My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights to attend a wedding. We had an executive room which was quite well appointed, even having two armchairs so we could watch TV (a nice modern slimline model) in comfort. Our only adverse comment about the room was that the en-suite bathroom had no form of heating and was... More

I think some of the previous reviews were a little harsh. Ok, location, no great. Somewhere in the middle of an industrial estate away from all other form of civilisation ! Do not forget your toothbrush! However, the hotel was clean, it has a bar and a restaurant, and I found the staff to be very friendly. Admittedily, the lady... More

I had to stay here on business as no other hotel in the area was available at short notice, which started alarm bells ringing. I can now fully understand how we were able to secure rooms. Location - Like Beirut on a good day. Clapped out aircraft at the end of the "drive" up to the airport. First impression is... More

Stayed recently for a business meeting and found the hotel to be of very good quality. My room was spotless and very well equipped, with a massive bed and nice touches like bathrobes, good tea making and free WiFi. Despite being close to the airport the room was quiet and I got a very good nights sleep. Breakfast was excellent... More

Positives are the hotel reception staff were lovely. Met two men one in the day and one in the night both were smiley, friendly and very helpful. The rooms were clean and tidy, but the carpet looked a like it had seen much better days. Negatives are the room was extremely basic £85 for 1 night and in a bad... More

The hotel was easy to find. On booking in I asked the reception staff what time breakfast was for the morning. She didn't have a clue. Told us it was written on the card slip for our room. The carpets in the hallways were badly stained. The room was clean with a large queen sized bed. Good shower and clean... More

My fiancee and I were trying to organise our engagement party at this hotel, using their restaurant as the venue. We had had preliminary discussions with their staff. We then decided to meet the owner/manager, Andreas to confirm the final arrangements. We were weary of him as he had told my fiancee on the phone he wasn't aware that it... More

We stayed at the Skylark, Southend on a Saturday night in July. I had read the reviews and was not expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised. We had an executive room with a huge super kingsize bed that was very comfortable. The linen and towels seemed nearly new and were spotlessly clean, as was the room. Other reviews noted... More
