After two nights in Brighton at a Travelodge it was a relief to find a modern, spacious and clean hotel with a free car park! This is a new building with the reception on the first floor which is intresting as you never see it when returning to your room on the third floor because the lift misses that floor out. This is not be a problem unless you need more tea and milk and then you have to find the reception counter. We had room 309 and it was the largest room I have ever come across In a budget chain, it was almost a horseshoe shape as you could not see the bed from the door. The bathroom was very clean with a shower over the bath so no puddles on the floor and dispensers for soap and shampoo, just little things but much nicer than the afore mentioned Travelodge. A short 10 minute walk to the town centre, round the corner from the football ground and 50 yards to the newly restored quay area so not a bad position for all amenities. All in all a great place to stay !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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.
