Overview

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.

Refurbishment is traditional and in keeping with the period of the building. If you have affront room there is a lovely sea view.

Everything was great even the rain couldn't dampen our enjoyment of our stay, the only dampener was we would have used our £5 credit for their afternoon tea but we were told we could only use it in the restaurant for lunch or dinner. But never mind we had a great stay and thanks Travelzoo for your offers we have never been disappointed.

Other Comments
The Hotel staff is not very committed and not much interested in offering good service. Not very clean, first impression of the reception was not pleasant, we did not feel welcomed.
