About Us

This independent and unique Hotel has been owned and operated by the same Southend family for the last 16 years.

We employ experienced local people who have a wealth of skills and local knowledge. Our business aim is to provide a welcoming, friendly and informal atmosphere to create a ‘home from home’ environment which is sadly lacking in many of the Hotel chains which operate throughout this country.

This Edwardian building is over 100 years old and was originally built as a ‘Gentleman’s Club’ which has traditional parquet flooring, large original stained glass windows, high ceilings and many original features. Most rooms have sea views.

There is plenty of on street parking directly outside the Hotel with no restrictions or charges. In recent years, Southend on Sea has had a resurgence of visitor numbers due to increased leisure and tourist attractions. The Hotel is very close to the Cliffs Pavilion and Palace Theatres and within a walking distance there is an abundance of good quality local restaurants. Our Hotel also enjoys a prime position 100 yards from the beach.
