What a beautiful hotel. Situated on the front at Harwich overlooking the river. We had a beautiful room with mini bar soft drinks. A lovely king size bed. We booked a meal in the upstairs restuarant. Service was excellent. Food were superb. Breakfast was lovely too once we got it. There was not a lot of organisation at breakfast. We... More

Good location and historically interesting hotel. Pleasant and attentive staff, good rooms, clean , tidy and well presented. But a dissapointmemt when they struggle to get breakfast right, regardless of the choice. Surely they should guess when plates return half eaten. The fine dining is also far from its title. The service was superb but the offerings bland , overcooked... More

Day seven of our cycling tour of East Anglia (Aug 20th). Today we are in Harwich staying at the Pier Hotel. Our route has brought us down the coast from Aldeburgh, necessitating the use of foot-ferries in places, not easy with a laden tandem. The foot-ferry from Felixstowe is a great way to arrive as you get panoramic views of... More

We stayed here prior to a cruise. What a perfect way to start our vacation. The restaurant is very good and service is great. The entire staff was very helpful. We would stay again if ever in the area.

We spend a couple of nights in this Milsoms waterfront hotel. Most, if not all of the excellently appointed and equipped rooms are in the old Angel Inn next door. It is a good arrangement as rooms are away from any noise from the restaurants in the main building. The comfortable guest lounge is the old bar area of the... More

Stayed on the 29th of August, for a belated birthday treat. The welcome was warm and check in easy. After a change we had a drink on the patio and then moved to the Harbour side restaurant. The service was ok, a little soulless if truth be told, the spot lights need to be lowered as it gets darker to... More

House in uproar- decorating, needed somewhere local to get away. We've used the Fish'nchippy', ground floor but never eaten upstairs or stayed overnight. Carly found us an 'all in deal', Over looking the sea, great room. The Restaurant staff were great. A friendly knowledgeable manager (knew his wines), and spoilt by Ellie P and Emily. The food was excellent, our... More

Stayed in room 10 in the annexe next door to the hotel. 14 stairs led to a nice room, complete with tea & coffee making facilities, fresh milk in a very cold (unusual as they are normally useless) fridge, together with bottles of complimentary water and pop! The view was of the building opposite! Nice bathroom, smallish shower, complimentary soaps... More

An excellent, quaint British Inn. We stayed for one night on the way to a cruise departing from Harwich. The hotel was clean and the folks at the front desk and in the bar were friendly and very helpful. We had had a problem with our luggage from the airline trip to England and Louise at the front desk offered... More

We booked a one night stay for our precruise hotel. We were delightfully surprised with the hotel and the town of Harwich. The hotel is three stories with no elevator (or lift) but that was no problem as they had a storage area on the 1st floor that we could keep our big pieces of luggage. The staff from the... More
