Built in 1891, The Westcliff Hotel offers commanding views of the Thames Estuary from its clifftop position, a short walk from the shops, restaurants and bars of Southend-on-Sea.

From the hotel it's a 15-minute stroll through Southend Cliff Gardens -- home to birds, wildlife and flower displays -- to Southend Pier, which at 1.34 miles is the longest pleasure pier in the world. You can walk its length or take the train down to the pier head, where there is a cultural centre and great views over to Kent.

Leigh-on-Sea's old town -- think cosy pubs, cockle sheds, cobbled streets and the clank of halyard on mast -- is a 10-minute drive or a 45-minute walk along the coast path. East Beach, an extensive sandy beach at Shoeburyness, is 15 minutes' drive. The Grade II-listed Kursaal, which opened in 1901 and was one of the world's first amusement parks, is a 20-minute walk along the seafront.

The hotel's Lamplights Brasserie is open for lunch and dinner, and there is bar and a lounge area. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout, and there is 24-hour room service. There are 55 bedrooms, some with impressive sea views.
