Went with my two daughters to Southend for the weekend to start off the Easter holidays. Arrived a lot later than we intended and the stated check-in time but nonetheless the owners were very friendly and accommodating. They explained they had just reopened after a refurbishment and our room and the dining/breakfast room had that fresh, clean look to it.... More

It was a last minute booking but stayed here for 2 nights. Nice and clean room with a great view of the sea front. Room was a good size and plenty of facilities. Good service from the owners and a lovely breakfast both mornings.

We arrived, early but was not sure what time check in was, but the owner was just so welcoming and friendly that being early was not a problem at all. They were so friendly and very knowledgable of the area. Our room was perfect with a calming and relaxed feel and fantastic view. Breakfast was included and it was perfect,... More

We stayed just for one night but wished we could have stayed longer. There are new owners who are really friendly and welcoming. We had a lovely room. Room 5. Excellent breakfast. Check out the sausages they are yummy. Will be staying there again if we are in the area.

I recently stayed here overnight. The owners ( who I believe are new) were very friendly and welcoming. The room was a nice size,clean and comfortable. There were areas that possibly need a little tlc (bathroom door would not shut properly and en-suite shower doors coming off runners) but it suited what we wanted after a night out. The breakfast...

Several years ago I was living in Southend for work and was lucky enough to call the Waverley my home. I had a superior room that, while looking out the back of the building and not providing the prettiest of views, was quite comfortable and had all of the amenities I could have needed. Coffee and tea service and an... More

We stayed here just for one night after a friends birthday party. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely and lively owner, so very welcome. We were coming back later but she gave us our key anyway. We were right at the top, and had a room that looked over the back garden. It was a nice size, and... More

I stayed at The Waverley Guest house for 2 nights and loved every moment of it. I stayed in the double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and it was very clean and tidy. The family owned guest house is somewhere that my partner and I will be returning to. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and I cannot fault it.... More
