Have just returned to the Rochford for a couple of nights, to visit our relations.

Same standard as before, good room, excellent breakfast, and excellent staff.

The ground floor looks good after the refurbishment, due to the flooding, especially the dining area.

We will be coming back next year.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel for the first time, and with the window open you did get nois...

Such a perfect venue for our daughters wedding and honestly can not recommend it highly enough!
Many times we having driven past without really noticing.
Wedding pavilion is breath taking transforms from ceremony room (with church pews, chandeliers and white grand piano) to a delightful wedding breakfast room whilst everybody outside for photographs
From when bridal party arrived in the morning, through the service, wedding breakfast, evening reception and next morning staff were terrific, without them the day would not have run as smooth thank you Jane,Anthony and all your team.
You all made 16 August a perfect day

If your thinking having a wedding here don't drive past take a look inside you won't be disappointed.

Booked a single room but the hotel were very happy to accommodate me and my guest as that was the last room they had.

Hotel was best looking in the area and was very nice inside. Room was clean, warm and provided everything you would expect.

Breakfast was a select of the usual full English or cereals etc and was very tasty.

If your in need of a nice hotel within 20 minutes of Southend, have a look here.

Stayed overnight on business.
Stayed in room 22 very nice large ensuite room with very large and comfy bed.
Great full English in the morning- overall very pleasant stay.
Felt it was not really geared up for evening meals as there were only three of us diners and the service and food were a little hit and miss but that may have been because it was being cooked fresh!

Room Tip: Room 22 excellent

We stayed 12 nights here July/Aug whilst visiting family in Essex. We stayed in Rm 22, a lovely large room looking out onto the car park. The bathroom has a shower over the bath and is a good size, but could be difficult for elderly people to climb into. Rooms are clean and the bed is a very comfortable king size. All the housekeepers were very friendly and rooms super clean. Thank you Jody and Karen.
Free wifi and breakfast and a large screen TV in the room.......very nice. Great position in Rochford with an easy walk to local restaurants and with a supermarket very close by. Good value for money and great location.
The rooms are all on the first floor and there is no lift, but reception will arrange for help with your luggage. They were always very helpful.
The hotel is popular for weddings and there were at least 4 when we stayed. There is music until midnight which is fairly loud but apart from this the hotel is very good indeed. We will definitely stay here again.

My mum got married here last week and I can't praise the staff highly enough. We stayed the night before in a family room which was spacious and really clean. The staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The wedding went without a hitch and the staff managed a last minute problem with guests brilliantly, really took the pressure off. Jackie in particular was wonderful and kept the bride calm and relaxed. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: We had several rooms booked and all seemed to be lovely!

This hotel was really lovely. The rooms were extremely clean and had a big bathroom which was a wet room. The staff were always really helpful and even though it was quite late and a Sunday they tried their best to find us a restaurant to eat at. My boyfriend even lost £30 and when calling the hotel to see if it had been mislaid there, they were eager to search everywhere including the car park to find it for him (which they did). The breakfast which was included in the price was wonderful. All in all the Rochford Hotel was a great place to stay and I would 100% go back there.
