My wife and I have friends who live nearby and we have stayed 3 times in Southend, each time at Pier View. We stayed in the Sir William Heygate Room the first two times and this time (23rd Feb) in The Princess Caroline Room. Both rooms were perfect, the later was the better, it has a sea view.
Ed & Barbara, great host, and can not do enough to make your stay even better. David looks after the breakfast (on Sunday's anyway), he has so much local knowledge, regarding places to eat etc. The breakfast was plentiful, lots of different fresh fruits, ham, cheese and bread. Cereal's, Tea and Coffee. Additionally Pier View is yards away from a good High street and across the road from the amusements and the longest pier in the world.

Weekend in Southend – cold, wet, bleak however staying at the Pier View was a sunny experience. As the name suggests the Guest House has views of the Pier (stayed in the Pier View Room)
The Pier view is heritage listed (Grade 2) and its heritage is lovingly maintained, it’s cozy, comfortable, immaculately spotless and welcoming , it holds prime location across the road from the beach however close to the commercial heart of Southend.
The Pier View is a family owned business and provides that special personal touch that is not found in any chain hotels with the 5 star comfort and service.
I hope to get back to Southend for the summer and enjoy the English sun and again enjoy the hospitality of the Pier View.

A truly beautiful bed and breakfast with real care and attention to detail in all the unique rooms. The staff were really friendly and helpful and we never felt rushed to check out. The room was clean and comfortable and had a lovely view of the pier. In fact the location must be the best in Southend. Would certainly stay there again and would not hesitate in recommending it to friends.

This was our third visit to Pier View and it is becoming tedious trying to find another way of praising this guest house. Nevertheless here goes !! We stayed in the Princess Caroline room which has everything one needs for comfort and facilities with great views over the estuary. Ed and Steph make the visit a pleasure and nothing is too much trouble for them, what more can one say just brilliant

Room Tip: Before you travel ring Ed if you have any disability or other problems, he will sort it for you

We stayed at The Lady Hamilton Room for one night. It was very nice and clean and provided all the facilities we needed for our stay. The staff were very friendly and eager to ensure we had everything we needed - we had a wonderful visit.

We were initially concerned whether the cost per night was a bit high, but when we considered the superb location, facilities and breakfast we believe it was good value for money - and should we need to stay in the area again in the future we would certainly re-visit.

Room Tip: We can only comment on The Lady Hamilton Room, which faced the sea and a view of the pier. Surprisi...
