My wife and I stayed at Tower Hotel to visit family in Dovercourt. We had stayed previously about three years ago and decided to stay again. On the previous occasion, the hotel was comfortable, but noticeably disorganised. We discovered that The Tower is now being managed by Paul, who, although he had much to do, made time to chat with...

Booked a night before a cruise to take advantage of the cheap parking so it was a real bonus to find such a charming hotel. Receptionist at time of booking and on arrival very welcoming. Room was very good. We enjoyed a pleasant bar meal as we hadn't booked for the restaurant. The breakfast was good value and quality. Well... More

The Hotel's manager made us feel so incredibly welcome - he went above and beyond his duties to ensure our stay was happy. Food was fabulous - we ate dinner at the hotel too. I can't recommend this hotel enough. We also went to the hotel's sister restaurant for lunch which was also excellent.

Nice location, center of London. You can relax with Thames river view in your room. Good service and people are amazing!!! Easy transportation everywhere in London. Just 10 mins walks to tube station.

I didn't stay in the hotel so my review is solely for the restaurant. There were eighteen of us celebrating an 80th birthday and we had a separate room at the back of the hotel. The food was very good, hot and plentiful. The staff all worked hard and did a great job.

A nice looking hotel and a good restaurant for an evening meal. It's fortunate the restaurant is good as there is precious little choice nearby as the area is very run down. Our shower didn't work and the sink was blocked. We were told by the receptionist that this was a regular problen due to hard water and that the... More

Although hardly any customers in the restaurant the service was incredibly slow, orders were wrong and the food very average. The salad with my skate wing was so bitter I couldn't eat it. The young waiter was poor and ignorant, approaching after a course and gruffly asking "finished?" The restaurant manager was in a rush to get us seated, not... More

The food was cooked perfectly! I had hunters chicken with bbq sauce which was amazing, nice size chicken breast, with a good piece of bacon and wedges! The salad... More

Excellent. staff were outstanding nothing was to much for them with fantastic friendly service. Food was fabulous, Very under rated should be classed as five star. Very very clean and decor was amazing. Other Hotels in Harwich and Dovercourt are not in the same league. Nice menus with choice of whether to eat in the beautiful restaurant, Bar or Lovely... More

We chose the Tower Hotel as the venue for our wedding ceremony and breakfast (we chose the buffet), and I'm so happy that we did - it was perfect for our slightly smaller, more personal wedding (30 people) and the staff (special mention to the manager - Paul, a lovely bloke who was incredibly helpful all throughout the day) were...
