Having grown up in Harwich I returned for a family party and booked to stay at The Tower Hotel. The Tower Hotel was originally built as a private domestic residence in 1885 by Mr Pattrick. The hotel has both standard and executive rooms, and I stayed in the Bagshaw room. The welcome was warm and the room on arrival was... More

This hotel is beautiful. The staff are friendly, the prices reasonable, the rooms are small but everything you need is there and it is spotlessly clean. We had a rushed weekend and wish we had more time to have a proper meal at the hotel rather than just a baguette (which was delicious) If we visit Harwich again we will... More

Having come to stay at The Castle Hotel for a family funeral, I'm glad I stayed here. The hotel is lovely, clean and comfortable but the staff are what really made this hotel. When we checked in, Karen was very helpful and looked after me, and other family members checking in, so well. And staying up for a few drinks... More

Lovely hotel with facilities and shops close by. Set in a nice area. The rooms were comfy and clean and the staff were very helpful and polite. The gardens were lovely and there was a relaxed and friendly atmosphere at all times.

I went here mid-week with a couple of friends to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant was very quiet with only another table taken. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated but as someone else has reviewed it looks a little like its in the 1980s. The menu was not huge but it had enough choice however I think the steak muffin,...

a splendid-looking hotel with wonderful public rooms, good food and exceedingly helpful staff. But be aware the magnificent flight of stairs isn't by-passed by a lift. And the musak was ghastly. But it is very well situated for both Old Harwich and the port of Harwich. Oh and it is amazingly handy for Asda
