    Staff at breakfast were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely. Room felt very outdated and could do with refurbishing. Overall it was good value for money as we were in Ipswich for a friends wedding.

    Room is in need of updating and we only had one bath towel. On check out we were told that it was in a cupboard under the television!! And that lots of guests complain they can't find the extra towel! So why are they still hidden in drawers and not in the bathroom where they should be!??!

    Very nice hotel and layout, ideal for business meeting before the meeting !!!!

    No tea and coffee making in the room. Very hot the evening I stayed - the room was slightly too warm, had to open window then ok...

    Good value, large room. Very peaceful, even though there was a wedding going on.

    It's a really small point but for breakfast there was one flask of hot water for tea for the whole dining room. This was far too small so kept disappearing to be filled up. I felt this was a bit primitive!

    Friendly staff, apart from the receptionist, good food, good selection of drinks at the bar, good prices.

    Abit run-down, bed was too small.

    Price was right, location was good for what I wantedight

    Breakfast was a bit haphazard. tea and coffee served from flasks. 2 slices of toast served for two people. waiting staff didn't seem to want to engage.

    convenient and value for money with adequate parking at the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful.

    The shower could do with a little boosting and the breakfast was somewhat rushed

    Nice size room very pleasant outlook very nice grounds to relax in plenty of outside seating and shade good breakfast We have one complaint there was a wedding reception at the hotel on the Saturday and from 8.30pm untill 12.00 midnight the noise was unbearable as a result of the disco music we could not hear the tele and things were jumping around as a result of the viberation I complained to the managment and was told they were within their rights all I got was sorry, However I was given a £10.00 discount after asking for it. Had I have known that such events took place at this hotel I would not have booked or at least asked or been told that there would be a disco ETC I would recomend others just as long as they were told of any such LOUD evenings Nights.

    The breakfats was ok

    The location was not as was expected and the hotel seemed to be in a time warp regarding decor and furnishings, but I suppose this was reflected in the price.

    Arrived late but was well received at reception with friendly efficient booking in process. Room tidy but dated. Meals at convenient times.

    Food overpriced, extremely basic, poor portions and limited choice. Restaurant is more like a canteen. Staff friendly but too young to appreciate any level of service. Bar has no atmosphere, doesn't even serve crisps, snacks etc and you may need something after visiting the restaurant.Hotel looks impressive from photos but is actually very tired and basic on the inside. Tv is no bigger than most laptops. Stayed one night en route to London with hindsight should have stayed at the usual major chains!

    The food in the evening was awful. Worst I have ever had. Breakfast was better but certainly not worth the £10 you would pay if it was not inclusive in the room rate. I am certain the potatoes were the roasted ones served the previous evening, sliced and warmed up..

    Very helpful staff, happy to take my case up to my room (no lift!) Dining room looks out onto a lovely garden, the food was freshly cooked and arrived quickly ~ a relaxing start to the day.

    Unpretentious, great place to stay. Easily accessible. Great staff. Clean - spotless.

    Decor slightly dated.

    The customer service was excellent from reception and bar to breakfast served by a friendly, efficient young lady called Kat....

    The small television and poor shower.....
