We stayed at The Bay last night and it was perfect! We had a very warm welcome and some good advice re restaurants and taxis etc, We were very lucky and parked right outside, but we looked at the parking to the rear and it's very safe and not even a 2 minute walk away.
The room (Room 1, double, ground floor, sea view) was immaculate and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the room was toasty for us coming in from a night out. Breakfast was very nice and we were pleased that the owner took time to talk to us during her busy schedule. We will be returning in March if we end up staying overnight for our next concert! Thank you for a lovely stay :)

Room Tip: Room 1 was ideal for us and, although we could hear the traffic, it was muffled.

Warm welcome, lovely people, well appointed, scrupulously clean rooms. Food was delicious and the price of the room very reasonable. Not only will we stop here again, but we will recommend to everyone else that comes to Southend, too.

Last time, we stopped in a 4 star hotel that was nowhere near as good as The Bay. Fantastic place.

I found this good value for money. I had a lovely big room with good facilities and a sea view. Parking is a bit of a pain as its in a car park just down the road, but it isn't too far to walk. It didnt seem to be too much of a problem to have breakfast earlier than 7.30 if you need too, but obviously its just cereal and toast at that hour of the morning.

Fantastic value for money, Eleanor was fantastic, the room was excellent as it had its own patio to sit outside, but unfortunately the weather didn't allow it, the room was excellent and the bed extremely comfortable, tea and coffee making and a nice size tv/DVD set, breakfast was brilliant as nothing was too much trouble. Will most definitely be going back as its on the front and close to restaurants.

We stayed a single night for a friends birthday, good price compared to other hotels\B&B's, clean rooms, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, tasty fried breakfast .

The hotel is on the sea-front with off road parking to the rear and greats views. Room had on-suite toilet/basin plus a large shared bathroom across the hallway.

Larger rooms are available with balcony or french windows leading to the garden.

Would recommend and happily stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor, with sea view, double room with on-suite toilet plus a large shared bath...
