I stayed here for 3 nights last week on business. The hotel itself was clean and modern, and conveniently located to the centre of town. Check in was fine and the receptionist very helpful. However, There were several issues. Firstly I was given a disabled access room. I didn't find this very comfortable (raised toilet seat, shower only), but not... More

Located just a walk from the city center, provides a taxi free access. The rooms are spacious and well laid out, the decor was modern and very practical, I had a basic room with no air con (just a heater) and it got a little bit hot during the night, but nothing major. I would highly recommend.

My trip was one of discovering a town I didn't know and looking up some old family connections from the 19thC. My default hotel group in the UK and mainland Europe is Novotel and this was a reasonable rate, including what I know to be a hearty but healthy breakfast and a 'shopping goody bag' containing things for tired feet,...

We chose to stay at the Novotel in Ipswich as we wanted to take our puppy and this was one of the few Ipswich hotels that welcomes dogs. We were very impressed and would definitely stay again. We had upgraded to the superior room where we had a very comfortable queen sized bed and the girls had an usually comfortable... More

We stayed here on Sunday 16th March for a concert at The Regent. There was plenty of space in the car park when we arrived. ( £7) The reception staff were very friendly and asked for our room preference ( road side/ car park side, near or away from the lift) and we were given room 217 which was superb.... More

Superbly clean hotel. Immaculate room with huge bed, fully functioning tv (which is rare in a lot of hotels now) and ample tea/coffee. Food and drink is quite expensive here so if you fancy a good dinner out, walk to one of the many bars or bistros in the town. Breakfast is fantastic and again not cheap but there are... More

Stayed at this hotel while on a business trip in Ipswich. Wasnt expecting anything wow, however, when I walked into the foyer/reception area I was pleasantly surprised with the decor. Clean, refreshing and welcoming....so I was expecting my room to meet the same standards. The room was dated, horrible spring bed that has probably been there since the hotel opened... More
