Upon arriving at 10:30pm on a Saturday I was surprised to walk straight into a bar and not a reception, when I spoke to the server I was told that this was the check-in desk also! I personally felt quite uncomfortable checking in whilst people were sat around drinking pints. After getting in the room I noticed we were facing... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we turned up at this hotel and would definitely use again. The staff were extremely friendly, although not ready for hotel guests to check in, but this was compensated with a free drink. It was a very relaxed feeling. Rooms were lovely and so pleased to see that they left additional lotions for 2nd night... More

This is the best budget hotel ive stayed in. This place has a cool hip vibe to it. Staff are friendly. Pool table, books and gaming console is a great touch. Breakfast is amazing, even serves prosecco, happy days. Theres a patio area with seating and tables that plays background music. The bedrooms are standard budget rooms, but have free... More

Stayed here during the week for 1 night while I was in Ipswich for business. 1. Got a parking spot in the tiny car park 2. Reception/bar area get a little cramped when busy. 3. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. 4. Food is good, but way overpriced as hotels usually are. 5. My Guinness was warm from the fridge.... More

Great staff, clean and tidy but a fair walk from the town centre and with little on site car parking. Overall very good. What is different with Pentahotels are that they combine reception and the bar, very sensible. Great buffet breakfast with plenty of choice.

Dear Mark, thanks for your Feedback and that you have enjoyed your stay with us. If our limited car park is full and you have to use the council car park across the bridge we offer of course our big penta umbrellas! ;-) Hopefully we will see you again. With best regards Marco More

The breakfast buffet offers a great deal of choice and is truly amazing!! The staff are extremely helpful and polite. The rooms are cosy and the decor is simple. The TV in the room offers a number of films to view for free of charge. Another plus is the free wifi !!

This hotel feels like two opposite ends of the scale. The public areas are clean, modern, quirky, comfortable, very boutique-like; but the bedrooms make you feel like you're in a Travelodge, albeit a clean, modern one. The beds really are doubles, there's no bath and you may as well sit on the floor or the bed because the sofa's so... More

Hotel is modern and decorated similarly throughout with a nice bar area. Rooms are fairly Nordic in their minimalistic style, would have been nice to have not had someone use the toilet and not flush before I checked into the room but hey-ho! Parking is painful, only a handful of spaces and when its full, the hotel just disabled the... More
