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

My wife and I have just spent a fabulous Spa Day at the Belstead Brook Hotel. We had full use of the Spa facilities, gym, pool, steam and sauna rooms. We were served with a sumptuous healthy lunch - served at the poolside which was all included and after lunch my wife was treated to a facial massage and I... More

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
