Landlubbers' haven at the heart of old Harwich

Fashioned on a Venetian palazzo back in 1862, The Pier at Harwich is rather grand outside. Inside this quayside hotel perched at the water's edge, all is bright and fresh with nautical accents.

Know It All

Hit the Spot
Bang on the seafront in old Harwich.

Come here for...
• Sea-bright views, fresh sea breezes and sea-fresh food. • Nautically themed rooms • The quirky charm of being right on the docks. • Fresh oysters with a glass of bubbly.

There are two restaurants – a ground floor brasserie style bistro and the smarter Harbourside upstairs. Both major on seafood.

Good to know
Bring some binoculars – there's plenty to watch in the harbour.


14 rooms, including the Mayflower suite.

Special features
All rooms have wide beds, fluffy white towels, satellite TV and great views over the Stour and Orwell estuaries. There's wi-fi throughout.

Pillow talk
Try the enormous bed in the Mayflower suite for size. There's even a telescope for playing I-Spy.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Fresh-landed fish is on the menu daily at The Pier's Harbourside restaurant. You can also gorge on toasted goat’s cheese on walnut bread with rocket leaves, native oysters on ice and a coconut basket with white chocolate and apricot cream.

Continental breakfast is served until 9.30am.

Room service
Available morning and evening.


See & Do
Earn your nautical stripes by hiring a sailing boat from the town’s pier and having a day at sea. Walk along the sea wall to Dovercourt and onto the blue flag beach – perfect for a bracing dip. And do book seats for a show at the nearby Electric Palace cinema – a vintage gem.

Diary Dates
Soloists, choirs and operatic troupes take to the stage at the annual Harwich Festival.
