Stayed at this hotel thinking that it was part of the Ramada Encore group only to discover it had been sold. We were attending the Suffolk Show. It was not clearly stated that the car parking is near enough non existent. I am disabled so need to park close. Luckily it was sorted as l parked in a member of... More

They are undergoing a remodelling. Based on the inconvenience and this, they should offer a discounted rate. I would pay the rate I paid I suppose if the hotel was fully functional. Even if it was, I can't see how the parking area they have could accommodate a full hotel. When we arrived, the small parking area was blocked by... More

Where to start, at the beginning I think. Are you sitting comfortably, you'll be here a while. My husband and I were visiting relatives in Ipswich for Aug BH holiday weekend, we usually stay in Premier Inns but everywhere was fully booked. The Ramada Encore had rooms available and looked ok, so we made the booking on-line a week before... More

After reading some not so good reviews, I was anxious about coming here BUT I will be staying here again! Staff couldn't do enough for us.

Even though the hotel is changing to a Penta Hotel we found our stay as relaxing as ever , very friendly staff (nearly all new since our last stay), nothing was to much trouble for them . The breakfast was as tasty as always. The rooms we're kept clean & tidy. The new bar/reception was very inviting offering a wide... More

We stayed here for two nights in July. As we had trouble booking online we decided to book over the 'phone which was challenging to say the least. We were connected to an offshore calling centre who said our booking had been made but after a few days of not having received the confirmation we called the hotel direct and... More

This is a very comfortable hotel, sort of dropped in amongst a housing estate, has pleasant verandah with river view, breakfast excellent, staff patient and attentive. The big downside is parking, I arrived early evening having had a long drive. It was pouring with rain and all I wanted was a shower and a cuppa! What I got was no... More
