Comfortable stay

Posted 23-Oct-2014
This is a conveniently-sited hotel, just a few minutes' walk from Ipswich railway station. During my stay, I found the staff helpful and friendly. My room was comfortable and warm (on a rainy, cold night) with a welcome en-suite hot shower. Breakfast was generous and tasty.

Decent cheap and cheerful hotel

Posted 20-Oct-2014
Cheap, decent value for money. Breakfast only had full cream milk (no semi-skimmed) and meat that has halal ie veggie sausages and turkey bacon; I feel that the hotel should advertise that this is the case rather than effectively forcing people to eat halal meat if they want a cooked breakfast.

non smoking??

Posted 16-Oct-2014
Pros: breakfast
Cons: creaking beds, grubby shower room, cigarette smells, faulty electrics, unfriendly staff
Location: right in the heart of town, near most things, especially the train station as its just across the road
We arrived late in the evening (approx. midnight) and I was very relieved that the staff had left a key for us where they instructed we would find it. We started out with a good feeling that soon left us, as we went to find our room. We were positioned at the top of the entire hotel, humping luggage up 2 flights of stairs, trying to be quite as others were sleeping. we entered the room to an overwhelming smell of cigarettes. the lights over the bed didn't work, the TV was ancient (but did work) one of the plug sockets didn't work, I was told on the phone it was en-suite, but we had to traipse half dressed to the toilet in the night (it wasn't en-suite) and as we aren't a couple, the 'twin' room turned out to be 2 twin beds pushed together like a double bed with one sheet???? this could have been very uncomfortable for us and with it being so late, we had no-one to speak to about the issues. the bed squeaked so every time we moved it woke us up, the only saving grace was the breakfast!! my PJ's stank of cigarettes and I found the whole experience a disappointing one. NO, I wouldn't stay again, and I wouldn't recommend it either, I would rather pay a bit more for the travel lodge, at least you know what you get and it doesn't stench of cigarette smoke!! £50 NOT well spent.

Nice Hotel, close to train station

Posted 03-Oct-2014
Location: The train station was close by but was quiet enough not to disturb a good night sleep
Town centre and harbour are within walking distance

Decent hotel, sketchy neighborhood

Posted 20-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
The location was convenient to the rail station and close to the city center. However, it was too dark and risky of a walk for me to make the 10 minutes back after sundown. The people here were lovely and the place was clean, but I don't recommend a visit to Ipswich in the first place.

Clean friendly and reasonable price

Posted 12-Jul-2014
Pros: Location, clean, parking and price.
Cons: Slight modernisation of rooms and furniture. Not overstruck on shared toilet shower facility!
Location: Close to station and City Centre
Easy to book with good communications. Good location with parking facility. Basis room but comfortable and ideal for a one night stop for our road trip through East Anglia. It is close to the train station but not noisy. Nice full English breakfast and attentive friendly waitress. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Cheap place to stay in Ipswich

Posted 08-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
Service was ok (although they had forgotten that they had agreed to let me check in early), room was comfortable and breakfast excellent. However bathrooms weren't that nice and shower was cold. All in all, a conveniently located cheap place to stay, but nothing more.

Excellent breakfast , friendly sstaff.

Posted 25-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
Unfortunately the mattress on the bed needed replacing, however the room was clean if a little dated. the kettle needed replacing as it only worked if you pressed it into the base. The good news was that the staff were friendly and the breakfast was excellent.

Good for short stay

The staff is very friendly. Room allotted in the second floor was quite good. It also overlooked a nice park. Overall a good experience.
