This is a very well kept hotel/B&B with very friendly and welcoming staff. The habitation was up to par and very clean. Breakfasts are well sufficient and tasty and their coffee was so good. The owners are very visible and gave us a very warm welcome. My kids adore them. We were made to feel like part of the household... More

Very warm & friendly welcome from the owners. Spotlessly clean accommodation. Very attractive, light & airy room. Free off-road parking. Good breakfast. Ideal location, close to the centre, but away from the noise.

Could not find fault with our stay for four days. Newly decorated rooms, spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. No request was too much trouble. A big plus was that we were able to take our small dog with us as this is a 'dog friendly' hotel. Hotel is very central. Excellent full breakfast. Can thoroughly recommend this hotel... More

Stayed here last bank holiday in May two nights. Fantastic location on the beach front. We stayed in room one after booking nearly a year in advance very nice and bright, blue skies all the time of our stay, so lucky. Loved the breakfast, the service was excellent and very friendly, can't wait to stay here again in the future.... More

I spent 3 weeks working out of Clacton and found this little gem online. From the first phone-call to checking out, nothing was too much for Roberto and Christina. The rooms were well looked after and it's location was perfect. Food was fantastic and set me up for the day. To truly make this a 5* rating, an earlier start... More
