Hotel is deemed dog friendly. Whilst it might be there are no water bowls and in Feb the bedroom was far too hot for us or the dog. The harbour area is not for dogs with the only grass around a nearby church ! or the country park. Food (salad and rib eye) poor. Service slack.Will not stay again despite... More

First time in Ipswich, the hotel is positioned in a stunning location overlooking the beautiful busy harbour, on arrival it is sunny too, and makes it even more special. The Hotel is luxurious and funky at the same time. Friendly and sophisticated at the same time too. The room assigned to us looked big and lovely decorated. Although we were... More

A large group of us booked an afternoon tea as part of a day of events for a hen do. On arrival we were seated, to dirty crockery and glasses. We were then told how afternoon tea worked and awaited our treat!!! £17 for a couple of sandwiches which totalled 1 slice of bread, including the use of the crusts!... More

I had no idea what to expect when I was assigned to work a week in Ipswich. This hotel surpassed all my expectations. Beautifully decorated and very spaceous rooms await. The location on the waterfront couldn't be better. Friendly staff and a delicious restaurant. This hotel beats even my London favorites!

My fiancé and I have just returned from a fantastic dbb stay at this hotel! A perfect night away! The hotel is beautifully designed and furnished with wonderful eclectic pieces everywhere! Our bedroom overlooking the marina was tastefully decorated, clean and had ample mod cons! The most impressive part being the copper bath in the bedroom. However do not underestimate... More

The staff were helpful and friendly and unobtrusive. As for the food, well, divine!! Highly recommend staying here but be prepaired for... More

The room was luxurious with a comfortable bed, lovely armchairs and a fantastic powerful walk in shower. The hotel is very nicely decorated with lots of art pieces dotted about. Breakfast was very good, quality bacon and sausage. The staff were attentive and polite. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a lovely stay, however I would not use the restaurant again, found the food pricey and bland and boring. Better surrounding eateries. Also breakfast portions are very small. You pay a good price and would expect more for your money. Still rate 4/5 as the hotel itself is clean and modern. Maybe with bigger portions I would stay again.

Our large room overlooked the tranquil Harbour and was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. An excellent location to explore the local area, it is ideally situated to the town. Service was very good, staff attentive and polite. During our two night stay we dined in just the once and the food was excellent. Enjoyed our stay and we will be... More

Superb in every way. Fabulous room, overlooking the marina and in old part of hotel so felt like a loft conversion with plenty of space and character. Two huge chairs so you can rwad or watch TV without lying on the bed, great features all round. Food very good, we had the "grape escape" option which was great value (but... More
