The Hamilton's is family-run by John and his daughter Rachel. My girlfriend and I stayed there 4 nights. I had great communication with Rachel at the time of booking: she proved very ready and helpful with our very late check-in, so everything went smoothly. The hotel is small but recently renewed thoroughly to a very good taste. It looks like brand new while it recalls old Georgian style! Our double room was the smallest and cheapest one, but still it was great: immaculate, flawless, nicely furnished, sound-proof. The small, clean bathroom featured good towels and toiletries, and a great shower! The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable, we slept there like nowhere else! Complimentary snacks, mineral water and everything to treat yourself a coffee or tea was available. The breakfast was excellent and varied: quality cereals and yoghurt, fresh fruit, juices, and an EXCELLENT English breakfast (veggie option available) cooked to order by Rachel. Overall, their attention to detail is amazing. As to the location, well, the Hamilton's is right in the middle of Southend, just off the High St., overlooking nice gardens full of squirrels and the sea. Seafront and the pier are just a cople of minutes' walk away. If you are planning a visit to Southend, don't miss the chance of meeting John and Rachel and their great hotel: you won't regret a single moment of your stay! Thank you!!!
