The "innovative and engaging" (The Daily Telegraph) pentahotel Ipswich provides a stylish stay just outside the centre of Ipswich. The hotel occupies a contemporary property with a brick-and-wood façade, set on a bustling street between a leafy park and the banks of the River Orwell. Ipswich Town Football Club is a 10-minute walk away, while the centre of Ipswich and its trendy marina, packed with bars and restaurants, are both 15 minutes' walk from the hotel. Colchester, with its Roman walls and medieval castle, is a 30-minute drive away, while the Dedham Vale Are of Outstanding Natural Beauty -- made famous in the paintings of John Constable, and often known as Constable country -- is around 15 minutes' drive from the hotel.
In the hotel's moodily lit lobby lounge, a trendy bare brick finish and industrial-inspired lighting offset polished wood floors, leather seating and bookshelves. The "agreeably lived-in" (The Daily Telegraph) lounge offers a bar hung with mirror balls, a billiards table and a games console, as well as restaurant serving hearty fare. Other amenities include a fitness room, a furnished terrace and vending machines on each floor.
Rooms have a simple but stylish design, with a neutral colour palette and retro accents. All rooms have free Wi-Fi, a TV, and tea- and coffee-making facilities, plus a bathroom with a rainfall shower. Higher room categories add more space and air conditioning, while top-of-the-range accommodations come with classic arcade games and games consoles. Room service is available 24 hours a day.
