Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by foulinesurfer Reasonable price, good pool etc
We found the bed a bit hard and the pillows a tad under-supportive which meant that neither of us slept that well. Breakfast was £14.95 each which was silly money so we went out for breakfast both days to a carvery down the road.
No biscuits in the room was a let-down.
For the money we paid we cannot complain too much!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve & Romy Convenient hotel with great spa facilities
The hotel is close to the A14 and A12 at Ipswich. It is however very quiet and with lots of parking. The pool and sauna are very good although the pool is smallish neither my wife nor I had any problem getting a good swim. The hot tub, steam room and sauna are fine.
The room was very comfortable and convenient. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a reasonably priced hotel close to the major road routes in the Ipswich area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Island traveller WELL RUN AND CLEAN HOTEL LET DOWN BY ITS DIRE FOOD
This hotel is a clean well maintained hotel in a convenient location. The staff are accomodating, very helpful, professional and smartly dressed.
The rooms are standard format for this grade of hotel, clean and well decorated with firm comfortable beds.
Be warned the pillows are on the hard side of comfortable.
The bedroom furniture is adequate but just begining to show its age, the fat screen TV and two chairs are very adequate.
My experience of the food in this hotel is not good possibly dire.
Room only bookoing is advised until the company ups its food standards.
Overall the hotel is clean and well maintained throughout and also well managed.
car parking is secure and convenient.

The holiday inn ipswich is in a great location for visiting places in Suffolk and the surrounding areas, and the rooms are very comfortable, clean, and well maintained. The bathroom too. There are tea and coffee making facilities for that early morning cuppa.The staff here were extremely helpful, pleasant and polite and nothing is too much trouble. The pool and spa area were clean and well maintained and added to a very relaxing stay. We are always impressed with holiday inns in general but would definetly recommend holiday inn ipswich for a comfortable and relaxing break

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Denise007 Lovely place to stay
We arrived after a very busy weekend and found I had been awarded 'Guest of the Day' which was a lovely surprise. It meant our room had been upgraded and we received discounts on our food and free wi-fi. The lady on reception was very helpful and courteous and our room facilities were excellent. Although we had not originally booked an executive suite we would probably book this type of room again due to the extra facilities (safe, refrigerator, ironing board, dressing gowns etc.) and it just felt extra special. We ate in the restaurant where the food was of a high standard and Jade our waitress was brilliant. The pool and bar/leisure areas were also of a very good standard. The only down side to our stay was the fact we had only booked one night and wished we could have stayed longer!

I am a Platimum Elite got the card which expire in 2014. Hotel told me I was gold and refused to accept my card. Was not upgraded. Breakfast was poor and not good value for money would only stay there again if i was desperate due to employee attidues where the customer does not matter

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Symi 3 Staff and service good
As usual staff make this hotel. Also the price is reasonable. Unfortunately there were quite a few guests on one of the days and therefore cook struggled to keep up with bringing out the food. Also there was no choice of bread only sliced white or brown. Normally there would have been uncut bread to choose from. Have stayed at this hotel many times, but not quite as good as normal.
Also there is a large wooden horse, replicating being not far from Newmarket, although last year it had part of the ear missing it was placed in an appropriate place for guests to view. This time it has been put out of the way so no guests can view it. Which is a shame

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheInfoBus Great stay, only marred by the chef!
Lovely, friendly staff, comfortable stay overall. The only thing I can criticise was, when trying to book a table for myself only, in the restaurant, I was advised by the staff to eat in the bar, as chef was having a strop because there was a party of 15 booked also!
How this ego can rule the hotel and their guests is beyond me!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Farcom Pool area
I find it totally unaccepted to let kids under 7 years old use the pool area at all times. This is a place where people want to relax and not hear shouting and screaming of young kids. The hotel should let the kids use the area from the opening time till 2 am. That is the reason I would never stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by supersoprano good value
my friend and I enjoyed our stay in the Holiday Inn Ipswich. It was an airy modern building which was very clean. All the staff we came in contact with were very helpful and friendly. It was near to the town for a visit and ideally situated to the main roads, but not so near that we could hear loud traffic. The breakfast buffet offered a very good choice of food. The pool and sauna facilities were an added bonus that we were able to use and , all in all I felt it was very good value for money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Broken nights sleep
My room number was 165
Did not have a good nights sleep for the 3 nights I stayed at the hotel,
woken up every few hours due to banging noise from the radiator.
I did report fault (several times), I was informed Plumber had checked radiator, but not possible to fix as a reoccurring problem.
Suggest you implement full investigation to resolve this problem or you will continue to have unhappy customers.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PRMW A mixed picture
I arrived late with an early departure for a meeting in London. and the Receptionist was very helpful and considerate. She made sure that everything was as easy as possible and her customer service was outstanding. In the morning I had allowed time for a quick swim. On arrival at the Club I had to wait for the staff member to finish chatting with the cleaner and while I found the signing in sheet. He didn't explain anything including where to find towels. Having found the changing room I returned to collect a towel and as he was still chatting suggested it might have been helpful if he had indicated where they were kept - it was not obvious. He did not supervise the pool - there was a fast swimmer in the non- lap area who was powering up and down with no regard for anyone else. When I went to return the towel the member of staff was reading a paper . I couldn't see the towel basket so I put it on the counter. . He told me I needed to go back the way I had come and put the towel there so I said that as he obviously wasn't busy he might like to do that and it would have been helpful if he had told me that to start with. At that point he was rude.
I did report this at the time. It is not what I am used to in Holiday inns.

Inclusive deal made this stay very good value for money but quality of evening meal was disappointing for a hotel of this standard. Observations on quality were dealt with very professionally and efficiently so we cannot complain about the overall experience and we would use again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by angelraguel nice clean hotel and lovely staff
lots of parking spaces, when we checked in the lady realised we were struggling with all our baggage (new born babies dont travel lightely!) and offered us a person to help us take all our stuff to our room! which was fabulous because it took alot of stress away considering we had been travelling for over 4 hours. The room was bigger than anticipated and nice and clean, everything was all set up, beautiful room. Im gutted we didnt get to use the swimming pool which looked amazing. There was such a good choice for breakfast which was well worth definitely value for money and checking out was nice and quick.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Spangles Distinctly disappointing!
My stay was like a trip back in time, with restricted TV channels and Pay Movies. A thin duvet and no water pressure in the shower. Not what I was expecting of a Holiday Inn. As for breakfast, when will people learn that a hot buffet invariably never is. Everything was cold.
