Salthouse Harbour Hotel
Ranked #1 of 18 Hotels in Ipswich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 January 2011

Been to Ipswich before but the Salthouse Hotel is a real gem! Located in the harbour / marina the view is amazing; the staff are amazingly kind and attentive. We had dinner at the Eaterie restaurant; something not to be missed! Originally a warehouse the hotel is decorated with a lot of taste; a mix of urban, vintage chic and African influences. The rooms are roomy and beautifully decorated including a walk-in shower, plasma TV, free WIFI, a coffee machine and plenty of space. Would go back again anytime!!

Id like to start by saying this was a beautiful and artistic hotel, both inside and out.
The free parking was apreciated too.
We stayed in the loft marina room, which has a fabulous copper bath over looking the balcony to the harbour. Worth mentioning if you want the bath on booking, as they will be popular.
The room had great features such as ipod docking station, modern wide screen tv with freeview, free internet, rain effect shower and bathrobes.

Big pros-
-Great staff, friendly and helpful. Polite and well presented.
-Very clean
-Quite rooms
-Beautiful decor throughout the hotel
-Lovely food

Small cons-
-The 'king size bed' was twin beds pushed together. One of my pet hates. The ridges are annoying and uncomfortable.
-Although it had been made a note of on booking, my partners birthday had not been acknowledged. There was no note in the room, nor a complimentary drink given. Most hotels of this standard do this as a good will gesture. Especially at the cost!
-Not quite got the 5 star feel, but certainly the 5 star price. I have stayed better hotels for quite a bit less around the country and the world.

All in all a romantic and relaxing stay.
Probably the best place to stay if you ever find your self in ipswich.

We didn't really know what to expect when we arrived at the Ipswich Docks but were totally happy with every aspect of our stay! Alot of thought has gone into making the hotel a fun modern destination and I will be going back!!

Loved this hotel. Quirky artwork, well thought out rooms. The bath in the bedroom overlooking the harbour was just splendid. Staff very friendly and professional.
Only downside is the dining room. Again adorned with great artwork but It is filled with the noise of scraping chairs across wooden floors which reminded me of my schooldays. (Guys - perhaps buy some rubber feet for the chairs)
The evening meal, although I enjoyed the meal, was overpriced (not of the standard you would expect for those prices).
There is a fantastic fish restaurant (Loch Fyne) around the corner which serves delicious food in an equally trendy place for more realistic prices.
That said. The hotel is wonderful. Stay, but not for dinner.
