We stayed for one night last Saturday, my friend was having a party close by and it was ideal for one night. We paid £76 the entry level room fee and I was suprised to be given a rather nice seafront room for that, was a shame that the balcony door was locked and apparently had no key! though I am guessing that previous guests had abused this feature! The room was small but spotless and have everything you need for an overnight stay.
The hotel is pretty much opposite Ocean Beach Bar which is good for a drink in the sun, we had dinner at the nearby Roslin Hotel that was fantastic! we originally wanted to stay at Roslins but am really glad we coudn't get in as they were booked - the rooms there are around £120, so all the more money for Champagne!
To be honest we checked in went straight out then did not return to the hotel until 4am so it served our needs on that basis, everything was clean, the linens good and a comfy bed so can't complain!
Breakfast again was a suprise, I've been at far fancier hotels that do a worse breakfast, the even fried some eggs up as my friend didn't fancy the scrambled! All seemed like pretty decent quality produce too.
Everyone from the lady on reception to the staff at breakfast we encountered were pleasant and helpful. If I need to return to Southend again I would stay here.
