The hotel is right next to the airport and run way. It caters for business and leisure especially families. The hotel is about 10 minutes drive to the beach and city centre. The rooms are clean and the restaurant is first call really enjoyed the food. Would recommend, enjoy.

Arrived at 17:00 and was met by a friendly lady on the front desk. I'd joined their IHG rewards club the week before, and was pleasantly surprised when I was told I had an upgrade and I had free internet access. Room 301, overlooking McDonald's, but I didn't plan to be looking out of the window much. Room was very... More

A friend came to southend to visit me and we met them at the hotel. Very very clean!! Happy staff. Excellent manners and there room was worth every penny. You'd never know you was next to an airport unless u looked out the window. Makes me want to stay there!

Stayed for two Nights. Very clean and nice room. Staff were professional, friendly and polite without going over the top. Restaurant views of airport were great. Breakfast was really good and again staff friendly and attentive. 2 small niggles and probably down to personal preference, but the food menu was a bit boring and the choice of draught lager limited....

Following the positive reviews on this site, my family and I decided to eat at the 1935 restaurant this afternoon. However, I was very disappointed and the only redeeming feature was the view over the concourse. We ordered bar food as the restaurant was closed but found the staff and one barman in particular rude, inefficient and unfriendly. Upon entering... More
