We stayed during our cycling tour and found the owners very friendly and accommodating. The room wasn't huge - but clean with efficient shower and comfortable beds. Breakfast was great. In summary, everything you could hope for in a seaside bed and breakfast!

There are not many reviews regarding solo travellers in single rooms at the Gleneagles so I feel it appropriate to write this after a recent visit. This hotel is well managed and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. I asked for early check-in and received an email to say the room would be ready as requested. This was efficient. My... More

My husband and myself have never had a break in the eight years we have been together and as we have an elderly relative live with us it is difficult to get away. We opted for a night away with a guesthouse who would not mind us turning up at 10-30pm after everyone was settled at ours for the night.... More

Stayed one night while visiting our daughter. The Gleneagles looks delightful , with its welcoming terrace cafe and pretty, colourful garden. Parking permit ( deposit of £20) is given to you so parking is free. We luckily had the space right outside hotel. ( Permit did not have to be given in when you checked out at 11:00 so you... More

Well this place is a little gem. Ten minutes walk from Southend Central Station, 5 minutes from the beach and arcades, etc, this quiet B&B boasts sea views in an ideal location. A family run business, Penny and Garry are hard-working friendly couple who source their food from local butchers and farmers and that means the breakfast is the best... More

Really enjoyed my time in Southend and had the Gleneagles recommended by a friend. It's a great affordable guesthouse with lovely easy going staff. Great location on the seafront too. And the breakfasts were delicious.

We can't thank Garry and Penny enough for the wonderful experience at Gleneagles Guest House. Although the accommodation was very comfortable and provided everything we needed including a lovely, comfortable bed and super cooked breakfast, it is the excellent standard of service that really gives Gleneagles its edge. Plus of course its location. The owners couldn't do enough for us.... More
