Pentahotel Ipswich reopens after £2m refurbishment

Pentahotel's 126-bedroom property in Ipswich has reopened following a £2m refurbishment.

The German hotel group, owned by the Rosewood Hotel Group, which also operates Rosewood Hotels and New World Hotels, has invested £10m into opening and refurbishing six Pentahotels in the UK over the past two years. The group has 27 hotels across seven countries worldwide, and plans to announce the opening of more hotels in the UK soon.

The hotel's interior design focuses around an open-plan Pentalounge, which is a relaxed, vintage-style space with leather sofas, a pinball machine, billiard table and Playstation console. Guests check in at a combined reception-bar within the Pentalounge.

Rooms come equipped with Diesel robes, towels and bedding, hairdryers, toiletry sets from Anatomicals and free on-demand pay-TV, which includes multiple sports channels.

Alastair Thomann, global managing director of Pentahotels, said: "Our UK hotels will be the first from our global portfolio to have newly refurbished rooms throughout. We chose Ipswich as a location since it has buoyant business, tech and innovation communities and we see it as an up and coming town with strong international links. Although we have hotels in cities such as Vienna, Beijing and Paris we also choose mid-size towns, which we see as perfect for our growth strategy."
