Good for the price

Posted 31-Oct-2014
Definitely not a 5 star hotel (but you are not paying 5 star price). Pros: The staff was nice, the breakfast fantastic, there is a real effort to keep everything clean, not far from waterfront or town center and close to train station Cons: The street is loud because it is close to train station. You will hear the announcements for every train. The mattress was horrible. I could feel every spring. The price/location can also attract some louder groups, esp on the weekend.

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

Table clothes in the kitchen need to be washed or changed as they were very greasy and dirty.

Got what we paid for

Posted 02-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
The staff were friendly, breakfast was good. The beds were very uncomfortable. Spiders everywhere, which doesn't bother me but may bother some. Otherwise clean. But it is basically a budget place.

Einfaches Hotel. Sauber und ordentlich. Etwas laut durch den nahen Bahnhof.
