We like the location of the hotel, on both our stays we had sea view rooms and our next stay will also be in a sea view room to make the most of the location. We think that Southend had been improved by the redevelopment of the Hotel.
Our first stay was one night and the second two nights, our only complaint is the cost of parking and leaving our car in the car park opposite. The first stay cost us approximately £15.00 and the second £24.00. I completely understand that the car park is not the hotels juresdiction but the discount the hotel gets for its guests is a paltry one.
Extremely clean room, lovely flat screen on well, very comfy bed. This hotel has a lovely residents bar and is right at the end of the high street.You could not get a better location.
Nothing we got to check in v. early, got our room slightly upgraded, staff were lovely, tea & coffee in our room - no negatives.

Hairdrier a bit hard to use and a bit weak but worked .
Good location, nice room, nice bar, 12pm checkout
£20 premium for sea view is a bit high. No hotel car park
Your clerical provisions need improvment! The opening line of this enquiry has opened with 'Dear Ferris' Perhaps a prefix of 'Mr.' would have been wise!! Soft drinks were ridiculously expensive!
Good Security with swipe cards. Very clean and well appointed rooms. Hotel very tidy all round and in good location.
We were upgraded to a beautiful sea-view room on the fifth floor. The room was spacious, clean and the air conditioning ensured a comfortable sleep
No bad points
