We had been invited by friends to Frinton Cricket Week. This is usually great fun and a somewhat boozey affair so we needed somewhere to stay overnight. We booked the four posted bed in the top room with glorious sea views. We arrived at about mid-day and parked up on the grass lawn car park in the blazing sun. On... More

We agree that this hotel could do with some updating and with it would have achieved a very good rating. We were made very welcome indeed and enjoyed our night stop. The hotel is just a short walk into Frinton and our large room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The full english breakfast was outstanding and the... More

The guests that have written positive comments makes... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night on 28th July, whilst visiting friends in the area. At £125 for the 4 poster bedroom, this was absolute top dollar for a place that is firmly stuck in the 1970's. So much could be done to modernise this hotel and make it attractive, but I guess there is little appetite to... More

We stayed in one if the rooms overlooking the seafront and coming from London it was lovely to wake up to the views each day. A short walk to the golf club, tennis club and Connaught avenue it was a lovely long weekend and we were lucky with the weather so spent a lot of time walking along the beach.... More

We stayed at the Rock as we were attending a function at the golf club. The only benefit was that it was 2 minutes walk from the hotel and that the hotel had a fantastic view. The owner Jan was a nice lady and was waiting for us when we arrived. However it went down hill from there. The hotel... More

Not a boutique hotel by any means and lots of knick knacks - but a very warm welcome, clean rooms and good value.

A medley of friendly service, fantastic sea views, tired decor, very clean, lots of chintz, great coffee and a complete time warp.
