“Overnight Stay”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

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

Room Tip: The back rooms may be quieter

I just stayed here overnight so I could catch an early morning flight from SEN.
Not a bad place. They upgraded me to a room with a private bathroom, which I was thankful for. Just a few mins walk from the train station. Theres a pub and a Chinese place around the corner. And the sunset was surprisingly beautiful!

Hotel was clean enough although the room was tiny. The bathroom door did not open fully as the bed was against it.

However I invited two guests to have a chat in the room and was confronted but an agressive young chap who was obviously full of himself. How many people actually read ALL ther terms and conditions when they register.
A real nasty piece of work and completely spoit the evening. All he had to do was explain the rules politely
One lost customer !

Greeted with a warm welcome from the gentleman in reception and shown promptly to the room. We stayed here for a gig in Southend and the short walk back afterwards was no problem. Returning to a warm room and comfortable bed was all we wanted and we were not disappointed.

we booked the welbeck for a overnight stay to attend a funeral . we arrived at 12 noon and the room was available from 2pm but the staff cleaned our room next so we could go in earlier.
the staff said round the corner from the hotel was a cafe called dollys which served food and drinks we went there and the cafe food was very nice and staff friendly . the room was clean and roomy lorraine. the cleaner/ breakfast cook / receptionist was a very friendly lady who couldn't do too much for us thank you .. all in all i would recomend this hotel for anyone young or old o family, all the staff was efficient and friendly
