From the outside we were OMG hope this place is ok.... We were presently surprised. The hotel from the road looked like a block of flats and the car park seemed small. The rooms were lovely - only downside only one pillow. We didn't eat at the hotel but we did have a drink and thought they were reasonably priced... More

Friendly staff and a great, atmospheric reception / bar area. Really clean, modern rooms with a great TV system and decent shower. Good selection for breakfast, on the expensive side at £15pp but luckily we had a summer deal with free breakfast! My partner is Coeliac so I gave them the heads up a couple of days before our stay.... More

First thing that greets you upon entering the hotel is a bar surrounded by a foul smell of old cologne or something. When I tried to check in for my 5 night stay, the girl asked me how would I like to pay for the stay although it was already paid for a month earlier. After that I made my... More

An easy five minute walk down the hill from the train station gives this hotel a convenient location, and walking to the town centre is hardly a chore either. Once you’ve worked out where the shortcut round the rear of the restaurant is it also gets even easier, so it’s a shame for the this access point not be made... More

The hotel itself is very nice, with clean, stylish rooms and comfy beds, however, unfortunately our experience was overshadowed by the shoddy customer service we received at the front desk. We had called the day before our arrival and arranged to check in early and were told a note had been made on our booking. However when we arrived the... More

Stayed here for the Ipswhich speedweekend recently. The hotel is easy to find however the car parking situation is awful. Admittedly it does warn you on the website that their own car park is very limited however when we arrived we at least expected to be able to pull up outside the reception and unload our bags. The car park... More

I've used Penta Hotels before and here keeps to the recipe. It's a lovely higher end hotel and the prices at the bar reflect that slightly but not too much. However you do get that back with your stay, really well designed, a great vibe here & by far the best bar area - love it. Great people, fantastic spec... More
