Really nice guest house very friendly owners and staff clean and a really good breakfast on offer Very short walk to shops When you park ask the owner for a permit tho as it's cheaper than the machine wish this was more clear on the hotel website.

We chose the Estuary suite as it looked enormous, well it is not!!!! We arrive expecting to use the tea room for a snack, although the light was on they had chosen to close early due to lack of trade. Sorry but having been in retail you MUST keep to the advertised opening hours, instead of letting us purchase a...

This is just a great place to stay. It is a little pricey but well worth the extra money. The room was beautiful and the bed huge! (Room 3 on the ground floor). The sea view absolutely delivered and the service/attention was perfect. The pier room was a suite (first floor) and was also lovely but the bedroom and bed...

What a great find this was. Hubby and I were in Southend to see ABC at The Cliffs Pavillion and I had looked at various hotels etc in the area and The Gleneagles had some great reviews. Deservedly so. I was expecting a basic B&B but it is much more than that. We had The Pier Suite which had a...

Stayed here for business last night, great change from the normal drab chain hotels The room overlooked the sea with a panoramic view which was very nice. Bed was extremely comfortable and the room was spotless. Breakfast was very good and tasty. The service from the owner (I presume) was fantastic, referring to guests by their first names makes you...

I met with a very warm welcome from Gary and all his team at Gleneagles. The room was on the top floor and Gary offered to help me carry my bags upstairs. The room itself was a very nice size, with a warm cozy feeling to it. Lots of squashy pillows and cushions. Plus some lovely toiletries in the bathroom....

We spent 3 nights here, 2 in the Pier Suite and 1 in a smaller back room. The Pier Suite was excellent, very comfortable and great to have a separate sitting room with table, sofa and chairs and lovely bay window looking out to the estuary and sea. Very handy to have the breakfast room which became a café/coffee shop...
