Modern hotel in the centre of Ipswich with good sized rooms, friendly staff and a hearty buffet breakfast. Built to the standard Novotel pattern, the hotel represents good value for money. Whilst not an issue whilst we were there the car park (chargeable) is relatively small so you could end up parking elsewhere, possibly some distance from the hotel itself.

Reception staff were friendly and welcoming. Buffet breakfast was excellent. Room was comfortable with a very nice walk in shower. TV had plenty of channels to choose from + there was free Wi Fi The only negatives were a separate loo to the bathroom and doors that slammed. Is there any way they can adjusted to close more gently ?

Have paid £300 in the past for 1 night at a different chain of hotels and this was far better. Paid only £59. Never used this chain before but have... More

I have now stayed here on 2 separate occasions, check in has always been swift. The rooms are clean, comfortable and functional. The hotel is reasonably central and for business is ideal. I do like the cubicles within the dining area that allow you to watch TV when dining on your own

Stayed for 4 nights on business and was impressed. Comfortable room with excellent bathroom. WC separate which was good. Shower powerful and the bath not too small! Breakfast was plentiful and dinner didn't take too long to arrive. Parking was a bit tight and each night I was there it was full. I suspect they would benefit from a bigger... More

After a long journey I was made welcome by staff on arrival and quickly checked in. The room was spacious with double bed and sofa. I was a little concerned that I looked out onto a busy roundabout, but surprisingly you couldn't really hear it and I had a great nights sleep! I ate dinner in the hotel restaurant which... More

It was a bit noisy as our room was facing the roundabout, so we shut the window and used the air con instead. Both shower heads were leaking (In shower and bath., I don't understand why the toilet is separate from the bathroom. The doors slammed so loud that they made us jump a couple of times and woke us...

Stayed in this hotel for a night and found it to be good value. Had a spacious room with a good queen size bed. Good location near the centre and the harbour, cinema and restaurants. Would definitely recommend it.
