The Holiday Inn Ipswich is the perfect base for visiting unspoilt Suffolk. Lavenham and Constable country are a short distance away. Woodbridge and Felixstowe are both approx 15 minutes away and a little further up the coast, you will reach Aldbrugh/Southwold. The hotel is 1 hour from Cambridge/London, and 45 minutes from Norwich. The hotel offers full restaurant and bar facilities, Spirit Health Club onsite and ample free parking.
We found Ipswich poor but are strangerd to the area and so may not have seen the place in its best light but this was no the purpose of our visit. This was our first visit to Suffolk principally to go to Sutton Hoo which lived up to all our expectations and a beutiful place to visit. Highly reccomended on a sunny day.
Ipswich itself is unimpressive, a few streets of character, the rest like croydon. The Suffolk villages we visited were lovely and we enjoyed some great walks from a book we took with us.We chose our hotel as a base to travel around from and this was successful. We also chose it because it had a swimming pool which we used twice.
