Didn't use this hotel, but did use the public electric car charging point. When those vultures called ParkingEye wanted to fine me £100 for parking illegally (whilst charging my car!!), and after my direct appeal was unsuccessful, I called this hotel and Susan provided a fantastic prompt service and ensured my fine was cancelled. Thank you Susan for resolving an unnecessarily stressful situation for me - very much appreciated.

I had stayed in different Novotel hotels before and not have any issue with cleanliness but until I got into my room at Novotel Ipswich Centre, it seemed like no one have stay in that room for a long while or the housekeeping had not done a upto standard job. Hair on the bathroom wall and floor, dust around the ventilation valve above the toilet, black dots and dust on the beddings and bath towels. When I read the letter which the receptionist handed to me during check-in, I noticed one line `During your stay we will only be serving your rooms on request this can be arranged at reception the evening before.' So if you only stay one night that you will have to arrange your room to be serviced the evening before you check in or else will get a room like what I got ???

I’ve stayed here a few times and keep coming back because the staff make it. I have to pay credit to Carla, Monica, Ben, Susan, Shaun and others who all make the stay feel very warm. The manager is often around checking things so he clearly runs the place well. Rooms are clean and comfortable so I love going back. My only complaint is that the bedroom doors slam shut so if you’re a light sleeper you can be woken early. Parking is £6 a night but it is in a prime spot so not surprising. Thanks for looking after me.

Excellent check in, nice hotel but bath needs better cleaning, very grubby and tiles old and in need of replacing. Evening meal ok and breakfast very good with something for everyone. Tables well spaced Thank you Novotel. Good experience.

Stayed for one night to attend wedding nearby. Always liked the layout of a Novotel with separate toilet/bathroom and bath and shower. Room did not disappoint. Very comfortable and clean. Reception staff were great and efficient, organised taxi upon request. Shout out to member of reception that even accompanied me to the taxi with an umbrella in the pouring rain. It was greatly appreciated.
