4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Great location and very helpful staff.
Lovely Georgian terraced building but maybe the dated interior will not be to everyone's taste. Location could not be better, overlooking the seafront and very central. Nice full English breakfast. Very good service.

5/5 Excellent

It was a charming English bed and breakfast. The staff was very helpful and the location was wonderful.

3/5 Okay

Good. 3/5.
The Terrace was well kept, however without parking, you have to use the local pay & display facilities - although these are reasonably priced, it was irritating. The member of staff we dealt with most was friendly and accommodating, although rather keen to get the cleaning done with the Hoovering starting at about 0930. The rooms were clean and tidy, unfortunately in room 10 (top floor, stairs only) the bed was quite hard and the shower head refused to stay put and kept drooping. The hotel had free wifi, which was nice. The breakfast was lovely, and served promptly - cereals and a "full English" were on offer.

4/5 Good

View of the pier.
Great value for money, Under five minutes to the pier or centre of town, great sea views with balcony. Good full breakfast. But spoilt by the very keen traffic wardens back on duty by 9am. Not knowing the area very well did rase anxiety with parking fees.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Overpriced and undesirable
I only stayed here because I was catching an early flight from Southend Airport and the train would have got me there late. The guy running the place very kindly stayed back 15 minutes so I could get in as the reception closes at 10pm. The guest house is very run down and basic. Certainly not 3 stars. 1 star would be generous. The bed was uncomfortable. The toilet was down the hall. There was clearly a very noisy working lady and client (maybe thats the two 'romance' reviews on here) across the hallway so journeys to the toilet were a bit awkward and I could even hear them when my door was shut. Leaving for my early taxi was a relief. In Dublin I stayed in a four star hotel with gym and high spec amenities for a mere £9 more...Needless to say I wont be staying again.
