Made our first visit to Southend I was singing with a Choir at the Palace Theatre we therefore wanted cheap and cheerful accommodation and the Welbeck fitted the bill.
We booked the family room, all the normal doubles were taken, we arrived early and the place seem deserted so we came back after lunch and noticed that the door had a notice saying to ring a telephone number which we did and found that we should have rung a rather inconspicuous bell (silly us!!)
We were greeted by Tom who was very friendly, informative and helpful. The hotel is fairly old and with tired looking decoration but the fire alarm system seemed to be very good, it did have a bar which didn't seem to be used. Our room (No 5) was on the first floor with two single beds and bunk beds presumably for children
Again the room was rather drab but the beds were well made with a plentiful range of towels, the bathroom was slightly grubby in need of new fittings but everything seemed to work.
The room was rather warm during the night and the windows difficult to open.
The breakfast in the morning was excellent we had a "Full English", the lady doing the cooking an waiting was really friendly and efficient, it cost an extra £5.80 which we thought was excellent value!!!
The cost of the stay was £69.00 (excluding breakfast) which we thought was excellent value.
We have no hesitation in recommending the Welbeck for those want basic accommodation at a very reasonable price
