I had my 50th Birthday at the Tower Hotel on the 22nd December 2012, and I had the most amazing time.

The staff were fantastic especially Karen, every requirement I requested she provided or assisted.

I stayed over night with my husband, the room was beautiful other members of the family stayed too they were also very happy with their rooms.

Thank you very much Karen,Heidi and all the other staff members that made my day so very special.

King regards

Sharon James.

I spent only one night at the Tower Hotel ( Wednesday 21st Nov) I enjoyed it so much that next time I have to visit the area I will stay longer . When booking over the phone the staff were friendly . The young lady I spoke to gave me details on how to find the hotel. When I booked in I was greeted with a smile and shown to my room, something that is missing from all the big chain hotels and indeed from a lot of the smaller independent ones too.When I went down to the eat staff offered me a choice of where I could sit,The food was excellent quality and again service was fantastic.Upon my return to the bar the young lady there was wonderful and a credit to the company . I won’t name her on here but given that I had spent 7 hours driving with no one to talk to I talked her socks down and back up. again. Throughout the evening she showed an interest in, and knowledge of the topics up for discussion, while still completing her work efficiently . The room was comfortable and I heard nothing of the other guests. Breakfast was served in the bar area and again was of a good standard. On checking out the member of staff dealt with me efficiently, gave me directions to my destination . She told me it was only a short walk away and given problems with parking suggested I leave my car at the Hotel. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL. I am looking forward to my return visit

We recently stayed at the Tower Hotel prior to beginning our Royal Caribbean cruise (August 21, 2011). It was a wonderful experience! The hotel is clean and quiet. Karen is a friendly ‘Innkeeper’ who made us feel right at home. It was the perfect beginning to our vacation. We would highly recommend the hotel. Our advice to anyone planning to cruise out of Harwich – get there a day or two early and explore this beautiful, friendly town!

Last year we spent two nights at the Tower Hotel. The rooms, the bar, the restaurant, the staff, the building … everything was great! For September this year we have already booked! We look forward to it!

Always a very warm welcome in Rigby’s bar on arrival, lovely food served in a stunning restaurant with friendly staff, and rooms equal to a lot of 5 star hotels.

The Tower Hotel is our regular stay on our frequent visits to Dovercourt.

We celebrated our Golden Wedding here last week with twenty family members. Everyone including ourselves were delighted with the excellent food and accomodation which as always was second to none.

A very BIG thank you to Karen and all the staff who made this an occasion to remember with peasure. We shall be back again soon.

We were married on the 3rd October 2010, was the best day of our lives. We had choosen this hotel because of it grand feel and luxurious decor, and simply because this was our secret retreat.

Karen made our day brilliant she made sure everything was prepared and organised for us, so there was no need to worry.

Also the staff, cleaners and chefs went beyond expectations. The food would rival any top restaurant, our wedding reception menu was delicious and exquistely presented. Rooms were absolutely immaculate each morning.

We had 24 guests who all agreed that this was a fantantic hotel, charming staff and great food, and so affordable.

This is one of the finest hotels in Essex, and I would recommend anyone to come to stay in this hotel or simply taste the delights of the restaurant. Maybe a 3 star hotel but it has 5 star staff, food, and rooms but without the price tag.

Thank you everyone at The Tower Hotel for all your support on the day and we will see you soon.
