Guest Reviews

Overall rating: 3.1 out of 5
 We booked one night's stay in Harwich prior to departing on a cruise to Norway. We were pleased with this decision since it gave us time to recuperate from the long trans-Atlantic flight and removed the stress of getting from Heathrow to the cruise terminal on the day of departure. We had a beautiful room overlooking the sea and we had an excellent dinner and breakfast in the hotel dining room. A real pleasant, and authentically British experience!
