I stayed at the Moorings for 1 night accompanying my brother who was working in Southend. It is only a small bed and breakfast with three rooms, we had 2 double rooms but there is also a twin room, all of which are of a good size. My room was at the front of the building with a lovely sea... More

We stayed here for a family event with our four year old daughter and it was excellent. The rooms (and everywhere) were spotless with the highest attention to detail. The breakfast was delicious with vegetarian catered for and Emma had even put out special gruffalo plate and dish for my daughter and whilst we packed the car entertained her by... More

This was my third visit, I will never stay anywhere else. I had the front room, lovely big bed, great mattress, lovely fresh linen, towels etc. It was warm and cosy. The shower room is small but it is perfectly functional. The breakfast is by far the cherry on the cake. I was the only one having breakfast, just me.... More

Pretty b&b on the sea front but away from the crowds. Emma was friendly and cooked a delicious breakfast. The property has been made very attractive with a seaside theme, I would have liked to stay longer, and would love to return.

A brilliant small b&b. Lovely, fresh, seaside-style decor with immaculate room and en-suite. I explained when I checked in that I would not be able to stay for breakfast and Emma (the owner) texted me later in the day and offered to have a bacon sandwich ready for me to take away when I left- a great bit of service....

Spent just the one night with my grandniece as a special treat to the seaside. Have to say that Emma (and her parents) were especially accommodating in letting us drop off our bag at midday. Lovely comfortable bed and a wonderful breakfast. Will definitely head back to The Moorings on our next visit to Southend. Thank you!

Wonderful 4 night stay at the Moorings. Emma and John could not be nicer. Breakfast is delicious and Emma freshly prepares your cooked breakfast. Having been born in the area and returning regularly this is top of the list to stay at.

This is our third time staying at this lovely little family run B&B. Emma, who sorts out the bookings is always the height of friendliness and explains everything you need to know prior to your stay. The last time we stayed we had a problem with one of the keys and didn't have the wifi code. After an informal chat... More
