Nice hotel, awful car parking

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Pros: The reception staff, always polite and helpful.
Cons: Parking
Location: The hotel is in walking distance to the town, if you don't mind a walk .
This is a nice hotel, with friendly staff. However the beds are hard, and the rooms have wood floors, so can be noisy. The biggest problem is the car park, if you are in early you may get a spot, otherwise you have to park in a council car park, which is not in the best area, and frequented by youths at night.

Better than expected

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: The staff, facilities and breakfast
Cons: A larger car park; stock bedrooms with ordinary english breakfast tea rather than just Earl Grey.
Location: Easy to find and very convenient for the centre of Ipswich. We were there for a family river cruise on the River Orwell which is only five mins away
Having stayed at another Encore Ramada less than two weeks previously, we were pleasantly surprised by the better standards experienced at the Ipswich hotel. Little things like having air conditioning in the room and a shaver point in the bathroom made quite a difference. The staff were very friendly and the level of service at breakfast compared very favourably as did the quality and range of breakfast items. It was unfortunate that we arrived too late to fit into the very small car park but the local authority over flow car park less than five minutes away was easy to find and a simple stroll across the river back to the hotel. It actually cost less than the hotel car park too.

Within An Easy Walking Distance From Train Station

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: We were happy with our room and the hotel. We did not have any problems during our stay. Wi-Fi was free in the bar area, but not in the room.
Location: Located near the train station and the downtown district. There were banks, shops, money exchange and everything that we needed during our short stay.
The hotel was exactly as pictured on their website. The website said the hotel was ten minutes from the train station and I think it was actually less. The hotel was well-located also within easy walking to the downtown/shopping district. Banks, shops, eateries all near by. We had breakfast at the hotel the morning following our arrival. The buffet style was good and we could have ordered additional items if there was something missing that we would have liked to have. The price was good and the hotel met our needs for our one-night stay.

Good for overnight business trip

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: Very friendly staff
Cons: rooms too warm. Parking should be included.
Clean modern room, friendly and helpful staff. Parking is limited and had to pay extra but they let me keep it there all day so I saved on parking the next day as it is a short walk across the bridge to the town centre.

Nice trip.

Staff was great and very helpful. Location was excellent and near the waterfront attractions. Easy walk into the centre of Ipswich Town. Only one minor item which would make it better. Please add a small refrigerator to the room for drinks and people who have medicine which must be kept cool.

Hotel for 5 days

Posted May 18, 2014
Got a double room for 4 nights for £198. Great value, room was on second floor and was spacious and clean. My friend on the first floor complained of car noises but I guess it's inevitable. It's right next to the river so pretty great if want to go for a jog. It's about 7 minutes walk from rail station. Staff are great but they sometimes need more people at the reception, there's always a queue to check in. We also visited the gym, it's a small room with two treadmills (one broken), one bike and one lateral pull down machine and some meds ball and dumbells (1-3kg).
