We stayed here over the past weekend for a family get together. My wife and I stayed in one of the Suites and our daughter had a room at the rear of the guest house. Both rooms were very clean and comfortable. The suite was a great size and had lovely views of the sea with the addition of a... More

We were a group of 10 friends staying for one night. From the very start communication with the friendly owners was great. As we had 4 rooms reserved we paid a deposit of one room. The guest house is in a great location right on the sea front, everything is clean and good quality. Good tea, coffee and water in... More

I have been working in Southend for the last six months. For the first week I stayed in a very reputable hotel on the front and my plan was to get a flat, however on one of my lovely walks along the front I came across Pebbles and planned to stay there for a week or so until I found... More

From the time we arrived to the time we left we were made to feel welcome in this contemporary, clean and delightful guest house. Great location on edge of Thorpe Bay, attentive service at breakfast and a good breakfast selection. We couldn't find fault at all and would thoroughly recommend to others.

This b&b is fine, but possibly suffers from the rave reviews which led me to expect something special. There was nothing wrong with it, but from the reviews I was expecting something out of the ordinary (e.g. free bottle of water, nice toiletries, tissues and toothmugs) whereas this was just a good plain, nicely decorated b&b. The breakfast is good,... More

Very impressive all round at great value. We had a room overlooking the sea which was an uninterrupted view and comfortable chairs were provided on the enclosed balcony. Little touches like the high quality hair dryer and excellent tea and coffee making facilities made the stay all the more enjoyable. Then there was the breakfast, a great choice of just... More

Lovely place. Really comfortable with excellent rooms. Nick and Kerry were great hosts and you felt as though you were visiting their home. Breakfast was really lovely, homemade granola and porridge or a fry up, served to you by smiling efficient staff. Great location too. Quite a bit out of the way from the main attractions but that suited me... More
