I booked two single rooms for two evenings B&B. I first noticed on entering my room that the TV aerial was out of it's wall socket and would not stay in when replaced, this was rectified by a member of staff using brute force to keep it in place. He then at, my request, demonstrated a complicated procedure to set... More

Stayed here for one night. Rooms clean and comfortable defiantly a little dated, but the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good value and set us up for the day. If you want a cheap clean stop in a great location look no further.

Stayed here for a weekend in early July. The hotel is badly in need of refurbishment in many respects. Decoration and carpeting look like they haven't been touched in decades. Positives - bathroom and bed was clean. Breakfast on Saturday was like Fawlty Towers with orders being taken wrongly and mixed up but couldn't fault the Sunday service.

We came here on a mystery weekend. There were about 50 of us , the food was quite acceptable , a buffet breakfast , very helpful friendly staff. But the hotel does need a makeover, all the people I spoke to were relatively happy with their rooms , all clean , but a bit quirky with old fashioned furniture .... More

This hotel is a complete dive! Avoid at all costs, like most of Felixstowe is hasn't been updated for a long time, the receptionist, although friendly, was close to useless and clearly efficiency isn't a word they have heard of!! Breakfast isn't included in the price, which is ridiculous, when you consider the massive new competition! The lock on our... More

We booked even though some reviews have been harsh. It was bank holiday we were visiting my sister nearby and everywhere was full. The hotel us dated with worn out mismatched carpets on the stairs and corridors. The room was clean but very dated with mismatching furniture and broken head board. The cold water tap in the sink didn't work... More

My Husband and I stayed at The Marlborough Hotel for 1 night (having booked for 2). We checked out early due to the room being cold and uncomfortable, the bed and bedding were old and worn and the toilet and separate bathroom were the same with the toilet not flushing and the carpeted floors being damp and dirty. The radiator... More
