The best thing about this place is the breakfast which was okay, but only if u like Turkey bacon. The room was horrible and looks like it was last updated in 1985. The shared shower/toilet was an repugnant experience that I would not recommend and the tap water in the room had an unpleasant fizzing sensation. However it was extremely... More

This hotel is in a great location for the station, very good value for money (half the price of the next cheapest hotel I could find when I booked), and the staff are very friendly. Don't be put off by the negative reviews which are unrealistic, yes it's not the ritz but then it doesn't pretend to be either. The... More

I got booked to stay here with work, presumably because they wanted somewhere they wouldn't have to pay much - it was horrible. It is so in need of an update, my bedsheets had weird stains on them, the carpet was threadbare, it just needs a complete refurbishment. The only reason I didn't give it one star is because the...

I stayed for a night while waiting to catch a train the next day, and got what I was hoping for. The room was minimalist, clean and had all it needed, including tea, coffee and a kettle. The cooked breakfast was made well and filling, though it's worth pointing out that there are no pork products available. The wifi was... More

Tired and dated guest house, good location, friendly staff. Checked out after 3 nights because of the noise (TVs on full volume, shouting banging on doors etc) manager was apologetic but you need to sleep when you've got work in the morning, no refund offered won't return. Not worth what we paid!

I was in Ipswich on business. The hotel ticked all the boxes what I wanted. It was clean and everybody there was friendly and the service I got was just right.The only thing I did not like was breakfast, I thought the breakfast room closed to early in the morning and perhaps they should add an extra hour to the...

Front bedroom with view of station, but noise not disturbing due to double glazing. Two single beds pushed together to make a double, would have been ok but one was firm and one was squishy. Sheets clean and fresh. Small tube style TV in room, buzzed incessantly and couldn't watch it. Ensuite was small plastic cubicle like you get on... More

Ok.there were no signs of opulence but the bed was large,clean & comfortable. The shower may have been lacking power but the water was hot. ( I had stayed in a rather upmarket B&B... More

i think some of the reviews are unfair, i personally found my stay at this hotel, a good stay, the noise from train station opposite, is not something the hotel can change, i stayed in a standard single room, it was cosy, not cramped, i was ok with noisy trains, once the windows and shutters are shut, its not that...
