« Clean, efficient and centrally located »

Everything that is needed for an overnight business stay. I particularly liked the TV dinner pods in the restaurant.

« A very satisfactory stay »

A good central position ensures easy access to major routes out of the city. The close proximity to the marina with its restaurants was pleasing. The room had all the facilities we required. The only amenity missing seems to be no personal control of airco?

« Friendly and enjoyable stay at the Ipswich »

From check in to check out everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The desk and restaurant staff in particular were excellent

« Tired example of Novotel usually high standards »

The location was perfect. The room was ok. There was no way of keeping the room cool though other than a small window opening. The lift was slow and felt like it would stop or break at any minute. The staff were friendly though and helped out with issues. The worst thing was the breakfast- none of the imagination or flair shown by other novotel in UK or other places in the world. Continental breakfast with no boiled eggs or even the promised selection of cold meats and cheeses was only ham and dried up sliced cheese obviously from a packet!!

« Novotel, Ipswich Review »

Hotel clean and comfortable but bedroom was too hot as it faced the sun all day. Closing the curtains helped to lower the temperature and the ready provision of an electric fan was much appreciated but air conditioning would have helped even more so. Opening the window let in a lot of traffic noise from vehicles using the complex of roundabouts adjacent to the hotel.

Sam S. Business - 14/07/2017
« Business overnight stay »

Comfortable bed, but loud traffic noise due to busy roundabout just outside window. Have stayed many times before and never had this problem so think this was just due to where room was situated (room 422) Friendly and helpful staff. I ate at hotel and meal was good with a generous portion size. There was a big party in the restaurant so I was expecting a long wait but I was served quickly. Ideally located for shops or restaurants.

« Perfect »

The team at Ipswich make it a pleasure to stay away from home on business. The staff are exceptional. Front desk and restaurant/ bar are efficient, friendly and very helpful.

« Solid comfortable 3* »

The room didn't have aircon and was somewhat dated - sofa had a big burn hole in it and curtain liner had a couple of holes. Otherwise it was a good size, clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was a standard buffett nothing special, it was difficult to get milk though - don't know why there weren't more jugs but waitress gave us more on request. It isn't a standout hotel in anyway but a good place for a stop over. Wifi was reliable for working staff were friendly and efficient. That's about it really.

« Not up to standard! »

Unfortunately the toilet smelt very strong of urine so hadn't been cleaned properly. Bed linen smelt of raw eggs, carpets stained in room and corridor leading to room. I appreciate wedding party going on but unfortunately meant I got no sleep 1st night, 2nd night doors were constantly being slammed by residents. Wasn't impressed that after a long drive from London to arrive to find there was no parking. Didn't bother asking as previous reviews had mentioned they were told to try McDonald's across the road. Managed to get parking 2nd night but amazed that you even charge, residents staying should be free! Cups within room were heavily stained with ring marks, not clean at all. Plus the fact I reserved my stay with a credit card, I still believe you should give the option to pay how the person chooses. Was quite amazed that payment had been taken already despite my early check out still having almost 3hrs left. Especially when I wanted to pay cash.

« Lovely weekend »

It was our first stay with a Novatel, the hotel was very clean, the staff were friendly and helpfull. The mattress on our bed was fantastic and the curtains really blacked out the room at night. we would definately book again. It may be worth mentioning the evening bar staff didn't know how to make a liquor coffee, however he was brave enough to attempt it with my dubious instructions so kudos to him.

« Another great stay »

Another enjoyable weekend in this centrally placed hotel in Ipswich. Ideal as a stopping off point for exploring the county town of Suffolk and the beautiful surrounding countryside and perfect walking beaches.

« Very comfortable room but why did it have to be above the ballroom? »

I stayed for two nights and appreciated the cleanliness and comfort of the room. However, I'd had a long trip followed by an equally long day at a conference, and really needed a good night's sleep on the Saturday. I thought I'd requested a quiet room - as it happened the band was extremely loud and I didn't get to sleep until after midnight. Overslept the next day and missed breakfast!

« Helpful staff, comfortable room and quiet. »

I stay here regularly and the experience is always the same, which is why I come back. The staff are attentive and respond to dietary needs well.
