“nice small place with great hospitality”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Stayed at the cabana just for the night on the 5th July as we travelled all the way from Birmingham and even though we came down really late, (did let them know beforehand when he told me not the watch a certain film!) Mark stayed up for us and greeted us with a smile and took us to our room. Room was basic and necessary for our needs, we didn't need anything fancy and just somewhere to rest, it was actually better than i had expected which is always good. Breakfast was beautiful in the morning, included in the price of the room and was greeted with a smile from both hosts and asked what we wanted to eat. Asked about the best places to get fish and chips and to see in the local area and they were very helpful. Left us with a funny comment as he thought my partner looked like mo farah! Would definately return, was a lovely experience :)

The mighty mo and his lovely beau. I could write reams of nice things about this couple but in the short time we met I think it best to say that you could stay friends for life with these guys. God bless you both.

We recently stayed at the Cabana for 1 night a shame we didn't have more time as we were just passing through, we found the owners very friendly we didn't pre book just turned up at 6pm Mark made us feel really welcome the house is spotlessly clean it was horrible weather but the room was lovely and warm with the heating already on tea and coffee in the room, got up the next morning to a great choice of breakfast cereals and also the cooked breakfast was fab as it was hot and freshly cooked to order, only 10 minute walk from the pier we enjoyed the shopping area really cheap shops, on the whole if we are ever passing through Clacton again we would definitely go back to the Cabana, so thankyou Mark & Catherine for making us feel at home!!!!!!!

Me and my family stayed for a 3 night weekend break and found the Cabana Guest House a very warm, friendly and welcoming B&B. The family room was warm, clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent and well enjoyed by all of us. The location is great and very close to the beach. The hosts Catherine and Mark are very welcoming and friendly, I would fully recommend this Guest House. Already have booked a return visit.

Room Tip: Rooms to the front of the house have good views of the bowling green

We only stayed one night we found Mark and Cathrine brillant hosts, the room was spotless with a good view, very comfortable. Mark was so helpfull when we arrived and help us get a parking space outside. It was my wifes birthday and Mark recommended a nice indian restuarant which was very good. Breakfast was really good plenty of everything. Having been in the trade ourselves we know how hard it is to please people Mark and Cathrine have cracked this.

Just back from a 3 day break in Clacton-on-Sea with a 2 night excellent stay at the Cabana; this wonderful guest house is well located and Mark and Catherine made us very welcome. We have been to Clacton many times before and know that in some areas it is difficult to get parking; no such problem in Collingwood Road parked up right outside the Guest House on arrival. The room was big and bright with a great view across the bowling green out to sea. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and served up by cheerful Mark who will make you feel as though you are part of the family. Would I come back - most definitely; it will be our first choice on any future visits.
