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

Only stayed 1 night with my wife and son the night before our 11 nights cruise Used the parking facilities only £3.50 per day, half the price of the cruise terminal Very helpful and friendly staff very good evening meal, only have the light breakfast if you are going on a cruise, big well decorated comfortable rooms will stay longer...

We stayed in the Tower Hotel in Harwich for one night in early August as we awaited our cruise ship the following day. We checked in at 8 pm and had already had dinner so can't really comment on the restaurant. The check-in was quick and friendly and we were shown to our room on the first floor. I'm glad... More

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
