We stayed here for a night to celebrate my nan's birthday. We had 3 rooms (2 double and 1 twin) which were all decorated nice, were very comfortable and clean. The building is really pretty from the outside with hanging baskets and flowers, and is close by to the seafront, pier and the town centre. The breakfast was yummy with... More

Yet again a brilliant 2 night stay at the Sandrock. Nothing is too much trouble for Jill & Paul. The rooms, service, meals, everything is great. Always ready with help with travel and local attraction location advice. Can't wait to return, hopefully this year with Daisy dog this time. Thanks very much.

Excellent location very close to the pier and city centre. Really clean, big room and bathroom and excellent price. Do not look further and go there. We did not have our breakfast but I suppose that it is really nice. Parking space is free of charge.

So the weather's been baking hot and it's ages since we've been to the seaside. Ended up booking The Sandrock in Clacton at a price not much more than the local Travelodge - but with a personal touch and located a stone's throw away from the seafront and pier. The important thing to remember is that this is a guest... More

We stayed here for two nights and would certainly return.It is a lovely b&b in an excellent location central to places to eat, shops and the seafront and pier. The owners very friendly and a lovely breakfast to set you up for the day.

Owners were very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely, clean and modern, and very comfortable bed! Breakfast was yummy and very generous. Ideal location - opposite the sea front and Clacton Pier, next to the High Street with all the shops and restaurants, everything was walking distance. Would most definitely stay again and recommend.
