The Tower is an imposing building with a history going back many years. It served as an ideal stopover before going to a cruise ship. The room was a little old-fashioned in decor but was comfortable and warm

Stayed in the Tower Hotel for the second time. Last time our navigation system had trouble finding it, but this time we realised we should enter the address and Dovercourt as place and not Harwich. And this time it went perfectly. The hotel is only a short ride from the port and therefore very convenient to catch the ferry to... More

We had lunch on Saturday as a celebration for my in-laws diamond anniversary. The meal was good and cooked to order, everyone enjoyed it, especially the in-laws. It is ideal for this sort of event, personally its not somewhere I would choose for myself, but given the attendees it was the right choice. We were the only group in to... More

We stayed at this hotel the night before a cruise. The room was neat & tidy but a little tired. The dining room was of a high decorative standard & I had an excellent curry. We left our car at the hotel for the duration of the cruise which was great value for money. Breakfast was extra however it was... More

Nine of us went here on Saturday evening to celebrate a birthday. On arrival we were very impressed with the look of the building as you approach, there is ample parking to the rear of the property and plenty of room on entering the property to enjoy the splendour of the decor of the reception area there is also a...

We stayed here night before our cruise. Had the greater suite. An excellent hotel. Service and food exceeded our expectations. Room superb, a real gem of an hotel. Feel under rated as only 3 star certainly deserves higher rating. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I just returned from an 11 night British Isles cruise, and spent the night pre-cruise at the Tower Hotel in Harwich Port. This is a very small town (no taxis waiting for you when you get off the train, so be prepared with a phone number to call for a ride!), and the hotel choices are limited. I was really... More
