A boutique waterfront hotel with a blend of quirky and traditional styles, set in the charming city of Ipswich

The Lowdown

The four-star Salthouse Harbour Hotel is a swanky designer retreat with an award-winning restaurant and a playful attitude. Located in a historic building on the banks of Neptune Quay in Ipswich, this red-brick gem has been given a serious revamp with Vivienne Westwood rugs, Damien Hirst posters and suits of armour wearing strings of pearls. Bedrooms are just as stylish, with unique features and thoughtful comforts.
The Eaterie Restaurant has become something of a foodie draw, thanks to a fabulous menu of local delicacies, impressive wine list, cosy atmosphere and waterside setting. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available as well as a delectable Sunday lunch and afternoon tea. Add the easy walking distance to the town centre, proximity to the Suffolk coast and the views across a harbour filled with luxury yachts and the Salthouse Harbour Hotel makes for the perfect setting for a decadent weekend away.

Excellent dining to celebrate a birthday
Reviewed 3 hours ago

We dined last night, table of four, to celebrate a birthday. From start to finish we were looked after fabulously. The food and wine were excellent. The pace of the meal was good too. We all had different meal choices but all nothing but praise for our choices. Would certainly return.

Fabulous Weekend
Reviewed 19 hours ago

Always have a lovely, relaxing, and special time at this hotel. Stayed in a marina facing room which was particularly enjoyable as the maritime festival was taking place and we had a great view of the fireworks and could soak up the atmosphere. Staff are lovely, low key but very helpful and there when required. Breakfast in your room is a great way to start the day and the cooked breakfast delicious. We will return very soon.

Our second stay,as good as the first!!

We have stayed here before and we wasn’t disappointed on our second visit.Tgis was the maritime weekend and was really busy.
The guy with the blond hair and glasses that was dealing with the car park and moving the cars about had a fantastic attitude and his customer service was second to none!!!!
The room was clean and tidy,dolly mixtures on the bed and slippers are a nice touch.
Lovely view from the balcony.
The restaurant service was great,as was the food.
We will be back.

Unimpressed - dirty.

Stayed at the Salthouse Harbour hotel whilst in Suffolk, had many a good meal there in the past and expected the stay to be as pleasant. Room cost £160.00 night, not their most expensive but hardly cheap. The bathroom was dirty with visible/scrapable brown gunge on the floor - probably a result of the blocked shower tray and water over flowing but clearly not cleaned and had accumilated over some time, doubly disgusting as this was right next to the toilet. Room was bland, boring and unispiring, again I wouldnt describe it as clean, not helped by the multi stained curtains. Very disapppointing. Their tag is 'curiosity' there's nothing curious about this particular room - hopefully others are better but I wont be spending my money finding out.

Excellent location right on the marina.
VIP rooms have great views across the marina. Beautifully decorated boutique style hotel.
Free car park is tight to park but the staff will move your car for you if you want.
Restaurant has some good voices and the set meals are excellent valuea.
Only downside was the restaurant was very noisy due to hard flooring echoing the guests and making it much louder.
