6.24km from Edwards Hall ParkDear reader My husband has been working in southend for the last 4-5month’s and we have been staying at this gem of a hotel on and off during that period and we have nothing but praise. I normally don’t make any effort to write reviews but when you stay for long periods of time you get a real feel for a place and how consistent it’s service truly is. The location is excellent, fabulous views over the estuary and what a sunset! Great walks along the classy seafront. But it’s the hotel and people that run it that deserve our praise. The owners are professional, warm, friendly and genuine people and take great pride in their fabulous hotel. The hotel is modern, beautifully appointed and spotless thanks to the cleaning team who are always there with a smile if you need any extras in your room or are running late when you come back to your room it’s spotless. Hotel reception. David deserves a mention. Alway a smile and never to much trouble to go the extra mile, all in a relaxed friendly and professional manner. Josie and Johnathon are The double act at breakfast, helpful always polite funny witty and nothing is too much trouble, a wealth of entertainment awaits you here! and the breakfast is great too, as is the consistency of all the food We love staying here. And cannot recommend it highly enough.
