Stayed here for 1 night and would definitely stay again. We had a family room in the annex and it was spacious and clean. Good powerful shower and tea and coffee making facilities in room. The spare bed for our child was a proper single bed. Breakfast was hot and the usual full English breakfast. If you wanted fried had... More

We spent a lovely weekend here in early May. The room was comfortable, clean and pleasant, but the view brilliant! We enjoyed the trip so much we are returning in few weeks to round off the year. Hopefully we will be back again next year too.

Stayed for one night for a family wedding. We had room 14 on the top floor with a beautiful sea view. The bed was very comfortable. The shower was excellent and everything was very clean. Breakfast was excellent, lovely sausages and bacon and as buffet service can have as much as you want! There's a car park to the rear... More

We returned on Monday after spending three nights at this Hotel. We had a sea view room, which was clean and comfortable. The bed was rather low but comfortable, there were two armchairs and coffee tables by the window. Our daughter and husband and his parents also had sea view but not the comfortable chairs we had. Our room was... More

Stayed in the hotel for a night to visit family in Southend. Right next to the beach and is a stones throw from some great restaurants and bars. The hotel itself is a lovely family run establishment and the receptionist and bar manager were happy to chat and give tips on places to visit. Really happy with the room and... More

Arriving at the hotel was very easier but the parking was much to be desired. Along the left hand side of the building down a small road lays the general car park. Now to be fair, it's free and it's behind the hotel but it's also behind all off the other properties on the sea from and the garages which... More

I have been on a road trip holiday with my two daughters aged 17 and 14. We have stayed in several B&B s but this one takes the crown. Its spacious, clean and comy. WIFI was available at no charge. Staff was very friendly. The restaurant has good quality food and there is something for everyone's tastes. Breakfast was lovely... More

I've never been a fan of the cookie box hotel and always try to find a nice boutique to visit when I'm traveling. A colleage lives in Thorpe Bay and recommended this as a nice base while there. A lovely sea view and within walking distance of the wharf. Not much to complain about there. Would certainly stay here again.

Just spent a week in what we consider to be the best hotel in Southend on Sea. Special thanks go to Jamie, Abbie, Laura, Doreen and the staff who made our stay spectacular. The accommodation is first class. Spotlessly clean and tidy, very well serviced room (number 23), the most wonderful breakfast you could imagine and the restaurant is beyond... More
