            The hotel is situated in a prime location for the pleasure beach activities in Southend and also for town centre shopping. I felt secure during my stay - I was travelling alone; the hotel has a security system which stops guests from travelling to other floors, other than their own. I think that the hotel provided excellent value for money.

            The lack of parking in the hotel itself is inconvenient. I arrived late on a Saturday night and felt uneasy about the parking facilities. However when I had checked in, by request, a member of staff accompanied me to my car to collect my belongings. Another issue with the parking was the cost - approximately 36 hours cost £22 - even though I was told it was a reduced rate. When I was checking out at the end of my stay, my room key 'timed out'. Rather than go from the 5th floor back to reception, I phoned to ask if someone could come up and let me into my room, in order that I could collect my remaining bags. I was told that I would need to go back to reception and extend my key card myself - which I did, twice!

            Very nice hotel, lovely staff rooms were a lovely size with great views.

            Beds were too hard, my partner found them uncomfortable. We chould not check in until three oclock when it clearly states 2.

            As it was our anniversary and the location of our first date, our stay was purely to see the Southend Air Show, however as I was and still is, recovering from recent surgery, I needed to be away from the hustle and bustle, which is why we carefully choose your hotel, for its location and privacy but mainly for the comfort for myself. We are planning on returning next year but the following year (2012) we are getting married, on or around the 25th May, which as you will be aware is also the weekend of the air show, so we will be making plans with yourselves in the near future to start our honeymoon at the Park Inn Palace.

            As I have explained above, our stay was purely for the air show and our own celebration, we expected to be able to access our room from 2pm, although we ourselves were late in arriving, the room was still not accessible until nearly 3.30pm. My partner enquired when checking in, as to whether or not we would be entitled to a discount, the receptionist told him that she would ask the manager but no action was taken. We were asked to wait in the bar area until our room was ready, may I suggest a complimentary drink for future guests in this predicament. As a result of waiting quite a while for our room, we decided to take advantage of the late check out, which enabled us to enjoy the show fully on Monday.

            Room was good

            Parking: it cost me £30 to park - you should look to having a deal with the car park and offer a discount to your guests. More bar staff are required at busy periods like the bank hols cause I was refused a cocktail, prices of spirits too expensive, a single shot of southern comfort was £4.20! rip off. Also didn't appreciate being stopped everytime I entered the hotel being kept asked was I staying at the hotel - annoying! breakfast too expensive at £11.95 each. I would only stay again if have to do something about your bar and breakfast prices as you are too expensive, I would recommend you but I would warn people of your overpricing

            The room was large compared to some of the others we have stayed at, and was clean and comfortable. The hotel is convenient for the beach and the theme park, as well as the high street.

            It was as advertised, a new mid-range hotel in a tourist town. We chose what must be the busiest time of the year to visit, the weekend of the air show, and the hotel was completely full, so the staff seemed like they were struggling to cope. They were very good-natured about it though, so no complaints.

            Very smart hotel right on end of pier and on seafront. Newly renovated, it all looked very bright and cheerfull. Staff very helpful and efficient. Views across the Thames Estuary brilliant. Thoroughly recommended

            8.8

            the hotel was nice and clean and the staff were good, the drinks were priced the same as the local pubs, the room was large with good views.

            no parking eccept for the multi story next to it £15 for over 7 hours!!!

          • Family with children
            9.2

            The room cleanliness and facilities, position within southend, friendly effecient staff and a good selection at breakfast.

            The carpets are a bit bright and the room seemed rather large for its purpose.

            Loved the hotel bar and restaurant overlooking the sea, decor in these rooms was excellent. Good barman - new his stuff.

            Excellent, superb views of sea, pier and adventure park

          • Family with children
            7.8

            A newly refurbished, comfortable hotel, rooms were spacious and contained everything needed. we did not eat here at all so cannot comment on the quality of the food.

            We found the checking in and out process a little tedious, to be fair it was Saturday afternoon and there were lots of others checking in at the same time, one of our rooms was not ready but this was not a problem and was soon rectified. We had booked our rooms online using credit card and this did seem to cause some confusion. Parking in the multistorey car park opposite on a Saturday was always going to be a bind, plus guests must be aware that for any time other than hours between 5pm - 9am they have to pay standard car park charge, could prove costly if staying a long time.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            The politness of the stuff and their readiness to help during situations.

            I would suggest that the bar-tenders check the room identity of the guests, because during my stay somebody did sign for an order with my room number. Luckily the problem was resolved but I felt awkward for a few moments.

          • Older travelers
            9.4

            The room was spacious, modern and clean. Close to front and shops

            we asked for a sea view, but partially obscured on the second floor due to the lower floors roof. No written info about the hotel or surrounding area in the room. No parking on site, had to pay offsite.

            The staff were all very welcoming and the room a delight to stay in.
