The Pier Hotel, Essex
|The Quay, CO12 3HH, Harwich, Essex, UNITED KINGDOM.|
Description: The Pier HotelSpectacularly located on the harbour quay in Harwich, The Pier Hotel is set in two side-by-side historic buildings, one built in the 1850s and the other in the 18th century. Extensively renovated and restored, the Pier Hotel offers boutique accommodation and great food in a spectacular waterfront setting.
Uniquely placed for exploring Harwich and the Essex coast, The Pier Hotel is within easy reach of many of this traditional seafaring town's most important landmarks and attractions, including the Maritime Museum, the Redoubt Fort, or the Electric Palace Cinema, one of the oldest purpose-built cinemas in Britain. Standing opposite the Harwich-Felixstowe foot ferry, the hotel is especially popular with cyclists exploring the North Sea coast, and is of course ideally located for guests using ferry services to and from the continent. For sailing enthusiasts, the hotel has teamed up with Viking Mariner to offer stay and sail deals on Viking Blue, a 52 foot luxury yacht, or the catamaran Alchemy.
The Pier Hotel is home to two unique dining venues: The Ha'penny Bistro, for informal seafood grills and top-class fish and chips throughout the day, and The Harbourside Restaurant, serving the finest, freshest locally caught fish and seafood with fantastic harbour views, accompanied by a magnificent selection of wines from the hotel's cellar.
