We have just returned from a coach weekend away and had a fantastic time. The coach trip was to the Christmas Fayre in nearby Bury St Edmonds, so the hotel was ideally located, with plenty of car parking space for a coach!! The room was a lot bigger than we had expected, having been on previous coach holidays, and ending... More

Visiting family in Ipswich for Christmas, we found this hotel to be very convenient for the A14 and for the east side of the town. We have children in wheelchairs, and they let us have a downstair suite which was more than capable of accommodating us all - with the children on a sofa bed which (unlike many) they found... More

Easy to locate hotel from the A14. Well lit area, plenty of parking. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Booking in was easy as was check out. Comfortable room, with wifi and everything else you would expect. Quiet and clean and I slept well which is a big bonus. Happy to stay here again.

We have just spent a night at this rather tired and dated hotel. Although the bed was extremely comfortable, the rest of the room was distinctively average. Some of the electrical sockets weren't working, and there were no sockets next to the bed. I have to use an electrical device when I sleep, and luckily keep a long extension lead... More

Had to travel to Ipswich for a family celebration. This particular Holiday Inn was chosen for it's close proximity to the party venue. In total my family booked three rooms, one family room and two doubles. At check-in the receptionist booked in one couple to the family room. So when the "family" arrived that caused problems and the subsequent billing... More

I travelled to this hotel with a school party consisting of 26 rugby players competing in The St Joseph's rugby festival. We stayed on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis and the hotel cooked good nutritional pasta type food on both evenings at our request.

Absolutely nothing at all negative to say about our evening at Discomania last night. The food was very good - hot, lots of it and it tasted great! The staff were very efficient and friendly; we were asked at each course if everything was ok or if we needed anything. The disco, and the dj, were great too. Great atmosphere... More

To book into a hotel where the receptionist is more interested in talking to her mate than in the customers was surprising. To then have to ask where my room was, where the restaurant was and what time breakfast was served set the scene for a stay where the customer was not at the heart of this business. The rooms...
