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

We stayed here on our way to and from Holland on the ferry. Lovely hotel, accepted our pet dog who was also allowed to stay in the restaurant with us :^), which served great food. Nice room although rather warm, had all necessary amenities. Private car park at back, so no problems parking. Lovely helpful staff. Would recommend.

We have just returned from a wonderful night at the Pier. Our room (The Mayflower suite) was immaculately presented, very well equipped and with free Wifi with a good signal, large comfy chairs to sit at and soak in the view, a huge bathroom with separate bath and shower. The extra touches of Ren products, free soft drinks in the... More

Booked a one night deal with dinner and breakfast and paid extra to upgrade the room. When we arrived we were shown to what can only be described as an annex next door, a shabby building needing a lick of paint. The room was small with a grubby bathroom, stained tiles, icky sealant round bath etc. After taking off the... More

Alma Inn is 5 minutes away and not to be missed.We were in room 3 which was a very good room. It was a corner room facing the bay. In the morning were could see... More
