This 1885 house, now a very spacious and comfortable hotel, is a great haven after the traumas of ferry travel. Public rooms are large with splendid chandeliers, stained glass windows and a splendid central staircase leading to six double rooms. There is a large friendly bar with 60's music. Breakfast (extra) starting at 0745 was very good indeed and although... More

My wife and I popped in here for a quick drink and a nose around, we were pleasantly surprised by the drink prices and very impressed with the venue, what a gorgeous building and gardens, there's Beetles memorabilia all over the place for some reason though, I would highly recommend a visit.

Stayed one night on business. Bedroom absolutely fine. Bar area well maintained and comfortable. Free wifi a bonus but didn't hold in my bedroom. After doing my 'business' decided to eat from the bar menu, was told a problem in the kitchen which is good to be told about but a 40 min wait turned into over an hour. Most... More

The bedroom suites are beautiful and surprisingly reasonable in comparison to other hotels of a similar quality. There is also a lovely Beatles Themed bar where, as well as alcoholic drinks you can get a lovely coffee or a smashing cuppa!

We visited the restaurant at the weekend, a large group of maybe 12 people. Our table was all ready for us & as we had all pre ordered our meals during the week, it was quite a smooth operation. We had a little wait for our courses but it was understandable, we weren't the only people eating & there was... More

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...
