We often stay here to visit friends and family. This time, we were woken up at 4 am by two “ladies” having a row. It was dealt with promptly, efficiently and in a very professional manner. We would like to commend the receptionist on her prompt action

Hotel's Favourite
Great location at Thorpe bay literally across the road from the sea. We had ground floor access room which was great for us. The only downside is if you are upstairs there is no lift. However this is pointed out on their website. Hotel nice and clean room absolutely clean. Ideal size king sized bed premier Inn wardrobe lol desk chair and comfy chair flat screen TV. Really what more do you want. Personally we only really sleep and shower in room as we go out and explore the area. There is a Toby carvery next door. Plenty of parking. Don't forget on check Inn give receptionist vehicle registration and you then get free parking. Great Chinese restaurant about 2 minutes walk or a lovely new bar/restaurant next door. You are about a mile away from the iconic pier. Nice friendly staff. Who will help you just be nice to them

Great location for seaside walks, and easy access to Thorpe Bay, Shoeburyness and Southend. Really friendly and helpful reception staff ensuring you have all you need. Really modern and spotlessly clean bathroom. Shame restrictions on window openings in place as fresh air would be welcomed

No in house restaurant but a really good Toby Inn within 20 yards, wi-fi very slow, if at all, plenty of free parking, The hotel was quite and clean, the beach is just across the road, and there is a good bus service into Southend central, only a couple of stops. Rooms were clean, shower and bath very good, I did not like the idea that the rooms were not checked every day, the pandemic was the excuse, but the staff can be checked quite regularly now with PCL.readily available. No noise, so if its peace and quiet your after, you wont be disappointed, I would stay here again, positives far outweighed the negatives.

Did not realise that there was no lift at this hotel. My partner was in a wheelchair because she cannot walk much after a stroke. We checked in and were put on the first floor only to find that there was no lift and the room was at the bottom end of a very long corridor. I had to carry a wheelchair upstairs and downstairs when we went out. Maybe I should have complained straight away, but I thought it wouldn’t be so far down the corridor. Once you have moved into your room it would be a hassle to change rooms. But interestingly we left each day by wheelchair and returned by wheelchair and not once did reception offer a ground level room. On top of that there is no lounge area, although there is a grotty run down Toby nearby, full of local dead legs. We ate breakfast there but I was given dirty cutlery that looked like it had been taken from somebody’s plate. I have stayed in lots of nice premier inn,s but this was a let down. One final point they don’t clean the room while you stay because of Covid, I personally think this excuse is wearing thin and insulting your intelligence. I must sound like victor meldew but I am fed up.
