Don't be misled by your initial impression! Reception staff quickly booked us in and directed us to our room. Lots of stairs and the corridor could perhaps benefit from a bit of redecoration. Everything was clean and tidy and the room was very spacious with a sea view. Beds were very comfortable and linen crisp and clean. The usual courtesy... More

The premier in was full over the Bank Holiday and this was a reasonable alternative. The single room I had wasn't much more than a box with a bathroom and didn't compare well with the Premier Inn I stayed in the previous night, but it was less 60% of the price and had a great full breakfast as well. The... More

the hotel is situated on the see front, we choose a sea front view room and although the weather was not very favourable the view was beautiful. The bed was very comfortable with clean fresh bedding. The ensuite was of a good size even for the bigger person such as I, The only down point was the hot water for... More

ESPLANADE HOTEL, CLACTON, ESSEX I didn't think I would enjoy Clacton as many had warned me of its 'flippant' holiday pierside nature. But I needed to visit friends nearby. I was pleasantly surprised. Sensible renovation of a well-placed hotel [still in progress but did not disturb the peaceful atmosphere] in quiet part of Esplanade, comfortable and well-managed. All anticipated good... More

I'm sat in my room (no. 25) typing this review with blue fingers because the heating has gone off again! We booked this hotel as it coincided with an event taking place here. We booked a superior room, setting us back at £190 for 2 nights. The room is large but the space is under utilised. The bed is a... More
