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 Hotel.
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.
