Good value & breakfast
Not enough tables for breakfast, means you have to share!
Excellent quality of Wi-Fi Good bed Very good breakfast
A bit expensive Far from city centre!!!
quality of décor, furnishings etc. clean.
when I arrived there was no answer at the door. I then noticed a hand written sign saying to ring a mobile number which I did and a lady came to the door saying that she had left a message on my mobile that she had left the key under the mat for me. There was no message on my phone. Then she showed me into my room but said there had been a double booking which was booking.com's fault and as such my room was occupied so she needed to charge me extra for an upgraded room. she was very abrupt and seemed like she couldn't wait to be somewhere else, and there was no information about connecting to the free wifi. I didn't feel very welcome during my stay. no pleasantries. shame as it was a nice hotel apart from that. booking.com were very helpful in refunding me the extra charge. could have done with a towel rail in the room - nowhere to put my damp towel.
Lovely place. Enjoyed our stay.
Our credit card was charged with out authorisation from ourselves.
it was an amazing place just opposite seaview. loved it
just overnight stay for first visit to see our new great grandson in rochford but no complaints breakfast fine with cheerful service rooms spotless
nothing to fault only one night stay but fully satisfied will certainly return
Lovely guesthouse with lovely views. Eleanor and Brian were very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in room 5, excellent family room, breakfast fab, plenty of everything, very home from home comforts, we will be returning next year.
Nothing to dislike!
Extremely friendly and welcoming, perfect place to stay while visiting friends in Southend
View from the family room Breakfast was excellent The staff were brilliant
Very clean and tidy all around.
So nice view in front of the guest house.
If you go there from Southend East Station, you will have to walk over half an hour. Bus is much better. Buses stop near the guest house. I didn't understand how to watch many channels on TV.
We booked the small double which has its own outside space which was great for our dog! Owners couldnt do enough to please us- lovely clean quiet place.
Nice staff, comfy bed and clean room. Great value for money.
nothing to compalin :)
Lovely, clean room with sea view. Fantastic breakfast. Made to feel very welcome. Will definitely be going back :)
Having to come home!
room was very nice and clean
the lady who greeted me when i was checking in. when i turned up i was told in a very blunt way i did not have a room reservation and that it was either booking.com fault or mine even though i had confirmation on my phone she did not care, she did offer me a double room in the end and tried to charge me more than what my confirmation said , i paid this and then when i went out i phoned booking .com and explained what had happened and within 20 minutes this situation was resolved i went back to the guest house and the grumpy woman was there and came straight to me and refunded me the extra money i had paid again complaining that she had to do this . my opinion nice place but beware of the grumpy irish lady
The beds were very comfortable. Close to beach and a park around the corner
Shower and lack of communication
Decking area and pond feature was a nice touch. Breakfast was nice too. Very helpful friendly staff.
Parking available just behind B&B. Full English breakfast Location excellent Could accomodate my late (10pm) arrival
Room a little small, but reasonable for price.
Location, good food, staff very helpful and the room clean and comfortable
Very lovely people Comfortable bed Clean rooms
just the shower was strange!! :)
Staff very friendly
