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.
We offer hotel and restaurant, with Rigbys, a Beatles- themed Wine Bar. The restaurant and bar are open to both guests and non- residents.
