There were 12 of us all golfers staying for 4 nights. We were expecting the usual city break travel lodge type accommodation. To our surprise it was the opposite. Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms were quite spacious and well appointed. If anything the the lack of enough clothes hangers was an issue. 6 hangers... More

Lovely hotel friendly staff and excellent service, we stayed for 2 nights our room was beautifully clean. Beds were hard but asked the next day for a topper which they didn't have but the cleaner did put an additional duvet on the bed to make it softer. Lovely shower would definitely stay again if in the area .

I stayed at the hotel for one night and it was a fairly standard room. I was here on a Friday night and so there was a lot of noise both outside and inside with other guests returning to their rooms. I was not impressed with having to pay £7 for parking. This was not clear on my booking and... More

Stayed here after a football match in Colchester paying £38 for the night, having booked well in advance. Exceptional value. Reception pleasant. £10 additional charge for cooked breakfast (free for kids) was good value. Room was a decent size with all the usual hotel basics including toiletries and kettle. Minibar included an over-priced water. Car park was £7. Nice little... More

Pleasantly surprised at this hotels standard.Stayed for 3 nights, could not fault our room. The hotel staff were very obliging,our room maid was excellent. The car parking was limited and at £7 a night a bit expensive, we new about this in advance so had factored it in to the cost of our stay. Conveniently located near to the main... More

We stayed at the Novotel from the 20/8/14 until the 24/8/14, and apart from the parking charge I can honestly say the hotel its staff and all the facilities available were second to none! The people at reception were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them, the room on the second floor was light and airy, well... More

I recently stayed two nights at Novotel Ipswich. This was a business-related trip, but I had plenty of time to explore the area during the evenings. The hotel is well located near to the city centre, and adjacent to Cardinal Park leisure centre, with its wide range of restaurants. If you don't want to eat in the hotel, there's plenty... More

We had read that the Car Parking cost £ 7 a night so at least we were prepared but it was a shame when everything else was good value. The Pre-Paid Breakfast for £ 10 was excellent value and really nice. Lots of nice cereals, fruit, juice and proper Coffee. The hot breakfast, self service but nicely laid out. The... More
