We stayed in the hotel overnight for our 45th wedding anniversary. We have been to Ipswich by boat but not by road - we are sailors so chose one of the superior rooms overlooking the marina. The views are stunning, and the room is beautiful and luxurious, with a huge and comfortable bed and quirky bits of decor. I loved... More

Anyone wanting to know how a modern hotel should be run would be well advised to visit the Salthouse - attractive rooms, large and comfortable beds, and fabulous bathrooms, plus great service. I will treasure the memory of sipping our complimentary welcome drinks (champagne!) looking out over the marina enjoying the view from our room (see picture).

Our 3rd time at this hotel. Rooms are boutique style and this time we had a sail loft room which had a free standing bath and walk in shower. Def worth the extra. Restaurant food is superb. Only downside is the reception /lounge area is chilly in the Winter and not very cosy so eating very early in the restaurant... More

Excellent hotel - I have reviewed Salthouse before but I think the consistency of such a high level of service and accommodation merits a further mention! This stay was in a corner twin room for two nights with lovely harbour views from three picture windows. Breakfasts all superb and lovely to see the hotel all decorated in true quirky style... More

Very little to add to my previous review - this is just a fabulous hotel. The staff are unfailingly cheerful and helpful; the rooms are clean, bright and full of character; the restaurant and bar are great. This time I received a complimentary upgrade to one of the rooms with a copper bath - just fabulous. I will be back!

Really well located hotel, right next to the Harbour, walking distance to town centre. Very attentive staff and great rooms. Can#t fault it... well the fried bread was very oily, but I can put up with that as the only fault.

I stayed overnight for business. I was given a complimentary upgrade to my room and ended up in Room 209 which was absolutely fabulous. It felt very luxurious and I felt compelled to take a bath in the huge metal victorian bath that sits proudly in the main bedroom! The windows overlooked the harbour, the electronically controlled mood lighting was... More

Spent another couple of days at the hotel, and again, not disappointed. The hotel staff are great, especially in the restaurant , where nothing is to much trouble..

My husband and I stayed at The Salthouse last weekend. It is really nice hotel with such friendly helpful staff and we had a lovely room overlooking the marina. We booked dinner in the rstaurant which again was very nice with helpful staff. We will definitely stay here again.

Regularly stay at the Salthouse hotel during the week for business. Staff are always courteous and helpful. The rooms are generally spacious with good showers, some have large baths as well. All the rooms are well maintained. Decor round the reception is stylish and the bar is a relaxing venue for a drink.
