      • Older travelers
        5.8

        Good location for town centre and sea front.

        Not quite up to a 4* standard as advertisted by AA.Room needed update decor abit shabby.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        Sky sports on very load in the bar

        Stained carpet,cracked bathroom tiles,and chipped furniture. Buffet breakfast overcooked sausages scrambled egg was pale and solid but having your own toaster on the table was a definite plus

      • Older travelers

        The friendly staff

        Breakfast room was a little cramped and not much space in car park

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        Good location, friendly staff.

        When making the booking through your website it showed that this property had a shuttle to the airport and this was one of the main reasons I booked this hotel. Upon checking in at the hotel, we learned they don't have a shuttle to the airport. They said we weren't the first customers to say this, so obviously there is something not right with the information you are advertising for this hotel.

      • Older travelers

        Friendly Welcome. Location close to centre of town and seafront for very reasonable price

      • Older travelers

        The hotel staff were extremely friendly. The rooms and hotel were immaculately clean and the breakfast was very good. Would definitely stay again.

        One of the beds was a bit unstable. The car park was too small and had to park across the road, however this was free parking.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        We found this place very bright, very clean, very quiet & very friendly. That was all we wanted for a quiet time to be able to relax.

        There was nothing we didn't like. However, the place was a "tiny bit" disorganised: no visitors' book to sign; dirty laundry around in the laundry room in sight next to the kitchen. And maybe you could try to close the kitchen door when cooking to prevent cooking smells going up the stairs ! It is a REALLY NICE PLACE, and all the staff we met came across as nice people, especially Bertie. Can you find some way of ensuring visitors "come across" the staff more, so that they feel the welcome we felt. I know you are all over-busy, but you are an asset worth exploiting in this way if you can find some ideas how to do it.

        within easy walking distance to Cliff pavilion to see Robbie Williams, which was the only purpose for my visit to Southend. Breakfast was plentiful & the staff were pleasant

        My booking was for a twin bedded room for myself & my daughter. We were shown to a ground floor room which seemed to be some sort of apartment with a door into a kitchen area with cooker fridge & microwave. This had a "back door" which led out onto the carpark. At first, we were a little puzzled & didn't feel safe,and although there was a chain on the door, it didn't stop us wedging chairs up against both doors when we went to bed. The duvet on my bed just fitted the bed so there was no overhang, this meant i woke several times feeling cold. The decor was sad, tired & needed updating.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Our room was very well equiped with just about everything that you can think of. From a chandelier and four-poster bed to an ironing board.

        It is in a very narrow street and although it adverises a car park, it only holds a few cars and is invariably full. And because of the location, parking is a pain. Our initial reaction as we walked in was, what have we done booking this dump. But that proved to be solely down to a scruffy reception desk, but first impressions count. It wouldnt be fair to call it a back-packers hotel but that was our first impression.
