Very nice place to stay in Ipswich. The staff is really helpful and you get nice place to chill out at the bar, at the pool table, at the playstation or maybe on the terrace near the river. Would come back!

Stayed mid week, greeted by friendly attentive staff. Room was spacious, clean and well equipped. Dinner was lovely, the only downside was slow service in the restaurant. The cocktails were great. The breakfast was the best I have had at a hotel, lots of variety. Will definitely be returning soon.

I stayed here recently for a birthday surprise. And it really was. I wasn't expecting such a stunning hotel. The decor downstairs has had no expense spared and they really have thought of everything, there's even cosy blankets for when you sit outside. As well as a pool table, I noticed a couple playing on the PS4, so it's a... More
