Good hotel but rooms are very hot
The hotel was good and everywhere very clean. The Penta Plus room was a good size. The little gym was a nice addition and we enjoyed breakfast. It was warm in my room when I arrived, I put on the AC to cool it down but it actually started making the room hotter. I phoned reception and they said it wasn't AC but 'air-flow' and is very temperamental and just a matter of being a waiting game to see of it worked. No fans were available on the first night, so had to sleep with the curtains open and window open (which only opens about 2 inches). It was quite noisy outside from the railway line and road but luckily I had earplugs to drown out some on the noise.

Four night stay at Penta Ipswich
We stayed four nights at Penta Hotel, Ipswich as a base for exploring the town and surrounding area. The hotel was comfortable and reasonably well located - a ten minute walk to the town centre and fifteen minute walk to the quay. The railway station is only five minutes away and it offers great and speedy links to places around Ipswich, such as Woodbridge, Manningtree and Bury St Edmunds. We would recommend the hotel for the quality of the reception staff, the varied breakfast, comfortable room and great en-suite shower.
