We stayed for a Sunday night on a DBB deal having visited occasionally over the years for a meal or two. The welcome was excellent -Vikki has been mentioned before by a reviewer, and she was very helpful. We had a seaward (Really riverward) room on the second floor -no lift-so a bit of problem a for me, and Vikki... More

The room was spotlessly clean i felt guilty walking on the carpet there was also complimentary bottles of pop and water... More

A mixed age group of 7 of us had a great fish meal and a few drinks in the downstairs restaurant / bistro. Fresh fish at the seaside can't be beaten. The service was good and the food served promptly and all together. For a bitterly cold January day this was a nice treat with good views and a pleasant... More

Exceptionally friendly staff and great sea views (make sure you pay a bit extra to have one if poss) ensure this hotel wildly exceeds expectations for a remote English seaside town. Bedrooms and food are good rather than outstanding in the grans scheme of things, but don't let that put you off. Fresh milk and free soft drinks in the... More

Just arrived back from three days staying at the Pier hotel for my wife's 60th. It was good to see 1st class service in this country. This hotel has got it right. The staff are young but deliver service to a level that needs to be experienced. I do not accept second best however I am writing this review now... More

We stayed in room Pier 3 for our 1 year wedding anniversary & all I can say is "WOW!" From the moment we arrived in the car park the staff went out of their way to welcome us. We booked to have dinner in the 1st floor restaurant & the food was something else not to mention the service. The... More

We stayed at The Pier for one night before we joined a cruise ship sailing from Harwich. We arrived at the hotel in mid-afternoon and found that our room was on the second floor. There is no lift and there was no-one available at the time to help with our bags, although we were told that someone would be available... More

Been to Harwich several times, but either stayed elsewhere or driven late night/early morning to catch the ferries. Now that the Harwich-Esbjerg route has stopped, it’s just the Hoek Van Holland clientele who will probably be needing to stay here on a regular basis (if catching the early morning sailings from Harwich). Anyway: The Pier is good value, and in... More
