Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The quirky designer retreat of Salthouse Harbour Hotel lies on the banks of Ipswich’s Neptune Quay. Located in an old merchant’s warehouse, which dates back to the 1800s, it had a stylish revamp in 2003. Step into the lobby, which welcomes you with a glass mural by Bristol-based artist SPQR - plus lime-tinted mood lighting and citrus leather chesterfields. The AA-rosette awarded Eaterie restaurant surrounds you with paintings and sculptures, whilst an impressive wine list awaits - with over thirty wines to choose from. The menu boasts many local delicacies; in the summer, ask for a table in front of the harbour for a real dining treat.

Rooms and suites have modern, quirky interiors, plus free Wi-fi - and complimentary luxury biscuits to also give guests that home-from-home experience. Upgraded rooms have far-reaching marina views, and feature works of art. Upgrade to the Penthouse Suite for panoramic views of the harbour (it even has its own telescope), and wind down in the roll-top bathtub for ultimate luxury.

Take a stroll into Ipswich town centre, which is five minutes on foot, and caters for every shopping addict’s needs. If you’re into culture, discover Suffolk’s history at The John Russell Gallery, which stands on the waterfront – or visit Christchurch Mansion to view a huge collection of Suffolk art. The New Wolsey Theatre and the Regent Theatre are also close by, and host a variety of top class entertainment. However, no visit to Ipswich is complete without a stroll along the water’s edge, and watching the yachts sail in and out of the harbour.
