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

We booked through booking.com, only to find that on arrival the 1st words out of the foreign receptionists mouth was you have a bargain the rates are wrong. '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... Notably the wonderful hulks of old jets adorning the grounds, plus the room was clean and had all... More

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

We stayed here for a wedding and I have to say my heart sank when we walked into the entrance - the windows (and there are a lot of them) were filthy and it stank of smoke (someone smokes a pipe!) if we had had a choice I would left straight away. However the rest of the hotel is very... More

From the outside this place looks rough, but the rooms were very tidy and very spacious. Would be good if using the airport, but for us it was a bit of a way to southend in a taxi (£10 each way) But as we were here for the Luton football match all hotels in town were booked. Had some beers... More

When we booked this hotel with my friend, we were actually a bit scared, as in pictures rooms looked quite small and after reading few reviews we were terrified! Our stay was originally booked for one night stay on Saturday, as we had really long journey we were already thinking that maybe we will talk to staff and see if... More
