Dear Tina P Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry that you found the room too small for your needs. This was the room you requested in order to get a seaview. Our premier rooms with a seaview though more expensive are much bigger. As for your view of Southend it was recently voted...

I booked the Gleneagles Guest House as they were close to a restaurant that I had booked for my partner's surprise birthday treat, and also because they were able to provide a Gluten Free breakfast menu. We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and made us feel welcome. He explained he had sourced some Gluten Free sausages...

Booked for one night as attending a party near by. Staff were very friendly, room was comfortable and clean, and breakfast was good. Had a room at the back which was fine as we only stayed one night. May be better to have a view of the estuary if you are staying longer. My Husband also enjoyed an afternoon cream...

I would highly recommend this guesthouse if you are visiting Southend. I stayed one night but even so was taken by the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. Great breakfast included in the price. And an ideal location.

Gorgeous room with sea view, very clean and spacious. Breakfast included. friendly welcoming hosts. We managed to get a parking space, there are 2 free spaces belonging to the hotel around the back . Quite a tight squeeze to get to space but we managed without a problem.

Ok I'll admit it - I'm a hotel snob and if I was booking a hotel to stay in I probably wouldn't have given Gleneagles a first glance, let alone a second one. But that's any guesthouse! But this was booked by friends for a night away to help celebrate her husbands 50th birthday. To say I was pleasantly surprised...
