I stayed at Bensons Guest House overnight whilst visiting family in Southend. I found my en-suite room to be very clean and comfortable. Although breakfast is not provided I was aware of this before arriving and was recommended a fantasic cafe around the corner who provided a discount for customers staying at Bensons. The Manager was very friendly and accomodating, even providing us with her own plates and cutlery when we came back with a takeaway in the evening (this included cutlery suitable for my 3 yr old daughter). I can completely understand the need to pay in advance as there are many unscrupulous people who may try to leave without paying and having viewed the room before you pay you make the choice before you hand over your money surely? I very much enjoyed my stay here and would certainly return next time I visit my family as it is well situated close to the seafront making a peak season visit to Adventure Island, the Sealife Centre etc with my daughter!!
