Stayed here for just one night. The hotel is just outside Southend and directly on the seafront. We had wonderful views across the Thames Estuary. The room was fine for one night and our only issue was that the heating made the room really hot and we didn't find a way of turning it down. We had a late afternoon cod and chips in the bar area which was first class. The bar area and restaurant were very cosy and we could have happily stayed there all evening. It was a pity we were not staying longer as the rest of the menu looked good too and we would have liked to try more of their food. The staff were friendly, well dressed and helpful. We had the excellent full English breakfast plus more breads, cereals, cold meats etc. were on offer. Sitting in the restaurant and looking out over the sea added to the breakfast experience. If we come to the area again we would definitely stay here.
wonderful experience. Go out with family to Victoria park and shopping centre and the beach was such great place to behold with lots of children playgrounds, pubs and eating places. Will like to visit soon
Over all it was a lovely stay but my room was so called executive I don't how they come to that conclusion . I had a four poster bed but in my eyes four skinny bits of metal and a bit of ripped net round a double bed ( not king size ) doesn't make that a four poster bed . But it was clean and comfortable and I would stay there again .

"Lovely old hotel, management not quite so lovely"
We checked in on Sunday evening, tired from a drive. We remarked that there was a restaurant adjacent. The women at the desk remarked dourly that there was, but it was closed. She did not offer any suggestions so we made our way into town and found a nice pub. The next day we explored the grounds, which are very pretty. Walking in St. Albans is a little tricky. The streets are crowded, dark at night and narrow, however driving at night is almost impossible. We loved the town, the Velarium, the parks and the Cathedral.
