Visited the restaurant on a quiet midweek night. I've eaten here a few times before so was impressed at the usual high standard of the menu with some great choices. However this is really as good as it got.The service wasn't great and I had to wait a long time for drinks each time I ordered one and it was... More

Delicious breakfasts which were beautifully presented. All the staff were keen to help and very polite. Spent 2 nights on a midweek break in Suffolk and the hotel provided everything we wanted.

We stayed only one night in this wonderful hotel but had a penthouse suite which was magnificent. Superb view over the harbour and very well appointed room and bathroom. We happened to arrive on the day of the maritime festival so very much enjoyed all the activity on the harbour in the afternoon, then the fireworks in the evening. Very... More

This hotel provided an excellent base from which to explore Suffolk. It has a great location on Neptune Quay with plenty of bars nearby and the town centre within an easy walk. The hotel itself is fitted out to a high (if somewhat quirky) standard and our bedroom (no. 402) was spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped. We... More

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 Suffolk 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 its popularity fills this delightful waterfront eatery as soon as the tables are laid. ... more   less
