              • Family with children
                10.0

                Very good location in Ipswich center - with a very supportive staff and management team. Room was spotless.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                Clean rooms, generally comfortable. Close to the restaurants in the town centre.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Location near wedding venue. Discounted price through "Booked.net". Excellent reception staff. Comfortable, well appointed room.

                Newly refurbished room but a few things did not work properly.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                The staff at this hotel were genuinely friendly, courteous and highly professional.We did have a problem with noise caused by a wedding party early in the morning, but the reception staff dealt with the matter in a very effective and fair manner, we were given a partial refund.We would like to make a special mention of Sofia in reception who went out of her way to be very helpful and friendly, with nothing being too much trouble.

              • Family with children
                8.2

                the excellent breakfast selection including fresh fruit and raw vegetables. I also liked the style and decor.

                parking was limited in the hotel car park, but there is a large public car park directly opposite with free overnight parking.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                Good location right in the centre. Staff friendly and helpful.

                My only complaints were the fact we ordered a twin room and the other bed had not been made up, the mattresses were memory foam which, in my opinion is the most uncomfortable surface to sleep on in the world, and I begrudge paying an extra £5 to park in the hotel owned carpark right outside their door. Surely this should be free if you are staying.

              • Couple
                7.4

                Pleasant stay but the bedroom doors in the morning were so loud. Do not expect to sleep in past 7.30 unless you are used to sleeping in jail

              • Single
                5.4

                The rooms are always a good siza at Novotel, I like the quirky french design, the breakfasts are good and its useful to be able to have it in your room if you are working early.

                This one seemed below standard for Novotel, the staff were friendly enough but hoplessly disorganised, the so called Gym and Spa facilities consisted of a very tatty town gym 5 minutes walk away, and the whole place felt a bit down at heel for over £100 per night. Dissapointing.

              • Single
                8.8

                Good breakfast - vegetarian sausages without any requests - very unusual

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                Convenient for the music festival and shopping.

                Did not like having to pay extra for other facilities.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                The Staff were very efficient and helpfull and the breakfast was very good. Great location for town.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Spacious room and luxurious en-suite and in the perfect location close to the marina.

                Parking is limited

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Near to quay (which is where the nice part of Ipswich is). Breakfast offers extensive choice, especailly good were the almond croissants. Not busy while we were there so no waiting in queues or for lifts and quick good service. Car park was £6 for the day but right on site and 'safe' parking.

                Three Irish coffees and one glass of wine was £26 which I thought was a bit pricey.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Very polite staff, quiet room, good location

              • Older travelers
                5.0

                Having to pay for car parking and noise of the road outside
