A new “super-budget” hotel is opening its doors in Ipswich this week – here’s a sneak peek of what customers can expect.

The former Groove nightclub in Ipswich town centre has been transformed into a 89-room easyHotel following £4million investment.

The new hotel which officially opens on Friday, January 18 will offer rooms from £14.99 – with the option for rooms with or without windows and an additional charge for the use of a TV and wifi.

Iain Goswell, Group Operations Director for easyHotel said: “Our new Ipswich hotel reflects the very best of the easyHotel experience. Affordable comfort is our unique selling point, and through our simple, no frills offer our guests in Ipswich will be able to book a relaxing night’s stay from only £14.99 per room, per night.

“The rooms are stylish and modern, with a comfortable bed for a great night’s sleep, full air conditioning, handy USB points close to the bed, black out curtains and an eco-shower. By keeping our prices very low, we enable visitors to spend more of their money in the cafes, restaurants, shops, museums and attractions which Ipswich has to offer.”
