I stayed at the Hotel on a business trip.

Location:
Excellent - Very close to town centre and the waterfront, , very peaceful, good restaurants nearby to try out, quite close to the station.

Buffet Breakfast:
Big and spacious area, wide ranges of choices to sit (I especially liked the single seaters with personal TV screen, felt just like business class), good food, wide choices of food, cery friendly staff who take good care of you while you are eating.

Staff: Very friendly and helpful. I think few were not very fluent in English and we had a bit of problem understanding them. Also few of them had some trouble operating the computers when I asked for any specific information and would ask for help from a senior staff. But all in all they are always ready to help you and are very friendly and polite.

Room:
The Good: I stayed in the executive room which was one of the best room available in the Hotel. It was very spacious and well equipped - espresso machine, bathrobe, Bose iPod dock, Free Internet, unlimited choices on TV, big and spacious bathrooms that are extremely well designed.
The Bad: Rooms had tiny little windows from which hardly any sunlight came in. If you are looking for a hotel with big windows and good view, this is definitely not the place to stay.

Overall:
Very well located, well equipped hotel where the staff is always eager to serve and help you. If only the room windows could have been a little bigger with the price you pay to stay here.

I had a 1 night stay in Ipswich Novotel and all in all it was a perfectly pleasent stay.

Pros:

Good location, easy to find and lots of local food and drink outlets within walking/stumbling distance.
On site parking, however this is £6 for 24 hours so factor that in when booking
Big room, with everything you would need for a nights stay.

Cons:

£2.50 for a can of coke in the mini bar!! luckily as previously stated there are plenty of places in walking distance to stock up on food and drink.

Value for money?

My company paid for it so yes! however at £63 + £6 parking, for a night its pretty reasonable

Would I stay there again?

Yup without hesitation

We only stayed one night opn a room only basis for £45. I though this was good value. Check in was quick and we were given a "superior" room. I think superior means a very "mini" mini bar. The room was a good size, however we did find it strange that the toilet was separate from the bathroom. The bathroom was very nicely finished, the toilet felt like a public toilet!
The bed was large and comfy, the flat screen tv had a lead to plug into your ipod. Mini bar had a couple of cans of coke (£2.50) bottle of water (£2.50) and two cans of lager (£3.50.) So average overpricing like most hotels!
The staff were friendly as we came and went from the hotel, there was a bar area which all looks very nice although we didn't use it. Slight bug bear - there is a smallish car park and you have to pay £6 a night parking. Overall, this was a good and reasonable stay for our night out in Ipswich (location is one minute from Cardinal Park - cinema and restaurants) and about 2 mins from the town centre.

Room Tip: Would suggest a higher room as there could be a little noise from outside, but nothing too distracti...
