          This is a lovely hotel, very clean and staff are very friendly. It overlooks the sea and is only a short 5 minute walk to local bars and resturants and the theatre is just along the road.

        • Single
          7.4

          Stayed for two nights whilst running a conference. Staff were at all times friendly, approachable and efficient. Lunches were better than breakfasts - breakfast was not poor, but not inspiring - everything looked and felt (and on the first morning, tasted) a little tired. Evening meal was very, lounge and bar facilities excellent.

          Internet access is poor - maybe not an issue for many guests, but it was for myself and colleagues. The staff did everything in their power to be able to help and improve this during our stay, including going out to purchase some new equipment but it it still remained slow and unreliable.

        • Older travelers

          Go to the theatre for which the location of the hotel was excellent.

          Would ask for top floor on next visit as it was very noisy from the people above.

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          The 24 hour staffed reception was very useful as we arrived at the hotel late on our first night, and they were happy to check us in. Cooked breakfast took the form of a buffet, but it was well stocked and staff were happy to help with special requests, and there were plentyful supplies of cerial and toast for those not wanting a full breakfast. Our rooms were neat and tidy, both room had an ensuite bath, and staff were friendly and helpful throughout the stay.

        • Single
          5.4

          The view.

          Presently undergoing re-furbishment so some areas are quite pleasant whereas others are very tired.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Very nice bar area and views from front of hotel (although not our room as we faced the roof)

          We only stayed one night and have no complaints.

        • Family with children
          5.8

          Food was excellent, view of the beaches pleasant, water was hot. Beds were clean and neat.

          Mattress/pillows were hard. Rooms were very hot and stuffy - noisey room with people walking overhead and halls. As a familly room - much too small. Room service non existent. Dirty cups/towels not removed, tea bags etc. not replaced. Lift too small for person with cases.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          the views of the sea were fantastic from our room and a jacussi bath was a suprise.

          the lift is tiny i only just squeezed my buggy in with difficulty,being on the 4th floor it was an inconvienience.

        • Couple
          6.6

          The breakfast was lovely and the hotels location was fantastic - amazing sea views

          Unfortunately we did not receive very good service from the front desk staff who were quite rude and in no rush to serve you which us a shame because all other staff we had contact with were very pleasant

        • Family with children
          8.2

          We had a pleasant stay. The hotel staff were approachable, friendly and helpful. The food was good. The room was clean and comfortable. The room at the back of the hotel was noisy as it was over the function room, loud music could be heard until the early hours.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          A group of us stayed here one night. All very comfortable. Didn't use restaurant or bars. Hot/cold buffet breakfast was good. The building is a bit of a warren - lots of odd stairways and firedoors into more corridors, but then it is victorian. It claims to be Southend's finest hotel and I could believe that, although it's not exactly luxury, it's very pleasant. Well situated in Westcliff (the posh bit of Southend) but only 10-15 mins walk into the centre.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The location was fantastic the resort was clean and tidy, there was a lot of work going on in Southend and we would like to come back next year to see it all finished

          The hotel room was a little dated and could do with re-decoration, and I was unable to use the lift as it was so small and I am claustrophopic. However using the stairs was good exercise!

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Having stayed at westcliff hotel for our honymoon back in 1967 first time we been back quite a few time since than manly becouse of its location and value for mony.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          the staff were friendly and helpful the food was lovely, well cooked, well presented and a good choice.our room was pleasant with the sea view we asked for

          although the room was good there was only 1 bedside table which was a bit of a bother and when we arrived the room was cold but there was a plug in heater we could use

        • Family with children
          8.8

          The staff were polite, helpful and very nice. The view from our window at the front of the hotel was amazing. The room was clean and modern even though it's an old building, and we even had a jacuzzi in our bath. The breakfast was nice and you get to choose from hot trays exactly what you want which is good, also you have lots to choose from, from cereal to a cooked breakfast, pastries, fruit. We booked our stay at the last minute, so it was on offer, but we would be quite happy to pay full price next time to stay there.

          The evening meals weren't great, but the 2 courses for £10 is a good offer, if the food was better.
