Booked at the last minute and very helpful. Jan the owner is wonderful always on hand with great knowledge of the area. The hotel is great, a superb Victorian building with lots of original features. We loved it and it lovingly cared for by the owner and her staff. If you want minimalistic modern this is not for you. The... More

We were made very welcome from the moment we stepped in! The bedroom was beautifully set out for our lovely of 2 adults and 2 children. The beds were very nicely made with crisp white sheets. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order, lovely selection of juices and an endless amount of toast offered with Tiptree jams and marmalades. Lovely,... More

We stayed a night and were very pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed our stay. Certainly the surroundings are dated a mix of 70's and Victorian wood panelling but all rather welcoming and perfectly comfortable. Our room was certainly quite 70's but the bed was comfortable. the room was. clean with a marvellous sea view, nice comfortable chairs altogether very... More

We decided at the last minute to stay at the Rock Hotel. We could hardly believe our luck ! The views from all the windows are simply lovely. The two rooms we had, had very comfortable beds, and all the basic amenities we needed. This is not a super fancy, updated hotel - rather it is a charming throw back... More

So having decided to go down to the coast last minute we knew we were going to have a bit of trouble finding somewhere to stay overnight and to also squeeze 5 of us in one family room. As soon as I called Jan nothing was too much trouble she had a family room for us and was happy to... More

We went to a friends birthday bash and decided to stay overnight. There is only one hotel in frinton and I knew when I phoned up to book the owner Jan was quite a character. I read the reviews on here and thought it wasn't too terrible. I think the owner is so nice they don't want to hurt her... More

We stayed at this gem of a hotel recently, and wish we had discovered it before. Lovely clean bedroom with masses of storage space and a large window for a great sea-view. The ensuite was a bit cramped, but fully functional so no problem. The manager is a delightful lady and very hospitable. Nothing is too much trouble either for... More

Delightful family-run hotel with a very warm welcome. Delicious dinner and breakfast. Cosy lounge bar to relax. Beautiful seaviews and an unspoilt quiet seaside town. A real gem of a find! We will return!

Been staying here for years and after a couple of years away it was lovely to find it just the same - only better. You can't beat the location, the room had been refurbished with comfy beds and linens, and the welcome from Jan, Barry and Ted was as warm as ever. The Rock will forever be one of our... More

The Rock is a a late Victorian building located on the seafront. It is family owned and is a late Victorian building with many of the original interior fitment still intact. The landlady is friendly, down to earth and approachable as is her chef. The hotel, Teddy, loves lots of attention and meeting people too. Some of the rooms have... More
