Located in Ipswich, United Kingdom, the Salthouse Harbour Hotel offers contemporary rooms with quirky furnishings, colorful decor, and local artwork featured throughout. Set on a waterfront, the building dates back to the 1800s, when it once served as a merchant’s warehouse. Original features such as arched windows and iron columns and beams remain standing today.
Rooms are spacious; some include free-standing copper baths and flat-screen televisions. Bathrooms have underfloor heating and walk-in showers for guests to enjoy as well. For a truly unique experience, guests can book one of the Sail Loft Marina rooms, complete with an open-top classic car rental to cruise around the picturesque countryside for a day.
With or without the classic car rental, travelers are welcome to explore the pier outside the Salthouse Harbour Hotel; grab some locally made ice cream or Southwold Pier fudge as you peruse the quaint shops along the sea. Head back to the hotel for dinner; The Salthouse Eaterie Restaurant has become increasingly popular with locals as well as guests since the dishes are modern and always fresh with delicacies, including Orford smoked salmon and smoked mackerel pate. Afternoon tea is also offered to guests looking for an authentic English experience.
Suffolk coastal towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold are about an hour's drive away from Salthouse Harbour Hotel.
