Salt house hotel is a great night away just to relax and have a nice room and view. This was for birthday night away. We had a harbour view room and also ate in the restraunt which was lovely. Only downfall was they had run out of lobster but that just shows how popular it really is. Would really recommend...

We stayed here in April 2016 with a package deal that allowed this place to be within reach. We occupied one of the harbour-view corner rooms with windows and views on two sides. Seldom do I consider sharing a bottle of wine and hanging out in the hotel room, but this one is utterly made for it. If I could...

Hubby and I had a lovely stay in a room overlooking the marina. We booked the special 'Dinner B&B' rate. Nice size room and great bathroom with lovely big bath and nice toiletries!! Food was good. Would have been nice to have something more interesting on the veggie breakfast but all was tasty. If you are looking for quality and...

I enjoyed my stay and the food was good, we had afternoon tea, dinner in the resturant and breakfast. The only down fall is the staff, all very nice and polite but just slow, untrained and inexperienced. Whilst having afternoon tea, I wanted a glass of wine, asked for the menu but no one came back so we just left...

This hotel is right on the harbour and best to request a room with that view. Very friendly staff and good service. Restaurant doesn't have great acoustics so when very busy it is difficult to hear friends speaking. The food and service is very good.

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
