Value
From an ideal location on Ranelagh Road, pentahotel Ipswich really is the perfect base for a relaxing stay, business meeting or conference as well as being a great launch pad for exploring loads of many local attractions or historic nearby towns like Colchester or Felixstowe. We're just five minutes on foot from Ipswich's central rail station, Ipswich Town Football Club and Ipswich Town Centre as well as the award-winning Water Front Marina and its busy bars and restaurants being close by too.

Definitely a hotel to revisit when visiting Ipswich again. Helpful and friendly staff. Room was spacious and bed very comfortable. Ambience of the public area and restaurant was very relaxing and comfortable. I stayed on my own and it was like home from home.
