This is a clean and tidy hotel that is very convenient for the town centre or visiting businesses around Ipswich. The staff are very helpful, the room I had was as clean and tidy as anyone would expect.

Stayed for 2 nights with my husband and 2 year old to meet friends. When we arrived at 10pm, a very helpful member of staff gave my son 2 little toys to make him feel welcome. Then we asked for a sandwich at 10.30pm (as our son decided he was suddenly hungry) and were brought one quickly and given milk!... More

I had a large room with a comfortable bed. The room had one standard sized window but the curtain spanned the whole wall which was a bit bizarre. The breakfast and staff were good also. Would stay again.

I held an American HS Reunion over 4 days at the Novotel in Ipswich. The Staff went out of their way to make this 40th reunion from Lakenheath High School one of the best event ever to be held.

Visited as working in the City centre, hotel within a 10 minute walk of the train station. Friendly and helpful reception staff, good sized room with a sofa, desk, big comfy bed and separate shower/toilet rooms. Breakfast buffet was well stocked and tasty, pleasure to stay here will book again next time I visit Ipswich.
