We stayed here for one night on April 1st, not quite knowing what to expect from the reviews we had read. Glad we did, though, because the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating, the room was warm (even with no heating on) and spacious, and wonderful sea view. We would stay again. Okay, not much had been done, inside or... More

Lovely hotel, friendly staff , and yummy breakfast. Lovely sea view from our room. Excellent price for the weekend and would recommend it to everyone. I needed extra pillows and it was no problem for the lady on reception. Room cleaned daily with fresh towels.

Friendly staff, very good food but terrible room. Twin room on top floor with sea view was in desperate need of updating. Smell of sewage on stairway approach to room. Radiators not working, although an electric fan heater was provided. Single glazed sash windows shook with the wind howling through them all night long. TV did not work. No kettle... More

Spent a very pleasant weekend in Felixstowe out of season staying at The Marlborough Hotel which is situated right opposite beach with sea views. After a warm greeting we found our room to be clean and warm which was our main requirements and although it would appear outdated there was a charm to it that modern fittings dont give. The... More

Christmas in Felixstowe. This was a chance to get away and spend time on our own over Christmas. Arranged by Leisurebreaks from Bridgend we were collected by Cresta Coaches from Magor services for the five hour trip West to East across England. It was a torrential downpour from Magor to Felixstowe, and despite an extended stay at Chippenham's Leigh Delaware... More

I chanced in here one evening when on a whim I wanted to stay somewhere next to the sea, and decided I would investigate Felixstowe. This ticked the box for being next to the sea an for one night I wasnt going to be picky. I wanted a light meal and although ham salad wasnt on the bar menu, they... More

I stayed here for four nights. I stay in Felixstowe alot for work but this is my first time in this hotel. The hotel is run down and in desperate need of a refurbishment. The price of £60 a night is just too much a hotel of this standard. I sleep on my front and the bed was so worn... More

I had my daughter's Christening Party at Marlborough Hotel 2 weeks ago and I am very happy with the help I received from the hotel staff. Even though the party was delayed by the church ceremony taking longer than we have anticipated, the staff was patient and friendly, serving dinner 2 hours later than scheduled. My friends and family gave... More
