We spent two night in Ipswich on a family trip. The room was nice, the bed was comfortable, and suprisingly the sofabed too. Staff was very nice and helpful with a special care for the kids. We met the GM, very nice person who gave us very good information about the region and things to do. Thanks to his advice... More

Visited the hotel for one night, didn't eat or drink there. The room was lovely and spacious, bathroom was very nice. Slept well no disturbing noise. Has a car but limited spaces. Within a 5 minute walk to the city centre. I would stay here again.

Just to stress the food didn't actually make us ill, it was just pretty awful! We stayed at the Novotel, Ipswich for a weekend in December 2014, location wise it was a bit of a walk from the station, but nothing too horrific and once daylight appeared we discovered we were actually quite near all the shops and plenty of...

Stayed here New Years Eve, everything as it should be for a perfect stay. Special mention about the young man on reception, we had an issue with the seal on our window, basically there wasn't one and noise was coming through. Straight away he came up to our room and said that subject to availability he would move us and... More

The hotel was very comfortable and a short walk from centre. We loved the fact we could bring our dogs. Thought food was a bit expensive but there were many alternatives around, Comfortable experience

I stayed with my wife for a post Christmas break and we had a comfortable time. The hotel is situated on a busy roundabout in the middle of Ipswich, nearby is an entertainment complex comprising of a cinema and a number of chain restaurants and near the Quay, which was a bit of a let down. We stayed in a... More

Stayed here so we could visit family in Ipswich over the Christmas break Dec 2014. Staff very helpful, courteous and friendly. Hotel very clean and spacious. Didn't appear to be very busy when we arrived on the Saturday early evening. The hotel is quite big and situated on a roundabout - our room overlooked this roundabout from the top floor... More

I was lucky to be given a room at the Novotel after a works party and it was perfect. Spacious and clean room, very quiet and courteous staff that were incredibly helpful also considering that the bar was still full at 3.30 am. Also a top breakfast to blow the cobwebs away. A very good stay indeed.

When you book Novotel you know what to expect and they can only lose you by messing up. The staff at this one did not mess up in fact they were great and did everything possible to be helpful. The hotel is near the Waterfront which made it perfect for our Christmas party. The rooms were clean and formulaic as... More
