasonably priced. The room was fine with plenty of space and nicely decorated. The bathroom however was tiny - badly designed in my opinion. Breakfast was fine with...

We used this hotel as it was convenient for us as we were meeting up nearby for a family get together. It is a typical holiday inn, so cheap and cheerful. Staff were friendly and we had lunch when we arrived. We did have to wait quite a long time for a couple of beers as the pump had gone...

As I had two days business around Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk this hotel was very central to Ipswich and close to the roads I needed to access North and South.
