I stopped over for one night at the Holiday Inn, Orwell on a business trip. The room itself was as you'd expect - a bit old fashioned but perfectly functional. Unfortunately a previous patron must have been a smoker as the room, and especially the bathroom, stank of stale smoke. The staff were friendly enough and came around to give... More

An overnight stay in Ipswich brought me to the hotel for a second time. Room was a great size, plenty of towels, in bathroom. Room was very hot despite turning off radiator and opening window, but a trip to reception soon got the problem sorted quickly by the hotel staff who also provided a fan. Reception staff were efficient and... More

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and always enjoy the experience, as we did on our latest stay. The hotel has a slightly old-fashioned, but very charming, feel about it. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and the rooms are always clean and comfortable.
