This hotel is right by the waters edge and is ok to sit outside on a nice evening. I stayed here as it was a cheap night and on the way to my next place of work. The staff were very friendly, especially the girl behind the bar who was run off her feet but kept smiling and laughing it... More

I enjoyed the evening. The food,and was good. They could do with a few real ales. The staff were very attentive. I feel the hotel needs a bit of a makeover to bring it to a standard that it will attract families and visitors to the RSPB , Rainham Marsh and Purfleet itself.

5 of our engineers have stayed there and not one have complained to us about it being untidy or dirty. Pretty satisfied as the rooms are cheap and they have private bathrooms which make the hotel even better for people wqanting to stay. They also said the food is amazing!

Dirty, unkept, not maintained rooms, the mattresses are ancient and you can feel the springs massively, the bathroom was disgusting, just lazy or none existent cleaning, the doors have been smashed in and bodged fixed. We went to the bar area and there were drunk toothless truck drivers and a rancid homeless prostitute who was tapping everybody up. The bar... More

When we pulled up, looks like an old redundant pub that clearly needs some attention. Bar is tatty and old, staff rude. My partner went up to use the toilet and... More
