We decided to stay in Harwich before boarding our ship the following day, and booked a night at The Pier. This is under a 10 minute walk from the Harwich Town Station and is quite easy to find. The hotel was built in the US civil war era, and across the street is an interesting museum that includes information on... More

Last minute decision to drive down to Harwich from Colchester for lunch. Despite not booking in advance the receptionist accommodated our party and we were speedily seated. Good range of good options. We only had starters & main courses. We had Garlic Breads, Clam Chowder & 1/2 Pint of Prawns (which was served in a bowl). For the main courses... More

We spent the night at The Pier before boarding our cruise ship the next day. Very comfortable room, and the entire staff was extremely friendly and most helpful. Room 2 over looks the water front, neat view! We had dinner and breakfast, both were very nice. The hotel arranged for a taxi to take us to the port, just a... More

as you walk in you get taken to the dining room on the left and it is very dated like something from the 70s . the menu also seemed dated and not very fresh . Its a shame because when I was growing up this seemed to be the place to eat .... just has not moved with the times

Stayed at this hotel for one evening as part of a leisure trip and enjoyed everything about it. When we arrived, it was a misty wet morning down by the docks and initial impressions of the hotel from the outside weren't great. However, by the time we came to check in the weather had brightened and the charm of the... More

From the moment you arrive until your final goodbyes this place has it all. Lovely and attentive staff - and a big thank you to Vicky for making our stay so relaxing. Quirky and comfortable rooms; free parking / wifi and the perfect location for a night away. We had dinner and breakfast - both were first class. Well worth... More

A superbly appointed room with amazing views over the harbour.9Amazing to see a huge cruise ship slip by no more than 30 m. away!) Huge comfortable bed, armchairs with footstools, sky TV, wide selection of... More

The staff at this hotel are always so helpful and friendly, the service is always first class. We always have room 8 as this is in... More

Have eaten here before and as always excellent food & very friendly staff. We both had the hake which with the other ingredients were cooked to perfection. The puddings were equally delicious, could not fault the whole experience.
