The staff on reception were pleasant and efficient are our standard room was simply but comfortably furnished. The only negative was the TV - it is fixed to the wall and you can only watch it by sitting on the bed. Problems arose on the Saturday night. Loud disco music reverberated through the hotel even reaching us on the 2nd... More

We had a very pleasant overnight stay at this hotel. Due to a function at the hotel, they upgraded us to a kingsize room on the 4th floor which was most comfortable. We had a good nights sleep and were not disturbed by any aircraft noise. We had a wonderful view over Southend. The staff were exceptionally friendly.

Fantastic stop at this Hotel, view over the airport is great, Rooms were huge with a bed you can get lost in. Food was ok, maybe a little over priced. I will return in the summer as its a nice walk to the beach front.

Whilst visiting family in the area last week, we decided to treat ourselves to an overnight stay at the airport. We booked a Superior room and were allocated room 406. The room was extremely spacious, spotlessly clean, very well appointed and enjoyed a fantastic view of the runway although we barely noticed any noise from the aircraft at all. The... More

My friend and I enjoyed an excellent afternoon tea yesterday. We had pre-booked and on arrival the table was set and we were attended by a friendly waiter. Food was wonderful. We were there nearly 2 hours and left rather hurriedly because of the car park. Didn't have time to try the 'cake of the day'. I will certainly recommend... More

This hotel was very clean and had an open feeling, no cluter. The staff was pleasant. The room while cold for me was quite interesting. While the outer wall is glass you can only see the outside from small areas in the room. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for one night ahead of a flight from Southend Airport to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. The staff were amazing, we were upgraded to an Executive Suite with a super view of the airport, the room was lovely and a brilliant start to our short break away. With an early flight in the morning we went for breakfast at... More
