This is a very attractive hotel. Beautifully clean. Lovely look in the bar and the restaurant. Lovely comfortable rooms. Then you have the Staff...... We were invisible to start with. No greeting when we arrived. Then we had a drink at the bar she wasn't too bad. When we checked out the guy didn't even look at us! Wanna check...

This is a really lovely quirky hotel and my overall rating would have been much higher but the mattress on the bed was so hard we had the worst nights sleep. When you enter the hotel you check in at the bar. The overall layout is just gorgeous. However, the staff checking us in were not very friendly or smiley...

Exquisite few days at the Penta hotel ipswich. The food was amazing along with the really friendly staff who served me, I believe their names may have been Elena, Talia and Jayne-neen? (I apologise if I've spent names wrong or missed anyone out). Will defiantly be coming back here next time work makes me do a training week, thanks penta!...

My partner and I stayed at this hotel last night. It's such a lovely hotel. The bar had a great feel to it with big arm chairs, sofas and a free pool table. The room we stayed in was spacious, clean and had everything we needed - including free films! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The down points...

Nice enough room, friendly staff, modern decor throughout which gives it a boutique feel. It has a great bar, with a free pool table and a food menu that is sufficient enough for a 2 night stay. Close enough to the town centre to walk and very close to the train station. Parking, food and drinks are a bit expensive...

What a lovely place to stay, a great bar area, and a really lovely room, with a fabulous chair, tv shower come wet room, with lovely towels and toiletries. the only 2 faults are: pillows are filled with feathers, so flattened down straight away, and the parking is not the best, but apart from that very happy with the stay.

Stayed here for 1 night with my daughter when visiting friends in Ipswich. The hotel is central and close to railway station. The room was very good, modern, clean and fresh. The bathroom was immaculate and there was a free toiletry gift bag-lovely! The room was very quiet and we both slept well, as we were visiting friends we didn't...
