The hotel is very central for the railway into Southend Airport or Southend itself and is in a quaint market town or Rochford. Quite near a main road, but not too noisy. The rooms are basic and the quilt alittle thin with no extra blanket or pillows in the room. You do get noise from the other rooms, hairdryer, TV but not too bad. The staff are great, although seem to be run off there feet at busy times, as when I stayed and we filled the hotel with wedding guests. Breakfast time was too busy and with only one member of staff they were stressed. we kept running out of bowls, coffee,( which was not that hot), juice etc. The cooked breakfast is outstanding, so stay just for that, you will not be disappointed. The room facilities where ok, carpet a bit threadbare, and the milk in the carton things tasted awful, like sterilised milk!! Our towels smelt of bleach, which was not a good thing either, and having sensitive skin, I had to buy one . But overall, excellent value for money, and would recommend it.

Room Tip: The rooms are quiet small but we paid a bit extra for a family room and had loads of space plus a se...

Found this place by accident, it's a gem. Reasonable priced breakfast was included. The Staff are friendly, they can't do enough for you. Food was all home made, the room was large, clean & modern, with free wifi. We didn't want to leave. Highly recommend.

This hotel is VERY cheap for what you get. A double room with wi-fi and breakfast is only £58. The room is lovely (the bathroom is a little dated) and there is even a coffee machine and biscuits available. have stayed many times great hotel!! Would highly recommend

Stayed here for 2 nights. Staff were great, very helpful and friendly. It's in a good position right in the middle of Rochford with free parking. Room was great, clean, warm, very comfortable. Tea making facilities in room but it would have been helpful to have a plug socket for the kettle by the table where the tea things were. The bathroom needed another mirror and we felt that a different shower head would be better as there was very high water pressure and it was a bit savage. Fantastic breakfast but they coffee was cold on both mornings. Overall, good value and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Go for a suite.

Stayed for one night in the Rochford Hotel in order to catch a flight the next day. Very handy for the airport. Rooms were great, very clean and of a good size. Breakfast was lovely, cooked to order fry up and other choices of cereal and yoghurt etc. Staff were very helpful, our toilet did not flush and he problem was sorted within 5 mins. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Arrived last night for a 1 night stay. Lovely modern hotel only downfall is its located almost in a pubic carpark. Staff lovely and friendly, spotlessly clean. We were in room 7 which was on the bottom floor. The walls we very thin and we were next to the bar, we could hear the bar music through the wall, not to much of a problem as was turned off at 11pm and man at front desk did offer to turn it down. I think personally a higher floor room may have been better. All in all though very nice and breakfast was lovely. Thank you Rochford Hotel.
