“All That We Could Ask For!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

We were lucky enough to hold our wedding at this venue on 23rd August 2013, Jane the wedding coordinator has been fantastic from day one and organised the day perfectly so that it went by without any problems whatsoever. We spent 2 nights at the hotel and the rooms were spotless and the breakfast was superb. All our guest have since commented on the high standard of the wedding breakfast food and have nothing but compliments. The staff are very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We're sad that our day is over as we have loved visiting the hotel throughtout the last 18 months. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel as a venue for your wedding, it is definitely value for money.

Have just spent two nights at the Rochford Hotel, as we have relations only a few minutes away.
We came last year, and enjoyed the stay.
The accommodation, staff and breakfast was excellent, although it says a fried breakfast, you can have any combination that you choose, all freshly cooked to order. The room was spacious, clean and the bath even had a jacuzzi.
A must visit if your staying for a few days is a trip to Leigh on Sea, it is like going back in time.
We will back next year, and highly recommend the Hotel.

I spent just one night here, on a stopover for a flight from Southend Airport to Berlin for which the hotel is just a mile and a half away or one stop on the train, (station is a few steps away). Most convenient. I was given room No. 1. Very cosy. Staff are most helpful and friendly. An enjoyable experience.

We stayed at this hotel on business. The Staff were lovely and very courteous and helpful. We stayed in room 18 which was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The tea and coffee making facilities were good and included biscuits and just outside in the corridor there was a coffee machine at just 50p a cup with limitless tea bags and biscuits. Only a few things marred our stay, firstly the bathroom was very dated and for some bizarre reason the toilet was extremely low on the grown like a childs and when sat on it , it leant to the left, very odd. We had, had a long drive so were tired, we opted fir room service and whilst the food was very good and excellent value the room service menu is very limited. To be fair though I requested soup for my Wife and they happily did it. The worse thing though was the rudeness of other guests who instead of gently closing doors they let them slam shut even in the early hours and it is very loud. I think maybe a notice in rooms or on doors may help or buffers on these doors, I appreciate they are fire doors but we never let ours slam. Overall though we would use this hotel again.

Just did not expect all this from a hotel that's such good value for money and so unknown... Would recommend it and I have already booked the same room and wouldn't stay anywhere else other than there if I'm in Kent...

I was a guest at a friends wedding this weekend and the Rochford was the venue for dinner and dancing. I was lucky enough to get a room paid for me so I can't comment on value for money, but the service was excellent, the staff were brilliant and the room was very clean and comfortable. I had a fight with the shower and the shower curtain loved me, but everything else in the room was good. The food was delicious and I would definitely stay again. Only down side was finding it with the SATNAV. The postcode given takes you to the wrong side of the car park but that is just a small gripe

Reviewed 7 June 2013

My wife and I visited this hotel overnight 6/7th June 2013 and found all to be very satisfactory.. Our welcome upon arrival was lovely, the room was comfortable, and the breakfast very good. The hotel does need a little 'upgrading' as our 'executive room' was a little tired with broken shower attachment, mould on the bath surround and ceiling and the blinds not shutting completely making for a rude and sunny awakening! Also the lack of 3 pin adaptors was frustrating but nit-picking aside, the experience was very pleasurable and I would not hesitate in both returning and recommending to other travellers.

Room Tip: maybe better to choose a room on the backside of hotel away from the main road.
