Fantastic stay in a good hotel made even better by the amazing friendly staff - Carla, Donna, Janet, Anna & Dawn to mention only a few. Meals served to an excellent standard with an array of choice. Breakfast particularly provided everything you could have wished for. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Bathrooms wonderfully modern with plenty of lighting. Some areas...

Stopped here whilst on business, right next to the A14 with a ten minute drive to Felixstowe or Ipswich, bar was good and a nice breakfast. Small gym but you get access to a David Lloyd gym next door, good value

From the moment I arrived, the lady at reception (I think her name was Tara) was very friendly and helpful. She made me and my partner feel at home. The room was a little dated, but the bed was comfy and the bathroom modern, both were immaculate. My partner felt unwell in the morning and the receptionist I spoke to,...

We needed a hotel for a couple of nights as we were going to a spa locally. Arriving at the hotel it looks a bit tired and in need of a lick of paint and new nets. Inside is a different story, true there were areas that needed some attention... But the important things were nailed. Customer service is really...

The staff are very friendly but the hotel is so tired. The rooms and communal areas are in desperate need of refurbishment. Otherwise it is a standard HI hotel. Use of the adjacent David Lloyd leisure centre is available for guests.
