Ideal location. Website lists ' free wifi' it is free but if you actually want internet access then you have to pay. It doesn't state this on their website. This is misleading. Parking - it dies state on theatre website that parking is limited. Yes true and the parking area is controlled by a barrier, however what they dont tell...

Was at the hotel for two nights. Lovely room, comfortable nights sleep, love the fact that there's a nice desk and chair and another lounging chair by the bed with nice retro lights for both. For these I'll visit again. Not crazy about the shower, very basic not even a power shower and water wasn't very hot. Hotel seemed a...

This hotel is a five minute taxi ride away from the town centre. The bedrooms are minimalistic but clean and with a very comfortable bed. Limited parking and an £8 charge per night. The bar is great. Lovely ambience, lots of large sofas and cushions make it a really comfortable place to relax. A free pool table and widescreen tv...

I recently booked a large group at the hotel for 2 weeks, and everyone was very impressed with the hotel. From organisers point of view, the staff couldn't be any more accommodating, everything was running super smoothly, and when there were small problems with rooms, they got resolved straight away. Juan who was looking after our group has been amazing...

Came to this pentahotel as part of my fiancés birthday. The hotel is very cool and modern, the lobby doubles up as a bar so the staff are running around quite a bit, but still manage to do a fantastic job. Bar is a bit pricey so be warned. Room is brilliant with free tv & movies, which is rarely...

Me and my fiancée stayed here for a couple of nights to get away from our usual surroundings and to see an Ipswich game. We have been to hotels on both ends of the spectrum and this felt like it was punching above it's weight for the very reasonable room rates. Free pool, free gym, free box office movies and...
