Watch the world drift by at the Premier Inn Hotel Ipswich Town Centre (Quayside). Just opposite the quayside, you'll be in a great spot for messing about on the river, wandering around town, or visiting the region's businesses. You could take a cruise along the River Orwell, or find buried treasure at the awe-inspiring Sutton Hoo. You could feed the animals at Jimmy's Farm, or step out and explore the city's vibrant bars and restaurants. Then, after a movie at Cardinal's Park, stroll back to our tasty restaurant and extra-comfy beds.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Room 309 window to left of TV doesn't seal when closed,which means you hear traffic noise all through the night and bus depot first thing in morning,also TV in room 310 is directly behind your head when in bed so if you have an inconsiderate neighbour who does late night TV viewing till 2 am can be very annoying

Hotel's Favourite
We went out for birthday drinks in the town, the hotel is very well situated in close proximity to the town centre and the water front. We had pre booked our room, however the people in front of us didn’t and we were waiting awhile to check in, perhaps a self check in system would work. Room was basic and clean, this suited us as we only needed a bed for the night. We decided to have breakfast in the morning, the two ladies that served us Tay & Maisie were friendly, informative and very polite, the breakfast was cooked fresh and one of the best cooked breakfasts I’ve had in a long time. Tay & Maisie’s customer service was excellent, they were on hand for anything you needed and very attentive.

We spent two nights at the Quayside premier inn and to be honest it was spoilt because our room 415 was very warm we opened the window the two inches that it allowed but still hot,the air conditioning was doing nothing mainly because it was not switched on and when we asked about it we were told it was tempremental.Also the quayside does not really have much going on.

Lovely to be by the quayside! Room: clean & comfortable. Shower & bed - very nice. Couldn’t control the room temperature very well so was a bit hot. I could have contacted reception but couldn’t spare the time to get it sorted. No bar which was disappointing. Fun fact: easy to get Deliveroo delivered after restaurant shuts.

We stayed in an accessible room due to my husband being in a wheelchair. The room was perfect with enough room to manoeuvre around, plenty of space near the bed. Doors were wider and we notice emergency pull cords if we needed them. The bathroom was great too, we went for the room with a bath which was low as stated with grab rails all over the bathroom. It was easy for my husband to get in and out the bath and use the facilities. We slept rather well and really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely stay again in fact we are already booked to go back in September. Highly recommended for wheelchair users.

Arrived late due to traffic and need to get checked in quickly to get the theatre. Receptionist saw us come in but prioritised gentleman looking for a table for dinner. After a 10 minute wait got checked in, dumped bags and got straight out again. Got back late, noticed room smelled of dog, woke in the morning to find only 1 set of towels even though booked for 2 people. Had to double up with towels - no sign in room of who to call (note for room service under menu when informed by night clerk to look on the desk). Informed staff at breakfast who comped breakfast as apology - but not the point. Should not have had t share towels in the first place.

Situated near the Quay, which in itself seems to be in a run down part of the town. Usual Premier Inn room, but that's where it stops. The bar/restaurant is extremely small. They only had a very limited (microwaveable I'm guessing) menu, as they didn't have a chef on. This brings me to breakfast. One of things I like about Premier Inn is their breakfast. Not so in this case. The choice wasn't very good, a frantic experience trying to get undercooked sausages and barely cooked bacon. All in all, not a nice stay at all. Cannot fault the staff though, as they seem to be overworked, and probably under-appreciated.

What sets this Premier Inn apart from other is consistently the high level of customer service, lovely friendly helpful people work here, all of the treat and especially Jack who sets the bar high. As a love traveller I really appreciate the kindness.

Ok for an overnight stay but nothing special and I certainly wouldn’t bring family here. Breakfast is in a small cozy area and was plentiful. However, their prices have rocketed up and premier inns are no longer the bargains they once were. There is better value for money around.
