Close to town

Good walking access to all of central amenities. Easy access via car, parking granted after check out so we could do more sightseeing. Very helpful

Desperately needs a refurb!!!

Posted 15-May-2017 on Hotels
pretty run down and generally poor facilities even at the low price room shabby with old decor and fittings upon return that night the whole of the 2nd floor reeked of cigarette smoke and clearly one of the occupants had been standing on the landing smoking (i disturbed him and he quickly scuttled off into his own room but couldnt take the plume of smoke with him!!) i couldnt find a wifi code in the room so didnt pursue trying to get a connection

Friendly hotel but tired.

Posted 13-May-2017
Pros: Friendly owners. En suite facilities. Shutter to reduce noise and light
Cons: Really just need updating and renovating as very tired.
Location: Close to city centre for food etc. Railway station on the doorstep. IMAX cinema.
Nice friendly family owners very helpful. Big free private car park. Room a little compact but comfortable with en suite toilet and shower. Room had hand basin, tv, kettle and microwave. Although the room had shutter on inside of Windows to reduce light and noise, being close to station and busy road sadly there was quite a bit of noise. Separate TV room with Sky. Good breakfast but as Muslim the sausages were beef (really nice) but I did miss the bacon! Although turkey rashers Ok. Overall, nice people and comfortable but does need updating. Very good value for money. Thank you for your hospitality.

Overnight stay

Adequate overnight stay. Nice breakfast. Friendly staff, Couldn't operate the television - but not that important as the reason was just to have somewhere to stay for the night.

Affordable and very friendly staff

Posted 01-May-2017 on Hotels
We were in Ipswich for a wedding and wanted an affordable place to stay one night only, so we didn't spend much time in the hotel. Even though it's next to the train station and line, it was very quiet and relaxing. There's a park behind the hotel too, but we didn't have the chance to visit it. We were allowed to check in early and were upgraded to an en-suite room. Both of these were greatly appreciated, and the reception/welcome was very friendly. The bed was comfortable and there were towels and soap - no shampoo though. The room was spacious and everything worked as expected. The only negative comment about the room was the strong smell of cigarette in it. We didn't check whether this was a no-smoking hotel though, so maybe our fault. There was also a loud noise sometimes after flushing, but it stopped soon. One point that we felt could be easily improved was breakfast: we were served tin plum tomatoes and my girlfriend's beans didn't seem to have been cooked at all. The coffee was weak, but not too bad. The rest was fine. This is a positive review! Even though there were things to be improved the staff was really friendly and we didn't have any major issues. The location is excellent if you want to be close to the station (early train maybe), and our stay was more pleasant than we had anticipated.

The room was clean and tidy, but the furnitures need to be updated
