Very basic but was only for one night. Twin bedded room and beds were comfortable but very poor shower. Breakfast could have been better if our eggs had not been overlooked. A bit of attention needed to front garden as very overgrown and this is the first impression on arrival - not good.

Just stayed one night. Arrived in the evening and the heating wasn't on, apparently an oversight. The room was very dated and the bedding was clean, but had seen a lot of guests. The shower needed descaling as the water sprayed in several directions, and was not very powerful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and served a good... More

Friendly service and perfectly adequate for a few days stay. The room was clean and the breakfast was good, although note you have to fill in a card the night before saying what you'd like. The lady managing the place is friendly and I'd have no hesitation in reccomending this guest house.

Very pleasant overnight stay, our room was a perfectly adequate size for a couple and the bed was comfortable. The shower in our room was pretty poor, there was also no hair drier,the television was very small. The breakfast was pretty good and the young lady on duty was very nice. I think the price paid is very fair and... More

Pluses: comfortable beds, clean rooms, quiet road, plenty of choice for breakfasts, friendly atmosphere, guests' individual food preferences noted, 5 mins walk from Greensward and beach, even shorter to shops in Connaught Ave. Paintings for sale. Not quite so plus: mini fridge would be useful addition. Frinton itself does not have a wide range of establishments serving evening meals. This... More

No special surprises here, either positive or negative. Warm welcome, and entirely comfortable stay. A densely converted house with quite a lot of B and B rooms. We had a 'family' room in the the attic i.e double bed and 2 bunks, for one night. And a view of the sea from the skylight! There were only two of us... More

We booked for one night for a seaside getaway. Our rooms (we booked a double and a twin) were clean and comfortable with TV, mini fridge (very handy for children's milk if a tad noisy) and decent bathrooms. A nice touch - outside the rooms and accessible to all guests, a nice bathroom fitted with bath and loo for those... More

We booked a family room at this place, having specified 1 adult and 2 children. We got there to find a shabby room with a double bed and an even more shabby camp bed! Bear in mind that the website we booked through (Hotels Combined) showed a picture of a half reasonable looking family room with a double bed and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An attractive Edwardian house, Uplands is situated in the quiet, timeless resort of Frinton-on-Sea. The town is renowned for its wide sandy beaches, attractive greensward and old world charm. Connaught Avenue, the main shopping street, was once known as "the Bond Street of East Anglia" and still boasts a fine array of individual shops, delicatessens, cafes and restaurants. Frinton Golf, Cricket and Tennis Clubs are nearby, all three hosting important championships. There is also the immensely popular and long established Summer Theatre, running for a six week season each summer since 1930. For those arriving by train, Frinton station is but a few minutes walk away. The towns of Clacton and Walton are both within easy reach, offering the livelier pursuits of pier and amusements. Nature lovers will enjoy the huge variety of wildlife in the surrounding countryside and backwaters, and the Roman town of Colchester - complete with a Roman castle, leisure centre and a variety of shops - is just a short train ride away! Centrally situated and close to all of these amenities, Uplands makes an ideal base from which to enjoy this peaceful spot and explore the surrounding area. Rooms are comfortable and well maintained with Televisions, radio alarm clocks and tea/coffee making facilities. We have one standard single, two single en-suites, one twin en-suite, one double en-suite and a family room en-suite. A choice of breakfasts is offered free of charge and special diets can be catered for. Children are welcome. There is ample off street parking for guests arriving by car. Free Wi-fi facilities are available. ... more   less
