We booked this hotel via a Virgin Weekend Break package not expecting to be bowled over by the hotel. The room was lovely, we think newly refurbished. The bar was nice and bar food tasty and reasonably priced. We booked an evening meal, which again was a lovely setting, oak panelling and had a historical cosy feel. Service good. The... More

As stated in a recent previous review, I would take the negative articles with a huge pinch of salt. My wife and I stayed here on 26th August in one of the garden rooms (room 323) for my wife's 40th birthday treat. The room was absolutely lovely and in keeping with the rest of the hotel, with French doors to... More

Warm, friendly, helpful staff and a fantastic, professional masseuse! Best body massage & facial ever!! Very nice leisure area with steam room, sauna & pool area. The food was good, breakfast excellent and very close to Jimmy' Farm for a gr8 lunch.

Having read the reviews for this hotel after booking to stay there, I nearly cancelled! So glad I didn't. The stay we had was a great experience, staff were all very friendly and helpful (even a new member on her second day). The main concern was comments about the state of the rooms, ours was clearly better than the bad... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with my elderly father. My partner and I had a superior room which allowed us a bit more space as well as a small balcony and a view of the brook below. I felt that the room could have been a bit cleaner as I found some cobwebs when I was plugging in my... More

My friend and I went to the Belstead Brook as it did spa breaks, this is certainly not a spa hotel and shouldn't offer spa breaks, it was a hotel with a pool sauna steam room room and jacuzzi. The area around the pool was not very nice,and the was nowhere to relax the small roped of area was the... More

People often neglect value for money, and compare hotels without think of there rating and how much they paid. We were at a wedding and the wedding part was faultless. The rooms were ok. Could be a bit more cleaner as there were stains all over the walls, and quite dusty. The bathroom itself is pretty much falling apart and... More

We stayed here as my best friend got married here, which I can't fault for as a venue for the wedding but the rooms ..... Well we had an executive suite! Room was big, huge bed, but so dated. Carpet was in need of replacing and the bathroom was horrendous, body fat and scum on the tiles, floor tiles broken... More

I am still so so disappointed with my stay at this hotel on Saturday (09/08/14) I was visiting Ipswich and had been told about this hotel as an alternative to your standard Ramada, Travel lodge type hotels. I looked online a week or so before and for the date I wanted it was full on the hotels own website, and... More

As you mentioned at the start of your review the hotel was fully booked on most web sites and we had closed out on all the web sites that we could so you knew the hotel was full. Due to contractual obligations there is one site we cannot close out... More
