“Fantastic Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

The staff at Pier View are so friendly and nothing is a problem. We had one room on the ground floor, the Lady Hamilton room and the Pier View room on the top floor. We had help getting our suitcase to the top room as it is quite steep. The rooms were nicely furnished and clean. I would recommend the Lady Hamilton room as it was easy to access and felt more spacious with high ceilings. The Pier View room has a great view but feels smaller and the window is quite small. Breakfast was very good with a nice selection and the lady even asked how our room was and how we had slept. The balcony of the dining room was great for a cup of tea in the afternoon, with nice views over the sea and pier. We had a lovely chat with the owner and he offered us biscuits as well. The location is great and we would definitely stay here again if in Southend. Thank you to the staff for making our stay a memorable one. Just one thing is the parking, with free parking from 6pm to 9am in the street and outside of that you have to remember to put money in the meter, but the staff reminded us as well.

Room Tip: Lady Hamilton room on the ground floor is easy to access and has a spacious feel.

We had already stayed at Pier View in June, and found the charm and quality of both management and rooms to be most engaging. Nothing was too much trouble.
We booked again for July but had to let Pier View down at the very last minute due to a traffic accident on the day of our intended arrival. The Findlay family could not have been more understanding and their kind attitude reinforces our opinion that that are positively 'excellent'.

Room Tip: The front rooms have the best views.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a couple nights to get away from London. We stayed in the Pier View room, right at the top of the property.Great views, pity the window was small. Breakfasts were fantastic. Great little guesthouse. Walking distance from town and the pier. Would recommend to anyone planning to stay in Southend-on-Sea.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Pier View for 4 days. Our hosts Ed and Barbara and all the staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in the Princess Caroline room which was lovely and has a fantastic view of the pier and the sea. Should we ever make it back to Southend the Pier View would be our first choice of places to stay. Once again thanks to everyone at Pier View for making our stay so memorable.

Room Tip: Princess Caroline room very spacious and has a beautiful view of the pier and sea.

All in all the hotel is lovely and as described by the other reviews on here. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
The location is also excellent, close to the seafront and also the main shopping street is about 3 minutes away. This has all the main high street stores so if you find you have forgotten anything then the shops are at hand.
Parking is also taken care of as the hotel shares a car park with a dentist surgery two minutes walk away on flat terrain so when the dentist is closed over the weekend your car can be safely parked off the road. There is also a public car park just around the corner which you pay for until 6pm and a warden told me it is free after 6.
We stayed in the family room in the basement which while having a basement location still very pleasant and both rooms of the suite have daylight. There is a playstation with games in the suite which was a surprise, and there is also a fridge and microwave. The rooms do have low ceilings though and this coupled with the fact the floors/ ceilings are wooden meant that we were woken at 1am by the people above coming into their room. Which was a shame as their noise went on for half an hour and kept us awake. I'm sure that other rooms that have higher ceilings would not suffer with this problem. I did tell the lady owner about this when I checked out as I would never write anything on a site like this that I have not mentioned during my stay. She was of course apologetic.
On a plus note the continental breakfast was by far the best I have ever come across with plenty of choice and being able to see the sea while having breakfast makes it all the better. My daughter is two and was taken care of with plenty of fresh fruit on offer, which she loves but also the night manager presented us with a box of childrens cutlery and plastic cups proving that thought really does go into everything at the hotel.

My girlfriend and I came to southend for the first time from London and booked this hotel because of the rave reviews it had and I have to say all the reviews that say its the perfect hotel...is true! I cannot fault this hotel in no way, service was excellent, location is the best you can get, the food served was amazing with variety and the owners made us feel welcomed! We will definitely be coming back and wouldn't choose another hotel in southend over it. See you soon Pier View! Thank you for making our weekend one of the best ever!
