They say 'never judge a book by its cover' and how true this is of this hotel! On the outside the hotel looks nice, clean and worth the money they charge.....on the inside it is dirty, old and in need of modernisation. The carpets, as mentioned by others that have reviewed this ghastly hotel, are old and shabby with the decoration just as bad. The channels on the old TV didn't work either and the floor boards were cracking all night long, along with a cramped bathroom with a problematic shower head. Those we stayed with echoed our comments. I wouldn't be so harsh had the price been reasonable, but claiming it is one of the 'finest' hotels in Southend and charging what they did is a joke. Only good thing was the breakfast. You have been warned.
