Positive Reviews

Popular breakfasts and good customer service

Reviewers were impressed with the friendly, obliging and attentive personnel who made check-in hassle-free and routinely went the extra mile to ensure guests had a pleasant stay. Diners expressed positive opinions about the continental and full English breakfasts, often saying they were worth paying for.

Great location right by the sea

The location of this hotel at new premises on the eastern end of Southend promenade was a hit with guests as it put them right by the sea for beaches, bars and seafront attractions. Guests also liked the way it was just a gentle stroll from the town centre packed with dining options and shopping. Public transport links were reportedly good with bus stops nearby and easy access to the railway station offering regular services towards London.

New generation rooms with views were well-cleaned

Guests loved the comfy premium beds and often said the spacious, new look rooms were spotlessly clean and well-appointed with a fresh feel. Visitors also admired the views of the sea and nearby Southend Pier from many of the rooms.

Negative Reviews

Mixed views on parking arrangements

Even though the on-site parking was a handy bonus for most drivers, some were critical of the way guests had to pay to use it. However, the cost was reportedly reasonable.

Room temperature grumbles from some quarters

One drawback of this new-build property was that some rooms were prone to becoming stuffy, according to several critics who found it tricky to regulate the room temperature at times.

Occasional Wi-Fi issues

The free Wi-Fi was a bonus for travellers, but there was some criticism of the way the free service offered sluggish speeds with the fastest speeds seemingly set aside for those who paid to upgrade to the premium service.
