Usually I don't bother looking at reviews of chain hotels as you know what you get and there little or no surprises.
From the Outset the warm welcome at reception (just after the fire drill) was quite charming, very attentive yet not overbearing with questions, and within 5 minutes we were relaxing in the clean and tidy room. Wonderful, when I consider the lengthy drive from the Lake District to Southend. The restaurant and barstaff were excellent and even though we had limited time in the hotel due to other commitments in Southend and Rochford -I can only consider paraphrasing Lou Reed, "This was a perfect stay, I'm glad I spent it with you" Alright enough nonsense! Good hotel handy for the airport (2 minute walk)and handy for trains in and out of London ( every 20 Minutes?) spot on. I hope to be back soonMore
