“Ideally located , and brand new”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Currently staying here on business. The hotel is located next to so many great restaurants on the Quayside. Also walking distance to the town also for pubs. The rooms are all immaclute as new , and the breakfast is well worth it , cooked to order or help yourself at the buffet . One of the best premier inns I have ever stopped in.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Great location and as other reviewers have said staff were excellent - friendly and helpful even when under pressure. For a budget hotel this place is great value. Couple of niggles though: soundproofing between rooms poor and restaurant stops menu at 8.30 - Ipswich generally seems to stop serving food at 9pm which is very odd! Initial car park entrance is hard to spot, but minor hassle. The rooms are clean and comfortable and location excellent - no prizes for hotel architecture!

This new hotel which opened in March is in a great spot. Across the road is the excellent waterside with views of boats, lots of cafes, bars and restaurants. One could expect to pay much more for this kind of position

The hotel itself seems much more luxurious than most other premiers we have stayed in.Free car parking on site and another car park a few steps away is excellent for a city centre hotel The restaurant was great for breakfast with plenty of choice.

Best of all were the staff. Friendly, efficient and very helpful. I should like to mention young Kate. She should go a long way if she wishes in the Premier chain

Room Tip: Probably at the back overlooking the internal car park will be the quietest

Self service check is easy, made easier by the helpful staff who tell you what to do!
Rooms are clean and comfortable with good air conditioning.
Car parking was easy to find and charged in with the price of the room.
The breakfast buffet was just excellent, with a really good choice of cold and hot foods. Usual fruit juices were complimented by a good choice of tea varieties and a decent cup of coffee, if needed.
The staff were all, without exception, pleasant to talk to and anxious to help.
Walk just 50 metres and you are on the quayside with its choice of bars, restaurants and a pleasant place to stroll.
Definitely recommended.

A typical Premier Inn centrally located. Conveniently there's good car parking. For the first time I used the 'good night's sleep or your money back' offer, because other guests were noisy. I got my refund with no hassle.

Our stay at the PI in Ipswich was our first time of this chain, and we were very pleased by the experience.
Easy check in, large room, comfortable bed, bath that filled quickly and very helpful and friendly staff. Big plus was the air-conditioning, it was hot and humid when we visited Ipswich and the air-conditioning made for a very comfortable stay.
Only downside would be that if you were staying for a few days, then there is nowhere to unpack your case. There is a hanging rail for shirts, etc, but no draws for underwear, socks etc.
The Inn's Kitchen restaurant serves an Italian themed menu which we didn't sample. Breakfast is a buffet of both hot and cold items, all very appetising.
Highly recommended.

Great hotel - perfect location for centre of Ipswich. Lovely room, really clean and spacious. Friendly staff and helpful. Did feel really sorry for Emma who was having to clean the grout with a toothbrush as the manager thought it looked dirty - looked perfectly clean to us!!!
