“Lovely people, lovely place”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Hamiltons Boutique in Southend-on-Sea is a lovely small hotel on the seafront, the staff is really friendly and make sure you feel at home. The food is delicious, all home-cooked and fresh. The room (Trafalgar), although a bit on the small side, is nicely decorated and has a warm feel to it. Tv is included. The bathroom is clean and pretty, again a bit small, but hey, we booked the cheapest room. The shower is really nice as well. All in all I'm glad I chose Hamiltons to accomodate my stay in Southend-on-Sea.

An easy walk from Southend station and good location overlooking the seafront. Good sized bed and TV hidden away in a cupboard. En suite was well equipped and clean but a bit cramped. My room overlooked the back of the property so avoided traffic noise. Breakfast was traditional and plentiful. Overall a very pleasant stay.

What a gorgeous little hotel, beautifully decorated & fantastic service, will definitely be going back. Went on a romantic break with my huspand and we loved it so much. We had Nelson"s lookout room, wanted to book The Balcony Suite, unfortunately unavailable, but will be booking again soon. Breakfast was fantastic too and a lovely welcome from owner of hotel made our stay even more worth it. We stayed in June, so sorry for late review!

We stayed in the Balcony Suite for three nights over our wedding and it was as wonderful as we'd hoped. As the bride, I stayed alone in the Balcony Suite the night before the wedding and the subsequent two nights with my husband. The bridesmaids and my parents filled the other rooms in the hotel.

It was lovely to have our whole wedding party there and thanks to John and Rachel it really felt like home. They were unobtrusive but there to assist if and when we needed them. I ordered breakfast in bed for the morning of the wedding but forgot to order it for myself and husband the day after the wedding. John knocked on our door at 915, 15 mins before breakfast finished, to see if we would like some. I thought this was a lovely touch; he obviously realised we would like breakfast in bed but didn't want to disturb us too early.

All of the rooms are lovely at Hamiltons but the Balcony Suite is something special. I would recommend it for any brides to be. The spacious living area is ideal for gathering with friends and family - the morning of the wedding was lovely, with bridesmaids, friends and family in and out getting ready and sharing Champagne. The balcony is also a lovely spot for a few photos.

We had great nights' sleep. The funfair could be heard from the front facing rooms until around 11pm on Saturday but this wasn't a problem for our party.

Breakfast was high quality with a good choice of the usual cooked English fare.

Hamiltons is really relaxing - John and Rachel do not impose themselves at all and you're left to feel as though you're really at home. However, if you do need them for anything they're there in an instant.

We will return for our anniversary.

Room Tip: Balcony Suite is dreamy but the next best room is the lovely and large Hamiltons.
