Good Hotel Guide Review
In a ‘great position’ on the quayside of this pretty, historic port town, Paul Milsom’s ‘excellent’ hotel comprises two handsome buildings – a 19th-century palazzo-style former waiting room for ferry passengers, and a 17th-century pub. It underwent considerable redevelopment in 2016. A slick brasserie on the first floor now serves food all day, with alfresco meals on the extended balcony; snacks and light bites can be taken in the ground-floor bar. Access has been improved, too: a small lift now whizzes guests to bedrooms on the top floor. ‘Our good-sized, double-aspect corner bedroom had a settee and (hooray!) Anglepoise bedside lights.’ Sea-lovers, ask for a room at the front for panoramic views of Old Harwich’s heritage Ha’Penny Pier. (The sound-sensitive might want to discuss room choices before booking: some guests this year had ‘a good night’s sleep’, while others were bothered by noise from the ‘busy’ harbour.) The Mayflower Museum is nearby. ‘Great breakfasts.’ (Richard Bright, John and Fay Waters)
Lobster Lovers Sunday
Extend the weekend with this extra special Sunday night offer. The Pier is lucky to have the best local lobsters which are delivered almost daily from the harbour opposite, hence the reason for the Lobster Lovers Sunday! Included: Overnight accommodation in the best available room with full breakfast; Medium Lobster, fries and salad; bottle of Petit Chablis; for just £85 per person. This offer is based in double occupancy and subject to availability on Sunday nights in May, June, July and August. When booking, please mention the Good Hotel Guide.
