My experience was ok, considering the price of the hotel, if you don't want to or can't afford luxury this is the place to stay. The location is not good if like me you don't like noise from the trains and the traffic. Even though there's not much one can expect from less than £50 a night I still strongly recommend better mattresses otherwise in my opinion everything is minimal but I'm grateful to have had a place to stay.

Cheap accommodation.

Pity that breakfast is so late. 8.30 am is too late for many people including us. Railway line opposite but not too noisy.

Convenient, no-frills base

Posted 04-Sep-2016
Pros: The staff are friendly, the rooms - though small - are comfortable and it serves my purposes (an occasional overnight stay on business) perfectly.
Cons: The place feels tired and some equipment, such as the shower and shutters need repair.
Location: Close to the station, within walking distance of the 'historic' waterfront area and town centre, both of which have good eating places.
Convenient for me when I'm in Ipswich - both near the station and where I do business.

Excellent value for money

Posted 26-Aug-2016
Pros: The friendly staff and room presentation
Cons: TVs not great and some shower gel / shower sachets in bathroom wouldn't go amiss if being slightly picky.
I must admit to having low expectations at the price but needed somewhere to stay on business at short notice. Pleasantly surprised, room was clean, well presented. Bed was comfortable and en suite more than acceptable. Staff from manager to breakfast waitress also friendly and helpful. Only slight downside is it is very close to train station so there is some disturbance but the windows are good enough to reduce this when closed. Would recommend to anyone travelling for a short stay and will definitely use again myself.

Toplocatie vlakbij Centrum Ipswich en treinstation

Posted 08-Aug-2016
Pros: Parkeergarage naast en achter het hotel. Ontbijt was zeer goed: Full English Breakfast!
Cons: nvt
Location: Christchurch Park, Christchurch Mansion (Fonnereau House) zijn echt de moeite waard. Nieuwe stadion met Sir Alf Ramsey stand en Cobbold stand.
Eenvoudig hotel, ideaal als je wat van de stad en het Christchurch Park en Mansion wil zien. Voor voetballiefhebbers: het nieuwe stadion van Ipswich Town ligt op loopafstand van het hotel. Christchurch Mansion gratis toegankelijk, geweldige tentoonstelling van John Constable.

The B&B is near the centre and quite clean. The staff is very kind and helpful. Recommended especially for short-medium term periods.

Close to town and station

It is a B+B with style; cheaper if you share bathroom. Nice park just behind.

Ideal for the station and public park

Posted 07-Jun-2016
Pros: Friendly staff. Location
Cons: The rooms require updating. Obviously being an old building some of the rooms (bedroom/dining room) suffered from damp/mould.
Location: Less than 5 minutes walk from the station. Less than 1 minutes walk from Gippeswyk Park. 10 minutes walk to the town centre
Whilst the staff were friendly and breakfast was ok, the room was tired. Redecoration was obviously in progress, at least in the hall way. The shared toilet/shower was not as clean as it could have been. Overpriced for the quality, but handy for the station. Have since found alternative and far superior accommodation if I should ever return to Ipswich.

Bon rapport qualité prix / Good value for money

Posted 14-May-2016
Pros: Super petit-déjeuner avec plein de choix / Amazing breakfast with plenty of choice Wi-Fi gratuit / Free Wi-F
Cons: La lampe de chevet ne fonctionnait pas / The bed light did'nt work
Location: Bien situé, à 5 minutes de la gare et 15 minutes du centre ville / Excellent location, 5 mn from the train station, 15 minutes from center town
Séjour agréable / pleasant stay Personnel agréable et discret / Friendly staff but non-intrusive Proche de la gare, il y a donc un peu de bruit, à déconseiller à ceux qui ont le sommeil léger / Close to the train station and there is some noise, so if you're a light sleeper, it may not be for you. Hôtel simple, chambres propre / Basic hotel, clean room Chambre donnant sur le parc, plus calme que les chambres donnant sur rue / Room with view on a public park, quieter than the rooms on the opposite side with view on a noisy street
