        Nice staff food was quite good. I think it the reception area could do with a spuceup as its looking dated.

        Convenient for a meeting we had

        No heating on in room and asked twice for it to be turned on or to be given a separate freestanding heater - the receptionist said he would get the heating turned on but it didn't happen. Also quality of food in restaurant was very poor.

      • Older travelers

        At £36.00 a night it was a steal. It would still be good vfm at £50.00 pn, any more and it would lose its competetive edge.

        Only one bedside table.

        We did not like waking up the next morning and find a bill pushed under the door, the bill they wanted to charge us for was using the phone three times to the value of £32 when we checked out we pointed this out to the person on the desk they said dont worry and cleared the bill, my point is how many guiest dont look at the bill and pay the bill for phone calls that they have not made. this is the first time it has happend to us , i would not like it to happen to other people. we will be using you again to make a booking

        On the whole my stay was good. Room was comfy and staff polite.

        I didn't have the breakfast as £13.95 is ridiculously expensive.

        Overall good value for money.For one night stay, comfortable room, friendly staff and easy access.

      • Older travelers

        Good breakfast and friendly staff.

        Steam from poorly ventilated room and bathroom made the room windows run inside with condensation and they were covered in mould. The double bed was made up of two singles which had a lump in the middle! The left side had no bedside table for light or placing glasses.

      • Older travelers

        Convenient to explore Suffolk, good links to the motorway. Good size room. No noise experienced.

        Limited restaurant food choice, staff busy coping with wedding and birthday party and neglected hotel guests who wished to eat. Location not exactly picturesque. Located on industrial park. Only hotel available on a late booked weekend needing to be near Ipswich.

        Breakfasts were from 1950's, very mediocre buffet. Friday breakfast order taken by waitress, we were one of only 2 couples in restaurant, ordered bacon & eggs. But it took over 15 mins on cold plates. Saturday, was only a buffet, with very tired food some items had run out. Menu price was an incredible £13.95 each. It costs so little to give good quality fresh piping hot breakfasts
