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

The hotel is in a great location on the sea front. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and comfortable although we found ours to be a little too small. The breakfast was varied and tasty, buffet style at weekend and cooked fresh to order on weekdays. The waitresses were very helpful and efficient. We are... More

Lovely staff, spotlessly clean rooms, great breakfast. I would highly recommend this hotel. We also had dinner in the restaurant which was delicious. Our room had a great sea view and a small balcony - which was a nice surprise! The hotel is away from the noisy arcade end of Southend, so ideal for anyone who wants the seaside but... More

We stayed for two nights. Our room was individually decorated. There is a small bar with a TV and outdoor seating looking out to sea. Unfortunately we were kept us most of the night by inconsiderate neighbours. Upon asking if they were staying another night the receptionist looked into the matter whilst we were seated Al fresco for our breakfast.... More

We have just had a 3 night stay at The Camelia Hotel. We received excellent service from the minute we checked in until we checked out. The staff were very polite and most helpful. We had a sea view room, which was perfectly clean with a lovely modern en suite. The location was fine for us, as we used the... More

Clean room. Very good wellmade food. The service was excellent. If I should say something negative it should be that the room was very hot and it was very thin Walls. I also like that it was a bit away from The towncenter.
