Another hidden gem for Premier Inn! This one benefits from its location which is very close to the A12 and also overlooking the marina. It is also accessible to local transport and there is a nearby bus stop. No hidden surprises with the food which caters for all but the service in the restaraunt was a bit slow. The rooms... More

I stayed here on my own as I had a conference nearby the next day. Clean, good size room and bathroom, big TV and a great breakfast in the morning. This felt like it has recently undergone an upgrade of the rooms. Would not hesitate to recommend staying here.

Lovely location, with rooms overlooking the marina. Friendly and helpful staff. The food menu is lovely with a range to suit all tastes. Easy and quick access to the A14 which in turn gives quick access to the A12. A must stay!.

I have stayed here before on my own but this time I brought my wife. Like last time, I found the entrance arrangements in to the car park a little strange-I am used to using the first opening as the entrance but the sign attempts to direct you in to the second opening which I resisted. The car park was... More

Stayed two nights as a party of seven in four rooms. Room very comfortable and facilities exceptionally clean - most looked almost unused. Spare pillows and towels in room so no need to ask. Breakfast in the restaurant next door was freshly cooked and hot. A great base to attend a family wedding. If all Premier Inns are up to... More

Friendly helpful staff with modern and clean rooms. Car park a bit small but I did get a space. I prefer restaurants in the hotel rather than next door so I didn't have breakfast but the pub did look nice. Staff ordered taxi for me no complaints at all

Booked a £29 family room and couldn't have been better!! Fabulous, large, clean, modern room with everything we needed. Bed was a little hard for my preference ( but I'm fussy!!) Staff very friendly and helpful. Check in was fast and efficient. Large TV, good heating, great shower! Breakfast next door in the pub was very good and very cheap... More

I was plesantly surprised when arriving at this hotel. I stayed one night for a swimming competition in Ipswich. The room was spacious, exceptionally clean with a large flat screen tv. Bed was comfortable, good heating controls and additional pillows. What more could I want. Hotel staff were friendly and there is a restaurant just across from the hotel. We... More
