Lovely hosts, room was lovely and warm, beds comfy, what more can you ask for. Dogs welcome at a small extra charge. Free Wi-Fi that works. Just a very short walk to the pier and sea front. It doesn't come better than this at the price. Recommend to all.

The rooms are beautiful, the owners are personable and Clacton is perfect to just relax and be a Brit. Short distance from the hustle and bustle of Southend, but the perfect seaside town for those unable to walk too far

Small distance to the beach and great breakfast (orange juice, cafe, cereals, and english breakfast). The celing of the room not clean, full of spider's webs. In just one night I saw 4 spiders, quite big.

We parked our rather large car, at the back of the guesthouse with no problems and was greeted by the owner who was very friendly and accommodating. The place was spotless and our room had a sea view which was a bonus. Literally a few minutes walk to all the restaurants and shops, and the beach over the road.....perfect! The... More

Perfect position just across the road from the beach and pier and a short walk to the town. Parking for guests meant we didn't have to worry about our car. We felt welcome straight away, checked in and had our heavy bag carried to our room on the top floor (room 6). The ensuite room was bright and airy and... More

Going on past reviews we looked forward to the helpful service. Arrived at 11.30am to find door closed and no answer to the bell, knocks or phone. Came back later after street parking (two hours maximum). Eventually at 3pm someone answered the door. We had been told there had been a management change and that the lounge was no longer... More

We stayed in The Sandrock at the end of June and found out we were the very last customers of Gill and Paul as they had sold The Sandrock to new owners. Gill and Paul were both very helpful and Paul carried my wifes bag up to our room. The house itself is old but it has bags of charm... More
