About Hotel Carlton

The Hotel Carlton Hotel offers competitively priced bed and breakfast accommodation near the centre of Ipswich.

Rooms at the Hotel Carlton range from en-suite to standard with shared bathroom and toilet facilities.  They are comfortably furnished with colour television, beverage making facilities and free Wi-Fi.

Limited free parking is available and from the hotel, there is easy access to the town’s medieval centre, historic features and cultural and entertainment venues and to the area’s attractive countryside and coastal villages.

Breakfast is conveniently timed to cater for business people and tourists keen to make an early start.  Later, restaurant choices are to be found in Ipswich itself, although many guests race to the nearby Greyhound Inn for drinks and reasonably priced bar meals.

The location remains a prime feature; with the Christchurch Park and Mansion, Suffolk College and the town’s football stadium, all within easy walking distance.

Positive Reviews

Superb breakfast.

Spot on! Breakfast is really impressive. Mid-week, it’s served until 8.30 am, which may be a bit early for some. It is, though, included in the tariff so not a extra cost and well worth getting out of bed for.

Really friendly owners.

Very welcoming and keen to help with any queries. Can’t be faulted.


If you expect the ultimate in luxury and amenities, keep looking! For a friendly welcome and a clean bedroom, this place certainly delivers.

Negative Reviews

Not in good nick.

Lashings of TLC are needed here, PDQ! Beds are old and uncomfortable and furnishings and décor dated. The standards of housekeeping and laundry are also questionable.

Hot water. No pressure, then.

There is a water pressure problem, particularly at busy times. Guests do, though, tend to get up at round about the same time, so this problem should have been sorted ages ago. Is the public/communal toilet cleaned regularly? Think not!

Saving the bacon.

The breakfast menu lacks any proper sausage or bacon.
