      The hotel being opposite the sea was nice, the honeymoon suite was nice with bay window and seating area for breakfast etc. The oldness of the hotel made it quite romantic with creaky floorboards throughout upper floors. Nice and warm, with nice food, and fairly able staff.

      I did not like the entrance to rear carpark, nasty drop from main road to entrance causing damage to the front of my car and making front foglamps unusable, mentioned to hotel receptionist who claimed it happens to her and other people. dog mess was everywhere at front entrance making it difficult to walk out, especially at night. the whirlpool in honeymoon suite (seaview) had not been regularly used and emitted foul smelling debris into water once in operation, this cleared the second time though. once these things are put right I would then and only then.....recommend this hotel.

      Good breakfast, friendly staff

      very soft beds, gave me pain in the backBooked to be close to harwich, it was very far away because of the river in between!

      Location, parking.

      Very, very shabby 1970's decor. Shampoo attachment-style shower the like of which I haven't seen since 1975.

      Breakfast Staff

      The smell of cigarette's on the landings, clearly people do not respect the no smoking law.

      Promixity to the beach, had room overlooking sea.

      We went here over 20 years ago when it was a much higher star rating. sadly the hotel is in need of renovation in many places, both internally and externally.

      The staff were polite and helpful. The room was clean and the food very good and we thought it was good value for money.

      Though the paint work needed touching up in places this was not an issue if you look at the economics of the hotel, anyway when some guests seem to ill treat the rooms as we found (marked walls where chair had been lent on) Our main issue was we had 2 evening meals in the restaurant and would have had more if it were not for the fact we were told that whether we had 2 or 3 courses we would still be charged the same (£15. 95p) . We have never en-counted this in any other restaurant and feel a slight reduction £13. 95 ) would have been fairer you do not always want 3 courses, the only other thing was the water placed on the table was warm,no ice and when you are drinking a glass of nice cool wine, not very good, oh and the T.v in the room could have been tuned in better.

      We had to vacate the neighboring b and b for one night so chose the M. It was tawdry and tatty by comparison - smells of old cigarettes, fixtures need replacing, the shower was hard to work and wasted water - there was no clock or tissues - the door creaked all night - it is not well soundproofed and the coffee at breakfast was cool and not very fresh! The one good thing was it had internet access.

      Lovely view from the sea view suite. Staff very friendly and breakfast was delicious. Handy having a bar within the hotel and lovely to be able to walk out of the door and straight onto the beach.

      The bed was lovely and we had a wonderfull nights sleep,with an excellent cooked breakfast in the morning which was brought to us in no time at all.

      The Hotel has seen better days and it could do with a good makeover to make it better.

      helpful staff; warm room. Well cooked breakfast.

      Dreadful mattress - had to put other duvet on top of it to enable some sleep - the springs are coming through. Hotel is rather run-down and seems to be struggling. Furnishings very old/scuffed - depressing. Staff minimal but do their best.

      Was pleasant nice staff.the english breakfast was lovely and its a nice quite location...room was clean

      The only thing that was a let down was that I had booked the room with a whirpool bath as im heavily pregnant thought it would be nice to relax in but it didnt work and I feel that it was abit of false advertiseing..there were no flannels and the bath towels where more like hand towels..considering this was meant to be the honey moon sweet it wasnt really!!the tea / coffee in room was very minimal may as well not botherd and there was no hairdryer...
