Good for a short break

Posted 18-Oct-2016
Location: Very good base on the outskirts of Ipswich for walks along Orwell estuary or Suffolk coast
Somewhat dated hotel but staff on reception, in the dining room and bar were all very welcoming and looked after our needs well. Room spacious with usual facilities and shower room clean and modern. Free wifi worked well throughout our stay. Bed had soft mattress and our preference would be for a firm one but obviously that is personal taste. Good to have free access to swimming pool from early morning to late in evening.

Nice hotel on the outskirts of Ipswich

Posted 18-Aug-2016
A nice pleasant stay in the Ipswich holiday inn nothing is to much trouble for the staff there, nice breakfast with a plentiful selection of cooked and cold food. Only drawback was the price of evening meals which are outrageously priced in my opinion we dined out each of our 4 nights there

Busy hotel mainly of good standard and facilities

Posted 27-Jul-2016
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff. I left something behind this time and it was found and (after e-mailing the Hotel Manager) will be posted back to me.
Cons: Air-conditioning in the room appears to be "fixed" (no adjustment is possible, or so it seems) although a fan had been placed in the room.
Location: Sorry, can't evaluate this properly as on there on business, but I know that Ipswich is worth a visit and the town centre is within very few miles.
I have used the Holiday Inn, Ipswich quite a lot over the past 2-3 years on business trips. There is a large (free) car park for all visitors including disabled bays really close to the reception entrance. The staff are always helpful and friendly and ensure that you have all the information about the hotel and facilities you might need. A lovely pool complements the fitness centre which is available to guests. Breakfast (watch your booking to ensure it's included in the cost) is very good, full cooked buffet and good selection of cold foods, cereals, juices and bread products. Early starts in the morning are possible as Breakfast is served from 06:30. Wifi is available in lounge and in all rooms (free if you are a member of the priority club) and is reasonable speed.

Lovely hotel.

We had a lovely stay the hotel is very nice. We enjoyed using the gym,pool,sauna and steam room followed by a delicious complementary breakfast. Would recommend this hotel. Only downside was that the jacuzzi wasn't working which is one of the reasons why we chose the hotel so that was disappointing.

Great staff, average hotel

Posted 11-Jul-2016
The staff at this hotel were fantastic! The room was ok, but the bathroom was extremely small and to close the door required squeezing in between the sink and toilet! Our room was not serviced which was quite annoying as we came back from a day out to an unmade bed, no clean towels or tea/coffee. The breakfast was great, dinner not so good.
