Cobham Lodge Hotel B&B

Reviewed July 17, 2013

I went on a weekend break originally for a spiritual development taster. This is a yearly event
in April I believe. I wasn't impressed by the surroundings but the general vibe and staff are
just so down-to-earth and friendly, even the cook is so smiley with a lovely kind nature that
I decided to return in May. You get value for money as breakfast is pretty good, because its
a mile or so from Southend you also get peace and quiet which is welcome when you want
a decent sleep at the end of a full day. I even had my birthday champagne chilled for me
in their kitchen, I felt quite at home. Beach is near and Westcliff station about 10 minutes walk.

Don't go if you are looking for modern or luxury but for staff or value for money, this would suit.

Room Tip: Rooms on South first floor view of sea in distance. Quiet.place generally.

This is a quaint budget B&B with few frills
A little dated but its all in place
The staff are brilliant, very helpful and eager to assist
Home cooked food from a set £4.99 menu...you cant knock it
Dog friendly and a nice big rear garden to sit and relax in the sunshine
Literally a two minute walk to the beach down a slight incline
On street parking
This has to be a serious contender if your working on a tight budget and require somewhere central to town but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet

Room Tip: Sea views at the front of house

Midweek break 11th and 12th June 2013. We stayed in room 4 which has recently been refurbished. Room was clean with a double and single bed and big free view TV. Nice see view. Staff very helpful nothing too much trouble. Yes its a bit dated but its an old building which has kept its charm so bear this in mind if you like modern. Great value for money superb breakfast. A fair walk to town centre about 20 to 30 mins. Would i go again, yes I would

I had read the reviews and thought this could be a mixed bag. I stayed in the room with the Sea View (shame it was a miserable November morning), and yes it is a quirky room. Fabulous to have a TV area with a sofa and a view, the decor was ok, the bathroom was odd but totally functional and clean. My bed was exceptionally comfortable, the central heating kept me nice and warm. Parking is in the street but I had no trouble there. The economy of their charges is incredible, I booked two rooms, one for me and one for a couple plus their dog (dog friendly hotel) and with a full breakfast the cost was £100 for it all! Incredible value and I have to say the breakfast was superb, served with friendliness and a smile. Staff were very welcoming. No it is not pristine but it has character, fabulous looking house and I recommend it as long as you do not want standard corporate facilities and surroundings, but if you are looking for something that offers character and economy, you must stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 2, this has a lovely sea view.

The cost was £70 for twin room with ensuite. Check in was very efficient, all detail was accurate and the receptionist friendly and polite. The room was dated, workmanship and fixtures shabby, but all appeared clean and every thing worked. Hotel bar had nothing on draught so cans were the only option which was slightly disappointing. Breakfast was enjoyable, I was surprised how quickly it was served considering the same young lady was taking orders, serving and clearing tables as well as checking customers out on reception...multi tasking excellence!! Check out was treated with the same efficiency as check in. If you want to impress a potential wife DO NOT bring her here, if you want a few nights out in Southend and want a cheap base to operate from this is ideal.
Thanks Cobham.

Room Tip: Room 7 has a bath in the ensuite but no shower.

A big thank you to all at the Cobham Lodge Hotel. A quaint, charming place with the friendliest staff you could ever hope for. Breakfast was very good and the hotel ideally situated. How on earth they can manage to be this good, considering the madly cheap prices they charge, is still something of a mystery to me.
