Great hotel, stayed 2 nights over the weekend. Terrific value. Room included coffee making facilities, no breakfast included in price. Comfy bed, nice staff and easily accessible by public transport (great as was visiting by train) Would recommend and stay again if in the area.

Dear Becks92, wonderful Feedback, thanks a lot for that. Yes Train station is just a 5 min walk and in 15 min you are at Ipswich marina. So the penta is great to stay for a weekend out! Hope we will see you again! best regards Marco More

The lobby / bar area was nice. Hotel makes an effort to make customer feel at home (ps4 in the corner etc...). Standard room / bed was basic but clean. Very large LG TV, very uncomfortable sofa, smallish windows. Unfortunately drew the short straw and was places above the kitchen. Good enough for business trips.

It was disappointing to read that we only provided an average experience for you – this is not what we aim for. If you would be willing to return back to us, we would love to hear from you and...

The bar doubles as the hotel reception and the public areas are Set out around a dimly lit snooker table. There is a limited menu of... More

First look from the outside of this well placed close to the city hotel is bland. Interior lounge check in bar area is very modern and feels like a London Soho jazz joint, not a bad thing, but a little bit pretentious in my opinion. Check in was fairly straight forward once you worked out it's the same area as... More
