After a very long day I arrived to a great welcome. .... comfortable room. Nothing better. The restaurant at the top floor looks great with a fantastic view over the airport. That's where the good ends. Unfortunately everything I wanted on the menu was finished. ...... 8pm on a Monday night! Chose a simple pasta that lacked flavour. Breakfast probably... More

Very nice, brand new and spotless. A pleasant bar with a really good view and they serve good quality bar meals. A club sandwich @ £8.50 is both tasty and perfect for two. Bedrooms are good, comfy, spacious and very quiet.We slept beautifully. However even in the competitive world that we live in hotel operators, such as this one, just... More

Room was very nice.. Nothing was too much hassle for the receptionists as we had a few problems with a bunch of lads being very drunk and loud next door.. Was nice to have a room which overlooked the airport and to also be upgraded because of the problems.. Would recommend and would go again

We stayed here for a wedding event. All was extremely well organised and attention to detail was excellent. Staff were outstanding! Kate and Sue in particular went out of their way to help and support us. The food was great quality and much better than other wedding meals experienced recently. Great experience - we would highly recommend.

My husband and I had to stay in Southend for 4 nights. We found the hotel staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The restaurant and bar overlook the airport and we couldn't believe how quiet it was. Our room was clean, large, modern with a real wardrobe. Ample car parking for £5 per day and... More

You couldn't get closer to Southend Airport unless you camped on the run way. The view of the airport from the hotel restaurant is breathtaking but not noisy. In fact the entire hotel is one of the quietest hotels I have stayed in. Its easy to find on the outskirts of Southend. A gentle warning, do not venture into Southend... More
