I have previously given this place a 5/5. However, this time I was exceptionally disappointed. I lost my phones and possessions in the taxi on the way and had asked if I could call the police or taxi company in order to retrieve it. I was told I had to do so from my room. This is fine, but I... More

Really liked the quirky decor and accessories in the room, so much more inviting than standard chain hotels. Home comforts including a large comfortable settee and Emma Bridgewater mugs and well stocked with tea, water and biscuits. Couldn't fault it

I was visiting friends in the area and opted to stay at the Salthouse harbour. I had a really good stay. I arrived mid afternoon and received a warm welcome and a valet parking service. After a long journey was famished so tried to get a table in the packed restaurant, although they couldnt accomodate me at that time, they... More

Beautiful ,clean ,well maintained, friendly staff, what more can I say? Hotel room was chic, modern and the view from our front facing balcony was beautiful. The hotel has obviously taken on board past reviews as we were served within minutes when we went down to the foyer for an evening drink. We stayed for three nights for my husbands... More

Had a wonderful days at this lovely hotel, right on the harbour front. The design and decor are modern and quirky in a good way. The service and food were both excellent, which was also good. One great attraction for us is that it allows dogs to stay. Our room was spacious and well equipped and nothing was too much... More

Visited Ipswich for a couple of nights. I wasn't particularly impressed with the town but this hotel is an absolute gem. We had a front facing room which had a balcony overlooking the marina. With the sun shining it was like looking out over boats in the Med. There are also several excellent restaurants on the marina. The hotel retains... More

Loved the location of this hotel, our first time staying here. We had a lovely room overlooking the marina, however slightly spoiled by an overwhelming smell of paint, so much so that my husband (who can normally sleep anywhere) had problems sleeping even though we had the windows open to try to dissipate the odour. One plus though, I loved... More

Stayed at hotel on wednesday just before Easter 15 - excellent location. Booked a room at the front of hotel for a small extra charge but well worth waking up to sun shining into the room and a view over a sunny waterside.

Stayed from Good Friday to Easter Sunday. When I booked I mentioned that our stay was a treat for our tenth anniversary and when we arrived we had been given a complimentary upgrade(and sweets!) to a Sail Loft Marina room overlooking the Harbour which was greatly appreciated and made our stay all the more special. The room was beautifully decorated... More
