Your welcoming hosts at the Tower Hotel, Harwich, extend their warmest welcome and offer superb value hotel accommodation with 13 spacious, bright & airy rooms, offering 7 hotel deals on selected nights, including nearby parking, plus free WiFi throughout.

Built in 1885, in the Italian style, as a private residence, the main feature of this imposing building is the attractive tower at its northeast corner. It has a wealth of ornamental ceilings, cornices, beautiful architraves and is crowned by an impressive balustrade. It is not surprising to find this is a classified Grade Two-Listed Building. Set in its own pleasant leafy grounds, it retains an air of bygone elegance. However, in line with its admirable adaptation to its new life as a hotel, it has wide, easy access to the main road at either end of its sweeping drive.

The bedrooms are spacious, some or which are named after prominent people in the history of Harwich and Dovercourt. All rooms are centrally heated, and furnished to a very high standard for your personal comfort. Each room has private en-suite facilities with hairdryer, telephone and colour television. There is also provision for guests to enjoy tea or coffee as early or as late as they wish. Several of the rooms can comfortably accommodate family groups. (An additional £10 will be charged per additional bed required) Room service will happily provide an early morning call. We have two basic twin rooms available on the ground floor, one is designed for disabled use.

Directions: From the M25 and London, take the A12 then the A120, always signposted to Harwich (NOT Stansted). At the large roundabout (Ramsey) 6 miles before Harwich, take third exit signposted Dovercourt and carry along this road for 2 miles going through a residential area. We are on the left hand side. From Harwich International Port, follow signs to Dovercourt. We are on the left hand side of the road. A taxi journey from the port to the hotel is less than 5 minutes. By Train, take a train to Harwich, and get off at Dovercourt. Walk out of the station and turn right at the traffic lights. We are a few minutes’ walk up the high street, on the right hand side.
