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

An exceptionally friendly greeting welcomed us to this hotel overlooking the harbour on the edge of the Old Town of Harwich. Vikki checked us in and told us everything we needed to know about the hotel, dining, local area etc without us having to ask a single question. Our room (#2) was on the 2nd floor and looked out to... More

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

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
