Difficult to get a hotel with parking in Southend near Leigh and I hate having to walk with luggage and laptops. Staff were great parking is tight but as long as you don’t mind leaving your keys they sort it out. Rooms are a little dated but it’s all clean and windows open.

Hi Lee, we don’t take payments in advance but we do pre-authorise the card provided to make sure is valid and has sufficient funds to cover your stay. Pre-authorisations are normally done within a week before date of arrival. You will still have to pay as normal the full balance on arrival. Many thanks and hope this has answered your question.

Hi Lee, I'm sorry I had not seen this on Tripadvisor, I could've replied earlier. Breakfast is served between 7am-10.30am on week days and 8.00am-10.30am on weekends. Dinner between 6.00-9.00pm every day and can be ordered at the table or leave a card at reception after breakfast if you're eating in that evening. Many thanks, Bertie, Hotel Manager
