First the good points. Above all else the fabulous staff. From the super efficient breakfast front-of house supremo Clair, to the...

We travel regularly with GB tours, they are reasonably priced so we don't expect top class hotels. We found the staff friendly and obliging. Our room which was on the ground floor close to reception was quiet and comfortable. There was plenty of storage space and a good shower. It was beautifully clean. Breakfast was excellent.

Stayed here to visit frinton and Walton and then to go to Chelmsford so in between the two. Treated ourselves to a massage which was lovely also had a swim in the pool. Plenty of choice for breakfast with no rush. Staff were all friendly and helpful.

The sheets and the room were clean, but the hotel is very dated and the room carpet was thread bare! The towels were put on the suitcase rack so were not very clean! The "best" western it is not! We won't be back

I visited yesterday with some friends for the afternoon tea. The registration was fairly quick and was offered menu of free soft drinks which set the day off nicely.
