“Fantastic B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2012

We stayed for one night at Pier View in the Lady Hamilton room in early October. Upon arrival we were given a warm welcome from the owners, before being shown to our room. The room was attractively decorated, clean and comfortable. The breakfast the next day was also excellent with a fantastic range of food. Pier view exceeded our expectations on all levels and we would thoroughly reccommend it.

We recently had a two night stay in the Princess Caroline room. The hotel has been tastefully and sympathetically restored with original fireplaces in our bedroom and the dining room.
The hotel is very conveniently located being in the centre of town and with clear views over the Pier.
The host, his wife and staff were very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was good too!

Room Tip: The Princess Caroline room was lovely with a good view of the Pier

Absolutely wonderful, we stayed in the Princess Caroline room, which was just beautiful. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was delicious; and our stay couldn't have been better. I would recommend the Pier View to anyone; and we will definitely stay there again.
One word of advice, it's wonky, so if you think you're walking up/down hill across the room, you probably haven't had too much vino :) but this just adds to the charm.

Room Tip: Have plenty of change for the parking (directly outside) and the Princess Caroline Room is amazing...

We booked 2 nights here September 26th...
Arrived to a warm welcome from Ed and taken to our room after checking in. We were in the Princess Caroline room and it was lovely. Clean, fresh, a beautiful room with wonderful views of the pier and lovely gardens just outside the house.
Everyone we met at Pier View were friendly and made us feel very much at home. The continental breakfast, after a lovely comfortable nights sleep, was great, all you could wish for and it set us up for the day...
Everything was top quality and we look forward to returning as we found the area had a lot to offer as well as the lovely Pier View.
We walked the pier, it was a long walk !!
We walked to Leigh-on-sea, again a great walk.
We visited the cinema, we also went to the Cliffs Pavillion to see Sally Morgan, brilliant night and what a lovely theatre.
All in all a wonderful break
Thanks to you Ed and your team.

We stayed here for one night before a flight from Southend Airport. Pier View is really well located, just above the front in Southend, and our room was both clean and comfortable. The best thing about our stay though was the welcome from the host. He was really welcoming on arrival and helped with our (heavy) bags to our room. He also offered us breakfast at an earlier than usual time in order that we could make our flight, which was very welcome and a great touch.

What can i say, wonderful B&B, loved the historical connection. Friendly owners and staff, so welcoming and accommodating. Very thoughtful regarding my daughters birthday. i love it at Pier View. Ed and team can't do enough for you. This will be a regular trip, i plan to sleep in every room. I've worked in Events and they can give top hotels a run for their money. Keep up the good work of excellent customer service. See you soon.

What a fantastic guest house,it is situated in the perfect location, very clean and beautifully furnished, the management could not have been more friendly and helpful. I could not have wished for a better place to stay on my nostalgic tour back to southend after living in Australia for 40 years. I will be recommending this guest house to everyone I meet. thank-you Carole Barnes
