We were then told sorry we don't have a key for you so you don't have electric in your room at present. The bar was in the restaurant... More

I truly believe that you get what you pay for and for £95 a night, in a hotel that said it was a 4 Star, I'd expect a lot more. From the minute we entered, I knew I'd made a mistake. We were left standing at the reception, while the staff had a chat, a conversation that continued while we... More

I booked a superior room - well worth the extra thirty quid - huge room with a 4 poster bed and an air con unit - which during the lovely July weather was a must have. I'm a bit of a plane enthusiast and the room overlooked Southend airport so I was in my element, although the airport isn't hugely... More

My wife had chosen this hotel as it was just metres away from our AirParks car parking for our holiday. In term of it's location this hotel is very handy for any holidaymaker on an early morning flight from Southend Airport. The area is a bit 'odd' with the style of some buildings and feels rundown to some degree, but... More

Reason I left home without my wallet or any money, luckily i'd left my card details as a guarantee and when i explained my situation to the very nice young lady on reception she organised everything for...

The Hotel was really fine. The reception staff was helpful and friendly although the poor girl was also being the waitress in the small restaurant too. Rooms were comfy and large. Couldn't receive wifi in my room due to proximity being far away from main areas. Restaurant served very nice Steak which was totally unexpected. Downside...........well it says close to... More

I stayed here on business - but not by choice. I have to say the conference facilities are very good - basic but good. However, I stayed overnight the night before - it felt like I was the only one staying in the hotel. On arrival at reception I had to ring a bell to get someone's attention! Very B&B!... More
