Great hotel, extremely clean and a lovely team to welcome and serve you. Clearly family run but with top standards throughout the hotel. Sky Sports in the bar if wanted and a great restaurant alongside. Both a restful find at the end of a long day and a perfect weekend getaway. Highly recommend!

As we have family in Southend we visit quite often, but have struggled to find somewhere to stay which has represented both good value for money and quality service. Our search is over, thanks to our recent 2 nights at the Camelia Hotel. We had a sea facing room which afforded lovely views, as well as being of a good... More

Wonderful hotel. Lovely spotlessly clean modern rooms. We had a family room (2 adults and 2 kids) and it was a lovely room. Plenty of towels which is unusual, some lovely extra touches like shampoo and shower gel provided. Not just tea and coffee in the room but hot chocolate as well.. Lovely surprise !!. The restaurant serves food to... More

Was given a voucher for a one-night stay in a UK hotel having switched energy providers. Took us ages to use it and ended up staying in the Camelia Hotel in Southend. Hotel staff polite enough and remembered that we'd be checking in late (9pm). We were offered an upgrade on arrival to a superior double at a cost of... More

Lovely welcoming staff. Great spacious family room, with TV and free WIFI. Tasty breakfast, with a fantastic selection to suit everyone. Two minutes walk from the beach and good bus service right outside.

I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights this weekend and had a really lovely time. The staff were all so friendly and could not do enough for you. They were very busy when we arrived as it was late on the Friday but an off duty member of staff named Jamie who was there came and assisted us in... More

The room was wonderful with everything you'd expect and need and the staff were so friendly and flexible. They came across as really caring if we had a good stay. You will be facing the beach as you walk out of the front door as it is on the sea road. Great location!

First things first, the service really was excellent. Everyone I had the pleasure of meeting was really welcoming and accommodating. The room I stayed in faced the opposite way to the seafront, which was just a car park- a little disappointing. However, the room was decorated very nice and was very clean. The bed sheets were a little rough and... More

We stayed at this hotel for a family wedding a couple of weekends ago. I wasn't really expecting much, but our stay was absolutely wonderful, helped mainly by the amazing girls who worked there. They really couldn't do enough for us and everything was done with a smile. We had our dinner there.....absolutely delicious, and the cheesecake was to die... More
