“Terrible, good location though”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2011

Manky rooms, no on-suite (although could argue that's standard for b&b). Turned up at 6pm, rang door, no answer, only got in cos my mates who had arrived earlier let me in. Vastly overpriced for what it was.

On arriving at 8pm we were greeting by a man who did not speak any english, he showed us to our room which smelt musky and damp. the decoration was poor and cleaning was obviously not high on their agender as the bed sheets were dirty and there seemed what looked like cat hair all over the carpet. En suite was cramped and dirty, there was hair in the shower basin and the sink, and a foul smell coming from the plug hole. On going down the next morning for breakfast my mum tripped on torn carpet that had been patched up with tape on the stairs. We decided against having breakfast in the B&B and went along the seafront instead.......i would not let a family of rats stay in this guest house

This b&b seemed perfect as the location was spot on for me and my family to spend a break away

When we arrived at the b&b we where suprised how unfriendly the staff were,but we suspected that this was due to a rough day,we where shown to our room which was poorly decorated and badly funished,but for £48 per night we was not complaining as we were only going to use the room to sleep in once we took our young children around southend,we arrived back at the b&b at 2100 and got our children to sleep. Around 3:30am we where all awoken by a male and a female screaming at each other and throwing each other around then these people where threatening to kill each other then 4 more lads arrived on the scene shouting and theatening to set the b&b on fire and put the windows through(as you can imagine me and my wife and children we very worried)at this time there was no sign of the owner

This went on for at least an hour then the police where finally called the next morning we left as early as possible my 7 year old daughter just happend to use the toilet to discover thay had not been working and there was human urine all over the floor.While out side a passer by asked me for a lighter and said to me "your brave staying in there! there is alway trouble i see it every day as i live across the road"

I would not recommend you leave a dog in there for a night the place is unfit for use as a b&b

was very disappointed in our room needed decorating and was very cold!!!!! en suite bathroom small felt claustrophobic!!! the whole room and bathroom smelt funny as well. had a wonky wardrobe my friend went to hang something up in there and it nearly fell on her!!! breakfast basic the bacon had obviously been cooked previously to us ordering it so was lukewarm.

wouldn't recommend this b&b to anyone.

Seemed ok on the website but there seemed to be confusion with prices as we were quoted per person for twin and double rooms on the phone.
Bedding etc was clean,but some things were offputting such as towels around wasetpipes to limit leaks,also one of the rooms had water coming down from the ceiling.The same room had a very untidy repair from what was obviously a ceiling collapse.My general impression was that refurbishment was needed.
The bathrooms on suite were small in our rooms,there are however larger ones for non en-suite rooms.
Food was good and the breakfast room was clean.
