Second time here, good as ever. We stayed for three nights and could not find fault with anything. We eat downstairs in the bistro each evening, good lively staff and excellent food. Try their plaice and chips, plain but perfectly cooked. Steak and Kidney pie which was a special was also good.

This is a gorgeous hotel with fantastic views of the pier and coast. The room was very spacious, clean, comfortable and had sky TV. They had great toiletries which I use anyway! Dinner was fantastic with a great choice of fresh fish and meat. I had a great night sleep and woke feeling refreshed!

This is a good hotel, a really good restaurant and exceptional staff and were it in a different location then it could really shine. The hotel is in a smaller building across the road from the restaurant/bistro/reception area and access for those with mobility issues may not be easily overcome. The staff were really welcoming we were shown to our... More

Stayed here on Saturday 11th April. What a fabulous little find this place is. Beautifully situated on the harbour with stunning views day and night. A typical quintessential English seaside town to browse round. And the icing on the cake is the Electric Palace 1911 Cinema open most days showing current films in an historical setting. The hotel was packed... More

On arrival at this hotel, we were horrified to take in the location. I would describe the harbour side setting as more of a dockside setting. The 'stunning' views were of the historic but rusty old Radio Caroline ship beside the container yard. No little boats bobbing around in the harbour! The noise from the container yard was also a...

I come to The Pier Hotel at Harwich very often, and I am always delighted whenever I come, and I return frequently. The Pier is in a great location and is by the sea. The entrance is very nice and everything is stylishly decorated, with a cool 'ship' theme. Also, at Christmas, the Pier is beautifully decorated, like its brothers,... More

Friendly staff, gorgeous breakfast (French toast was delicious), well equipped rooms with everything to a high standard, and well located for a walk along the coast to the Redoubt fort. Highly recommend!

This is a busy place, but the service is good. The food is reasonable and not badly priced. Given the location virtually in the sea it is a good place to relax. I would recommend for a nice lunch. Not so sure about dinner, though we have enjoyed dinner there,

A lovely weekend shared with my husband at this beautiful hotel right on the front of Harwich. A prime position sits this lovely hotel. The staff are very well trained to a high standard. Nothing is to much trouble. We had a beautiful 4 course meal with champagne. Breakfast was very laid back and as delicious as the evening meal.... More

My partner & I had a delightful Saturday evening at the "Harbourside Restaurant" in the "Pier Hotel" at Harwich. The receptionist greeted us and we made our way to the first floor restaurant. We were greeted by the very friendly staff which was a delight. The service by all the Waiters, Waitresses & All The Staff was excellent. Everyone was... More
