My friend and I spent one night here during a weekend away recently. This is a lovely B&B- we stayed in a twin room which was very well presented, with a brand new bathroom (great shower!). Christine and Roberto were so friendly and helpful, both when arranging the visit, accommodating our dietary requirements and during our stay. The full breakfast... More

A truly lovely B&B in a period property with many of its original Edwardian features. Christine & Roberto gave us such a friendly & warm welcome, that made us feel at home almost straight away. The large windows in both our rooms allowed so much light in which didn't make them feel dark and gloomy. The en-suite bathrooms are new... More

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.
