I stayed at the Carlton Hotel for a night whilst I was in Ipswich. I could not be more pleased with the experience provided by there staff. The room was as described in fact it was newly refurbished and served it purpose. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Although its a bit snug in the rear car park, there is plenty of parking in the front. Imran on reception was charming and very helpful. He gave us room 7, a twin bed, newly refurbished room on the 1st floor at the front of the hotel. The room & en suite were very very clean and comfortable for our...

Superb little hotel in a very quiet street very close to Ipswich town centre. Excellent friendly staff who were very helpful. This is an ideal place to stay if you are on business and need a good nights sleep. I would definitely stay again.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by a very friendly and knowledgeable member of staff, who delivered a very smooth check in. Great sized room,nice double bed and peaceful. After a good night's sleep, I was met by the breakfast ladies in the dining room, who were again very pleasant and friendly! A superb range of cereals, fruit and yogurt are...

Easy to find, town centre in walking distance and parking at the hotel. Very friendly staff and you get a breakfast in the price. Walking is a must in this town as they have plenty for all including the children.

This was my 2nd time visiting Ipswich and I did not want to fork out too much for a cosy hotel (stayed at the hip Pentahotel before) so decided to try this hotel instead. It's quite good -- you get what you pay for. The person at the reception helped carry my bags upstairs to my room. The bathroom was...

Having read some of the reviews on here I kind of didn't know what to expect. However I found the place ok, there was parking. The hotel itself looked dated and there was some obvious refurbishment going on, but I got upgraded from a single en suite to a double which was great. The room itself was clean and tidy...

Have stayed in several hotels in my time and this is by far and away the worst ever I have visited. Everything from the parking to the accommodation, firstly if you want to park at the back of the premises, do not arrive on anything wider than a pushbike or else you might struggle. To the room, what can I...
