Stayed at this hotel after finding it on sale on the Accor website.
I stay in Ipswich on a regular basis and normally stay in one of the budget hotel chains. However, as I was booking a holiday on the Accor site I came across this hotel cheaper than both of the budget hotels I normally stay at.
I do use Novotel hotels when on holiday and therefore have a benchmark to compare. I can't comment on the parking costs or quality of the food as I use the train and eat at independent restaurants.
As regards the entrance and reception these are modern and clean and I noticed that there are on-going decorations. There is a fitness room and as per most hotels of this chain consists of two running machines and a cycle machine with multigym style machine. The lounge area is large and comfortable and a nice place for a quiet drink. Service, however, can be slow.
The room was large and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was modern, very clean and well stocked with the "essentials". There is plenty of storage space and the usual ironing board and iron. The minibar only contained water at £2.50 and milk for the complimentary tea and coffee.
For a few nights stay it's location is great right in the town centre, close to shop's, station and Portman Road stadium.
I would probably not pay the full price so next time it's back to budget chains
