    No fuss approach, staff was there if you wanted them, other than that they left you alone. Nice clean modern room. Breakfast was good. Good location on the seafront away from the buzz, but walking distance if you wanted it.

    Superb

    We had a most comfortable stay and enjoyed dinner on the night we arrived. The staff were excellent and helpful. We had trouble finding the hotel mainly because of the road works in town and it was dark when we arrived but it would have hleped had the hotel's name been more prominently displayed. Parking was not a problem.

    There was nothing we did not like. As stated, we had a very comfortable stay.

    the breakfasts were very good,the rooms cleaned every day,a very relaxed hotel, we were in the annexe, which was fine a really nice hotel which we would not hesitate to use again -well done

    we would have liked the windows to open a little wider as it was very hot at night.

    We were only staying for a weekend break and did not spend alot of time in the hotel but had a very nice (compact) room with a fabulous sea view and it had all the necessary factilities, including an iron and ironing board, which you rarely find, even in the big chain hotels! Staff were very friendly, from a very warm welcome right through to checkout and includind the (often ignored) cleaners. Would definitely stay again.

    Only one small complaint, the bed in our room could do with a new mattress, it is a bit lumpy

    Fabulous

    - The room was lovely - Stayed for 2 nights and the room was cleaned on the next day so was happy about that - Bit on the small side but had everything we needed - Was in a nice quiet location

    - Stairs to room were quite steep - Doors seemed to bang with wind, could hear other peoples doors - Could hear upstairs walking around and heard toilet flush early in the morning - (Was in a nice quiet location) but was quite far to walk, my feet are still hurting me and I'm home now ! So if you like walking then great if not make sure to have your car ! - Even though the room was tidied the hot chocolate and milk I drank wasn't replaced - Breakfast was pretty basic

    Great location on the seafront close enough to the center of Southend but far enough away from the noise, The food in the restaurant was superb and the breakfast the best I have had for a long while. The free parking was great so was breakfast and the staff.

    staff, breakfast and free wi fi all very good.

    Room was a bit cold the first night, the boiler was fired up the second day, (although I prefer a cooler bedroom than my wife) so no probs.

    The rooms were advertised as Excecutive Double rooms. In fact they were very small and not at all executive. I paid extra for them as my boss was also staying and he was not happy with the choice at all. A few doors down is the Rosalyn Beach Hotel which is cheaper and many times better.
