Muthu Belstead Brook Hotel

Reviewed June 19, 2011

Hotel is a reasonable standard, room was clean and very comfortable. Spa and pool were excelant, better than some that cost a lot more. Dining room is the beat feature, great setting. Breakfast very good, dinner however was average on the 3 course menu, but for the money acceptable. Staff very good. Busy hotel at weekends and weddings etc but did not spoil our stay. Overall for the money and a short stay very good.

We stayed at this hotel for one night and was very impressed. It is not a modern hotel but has lots of character and extensive grounds. We were greeted warmly at reception for check in and given a lovely spacious double room which had a queen bed. Both the room and bathroom were very clean and well presented. We ate in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast and the standard of the food was very high. Good swimming pool and parking also. We would certainly stay here again as we felt it represented good value for money.

What a lovely place, went here for our 32nd wedding anniversary, we were not disapointed. Executive room certainly met our expectations, comfort, size, and most important, cleanliness. The food and service in the restaurant was exemplary. The swimming changing rooms (ladies) certainly could do with updating, but I will always prefer old and clean to new and dirty. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were more than adequate and contributed to the enjoyment of our stay. the staff were friendly and efficient, we will definatley be visiting again.

very nice and old building.
the staff are great and very helpful,
the food is good, very nice to sit in the bar and order food there ,
the best thing about this hotel is the indoor pool and the gym, when you come after a working day its the best place to relax at, all accessories included (jacuzzi, sauna and even Tanning Bed).
the room is big, although it is not new and does need a small push up its okay and comfortable.
free wifi in all the hotel including the rooms.

Room Tip: if you need the view ask for the 2nd floor

We have just returned from the Belstead Brook Hotel where I took my husband for his birthday, The hotel is stunning and does need some updating but is clean and we found our room to be very adequate and also overlooked the brook which was nice. Only negative point I would make was that there was a terrible musty smell once you made your way up the stairs to the second floor which was very overpowering. Apart from that this hotel is a must!! breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and the restaurant was very nice and made you feel like you were staying in a delightful country manor hotel.
On the saturday evening we sat in the garden which was also a lovely experience as the gardens are very well kept and the weather was gorgeous..we will definitley be going back and to be honest I cannot wait.

We were recommended by the local TIB in Ipswich and were pleased with the result. We stayed two nights and the only concern we had was that on our arrival mid afternoon, we had to wait some 15minutes to get a drink from the bar. Room was comfortable and overlooked a brook which gave a pleasant outlook to wake up to, staff were very friendly and professional at all times. Breakfast had good choices and plenty of it.
Overall the hotel's interior is getting a little tired and in need of a revamp, for the money this is a shortfall.

Room Tip: Away from the lift and overlooking the brook
