We needed a hotel for a couple of nights as we were going to a spa locally. Arriving at the hotel it looks a bit tired and in need of a lick of paint and new nets. Inside is a different story, true there were areas that needed some attention... But the important things were nailed. Customer service is really...

The staff are very friendly but the hotel is so tired. The rooms and communal areas are in desperate need of refurbishment. Otherwise it is a standard HI hotel. Use of the adjacent David Lloyd leisure centre is available for guests.

This was a short stay for a family occasion in the area. We were warmly and very well greeted and looked after when we arrived. The person on reception was excellent. The room looked good and all seemed well. However shortly after entering the room we spotted a problem. Reporting it to the receptionist she moved us to another room....

Stayed at the Hotel for business , the hotel is dated but clean. Room was OK, it is near the ring road so there is road noise if you have a room facing it . It has a nice bar and the food is surprisingly OK , if a bit on the expensive side. There are a few other places...

Stayed as a large group, the hotel staff catered to all needs from food to rooms. All the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The night porter Igor definitely went the extra mile on a few occasions. We found the food service and cleaning staff very good, friendly, easy to deal with and flexible.

Holiday Inn rooms are fairly standard in layout although my room was smaller than most i'd stayed at before an I stay regulary at the Express in Colchester. This one offers a pool. Staff are very hospitable but the front facing rooms pick up all the lorry traffic and there are a .of of lorrys heading towards Felixstowe

I stayed here for 1 night as I was working nearby and had an early start. The Holiday Inn is very conveniently located with easy access off the A14 and has plentiful car parking. On arrival it's nice to see a building with some character, especially against the Premier Inn situated across the roundabout. The reception area is welcoming and...

We were late arriving in Ipswich the first night. Ransome's isn't the prettiest part of town, but that didn't put us off.
