Excellent business hotel
One of the best business hotels I have stayed in Ipswich. The staff are friendly, prices competitive, rooms well equipped and food good. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Slowest Food Service in Ipswich
Hotel was well located and of a decent standard. This was let down badly by the dinner service. The team were pleasant enough however... On arrival about 5:40pm, I asked when dinner was served and was advised 7pm - 9pm. I booked a table for 7pm as I was very hungry. I arrived in the dining room and was seated at 6:55pm and given the menu's to select from. My food did not arrive at my table until 8:18pm... during which time I was not acknowledged or apologised to until the food finally arrived. There was no gesture of goodwill, no drink on the house at all... Very poor - The waitress simply said, sorry for the wait, we've been extremely busy.... I was second into the dining room?? Really let down the hotel - so much so that I didn't dare go for breakfast as I couldn't bear the thought of a delayed start to my day. Shame as the hotel had good potential.

Clean hotel but VERY dated!
Had a 1 night stay here with my son as a last minute stop over on a weekend outing and used a free night. Although generally clean the hotel is VERY dated and needs some serious investment. My room which was very near reception was very small for a double but was adequate for 1 night, my biggest complaint would be that my curtains didn’t close properly so the room had constant light from streets lights or day light. Although it claims 24 hour reception it is only manned till 11pm after then there is a porter contactable via phone which makes the building seem very isolated! Would stay here again but only if it was cheap and not for more than 1 night
