My first every TripAdvisor review, but felt compelled to write about the Roslin Hotel what is without doubt an absolute credit to Southend-on-Sea.
Myself and my wife had decided to use the Roslin to hold our Wedding celebrations this Friday (18th), and all we can both say is WOW!.
I had a room on the Thursday evening prior to my wedding as did several of our guests, and my wife and I stayed in the Mulberry suite the night of our wedding. Whilst my room thursday was a standard room, it was lovely. Comfy bed and modern design; but the Mulberry suite was really something else. the suite is big and offers stunning uninterrupted views out across the sea. massive bed, lovely bathroom and the staff had scattered rose petals in the room as we arrived. It was a great experience.
However as a hotel I have to say that the location is first of all superb. Thorpe Bay is a lovely part of Southend and the hotel is just opposite the beach; which came in handy for those friends whom come with Kids. Secondly the hotel has a great kitchen. The food is consistently of a high quality. My wife and I have eaten at the Roslin many times and have always been impressed with what is put on our plate, but it is the people who work at this great hotel that made our experience so memorable.
To say that they couldn't do enough for us is an understatement. Everyone from the reception staff to the bar staff, managers were simply brilliant. Polite, understanding of peoples needs (again especially those with kids) and nothing was too much of a problem.
Special praise needs to go to Amy;whom we worked with to organise the wedding day. She worked tirelessly and presented a smooth wedding experience from the moment our guests arrived to the point of departure a couple days later.
We cannot thank the hotel enough, you made our day that bit extra special and would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Southend to use the Roslin. The food, the rooms, the staff just lend to an outstanding experience.
First rate experience and we will certainly be back post honeymoon
