I know these places aren't the height of luxury, but sometimes they feel tired, fusty or just downmarket. However, this one was clean and fresh, and I suspect the bathrooms have just been refitted as the shower was pure heaven: sparkling, spacious and powerful. the reception staff couldn't have been more friendly, and the food next door was pretty decent...

We had stayed at this hotel about 3 years ago and thought it looked very tired and unloved, sadly when we returned this weekend it still had the same look about it. Some of the exterior window frames are in desperate need of repair, the car park and surrounding areas needs tidying up a bit especially as first impressions are... More

We stayed here for Jimmy's farm harvest festival and it was well located a short taxi ride away.

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
