“We were there on Business, we were welcomed even though arrived late. The staff were friendly, helpful and cheerful. Nothing was a problem. The meals are very good and the service was that of what I would expect in a large Hotel. It was clean everywhere which is number one with me. Had a great stay and would go there again.

First impression of this family hotel were a nice surprise. Clean and well presented, with polite staff. I was given room 18, which to my surprise had a 4 poster bed, shame I was on my own. The bathroom was fully tiled and I mean fully. You need to see it to believe it. The hotel has its own restaurant, the steak is highly recommended. Breakfast is buffet style and with a selection that will suit every pallet. All in all a very nice place to stay. Poshweb, Tripadvisor Member, Slough,

Easter weekend in Southend is a bit of a habit for me now. This (2014) was the fifth time I’ve driven down from Aberdeen, to stay at The Ilfracombe House.
After 10 hours behind the wheel and arriving several hours early (my miscalculation), the staff did their best to get me into my room ASAP for a nap. The breakfast is fantastic, probably the best I’ve had in a hotel and you can eat as much as you like. The hot servers are continually filled with freshly cooked food and you can help yourself as many times as you want. I also had one evening meal on this trip and that was of excellent quality and value too.
The rooms are warm, comfortable and clean and the owner, his family and staff are always polite, professional and attentive.
It’s very close to the seafront and a 10 minute walk from the town center and railway station. Parking can be an issue but it’s never caused me any great concerns albeit I’ve had to drive round the block a couple of times to get a space – no biggie really. It’s very reasonably priced too.
I’d have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any one and all goilng well I’l be back for years to come.
Thanks Bertie, family and staff.
