If this place could have been any better, i would think i was at my own house. These people treated us like we were family. We had a few problems like when you go anywhere but they were able to satisfy all our problems quickly and efficiently you could not ask for any more. I spent 3 weeks with these...

We stayed in this hotel back in August. The hotel looked very old and the car park had limited parking spaces. We stayed in a room at the ground floor, the noise from the bar area and upstairs were very loud, we could hear every movement of people from upstairs. Although it was reasonably clean, this hotel is lack of...

Arrived here today for overnight stay. Upon arrival the hotel has mistakenly booked us in for the following night. However, we were asked if we didn't mind having an apartment instead for the same price. It's basically a flat with lounge kitchen bathroom and 2 bedrooms. A little apprehensive at first BUT it was great. And we were only charged...

We were made to feel welcome as soon as we had arrived. Set a stones throw from the beach but at the quieter end of the promenade, this hotel is perfect if you require a good nights sleep. The owners are really accomodating and go out of there way to make sure that your stay is as pleasant as possible....

Set in a nice quiet area. Has parking facilities. Staff very very friendly. Decor and furniture bit dated but not a problem. Breakfast very good and there is a bar. You can easily walk into Southend; no taxis needed. I would recommend this hotel.

This place really is about making sure you have your expectations at the right level. This is Southend so there is no Hilton or Intercontinental to stay at… there is very limited options for places to stay as a family, so we ended up booking a couple of rooms for 3 nights. Overall we found this place to be a...
