Everything, great breakfast, lovely view, friendly staff
I visited the Bay Guest House with my mum for one night over the August Bank Holiday. As soon as we arrived, we were welcomed by very friendly owners/staff who thoroughly looked after us. Beautiful house, very clean and would definately visit again.
We were very happy with our stay at the Bay. Everyone there went out of their way to make us feel part of a happy family. All we had to do was ask if we needed anything and it was brought to our room. If I had a reason to visit Southend again I would go back to the Bay
nice people and good breakfast
going home ha?
had a great time
Lovely room and wonderful location! Host was very friendly and helpful. I had a great couple of day and I'll certainly go back there in the future.
Nothing was too much trouble starting from when we emailed with a couple of questions before the holiday to when we were there. Everybody was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in room 5 which was ideal with our two young children. The photographs on the web page had helped to provide our youngest autistic child . The room was spotless, decorated with outstanding features and very relaxing. Tea. coffee and biscuits were provided every day as were clean towels and the bed made for us. We cannot recommend the breakfast enough..excellent consistent standard every day with a wide range to choose from. The location was perfect..not too far to walk to the town but away enough to enjoy a quiet drink on the balcony in the evening. We will most certainly be back again!
The promenade is just across the road and the walk to the pier or town centre is about 30 minutes, so a very good location. Good breakfast and helpful hosts.
Next to a very busy road and, with the windows open due to the hot weather, quite a lot of traffic noise. If a light sleeper, best ask for a room at the back, which was nice and quiet (our party had one room at the back and one at the front, so I can comment on both).
Being served breakfast and given a choice. If you did not want Full English there were alternatives. The fact i left my mobile phone charger there and it is being posted back to me FOC !
Comfy pillows, comfy beds, welcoming dining room and substantial breakfast options.
I'd booked a twin-bedded room but were given a double bed. The additional single bed option made the room a little squashed. (My daughter is 42 so couldn't expect to double up with Mum!)
The bay guest house was excellent value for money lovely room very clean and tidy. The shower and bathroom were very clean too. The staff were friendly and welcoming made you feel at ease. The location was a quiet area close to beach and about 15 mins walk to arcades and adventure island ( rides). Very pleased with the bay guest house would recommend to everyone we know.
The Bay Guest house was pleasant. The staff were friendly, would recommend as a value for money place to stay in Southend.
The put up bed wasn't of very good quality and 2 slats snapped when my daughter knealt on the bed. However the owner mdidnt want to accept any money from us to cover the cost which was very kind
The view was awesome!!
The duvet for the sofa bed was dirty.
The staff were friendly and the location was great for us. Breakfast was also good
They didn't clean our room throughout the 2 nights stay or refresh our towels
The owners are very nice people. Also very tidy rooms with great view. Full English breakfast was well prepared and nicely presented. Definitely will recommend to others.
The room was lovely, much more modern than i was expecting. The breakfast was excellent!
Could of been a little cleaner, especially the bathroom...
The owners are lovely. The room was beautiful and the view gorgeous. The breakfast was nicely presented and very good. The hospitality in this location was the best we experienced in five weeks in England.
Breakfast, staff, comfortable room
Warm welcoming clean
the view from the balcony! the large screen TV, lovely clean bedding and towels
no where to hang towels, the old bed which sagged and lacked width, bathroom mirror set far too high,no curtains to keep out early sun
The place have really good energy and our weekend was great ! Clean, friendly and romantic home, good location. Lovely porch in front and beautiful view, quiet and relaxing :) Definitely a place where we would want to come back !
in our room, the bathroom was too small and simple
Very nice place.
Everything, can not wait to come back
Nothing to dislike
We were greeted with a smile when we arrived very late at night. Our room was on the first floor, easy access with all of our luggage. It had a door to a beautiful little deck with a gold fish pond. This room is small but ideal for a short stay. Spotless with a very comfortable bed and lots of hot water in the shower. Coffee, tea and cookies in the room too. It is right on the water with a short walk to the pier, Marina and center of town. Our full English breakfast was delicious. Many thanks for a great stay!
