Historical Traveller Reviews of Salthouse Harbour Hotel
Very stylish and comfy but a little noisyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The car park was full though so it was a bit tricky having to find a space although the reception did offer to hold on to my car keys & move the car if I wanted to block someone in.
Check in was efficient & the room was on the top floor with a side view of the marina & was also quiet as it was a long way from the street. The decor was lovely & modern with a large bed that was very comfortable. The bathroom had both a bath & separate shower which was nice & both worked fine. The taps were modern which meant it took a little time working out how to change the temperature. The room lighting was bright enough & easily controlled as was the air conditioning.
It was very clean & with high quality refreshments (tea/coffee/biscuits/bottled water).
Breakfast was served by polite & friendly staff & was excellent quality with enough choice for different tastes. The staff throughout, & at every contact, seemed well-trained & went out of their way to help with any query.
I wouldn't hestitate to both recommend to others & stay at this hotel again in the future with the only downside being the parking space.
Disappointing - too many hidden extrasfrom WAFC
Very nice looking hotel in a good location by Ipswich harbour which has been converted from an old warehouse (so has a Loft-type feel). At first glance it looks well converted but they have gone cheap in a number of areas so already looking tired (carpets dirty & stained, tiles in the bathroom loose & dirty, shower does not drain well so overflows).
They have considered some nice touches (e.g. DVD player in SOME - but not all - rooms) but have forgotten many essentials (no air conditioning or fans in the room so it can get VERY hot. If you leave the window open then you get a lot of noise from the local bar and the hotel terrace.
Unfortunately I doubt the hotel's honesty & integrity, especially as there are too many extras ... if you want vegetables with your main meal ... EXTRA to the meal price, if you want room service ... EXTRA to the meal price, if you want a quiet room ... EXTRA. In my second week they had put the price of the room up by £26 per night too.
Service was OK and it was good that they took my meal back when it was not cooked how I ordered it. I am not sure how organized they are either. For example, I booked a non-smoking room but was allocated a smoking room.
Like their sister hotel (the Angel in Bury St Edmunds) the car parking is a nightmare and there is limited other parking in the area.
Would I stay there again ? Almost certainly NOT as I think there are better hotels in the area that offer better value.
On the positive side though, the Salthouse Harbour is far superior to the Angel Hotel, so there is progress.
Distinctive Modern Hotel with Marina Viewfrom Richard_SW11
The car park is too small so they have to resort to double parking. This did not cause us any problems, but might if you need a quick early gettaway.
For dinner we had an excellent seafood meal at Loch Fyne Restaurant (formerly Mortimers), 5 minutes stroll away at 1 Duke Street. ----

Salthouse a winner!from A TripAdvisor Member
Quayside Delightfrom amijane
The staff were polite and helpfull, the breakfast was very tasty and well presented. There is no extra charge for having it brought to the room. Great to have breakfast in bed!!
The hotel was spotlessly clean and presented in a contemporary style with some lovely art work. The staircase and corridors reminded me of a cruise ship, small reception area, pleasant bar and restaurant and gorgeous lounge room.
The hotel room I had was at the front of the building overlooking the marina and benefitted from a balcony. The room was decorated in creams, khaki and browns, comfortable bed with ornate wooden headboard, good sized wardrobe space, hairdryer, trouser press, tea/coffee making facilities, large television, lots of lamps,writing desk and two chairs.
The bathroom was clean with fully tiled walls and floor, incorporating a good sized bath and seperate shower cubicle, one wash hand basin,trendy spiral towel warmer, fluffy towels and the latest design taps. ( However I found it difficult to get the temperature right.)
The only downside in my opinion is that the bedroom and bathroom were on the small side and the toiletries provided were an economical brand.
I would definitely use this hotel again and highly recommend it.

one way We found the hotel difficult to find the first time. There is a one way system in Ipswich which makes it quite difficult. Now we use sat nav and have no problems.
