“A little gem”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

I stayed here for one night with family in the summer. The owners very welcoming. The room charming and very clean with a great sea view. The breakfast room beautiful too. If passing through Southend again I would stay here.

I spent 2 days at Pier View in Southend with my partner for his Birthday and have to say it was a fantastic experience. The B&B is a lovely place and all the staff and the owner where incredibly attentive and helpful. Having not been to Southend before I would love to go back for another visit and will certainly be staying at Pier View again as it was such a pleasure.

We stayed here for a weekend in November and the reviews on tripadvisor were great so we were expecting great things. Due to unforeseen circumstances we were late arriving and were very tired so we just went to bed. Our room was on the ground floor, facing the street and next to the front door. However, the room got very hot during the night although the radiators were cold when we got there and our attempts to open the secondary glazing and sash windows in the night were fruitless! Perhaps a fan in the room would be helpful - because the second night, we opened the window and were kept awake with loads of outside noise and comings/ goings through the front door. On a positive note the room was great- a bit dusty in the out-of-the-way spots, the bed huge and comfy and the continental breakfast expansive - although a bit predictable ( I have most of that in my kitchen to eat for breakfast!) The Saniflo system in the bathroom was noisy but I understand the need for it.
The staff were fantastic, friendly and informative and I have to say very sorry for our poor nights sleep on the Saturday when another Hotel's music kept us awake until gone 4:00. We are providing evidence for a complaint against the that Hotel with the Council. The owners of Pier View could not have done more to make things better for us. We loved Southend too - so much more than we expected. Thank you!

Me and my partner stayed in the princess caroline room for two nights. Where do I start... The staff were very welcoming and friendly, The room and the view were beaitiful. The attention to detail was second to none and we were so well looked after. The food was delicious and set out beautifully I really have nothing negative thing to say apart from we wish we had found your guest house sooner. We cant wait for our next visit to the pier view . Thank you.

A great experience and certainly one of the best guesthouses we ever stayed at! The house and our room were lovely and very confortable. Pier View offers a very central location along with a really quite environment... and of course a perfect view! We really enjoyed the breakfast too. I am looking for something wrong but I can't find... As a conclusion, we will come back for the warm welcome and all the king attentions of Ed and Barbara and their team.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Lady Hamilton room, decorated in a tasteful way. It is located at the ground floor...

My husband, myself and our two children stayed in the family room, lord nelson suite, 29th July 13
We originally booked for 3 nights but decided to stay on an extra night when the weather improved
They were extremely accommodating and quickly arranged this for us
The accommodation was lovely and clean and perfect for our family of 4 with plenty of room to move around, tea and coffee facilities and a microwave, dining table and chairs and a small fridge for drinks, plus crockery and cutlery if you wished to eat in the room during the day
We requested extra bedding as the children did not want to share a duvet, which was provided, as well as hot chocolate sachets when my son requested it
The bath was a little awkward for me as I have arthritis but the kids loved it
The breakfast was plentiful, a wide selection of cereals, fresh fruit, fruit juice, yogurts, toast, muffins, croissants and cakes, and well topped up during breakfast time, and tea, coffee and hot chocolate also available
The family and staff were friendly and chatty and made us feel welcome
They were also happy to store our bags on the day we went home so we had a few more hours at the seafront before we left
Would recommend as the place to stay in Southend. We were not there at the weekend so could not comment on the noise from the pub, but certainly during the week it was quiet enough and far enough from the nightclubs to not be a problem

Room Tip: Nelson suite perfect for a family with one or two young children
