Really lovely B&B in the heart of Southend-on-Sea. Good views of the sea - 2 min walk to the pier, and right in the heart of the town.
We stayed in the Trafalgar room which was beautifully decorated and very bijou. For one night it was perfect, for longer stays you might want a slightly larger room. Our room was at the back of the b&b and as it was a hot night we had the window open, which due to the central location meant it was very noisy even at 4am in the morning. At the front of the hotel I would imagine you would be excluded from much of this noise.
However, this did not cause such an issue, and the next morning we used the waterfall shower which was very powerful and really good. A small tip to the b&b is that you cannot easily avoid getting your hair wet so a shower cap would of been a nice touch.
Breakfast was delicious in the very beautifully decorated breakfast room. Lovely strong coffee and a beautifully fresh fruit salad to help yourself to. We both had the cooked breakfast and it was excellent.
Only things lacking I could think of for an overnight stay are there were no tissues in the room and no shower cap but this is really nitpicking. It is a lovely b&b, beautiful bed linen, very good attentive service, good food and beautifully decorated.
A definate recommendation if you are staying in the area.
