I recently stayed here and thought it was very good value for money. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. I was in a very clean and recently decorated room with all mod cons. Bed was comfortable. Room wifi was adequate. The shower wasn't the best but I managed just the same. The hidden gem is the eating, I had... More

The Skylark Hotel is one of those that look good online buy not so good in the flesh. The reception staff was very unfriendly and our room was in one of the single story low quality bungalows. The smell as we entered was off-putting, in my opinion because there must have been some water damage and it was treated with... More

Stayed with colleagues for a business trip. The rooms are very big, showers are amazing. Reception staff very friendly. Sadly we did not have any breakfast because we did not have time.Thanks to all the staff and I will be coming back next summer for a short break :)

I've stayed with my husband for the weekend. Very nice, clean, large rooms. Plenty of towels and the shower was amazing. Reception staff was very polite. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Very good value for money, especially compared with the other hotels in the area. There was plenty of parking space and it was free of charge.... More

Stayed here for a family wedding, perfect venue, no neighbours to upset, rooms were clean bed comfortable staff efficient if a little impersonal. Easy parking. Outside there is aeroplane scrap yard, which is a huge bonus if your an over grown child, which I am. This has no negative effect on the hotel. Recommend if you want something a little... More

Where do I start? Reception, get a interpretor. All stay, even to order breakfast, at reception was useless. Room feels damp (130), floor feels damp, smells damp and foisty. Breakfast poor, when it arrived. Ordered two not bothering to wait for second. TV signal poor. Retuned tv 3 times. WiFi poor. Decent bathroom and shower.

I read a few mixed reviews of this hotel, but decided we would make our own mind up. We stayed over night, as we wanted to visit Southend. The room was very clean and well presented. We had air conditioning (which we didn't expect) and the bathroom was very good. In regards to the beds, I can only say that... More
