We stayed just one night after flying in from Houston to board a cruise ship the next day. Desk staff was so helpful and had our room ready early as requested. That was so nice after the long flight and ride to Harwich. The restaurant is amazing. What friendly staff everywhere you go. Allowed a late check out and arranged... More

We just wanted a Saturday night away and to be honest The Tower wouldn't have been out first choice but our preferred option was fully booked. That turned out to be to our advantage as The Tower was a real gem. Our room - the Patrick suite - was spacious, very clean and nicely decorated, with a wonderful bathroom. Lovely... More

Stayed at the Tower Hotel after getting off ten day cruise, what a wonderful treat it was. I knew it was nice from the pics and the tripadvisor reviews but it blew us away. The garden area is just gorgeous, grand fountain, lovely pots of beautiful flowers everywhere, and planted along the one wall. Just a wonderful respite from being... More

We stumbled upon the Tower Hotel whilst visiting family staying in another hotel and The Tower restaurant was simply excellent. Superb food, too cheap in my opinion and excellent service. All 6 of us had excellent food and we will definitely be back, to stay next time as well. Thank you for an excellent luncheon!

We were skeptical when we saw the prices (they're LOW!) and we were completely blown away. Granted, Harwich is not a happening tourist hot spot. There's not a lot going on here at all, but it was an overnight stop before a cruise for us, and it far surpassed our expectations and requirements. We stayed in the Jones Suite, which... More

Booked two suites, the Nelson and Jones. Jones was really nice and included a jacuzzi. Hotel is beautiful. Staff could not have been more accommodating. Harwich is a very interesting town rich in history. Come in the day before the cruise and enjoy it.

Attended a wedding and reception at this venue. The Hotel staff were very accommodating and friendly. The decoration and layout is in keeping with its Italian style. The main feature of this imposing building is the attractive tower at its northeast corner. It has a wealth of ornamental ceilings, cornices, beautiful architraves and is crowned by an impressive balustrade. It... More

Nice looking hotel. Watch our step though...the little steps in and out are not marked and not quite an average footing so easy to fall or trip. Also, you can enjoy the pub especially if you are a Beatles fan...they are everywhere and seem to be the main decor. If ordering a drink...plan on paying a large charge for a... More
