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

Park Inn overbooked despite us booking in December, moved us to Skylark. Upon arrival, we had to refuse two rooms because they were cigarette smoke filled and as one of the party is a child with Asthma, she began to cough as soon as she entered the room. The hotel quickly found us two other rooms (which wasn't hard valentines... More

We phoned up and booked for 1 double room for new years eve. The person on the end of the phone was terrible. She seemed as though she didn't want our custom at all and was rude and unwelcoming. I gave my credit details as asked for PAYMENT for our room but as we later found out on arrival that... More

Room basic but spotlessly clean. Bed really comfy and shower amazing. Room smelt damp and musty but perfect for overnight stay. Right on top of Saxon Hall where our function was. Not much atmosphere but good value for money.

Worst place I have ever stayed-dirty rooms, no wifi, no customer service but they do have bed bugs! Staff able to tell me it was a stage 2 infestation but not how I could make a compliant. Don't book!

This is my second time at the Skylark, both times being for one night for a business meeting. My check-in was immediate, professional and friendly. I stayed in the Aviation wing which was in the main building above the bar and restaurant. The room was modern, very well equipped and decorated and spotless both in the bedroom and bathroom. All...

As most of the hotels were booked in the southend area I was forced to choose the skylark even though the reviews were not so good. How lucky were we, we had the restaurant to ourselves, ok the receptionist was also the bar maid and waitress, but it worked to our advantage. We were served drinks, our order was taken,... More
