Booked in for two nights this month (Feb). The Sunday check-in was very good with Paula so helpful and nothing to much trouble. The meal was different the Caesar salad was nothing to behold; apparently they have been told to prepare and server it IHG way; so different to the normal way. Head office must try harder. The Indian curry...

This was my first visit to Ipswich and seeing that there are very few hotels in the city centre, I decided to stay here. Yes, it involves a taxi (or bus), but it's not a real problem. I was warmly greeted on arrival by two very pleasant members of staff, and was in my room shortly afterwards. All rooms are...

Having stayed in a Holiday Inn in Bristol two nights before, the standard could not have been more different, definitely no consistency across this chain. Check-in was efficient and friendly, however on getting to my room this was a big disappointment. The room itself was large and bare but the bathroom was tiny, it would have been better to extend...

Dear alliei80 Thank you for completing a review. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay and felt the room was cold . The controls in the room do only control the cooling and the radiators control the heat. After your comments I have instructed my housekeeping team to leave radiators on in occupied rooms.

Booked in for business for the next 3 weeks and looking forward to some holiday inn comfort. Room was pretty good and a decent size including a sofa which is great when you're away from home.

Very pleasant helpful staff greeted us on arrival and throughout our stay. Our room was clean and comfortable with an excellent TV and tea and coffee making facilities.
