We spent a very pleasant weekend in Southend, staying at this very convenient hotel, which is a stone’s throw from the clifftop and a short walk into town.

The rooms are comfortable without being luxurious with a mini fridge and full tea/coffee making facilities. The bed was not huge but comfortable enough. The bathroom was adequate but not modernised in our case. Why is there always a shelf over the sink for you to bang your head on when you wash your face?

The highlight for us was the lavish breakfast with anything your heart could desire freshly cooked and pleasantly served by the very friendly proprietor and his staff. Full marks for quality and choice that would put many 5 star establishments to shame.There is a small but adequate car park at the back and we did not need to move our car for the duration of our stay.

Three lovely days spent there we booked an executive room which was lovely bright and airy and large with a four poster bed which was quite funny the hotel is on the older type hotel but is spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly , it’s very close to the front,the breakfast was especially nice with everything you want from an English breakfast,a very enjoyable stay
Room Tip: The room we had was large and airy I can’t speak for any of the others

Glen Martin, Tripadvisor Review, stayed March 2017

We stopped in the 2 bedroom apartment for 1 night. Very clean everything you need also had breakfast which was excellent . Would stop again staff were friendly . Hotel handy for the pavilion. Car park a bit small but was able to park in the street outside, so not a problem. Room Tip: We had the 2 bedroom apartment which was very big 2 large bedrooms kitchen and living room.

We stayed in apartment 152 with 2 adults and 1 child.
Very friendly and helpful staff and owner always ready to offer advice and support.
Remember to ask at reception for half price armbands for the pleasure beach rides for adults and kids–very very beneficial
Rooms were clean and comfy with plenty of space and well resourced in terms of TVs and kitchen equipment
Shower was great and breakfast was superb
Room Tip: Apartments are great

We would not want to want to spend our holiday anywhere else when going to that area. The hotel is run by the family who are wonderful people, the location is perfect, just by the sea, close to the theatre and close to the station if you want a trip to London. Abundant breakfast, clean and comfortable rooms.

A lovely hotel with friendly staff, very helpful as well as I mixed up my booking but they sorted it out for me. I would stay there again if I go to Southend again. There was a large selection for breakfast to suit all tastes and free parking.

My husband stayed there last night for one night, as we were going to Brit Floyd Concert. The hotel is clean, the room had everything you need. The staff could not do enough for you. The breakfast comprised of everything you could wish for, cereals, fruit, yogurt’s, English fry up and as much as you could eat. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was large. Very satisfied with our stay and will definitely be going again. Thank you
