Hamiltons Boutique Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 November 2010

We arrived late, due to roadworks on the A127. Rachel (standing in for her family) called us to see how we were going, and then gave us perfect directions through the roadworks.

The hotel is like a showhome; every room we were in was immaculate in decor, design and cleanliness. Not sterile, but there's a good deal of (justifiable) pride in the place and it shows, and the welcome was second to none.

Our bags were carried up the stairs for us, and then Rachel advised us of the local places to go and left us to it, after making sure we had all our questions answered.

The bed was nice and comfy, roomy enough for my pregnant wife and I plus a good deal of spare room.

The room was quiet, with only the seagulls interrupting our sleep in the morning. Free tea and coffee in the room, complementary choccies and the most space age shower I've ever seen! And again, scrubbed spotless before we returned for our second night.

Breakfast was exceptional. Bacon sliced so thick it was almost gammon steaks, a deliciously herby sausage and the best fried eggs I've ever had. Forget the mass produced English breakfast sat drying out and hardening in a bain marie some hotels offer; this was fresh cooked to order and on the table before I'd finished my orange juice.

The welcome, room, breakfast, attentiveness and outright excellence delivered by Rachel and her husband has never been paralleled in any of the many 5 star hotels I stay in regularly for work.

We were cossetted (they even lent us brollies to go out in the rain with!) endlessly, nothing was too much trouble for Rachel and her team.

I'd recommend Hamiltons to anyone. The only downside to the stay was the roadworks, and the weather, and there's nothing that they can do about either! (I wouldn't put it past them to try, though!).

We stayed at the Hamiltons Boutique Hotel for two nights while attending a conference. From the moment we arrived till the moment we left we were extremely impressed with the level of service and the standard of accommodation. The room we had (the Lady H room) was prefect for us and the ensuite shower was amazing.

Every detail of the interior of the hotel has been well considered and beautifully executed and is a credit to the owners.

Rachel and her husband went out of their way to make us feel welcome and were extremely helpful and thoughtful.

The full english breakfast was spot on as well.

I just wish every hotel could get it right like the Hamiltons. A+++++

we came to southend on a hen weekend and were welcomed by Hamilton Boutique Hotel owners. Each room had its own individual design yet kept in tune with the interior. It was a delightful find and was so central and we were treated well by guest house owners who made our stay enjoyable and catered for all our needs. Great bathroom and some front facing rooms had views of the sea and fairground.

Definitely a gem of a hotel in Southend.

Fantastic, classy and above all friendly Hotel. Rooms were immaculate and the lounge/breakfast room really cosy and inviting. The owners were very friendly yet non-obtrusive and respectful.

A lovely hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. The location was amazing and the rooms were very clean, comfortable and cosy. There was plenty of room for our large group and everyone enjoyed their trip; several people commented on how they could stay for another week!

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Hamiltons Boutique Hotel in Southend. Rachel and John are the perfect hosts and went out of their way to make the experience far exceed our hopes and expectations. The hotel/B&B is fabulous - the rooms are furnished to an exceptionally high standard, each with an individual touch. The beds were especially comfortable and showers were luxurious. The dining room is warm and welcoming, with decor and furniture akin to a top restaurant- the breakfast was delicious too. The location of the hotel is central yet quiet, with beautiful sea views. All in all, it was a faultless stay at a gorgeous hotel, that was so much more than a standard B&B. Thank you so much for having us - we will definitely return.
