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.

40th birthday treat

The hotel is beautifully designed, the rooms are spacious and the bathrooms were clean with a nice size bath. We were very impressed. However we had no USB ports to charge our phones which was disappointing. We were room 101 on the corner so you could hear the wind howling round the side, and who ever was above us sounded like they were a herd of elephants, both noises were not due to the hotel however we didnt get a very good night sleep because of this.
Breakfast was ok, service was slow we waited 20mins just for our coffee, the choice was good with cooked and continental if you wanted it. Car parking was good they took the car and parked it for you and reception was very polite and helpful.

Visit to Ipswich

Very good location and we had Room 408 overlooking the harbour, massive room, bathroom had bath and stand alone shower.
Breakfast on both days was excellent and the tea was the best I've had in a hotel!

great hotel in lovely surrounding

I had a wonderful time in the Salthouse Harbour hotel, located directly at the marina in Ipswich, city centre and station in walking distance (each about 10 min), the rooms are spacious and well-furnished, very comfortable bed with different cushions to choose, facilities to make tea / coffee, big bathroom, very modern, everything is spotless clean,
all employees are very friendly, helpful and professional (thanks again for the adapter for british plugs),
the restaurant serves wonderful food, breakfast was excellent, too,
altogether absolutely fabulous,
I would always book it again!
