We only spent one night there, but it was really good. Our room was well equipped and clean, and we received some tea and chocolates as welcome. In the morning, breakfast was very varied and we could eat everything we fancied. Besides, service was very nice and we had the chance to leave our suitcases in the hotel when we...

Our room was a great size considering we booked a petite double and couldn't fault it at all. Nice atmosphere in the bar with old decor which suited the grandeur of the hotel. My only quibble would be the...

Was on a business trip to Southend and happened to stay here on recommendation of a friend. The hotel proved to be a very pleasant surprise. Very tastefully maintained, the Bar and the Restaurant were elegant and service was top class. Staff is very attentive and food is memorable. All in all, excellent value for money.

Stayed for two nights whilst visiting friends in the area. Lots of negatives I'm afraid. When booking on-line breakfast not mentioned as an option. When we arrived in the evening after a 4 hour drive there was no parking as the hotel does not have any, it is just park on the road. An event at the Cliffs meant nothing...

I can't say how impressed with the service and afternoon tea we had today. Excellent, full selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes.
