I liked the location.
I did not like the creaky bed which creaked every time we moved. The ensuite was so small my husband had a job moving round in it. The toilet seat was loose and moved every time it was used. The room was very small for a superior room and light left on all night for hotel sign was not good as it lit up our room. Shower enclosure needs painting and rubber seal was falling off of the surround. Kettle kept turning itself off so had to watch it constantly. No hand soap in container so left top off and it was refilled next day. Only couple staying on second day so breakfast items were quite sparse. Would not stop here again
Room sea veiw
Stayed in december but felt the room could have been a little wamer
it was cosy, comfortable, friendly and located opposite beach,, bus close by
The window edge was damaged allowing cold breeze in and heating was all nright bathroom too small they never responded to our email of complaints and did not refund for cancelled nights due to these problems
My husband likes the fudge in the hall!
We liked everything and were on a return visit.
Nothing not to like.
very nice room . the person who welcomed us was so helpfull and made us feel very welcome.
to improve it would of been great to be able to have a area where you could return to to have a drink ie a bar and lounge and it would of been nice to have a cooked breakfast. but very please with our stay and would return.
A lovely hotel - very clean and comfortable. Loved the continental breakfasts.We had a very nice room at the front with a sea view and balcony.
Nothing - everything very nice
Only stayed one night, would be very pleaed to stay again.
Overall a very pleasant experience.
Lack of customer service, poor breakfast (very sparse) rooms not cleaned properly, rooms noisy due to window fittings and not glazed properly.
Beach front location.
Tiny shower room. Not the best breakfast.
i liked the sea front and the bolcony was excellent
i dident like the shower it was to small .
the ambience, the breakfast and friendly staff.
Next time we would like a larger room. We booked quite late when the smaller room was the only one available.
All very good had a lovely balcony room so could watch the sunset over Southend Pier and the beautiful sunrise in the morning
Having spent 4 months in Australia, it was nice to spend 10 days in the UK before heading back to our home in Mallorca. We arrived nearly 3 hours before check-in time but we phoned the owner (Mark) and he kindly let us check-in early. This B&B was our last place to stop and it was in a good location for exploring Southend and had a wonderful view over the tidal seashore. Luckily the weather was kind enough to allow us to enjoy a pizza and a bottle of wine sat on our balcony soaking up the view. There are also some good restaurants close to the B&B - "Ocean Beach" was very nice and a good Chinese ("Gold Coast") was also nearby.
The room was a bit small, as was the bed (standard double) and the en-suite was particularly small. The toilet flush was a bit temperamental. Breakfast times for Mon-Fri are 7:30 to 8:30 which are not very tourist orientated (we missed one morning - we don't set the alarm for a breakfast!)
The breakfast was amazing - really lovely surroundings and the lady who greeted us was very welcoming. Our room was clean and comfortable.
The shower pressure wasn't brilliant and the temperature variable.
Right on sea front, very friendly and helpful staff, walking distance to bistro and restaurants, excellent continental breakfast. We had a lovely relaxing 3 days and would definitely stay again.
Some road noise in front room but lovely to have the view!
Perfect location. The hotel was quiet, clean and in general well looked after.
Extremely early breakfast which isn't ideal when you go away to relax.
Clean, tasteful, fantastic continental breakfast, with a great variation.
the room was comfy, friendly and very helpful staff . breakfast good
there was nothing i did not like
Great place with great hosts. The breakfast was fantastic- as was the location.
Bathroom in our room was a bit small- but usable!
Marilyn was a wonderful and helpful host The Guest house has great views Would recommend
This was a nice clean B&B with a well laid out breakfast.
Would not book the downstairs front room again as it was by the front door and we were constantly getting woken by people coming in through out the night. Also the road was very noisy - worse when you are on the street level.
Continental breakfast was good, good size room.
