Received a warm welcome, though the room wasn't ready when me and a friend arrived. It didn't take long to get the room prepared to a twin room as was requested. The best thing was the tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom was alright...More

Would not recommend this to anyone. Stayed in a lot of bed and breakfasts over the country - and world and never come across anywhere so awful! Dirty sheets. Grotty, old showers. Horrible room. Go anywhere else but here!

I agree with a review above in that you get what you pay for! I often come down to Southend to visit friends & have stayed in many guest houses... This has been by far the best one yet! Basic... Yes but clean & friendly!...More

Had a really enjoyable stay and staff were fantastic. James was an affable young chap and made us feel really welcome. Will be staying again. Room was clean and in a great location.
