My brother and my New Sislaw had their reception here. As Ive always lived in Ipswich and seen this hotel change hands many times, I was a little dubious on what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. The reception when we arrived was a bit confusing as the lady at the reception was not very informed and only after several... More

This hotel looks like a 1960s primary school turned into a hotel. It good definitely do with a paint job. Room was unnaturally hot and I had difficultly getting to sleep despite adjusting temperature. Food in the bar was overpriced and poor (£12 ish) when I would have been satisfied with this quality if I had only paid £7ish. Staff... More

Pros = Very nice and friendly staff who do the best job they can. Cons = 256k internet allocated for free wifi internet usage, there is a pay for option which I would assume is faster. However I stay in a lot of hotels and 256k is very stingy when it comes to free internet usage 1Meg as a minimum... More

A one-night stay on business, this was probably a little better than average for a hotel of this type / price point. The staff I encountered (check-in, check-out and in the bar) were friendly and in two cases went out of their way to be helpful. I didn't eat in the restaurant, but had a snack in the bar on... More

Fairly quick check in, long walk along the drab corridor to our room, took 5 mins to work out how the room card worked(we weren't the only ones)-room smelt musty on arrival, tiny bathroom with a half bath at the most. Extremely uncomfortable bed, lumpy and saggy made for terrible two nights sleep! Did not eat in the hotel so... More
