Me and my family stayed here for a short visit of 2 nights, 3 days. It's about 10-15 minutes from Southend Central station and is located next to a bus stop. There's even a McDonalds opposite and is located 5 minutes away from airport and airport station. Staff was very helpful and friendly. They were even kind enough to check for playing cards for us. There was no hassle whatsoever, everything was convenient. We stayed on the third floor so we got a room overlooking the airport with a very nice view. The only concern we had was that there was a pacifier left behind, probably by a previous visitor, indicating that perhaps the room wasn't cleaned thoroughly. All other surfaces and furniture were clean and we were even provided with antibacterial surface wipes upon arrival. Food was lovely at the 1935 restaurant especially the Sunday roast dinner and desserts. Overall we found the experience enjoyable and will recommend this hotel.

All the staff at reception were extremely nice.  One of our 4 rooms were not ready.  The rooms were large enough, very spacious and clean. We were on the 3rd floor which was a shame as the windows do not open and it was a really hot day!  There was air conditioning but I do not like to use it.  Only one of our rooms had a small fridge - not as advertised. The rooftop restaurant is a really nice spot to chill.  Breakfast is also served there.  We felt that the staff were keen to get us moving on after we ate.  It is not an ideal spot if visiting the beach/town unless you don't mind driving or catching a bus.  Parking isn't free for hotel guests which is weird.  We would stay again but it's unlikely to be our 1st choice.

The room was very clean and had no problems at all. Will definitely be staying again. It is a bit pricey for a room, but the room size and services make up for it. Didn’t hear any noise from the other rooms and the bed was comfortable

Room very quiet , staff brilliant. Carpet grubby , table on 4 floor dirty and the couch up there is extremely dirty. Carpet grubby in room found a false eyelash side of bed. Tap control fell off. Would like more tea and coffee and the coffee in dining room had changed it was much nicer before. I had cancelled and rebooked found with breakfast same price if I hadn’t of had breakfast included would have been disappointed with the room. I have stayed before and the rooms vary Parking charge is terrible and needs looking at should be included. When we go there which is 3 times a year we always get asked have we been before sometimes we get an upgrade sometimes we don’t some rooms are deffinetly better then others. I don’t like to see all the dirty trays outside the rooms all day. Our door was left open after room service one day.
