I am a regular visitor to the Novotel at Ipswich. It is superbly located just 2/3 minutes from the cinema, football stadium with a full range of nice restaurants nearby and only 5 minutes from Town centre. The hotel is very welcoming due to its clean and well presented lobby and entrance. There is ample car parking at £7 per...

Polite and friendly staff, the rooms are nice. Only improvement would be more choice at breakfast. The bar staff are really good as well :). Will definitely stay again. Gym is very small, probably only about 10 pieces of equipment

Overall a very pleasant stay. The staff at the breakfast bar at first did not understand when I explained that there will be 4 people having breakfast out of which two are going to pay separately and 2 have a booking. So they looked at us funny and spoke to us if we were going to pay. I explained again....

Room was very spacious the espresso machine was a lovely touch very much enjoyed and the 'little' things in the room were spot on such as toothbrush / comb etc and free water with...

This Novotel is a lot better than it looks from the outside. The lobby and bar area is large and the check-in reasonably efficient. I'm not sure if my room was dubbed a suite but it had a hallway with a separate toilet off to one side as well as the main storage area. Through an inner door was the...

Having read other reviews I was open minded before arriving. I have to say that my two nights away couldn't have been any better. From the start the staff were pleasant and courteous and couldn't do enough to help. This continued throughout my stay. As a business visitor I had a family room which had ample space to relax. The...

There's a limit to how helpful this review is, because we didn't eat in the hotel, not even breakfast, but the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was nice and clean, and the location is perfect for the town centre shopping and bars/restaurants. We had a nice early evening drink in the bar and I used the gym on...

I have been using this hotel for a few years and it really hasn't changed all that much. In general the hotel is well maintained and clean with friendly staff both on reception and at the bar. The rooms are quite large, clean also with flat screen TV, the quieter rooms you will find on the car park side. The...

Staff are helpful and accommodation is comfy but prices have risen with a £5 charge for room service and £2 extra on the main thai red curry. Was so hungry I ate it but the texture of the chicken was horrid and chicken had disintegrated making the sauce bitty and not very appetising. I was told I could collect the...
