We had quite a few issues but will keep it short....I booked 2 rooms for this Hotel and on arrival we were allocated rooms nowhere near each other which wasn't too much of a problem but would have been nice to have had rooms near each other than in separate buildings. We found the rooms were smelly, foisty, basic, noisy... More

My girlfriend and I stayed one night after retuning to Southend airport from Venice. We arrived late and had to walk there, which took a while because you have to go right the way round the airport, but it didn't take too long. When we arrived the staff were very friendly and we were given out room speedily. The room... More

'That was not our problem & did not need to know that' we had been overcharged by £5 for breakfast but they rectified that. First impressions on arrival was reception area clean... More

This was our second stay at the Skylark and we returned as the executive rooms have a balcony, air conditioning and heating, a decent bathroom with shower and they provide soap and shampoo in large and easy to use pump action containers. We like the fact that guests in Executive rooms are given bathrobes and slippers. To be fair on... More

There were lots of things we enjoyed about our stay.... the weird motel airport setting (we booked because the rest of Essex was full, and this was the only place in the area we could find, plus the recent reviews were encouraging...

We stayed one night for a wedding. All the staff we encountered were from Eastern Europe and had no professional polish, either when we arrived or at breakfast the next morning. The room was clean and the bed comfortable, but the bathroom smelled from an unfinished joint of the WC soil pipe. The dead spider in the bath put me... More
