Best Western Ipswich Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- It's a recently refurbished 4-star hotel on the outskirts of Ipswich
- The property is less than 10 minutes' drive from Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the heart of Constable Country
- Ipswich Waterfront, with its industrial heritage, boat trips and bars, is 15 minutes' drive away
Best Western Ipswich Hotel is in the village of Copdock, a 15-minute drive or a 35-minute Park-and-ride journey from the quayside and heritage sights of Ipswich.
You can visit Christchurch Park and Mansion and see the Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable collections in the Tudor-manor museum, or explore the 70 acres of abutting parkland. St Mary-Le-Tower church, Ipswich Museum and The Buttermarket shopping centre are all less than 10 minutes' walk from the park, and Ipswich Market is held by The Corn Exchange on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Chantry Park and its Grade II-listed House are within a 10-minute drive of the hotel, as is the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where you can visit Flatford Mill, famous for its connections with John Constable. Alternatively, spend the day feeding the animals and enjoying the butterfly house and woodland walks at Jimmy's Farm, which is 10 minutes' drive away.
National Trust site Sutton Hoo with its 7th-century royal burial grounds is a 30-minute drive from the hotel, and Frinton-on-Sea and Mersea Island are a 35-minute drive away.
The hotel has a large private garden with outdoor seating, and a restaurant and bar serving traditional English cuisine. Superior Rooms have been recently renovated and come with free Wi-Fi.
