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.

I visited the salt house restaurant last night for the second time, even though the service was not 100% they did make sure that they asked if anyone had an allegory which they then notified the chef about, the food was incredible as usual. I started the meal with a gluten free

Back to my home town for my 50th birthday and this stay was nothing short of 5 star! Welcomed and looked after well by the staff (don't be fooled by the youth, they know what they're doing and do it well). A lovely comfortable room and bed, good facilities and enjoyed the decor.

Wow. The Salthouse Harbour Hotel has been an absolute treat. We got sort of stranded here, arriving on X mas eve with a flat tyre. Staff is very welcoming and attentive: bam 10 points. The hotel interior has a quirky Drew Pritchard look and feel to it: bam 10 points. The

How far is the walk to the spa?
Hi, It’s approx a four minute walk and very easy to find. Do be fooled by what the front looks like as it’s like a tardis. The girls and treatments are second to none. Enjoy and have a fab time as we did. Faultless

Hi there, Thank you for your request. Our Sail Loft Rooms are town facing and do not have a juliette balcony. We have a number of these rooms on each floor (1st - 5th floor.) If you are looking for a Juliette balcony, we have our Sail Loft Marina Rooms which also have stunning views of the marina. Please let us know if we can be of any further help. Kind Regards, Reservations

"Room 509 is large & has a great view"
"The rooms in the newer part with huge beds are wonderfula dn contemporary"
"I have no evidence, but feel the rooms at the front could be noisy especially at weekends."
"there are 2 lifts, if you are on the top floor, use the lift next to the toilets, not the one in reception"
"Marina view with balcony!"
