Stayed for one night which?St in the area for business. The hotel may have been good in the past and it may have potential for the future, but in its present state it' s a "no go." The exterior appearance is good but rooms and public areas are shabby. The food is overpriced for the standard. There is no WiFi... More

Do not be misled by the appearance of the hotel or judge it by its restaurant, I have had a nice meal there and the original building and grounds are attractive. As a hotel it's pretty crummy. I will start with the wi-fi because I know to many tavellers its absence is an immediate no no. The literature cunningly states... More

The hotel is promoting spa days and advertises itself as being a peaceful, relaxing hotel which is what we were looking forward to. In reality it couldn't be more opposite. The swimming pool décor is nice, the facilities are good yet there are young children allowed in. Although signs say no shouting or throwing things in the pool, there was... More

Food was great, couldn't fault the customer service however, rooms very shabby needing attention. We asked to move and was given the choice of 3. They were all similar. Bathrooms needing to be revamped, dirty or should I say tiles needing a good clean, the fan did not work so a hot shower soon steamed the room. TV's small, could... More

We had a three night relaxation break at this hotel which included a cream tea on arrival, wine and chocolates in the room and breakfast and evening meal. The meals were excellent, breakfast everything one could want and the evening meal excellent!! Four choices for each course. The meals were of a high quality and service excellent. The staff gave...

I booked the hotel for a spa hen weekend for my friend. Booking through spa breaks was a little cumbersome - lots of toing and froing with emails and then some information was not passed on to the hotel leading to a member of the party not recieving the treatment she had booked. However the hotel themselves did as much... More

Me and my better half recently stayed at Belstead Brook Hotel for a weekend. Before mentioning more, I should note that the hotel is just outside of Ipswich, but the town centre is very easily accessed by road, as is the A14 road. We arrived on the Friday afternoon, and were checked in very swiftly by the polite and helpful... More

The staff were great. They were welcoming and friendly when we checked in and explained everything that we needed to know. Our room (323) was clean and tidy with French doors opening to a grassed area. Spacious room with a comfortable bed. The spa facilities were good and we both had a facial and indian head massage which was great.... More
