This hotel is perfectly placed a short stroll across a pedestrian bridge to Ipswich town centre, approx 10 mins. The parking is limited to a few spaces but if you drive over a bridge there is a large public long stay carpark which is just as convenient, less than 5 mins walk via the pedestrian bridge. The hotel is modern... More

My partner and I stayed for 1 night over the bank holiday. We paid £125 for a room only, which we thought was pretty pricey but we thought the pictures looked nice so we may as well go for it. The room was clean...thats really the only positive thing to say about it.the paint on the bathroom door was peeling,... More

We stayed for two nights over bank holiday. The downstairs area of the hotel is amazing. Lovely decor, very quirky and unique. Such a shame this didn't continue through to the rooms. Very basic apart from the massive TV on the wall! The bed was so uncomfortable, not helped by the wafer thin pillows which we had to fold in... More

We recently stayed on a Thursday night to break our journey on holiday. We were fortunate to get the last space in the very small hotel car park when we arrived at about 5 p.m. Check-in takes place at the hotel bar and was quick and efficient. We had two rooms, one overlooking the car park and the other overlooking... More

I only booked here because it was the only hotel with rooms left in Ipswich and I can see why it is the last to fill up. Reception is at the bar and I believe this sets the tone for the hotel. The bar area is in a modern quirky style more suited to a younger clientele with pool table,... More

Could not get checked in as card holder had not arrived yet. Ahmed looked after us for the duration of the wait attentively and professionally. A credit to Pentahotel. Very relaxed atmosphere, very clean and tidy. Fabulous fish n chips. Brilliant wet room and super sized TV in the room. 116 and 117

Nice hotel, a little different to the norm. We stayed 1 night for a wedding in the area. I left booking till late and that turned out to be quite expensive at £169 for 2 of us, Including breakfast. I was a little surprised by the Hotel reception being in the main bar???. Rooms are very basic, not particularly comfortable,... More

New, boutique bar, free pool, great bar food, nice staff. Big TV in the room, I mean the biggest I have ever seen in a hotel, some free on demand films. The bedrooms are basic, minimalist I am sure they would say, but it's really the best value hotel I've stayed in for some time. Will be back when next... More

Last minute booking - therefore not a very cheap stay £119 for a twin room (no breakfast). We arrived at about 20.30 to find the hotel car park was full and were advised to use a local car park across the river (free evening parking) there were a couple of groups of lads in cars - and we were slightly...
