I stayed at the Park Inn Palace Southend on Sea over the weekend with friends. The hotel is beautiful situated on the very near end of the Thames reaching the sea. The hotel is easy accessible by shuttle bus from Standsted Airport.
The welcome at the hotel reception was already a good start. The General Manager was seen around daily interacting with many hotel guests, both professionally as personally.
The rooms are modern and clean and an absolute plus is that many of them have sea view So has the dining room, brilliant.
Highly recommend this hotel for its offerings: Delicious Breakfast, Jazz evening on Saturday with loads of Fish and Chips at the bar; beer tastings possibility and close vicinity to local clubs, casino's and shooting ranges.
Absolutely a great place to stay, and even if you do not bring your friends, you can always count on the General Manager to entertain you.
We'll be back"
