Visited on the 16th of may 2015 to the 17th of may. Arrived 14:30 and were welcomed by the general manager who was lovely! We booked 3 rooms, 1 twin, 1 double and 1 single. All rooms were lovely, with own en-suite, tea and coffee making facilities and hairdryer. Beds were extremely comfortable. All rooms were warm and cosy. Shower... More

Recently returned from a 1 night stay at The Tower Hotel and it was lovely. Met by a very lovely receptionist and we were checked in within minutes. Me and my sister had room 6 which was a twin and it was very large and nicely decorated. Shower very good and TV in good working order. A very good selection... More

Very slow service, dissapointing food. Just poor service in general, drink spilt down the back of my sisters jacket, missing dessert order, missing starter order. Overpriced for what we received. Felt neglected as a table of 12 so it wasnt the best experience unfortunately so would not revisit. Would not recommend.

We made an overnight stop here prior to catching the morning ferry from Harwich to the Hook of Holland. It’s the first time we’d made this crossing as we usually travel via Dover and Calais. The crossing is obviously longer but worth it to shave around two hundred miles off our driving distance to South Holland. The Stenna ferries on... More

The hotel is lovely. The décor is beautiful, the room was clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was nice although a limited choice. Would highly recommend a stay here. Will definitely book a return visit soon.

Although we did not stay at this hotel this time, we definitely would give it a go, next time we are in Harwich. The hotel was very comfortable, upmarket, and staff were lovely. We stopped for morning coffee and were very impressed with the ambiance and attention to detail. I believe prices are very competitive too.

What a gem of a place. So much local history surrounding the building itself and the area. Hotel was clean and well decorated and staff were polite and helpful, you could not ask for more. Super value for money. We were staying at the hotel for a wedding. The room for the wedding was beautiful and the garden was an... More
