There are a range of rooms to choose from: singles, twins, standard doubles, suites and kings. Some rooms enjoy stunning views of the River Stour or garden.
Our magnificent restaurant retains all its delicately sculpted ceiling mouldings and cornices that have been faithfully restored and repaired in the original pastel colours whilst crystallin. There is an excellent range of traditional dishes as well as more imaginative and adventurous meals, all complemented by quality wines from our carefully selected wine list. It is perfect for small business receptions, lunch and dinner parties or family celebrations.

Dovercourt is the residential and holiday suburb of Harwich and, although more modern in appearance, it is actually older and larger than Harwich and is indeed mentioned in the Domesday Book. Fine promenade areas, an attractive and safe beach – seafront recently awarded the prestigious Blue Flag – parks and entertainments, including choral and band concerts, as well as the fortunate low rainfall, make it a most welcoming town with good hotels and restaurants for those wishing to stay a while. Excellent waters also make sailing, windsurfing and angling pleasurable pastimes.
