“A Pleasant Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

We had four nights at this B&B and were very happy that we stayed there. It is less than a minute to the seaside and a pleasant walk into the town centre. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the hosts pleasant and helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place for a stay.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

We spent just over two weeks with our hosts Mark and Cathy at the Cabana. It was a very difficult time for us, arranging my mother's funeral and attending to all the associated legal and financial matters. Our hosts could not have been more accommodating. They went far beyond the usual provision of a breakfast(excellent!) and a room(quiet and clean) in an attempt to ease our emotional and physical issues. It's a cliche but true that "we arrived as guests but left as friends".

We would recommend the Cabana guest house very highly to all wishing to spend a weekend or longer in Clacton. It proved to be a real home away from home !

I stayed two nights at this B&B. Nice, clean and comfortable room. Private bathroom across the landing, but this caused me no problems. Good breakfast in the morning that Mark, the proprietor, was happy to provide early for me. The food was freshly cooked and tasted very good. This venue was also very reasonably priced and nice and warm. I am happy to recommend and I would certainly rebook if I work in Clacton again.

We stayed here for a night in order to attend a family function. We were made to feel very welcome, it was like visiting old friends! The room and facilities were just what you need for a comfortable stay and the breakfast was very enjoyable. It is ideally located to enjoy the area.

Whilst visiting family in Clacton, we stayed at the Cabana for 4 nights. Couldn't find any fault with this lovely guest house .Rooms are spotless . Hot showers.Clean towels every day. The breakfasts are really good . The owners are very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to visiting again very soon, infact, have booked 5 nights in December.

Room Tip: We stayed in room7.

Good friendly B&B with excellent breakfast and hosts. Only down side which has no reflection on the Cabana or its owners but I feel I must mention it as a warning for other car drivers. Do not park near the Bowling Green car park exit as we have now got a nice £350 bill for the repairs to our car where someone had swung out of the car park, hit our car and then driven off!!

Janet I have no words to express my horror at what happened. I wish you had said something as I can assure I would have called the police. I have been in touch with them direct but unless you lodge a complaint yourself, I as a third party can do nothing. Please contact me if you wish to take matters further. In 10 years we have never had this happen and it is particularly galling when you consider the calibre of people that are members there. I will make contact with the bowling club myself to express my disgust. Please contact me when you next pop into Clacton, you can have a free night on us.

I would recommend "Cabana" for those people, who are looking for a short and cheap stay in Clacton-on-Sea with a good location. It's a very small guest house, the owners are very friendly, who give the feeling more like a home from home than a guest house :) We have spend there one night at the beginning of August, the room was very clean and bright, the only one minus was that it was really cold at night, because the wind was very strong that night and it was blowing straight into our room, we have double checked if we haven't left the window open.
Every room there has a private bathroom, but bathrooms are not in the room, you have to cross the corridor. Personally, it was the only one thing that I didn't like, but otherwise it's not the end of the world just for 1-2 night stay and knowing that you pay just 50 GBP for a night.
Lovely place, only few minutes away from the beach, friendly and nice owners, what could be better!

Sorry about the "breeze" we don't feel it down here and hope it didn't spoil your stay too much. We have had unusual weather here lately. Very hot during the day and sometimes a cold wind off the sea at night. Thanks for the comments and hope to see you again.
