Situated on the marina edge, approached by a somewhat confusing one-way-street system, this gem is very worthwhile seeking out - it has a car park which can be locked behind gates at night. A former quayside warehouse, it has been converted into an hotel and subsequently further enlarged to provide more accommodation - therefore the rooms are quite variable in character (ancient & modern you might say) but all are roomy and furnished, decorated and maintained to a superb standard. If you wish to pay a small supplement for a marina view you can sit and watch the world and his wife go about their maritime business and leisure. Complemented by very agreable staff, at all levels, you will be well catered for: the breakfasts and evening meals are of a high quality, nicely presented.
If there was one small criticism on the evening on my stay, it was that the thumping music was not what one would expect eminating from the canned sound system, to an audience of middle to later age groups.
- 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
