There are not many options near Harwich Port, this is near, the room is clean and large but there are lots of stairs, it sits above a bar and is in a rather old, run down neighborhood. There are few restaurant choices within walking distance. There is breakfast (extra) which we did not use as it with its folding chairs... More

The guest house in located close to Dovercourt Train Station. Several bus routes pass by the guest house. Entry is up single flight of stares. Polite, friendly and helpful owners. My room was large and clean. However, my television did not seem to be properly tuned in. My bed was comfortable and I enjoyed an invigorating shower during the course... More

I'm sitting in bed at 1220am writing this review unable to sleep. I suspect the bar which forms part of the guesthouse closes at midnight however the patrons linger and continue their conversations and singing. We've been woken constantly by the noise and swearing from the bar all night long, additionally the guesthouse is on High St which is busy... More

Ric, you are obviously very angry after suffering a noisy evening at the Goodlife. I do try to keep the noise to a minimum at the wine bar but sometimes especially Fri / Sat nights noise does drift up to the front rooms. This autumn I intend to fit heavy drape curtains to these bedrooms in a hope to cure... More

We have booked this by internet (Booking.com) because of the rating of other guests. By arriving we had our thoughts if we had booked the right one but once inside it was amazing how much we got for just a penny. You have to find your way the first time, just go to the winebar, down below and after registration... More

We have just spent a night at the Goodlife and it was excellent. We were a bit apprehensive when we got to the entrance and climbed the flight of stairs but were really pleased with the accommodation. We were in room 4 which is a family room with two double beds and a bed settee so could easily accommodate a... More

Have just come back from a night at the Goodlife. We stayed in the family room no2. What a fantastic room. After struggling to find the place and ringing the owner, we were met in the car park and helped across with our bags. From the outside we were terrified to enter and we were quietly warning the kids not... More
