My husband and I had a wedding to go to so booked this hotel. Overall the hotel was great. It may look a bit dated from the outside but the rooms are clean and spacious. The staff were polite and check-in was quick. We even got to check in early. Considering this was by the airport it was very quite.

We stayed in Southend area for a party and have stayed at the Skylark before. This is an unusual hotel as it looks like it should be in Spain rather than Southend. Excellent rooms and some with a balcony. We had bathrobes and slippers to use for our stay and the breakfast was fresh and tasty. Plenty of car parking... More

We have stayed at the Skylark Hotel a few times before and always had an executive room which included a balcony and a view out of the front of the hotel. This time we had a fairly ordinary room and no balcony. The room was smaller than what we are used to at this hotel and the view from the... More

Stopped for just one night, thank god. Extremely dated and run down hotel with no character or personality at all...looks like a bad boys camp. On arrival the Romanian receptionist was very friendly and helpful. We arrived late but just in time for food... not bad, better than we were expecting, but certainly not good and quite expensive. Room was... More

Booked it as short journey to Tilbury and it has lots of parking space. Its kind of on the edge of an industrial estate (or so it feels), nothing really nearby so you have to pop into Southend for a meal etc (the hotel does food but its sooo empty when i was there you wouldn't hang around).

we live local to the airport. but as we had a 7am flight and did not want to disturb the family we opted to stay here. I have to say there can be no complaints. very reasonable price. great friendly staff. good food and wine and a spotlessly clean room. I would recommend this hotel.
