This is the first time we'd ever been to the town of Harwich, After a brisk walk it was time for Fish & Chips by the sea side. We were pleasantly surprised by this place. We walked in and it seemed very modern a spacious for this old building. We were greeted by a wee Scots lady who showed us... More

We had Lunch last week in the Restaurant at the Pier Hotel. We had a pre-lunch drink from the Bar downstairs and were able to sit outside and watch the world go by. Lunch upstairs in the restaurant (we had a window table which I had requested when booking) was really very good. Lobsters were on offer at half price... More

I was greeted at reception by Vicky who checked me in and showed me to my room, Pier 7 on the top floor. Vicky explained where everything was and left me to settle in. Pier 7 is a Deluxe Double and although located at the rear of the hotel with a view overlooking parked cars, it was very comfortable. The... More

Here’s an odd situation, when you’ve been a regular customer of a hotel/restaurant for a number of years, submitted honest and highly praised reviews before, then need to post another one, what do you? Like many rules, even those unwritten, there is an exception to this one, especially as the praise is even more deserved than it has been before!... More

Just returned from a 3 night break at the Pier Hotel, what a great place. We had a deluxe room overlooking the harbour, it was brilliant. We dined in both the Bistro and the Harbourside restaurant, and they were both amazing, compliments to the chef's. All the staff were very polite and courteous and very friendly, couldn't have asked for... More

It's sometimes hard to get motivated to write gushing, positive reviews, but I've just got back from an overnight stop at the Pier and it was brilliant. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgable, the rooms were excellent, and the food and beers were great. I''d been saddened to read a couple of recent negative revews but my own experience...

My partner and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at The Pier Hotel, Harwich. The purpose of our stay was to attend my mother's 65th birthday and for some relaxation time. Check-in was completed very quickly and from the moment we entered the building, the staff could have been more friendly and we received a first class... More
