Worse hotel I have ever stayed in. Needs a complete renovation. Bathroom had mould on tiles, loo seat was broken. Thick hairs in waste outlet therefore did not use facilities as dirty. Carpet in room did not fit, paint work looked as if it had not seen a coat of paint for decades, altogether scruffy, dirty and well overpriced for the condition of hotel. Even breakfast was very meagre.

I am only getting around to writing this review now as I have only come across the e-mails asking me for feedback when cleaning up my inbox. On this occasion, I actually got delayed reaching the hotel before the check-in time finished, but I was allowed into the reception and I spoke with Imran and he was very nice and assured me that the delay was not a problem and that my room was still available. I stayed in a single room at the front of the building overlooking the road and the room was small but certainly fine for a single person. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom, tv and tea/coffee making facilities were all in perfect working order. hey also serve a really good breakfast. My stay was for 3 nights and I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Ipswich.

The 2 staff we met were polite and friendly. I paid £44 for a basic twin but was upgraded to astandard twin (with ensuite). The furnishishings were very old worn, tired. The beds were extremely uncomfortable and pillows lumpy. I think I would go to a premier/holiday inn over Carlton purely for value for money.

For a low budget bed for one night The Carlton Hotel,an oldie world style, was excellent for us. The room was small with tea and coffee making facilities and a washbasin. It was very neat with clean, comfortable beds and bathroom next door. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Breakfast was a sumptuous hot feast, included in the price, in a nice bright room with quick, good, friendly service. I would stay there again.
