Excellent Small Hotel

What a lovely smaller hotel. I will no longer stay in the large chain hotels when next visiting Southend. The rooms were very modern, clean, and well-furnished – and importantly with plenty of space. Bathrooms very modern and new. But above all, the service was brilliant. From the moment I arrived and was given immediate help to park my car, the Ilfracombe Hotel set itself apart with it’s incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was also outstanding. This hotel is a hidden gem amongst all the other hotels in Southend.

Excellent value for money
Could not find fault with anything…I have booked several hotels with booking.com and have found this one as one of the best for comfort, location etc the Owners were so friendly and welcoming and full of local knowledge…would certainly recommend and will rebook next time we go to that area

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 IlfracombeΒ 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.
