The staff member who greeted me was courteous and friendly and informative and very welcoming; five star Imran 😃 I was able to park on the premises and the room offered at the top of the house was warm and comfortable. Wifi is free and the signal good with no restrictions and there is a TV with free view and...

Easy to find, town centre in walking distance and parking at the hotel. Very friendly staff and you get a breakfast in the price. Walking is a must in this town as they have plenty for all including the children.

Excellent location, very helpful friendly staff lovely clean room and plentiful breakfast early check in was a real bonus and we were even allowed to leave the car parked at the hotel the next day. Great value for money a real find

This was my 2nd time visiting Ipswich and I did not want to fork out too much for a cosy hotel (stayed at the hip Pentahotel before) so decided to try this hotel instead. It's quite good -- you get what you pay for. The person at the reception helped carry my bags upstairs to my room. The bathroom was...

Having read some of the reviews on here I kind of didn't know what to expect. However I found the place ok, there was parking. The hotel itself looked dated and there was some obvious refurbishment going on, but I got upgraded from a single en suite to a double which was great. The room itself was clean and tidy...

Have stayed in several hotels in my time and this is by far and away the worst ever I have visited. Everything from the parking to the accommodation, firstly if you want to park at the back of the premises, do not arrive on anything wider than a pushbike or else you might struggle. To the room, what can I...

Very cheap, does the basics, friendly staff, Rooms are fit for purpose, en suite bathroom, all worked fine. Breakfast was poor, some sort of compressed meat replaced bacon, can't imagine they are saving much but it was awful. Still It's a basic B&B very cheap and that's what you get. The big bonus though is the location, walking distance to...

It is a place very easy to find, not far from the main route getting to Ipswich. About 10-15 minutes walk from center, nice surrounding. Often lodgers are labour workers for temporary accommodations. Prices low according to the market. The breakfast is great, according English standard. Wi-fi, internet discontinuous, building structures or any possible reason.It is not of my kind...

What can I say? I was only there one night, I arrived late and left early. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the wifi was very fast and just worked without any stupid portals or logins. I got a good night's sleep and it was quiet on a Saturday night. I didn't stay for breakfast. Although there was...

Not fancy, but it's a B&B, you get a bed and you get breakfast, en suite bathroom is great, but you mainly stay for the location. It's near where some of my family live which is handy, but for everyone else, it's right next to the town center. There's a Tesco near by, a very nice cafe which does takeaway,...
