Best Western Ipswich Hotel is set snuggly in its quiet countryside surroundings, but we're also just a stone's throw from the A12 and A14, meaning easy access to all major routes (and just far enough away from the hassle of parking in town). All of our bedrooms are furnished to a high and impressive standard, whilst our restaurant serves up stunning views overlooking the well groomed lawns. Join us to eat, sleep and meet all under one roof.

Dining and Bars

Meet Darren our head chef, born in Cambridge and trained in one of the local colleges. Darren is proud to have put some of his team through the same education and training he received in the area. He also got engaged and married at the hotel! Darren has been part of the team for over 13 years, bringing a wealth of experience. His motto is 'the closer it is the more you can keep an eye on it'. This philosophy has been brought to the kitchen to ensure that a large amount of our products are purchased locally from private independent producers.
