Had daughter's wedding here on the 25th November. She had an amazing day and the staff at the hotel couldn't do anything more for us all. I have to mention by name Jane and Sophie who went out of their way on the day and before to ensure her day was as magical as could be, they worked so hard...

We only stayed for one night while visiting family in the area. The hotel is bright and modern with a BIG comfy bed and a good shower. We were told that there was no food that night (Sunday) but they recommended a local place to visit! The gym is small but perfectly formed and just what you need when away!...

My family hired the whole venue for a 20s themed party to celebrate my husbands nans 90th birthday. It was fantastic, we were really well looked after, our vegan food was delicious and we were not just an after-thought next to all the other guests meals as we sometimes feel! We had a lovely big room and it was a...

I booked a double room at the Rochford Hotel after our airbnb host cancelled at the last minute. Before I booked, I read the reviews which were not always very positive but I thought I'd risk a booking anyway because the hotel was relatively near to Rayleigh. I'm glad we stayed there. Yes, the hotel needs some TLC as the...

Visiting family in Leigh on Sea. Hotel in excellent location as only a short distance from Leigh and not too far to travel to Southend. Staff very friendly. Room excellent with kingsize bed that was unbelievably comfy.

We stayed here earlier this year as we had a wedding and it was a good option. Don't expect anything amazing and yes, it can be loud but its perfect if you are attending; there is parking, the staff are friendly, you can walk back to your room in a second, the beds and comfy and breakfast is acceptable. Unfortunately...

I had only chosen this hotel because it was close to both the station and the venue for the party we were attending but what a wonderful surprise. It was not too easy to get into the parking area, but once there, the staff were so polite and helpful. The room was one of the most pleasant rooms I have...

I was very pleasantly surprised when I walked into the Rochford hotel. The place on the outside looks like a bog standard travelodge type hotel but they've put some real thought into the design of both the public areas and bedrooms. The place looks really good. The marquee at the back for weddings also looks excellent with some lovely pews....
