The Pier Hotel at Harwich
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Harwich
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Business trip with a colleague. He was very impressed with hotel as was I. Bar meals were excellent as was breakfast. It's a great location and very handy for working in Harwich, Clacton or anywhere within a 10 mile radius.

Room Tip: Sorry no fitness or pool but I couldn't turn off the buttons.

A beautiful meal in a lovely setting with great friendly staff. We had a main course fish curry and the sea bream both well cooked and perfectly served. Two delicious desserts to follow treacle tart with the best stem ginger ice cream I have ever tasted and a plum pudding. Thoroughly enjoyed our day out to The Pier.

Again my wife and I and two friends had a meal in the "downstairs" restaurant and as usual they
came up trumps. On the advice of "sweet Caroline" I had the venison and what a choice it was.,
All the staff were great and attentive (as usual). We all left the Pier feeling well "Fed Up" and
well satisfied.
Well done the Pier and its staff

We stayed at this hotel on the night prior to leaving on a cruise from the Port of Harwich. We chose to have dinner in the Bistro and thoroughly enjoyed the meal with friendly and efficient service. The accommodation was excellent and found the front desk staff to be very courteous and helpful. The room was large with a comfortable bed and separate sitting area. The breakfast which was included in our room tariff included continental selection and boiled eggs with soldiers with several other choices. The young waiting staff were delightful and friendly. Would definitely eat and stay at this hotel when in Harwich again.

Room Tip: In room 8 where we stayed there was a step between the sitting room and the bathroom which was a tri...

We went for lunch in the restaurant downstairs recently, a first time visit for us but a few friends have recommended it . It was very good, we thoroughly enjoyed our food. We had oysters followed by skate wings both of which were excellent. We both liked the fact that you were never rushed and the staff were very helpful and had just the right manner. Would definitely recommend going and we will certainly return, in fact thinking of staying at Christmas. We were shown some rooms all of which were nicely presented some had wonderful views and others varied in size but I would have been happy in any of them.
Altogether very good.

This is a terrific place to stay, not cheap but wonderful. We had two rooms, and had the dinner bed and breakfast package. Dinner delicious, breakfast sensational. The highlight was catching the sea shanty singers on Sunday over a cheeky glass of midday fizz.
Whilst they are dog friendly and Sybil the schnauzer loved it there, they do encourage dogs to keep to one area which I think is just about right.

Room Tip: Ask for sea facing. If in a larger group ask of the second building as it has a massive private li...

Visited Harwich back in August for the first time from Australia.
Stayed overnight here and was highly impressed from arrival to departure!!
Hospitality was outstanding, accommodation deluxe and the food good quality.
Staff even booked our accommodation for our next destination. They went that extra mile for us.
A must when visiting Harwich!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We thank you for your feedback, however we do not respond to individual comments. Following on from a 1.5 million reinvestment over the last 5 months, The Pier at Harwich is once again open and set to become East Anglia's number one coastal destination for food and drink. The redefined brasserie is located on the first floor of the completely modernised 1860 listed building in historic Harwich. Experience all-day dining (all-year-round) and outdoor dining - whenever the sun shines - with a menu celebrating modern classics, an exciting grill menu and wonderful fresh fish and shellfish landed on The Pier's doorstep. Guests can select from a predominantly European wine list or enjoy Prosecco-based cocktails, craft beers and cask ales. The stripped back and raw textured interior, designed by Geraldine Milsom, makes reference to the industrious and hardworking Harwich port, but achieves a balance between function, luxury and glamour. The harbour wall is only 20 metres from the door and The Pier's newly extended first floor balcony (for drinks and outdoor dining) overlooks the water, ships and working docks. With estuary views from every table, The Pier, only a stone's throw from the confluence of the Stour and Orwell estuaries is a very special destination for lovers of great food and drink. NAVYÄRD on the ground floor is a continental bar and terrace adjacent to the working harbour, the ideal place for fun and relaxation. Cask ales, craft beers, a great drinks list, Prosecco-based cocktails and one of the most carefully sourced and extensive gin lists makes the NAVYÄRD 'the' go-to bar for The Pier's neighbours, friends and welcomed guests. The NAVYÄRD is undeniably and unashamedly a 'love letter to the continent' - celebrating and championing the influential and historic links that Harwich holds with Scandanavia and wider Europe. The wines, beers, ales, drinks list and a gin library have been sourced from across Europe and are complemented throughout the day by Nordic-inspired small-plated food. Great coffee, fresh pastries and the simplest tastiest late breakfasts (think eggs, rye bread and avocado) through to open Scandinavian sandwiches, sharing platters and fresh oysters. The 14 bedrooms are individually styled to match the seascape and take full advantage of the brilliant light that you only get when staying on the coast. Harwich enjoys glorious sunsets with molten coloured horizons and the setting sun on the Stour estuary is a special feature of staying at The Pier. All bedrooms are equipped with complimentary soft drink mini-bars, Aromatherapy Associates bathroom products, Sky In-Room and free Wi-Fi making The Pier an exceptional small hotel. ... more   less
