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

The hotel and breakfast were both very pleasant. Can't say the same for the parking though. We were informed when we arrived it would be £7 to park the night!! The staff also said to use the car park over the road if their car park was full. By the time we got back in the evening the hotel parking... More

I’m sorry we failed to live up to your expectations. The team and I at Novotel Ipswich Centre appreciate your feedback, though, our parking is secure, CCTV monitored, convenient however limited space as same as the other hotels in Ipswich Town Centre. I hope we can look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, Serhan Ilker... More

The Novotel Ipswich is conveniently located not too far from the city centre. There is free overnight parking two blocks away at Cromwell Square but make sure you have paid for parking or removed your car before 8am, otherwise you might end up with a parking ticket. The room I had was nice and spacious and had a second door... More

Clean and large room. Polite and pleasant staff. Bar area very comfortable and inviting. Don't forget about the £7 parking fee. Good that there's now free basic WiFi. Booked a while before and got a good deal .
