Travelled to Ipswich to visit family and, as usual, there was not much in the way of accommodation. Ipswich has lots of events throughout the year and it's hard to find places to stay. It's a very pretty town with enough to do for a weekend. The Railway Museum is surprisingly interesting and great for reminiscing (and photographs!).
Quest Apartments are fine but we did smell the sewerage smell that others have mentioned when we first walked into one of the bedrooms. Either we got used to it or it went away. We had a two bedroom apartment with a studio extension as there were three of us and we wanted our own rooms and at least two bathrooms. Unfortunately, I got the noisiest bedroom - there seemed to be some kind of water pipe noise, like a cistern filling in the room upstairs, that was very loud and went all night.
But if you stay here, you will definitely need a car as you are not near the city centre or any shops.
Ipswich has about 4 or 5 really nice cafes, a cute little antique store called Lutveys in Brisbane St, a couple of great knick-knack shops and a great shoe shop in Ellenborough Street.
The Japanese Gardens are a real treat and the Art Gallery is definitely worth a look.
It's a great town and to think it was so completely devastated by the floods of Jan 2011, it's amazing how it's sprung back to life.
