My sister and I spent one night, Friday 31st August 2012. On entering there was a distinct musty smell. We were given our key and told where Room 2 (twin bedded room with a garden view) was. As we went into the room yet again the musty smell was terrible. The room was dirty, the curtains, not only dirty but... More

I only stayed here one night in October 2011 having attended a wedding down the road near Rayleigh As 90% of my time here was sleeping, I can only be quite brief and say that my only criticism was the shower would not stay in its holder properly!

Starting with the positive, the position is perfect. It is in such a pretty street (close to both sea front and shopping ccentre) but still quiet. Indeed the exterior is very appealing - apart from the obviously naff fake flowers positioned in one of the front windows! However... We had a bad start when the double room we had booked... More
