I booked a Bed, breakfast and afternoon tea package for me and my partner, for my 40th Birthday, As I had always wanted to stay here.

We had a lovely stay for my husbands birthday. Bit of a rocky start as the room i had booked was unavailable due to building works. But the staff couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating in putting things right. We had a beautiful room over looking the harbour. We also enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. Would highly recommend and would...

We went here for our first weekend away together as a couple. What an amazing hotel. The room was fantastic. We had one of the cheeper town facing rooms but it was huge. The bed was so wide and comfy that we didn't want to get up. The food was amazing. A good selection was available and it wasn't overpriced...

We stayed here over the weekend of 28/29 January to celebrate my birthday. The setting of the hotel is fantastic, with the view of the boats in the harbour. The boutique style interiors are quirky and fun and the hotel rooms clean, comfortable and individually decorated. We were given room 106 - a magnificent light and bright room with views...

This hotel is very well located, with excellent spacious rooms. The staff at reception and restaurant are great. However, the prices policy in the restaurant is not so good. I ordered a dish which price was £13, but I was charged £26. They automatically charged for the "complimentary" snack and service an amount equivalent to the price of my dish.

Many thanks for your comment and I think there has been a confusion on the bill as our service charge does not exceed 10% on any item in the restaurant. Best wishes

wife and I have been to Ipswich marina a few times and always liked the look of the Salthouse. We booked a deal for DBB with a room with a balcony overlooking the marina for £220 which is available for Friday and Sunday nights. What a treat this turned out to be. We were greeted in the adjacent carpark and...

We stayed at the Salthouse on the 28th/29th January for my 65 birthday with our close friends and the hotel was just as advertised if not better. Fantastic hotel, the staff were extremely friendly.

The views are amazing but the window a bit too smallll! I think in this location it would be nice if you can enjoy the view through the glass wall/window from your bed! But overall its an awesome place to stay.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and again this visit was absolutely superb. The rooms are beautiful no two are the same and spotlessly clean, exceptional food and super service. I can't praise this place enough, I wish I could visit more often.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This artfully designed boutique Hotel and Restaurant in Suffolk reflects luxury and dazzles in the waterfront of Ipswich's vibrant Harbour quayside at night. The Salthouse Harbour Hotel goes beyond what you expect and exudes its 4 star status in every curious corner, eccentric sofa and unstuffy cushion. The sea-salted brickwork exterior has been restored & rejuvenated into a ship shape contemporary warehouse of rich modern interiors and rooms adorned with vintage furniture, sculptures and eclectic art. Within its comfy chic decor, although the mood is friendly and relaxed, the staff are professionally attentive to your every need. The cuisine is exciting and the popularity of the Salthouse Eaterie fills this delightful waterfront restaurant as soon as the tables are laid. ... more   less
