Stayed over night before flight.A pleasant professional welcome, a clean comfortable room and a nice meal in a restaraunt with a fantastic view of the airport. Left the car safely in the car park and again on our return we were greeted warmly and made to feel as if we really mattered.

Stayed here for 1 night for business. Very good hotel and staff were very friendly. Arrived at 940 pm on a Sunday evening and headed straight to the top floor bar for a drink and something to eat and was suprised it was buzzing. Flat screen tv on and music on. Food and drink served to 11 pm. Rooms were... More

This was the second year we have staid here, whilst attending a function in Southend. The staff are friendly and efficient. Rooms well equipped-small gripe was the bins weren't emptied and ring from a tea mug wasn't cleaned of the table. Plenty of spaces to sit and chat with friends, whilst watching what little activity there was on the airport.... More

I stayed here with my wife as we needed to be in Southend. I have to say the staff were very keen and enthusiastic. We upgraded to an exec room and the view of the airport was fantastic (you have to like planes to enjoy it!). We had dinner in and the food choice was extensive, the prices reasonable in... More

I cannot praise the staff at the hotel highly enough. Efficient, cheerful, friendly and helpful on every visit, at every level. Food in the restaurant (breakfast & dinner), overlooking great views, was, without fail, well-presented... More
