My partner and I wanted to get away with our 3 dogs so decided to try the Pier. On arrival we were on the top floor (room 3) Amazing views but not greyhound friendly stairs. Moved us immediately to the ground floor. Our dogs are our children and they were treated like royalty by everyone at the hotel. Both restaurants... More

Harwich is an ancient east coast seaport and The Pier is the only 4 star hotel in the town. It's location is spectacular, overlooking the estuary with its yachts and also the huge commercial vessels at Felixstowe and the car ferry from Holland. I stayed in room 12 which was a bit on the small size but comfortable and reasonably... More

A good spot to sit and watch the world go by while waiting to embark on our holiday . We enjoyed the ambiance on a fine day, and the snacks were perfectly acceptable - my clam chowder was a little short on clams, but the waitress in charge was very pleasant and dynamic. She was followed around by several younger... More

Nice and modern feel to the rooms, some above the main building and others in an annex over the road but with a large lounge to relax in. Complimentary soft drinks. Bedding lovely and soft, makes for a good night,s sleep. Restaurant has good selection of food.

Stayed here for a night while cycling the area. Hotel îs perfectly located for the small foot/bike ferry that runs across the river. Our room had a great view and although a bit smaller than expected, very comfortable and after getting soaked while cycling, the huge bath, plentiful hot water and nice toiletries where very welcome. After drinks on the... More

Recently stayed in the Mayflower Suite for just one night and ate dinner in the Harbourside (upstairs) restaurant. As expected the room was large, nicely appointed and had great views. Complimentary soft drinks in the mini-bar were a nice touch.The bathroom was also huge although a little tired in it's overall appearance. The website describes this as 'possibly the best... More

We have been coming to the Pier restaurant for many years but after moving out of the area a few years ago it has been a while since our last visit. Word of mouth in the town is not as positive as it previously was about the Pier but we thought we would find out for ourselves. It was clear... More
