Located at Essex's northernmost coastal town, the Pier is the oldest hotel in Harwich, being built on the site of the Quayside brewery in 1860. A charming, dainty building with just seven bedrooms inside the original building and another seven in the annex, the first floor has been transformed over the years to accommodate the wonderful Harbourside restaurant which overlooks the estuary towards the Suffolk coastline.
A quintessentially English seaside hotel, The Pier is a great place for families to enjoy excellent food while overlooking the beautiful Harwich harbour.
Home to 14 bedrooms - all of which have their own luxurious bathroom and king size bed - this relatively small hotel has been bringing tourists from all over to this historic and quaint seaside town.
Located on the North Essex coastline, The Pier has the added benefit of being perfectly placed for serving-up fresh fish, and some of the most sought-after fish at that. The town and hotel is well placed to gather the best lobster and also oysters from nearby Mersea Island with all day dining is available at the restaurant.
What's more, many of the hotel's bedrooms offer a vantage point for savouring the stunning sunsets which sink below the Orwell and Stour estuaries, but this picturesque view can also be enjoyed on the first floor restaurant balcony or ground floor bar and terrace.
