This was my second trip to Holiday Inn Ipswich Orwell. I stayed in Room 3 (Orwell Suite). The room itself was good, if not a little dated. The bathroom had recently been refitted and was of a good standard, however there was a clear lingering smell of paint that, after a while, became overpowering which was disappointing. The Holiday Inn... More

Stayed one night for a relative's birthday party. The room was clean, and the shower was especially good. The staff were helpful and courteous even though they were very busy as there was a wedding and our party on at the same time. They always found time to help and get you what you wanted. The breakfast was good -... More

Ok I've tried to call the front desk 3 times, let it ring between 10-15 times each time with no answer. So I will complain here. How much longer is the disco going on? It's soooo loud!!

Hotel was fine, comfortable, and quiet but the staff were rude, unhelpful and mostly barely competent. Food in general was fine and the breakfast was fine too. Rooms were clean and very quiet. A comfortable nights stay with an iron needed in every room. Waiting 55 minutes for a iron in the morning is ridiculous.

A room is a room, but breakfast was disgraceful, tea undrinkable, food selection meagre, dried out and looked and tasted like it had been there hours. Staff rarely visible and uninterested. £16.00. £16.00! At least the toast was edible once I found some bread that wasn't dry and hard.
