Well, wow!!! I carefully choose hotels but the Waverley was far better than I expected, the rooms were perfect, we both had balcony rooms with beautiful views, the beds were amazing, I didn't want to get up!!!! We were allowed to check in early which made our time in Southend even better. The owners were very friendly, just wish we... More

I stayed at The Waverley during a little solo break for one night. On my way day I was contacted twice to find out what time I was arriving which I thought was nice. On arrival Lucy was very welcoming and friendly. I stayed in room 11 which was lovely - it was spacious, beautifully decorated and very clean. The... More

I booked a Budget Double Room at the Waverley Guest House so that my wife and I could attend a family function close by without the need to drive back to Sussex the same night. We were warmly greeted by the very friendly 'Lucy' and handed our key etc. I can't remember the room number but the bedroom was on... More

I am just shocked regarding the level of service from this property. I feel it was not as described/advertised. There was no sea view from our room just an untidy garden with a spot light that kept going off in the night. We were sold a standard double room not a Superior Double Room with sea view that we paid... More

Owners are friendly and offer lovely rooms overlooking the beach. Far enough away from the centre to be a little quieter but within walking distance. Excellent choices at breakfast and lovely clean, modern, light rooms.

The owners have had a refurb since my last visit and you can immediately tell a lot of hard work has been put in, the breakfast room looks amazing, this now overlooks the sea front, there are...

Glad I booked my two night stay at the Waverley. Very clean room, very clean shared bathroom which I seemed to have all to myself - no-one else seemed to use it during my stay. A really quiet place in a very lovely part of the Town. Even though I was here on business, it was a chilled environment and... More

Lucy and her team were lovely. Great rooms, great location. Not bad value. Sea view room delivered, and the roof terrace in the family room was an added bonus. Helpful staff with plenty of local knowledge and went the extra mile.
