Overall the second time I have stayed here and in both occassions the Hotel has been not only fully booked during my stay but for weeks ahead. this in its self has to say something for the Hotel and the fact I came back and would have re-booked had I been able to get in. The centre of Southend is only 5 minutes stroll along the coastal path with views across the estuary and pier. The surprise is that there are not many good eating places in Southend that I could find, but then maybe I did not look in the right places. It was also very quiet for a tourist town considering it was the end of June when I was there so was uncrowded and easy to get about.
Good value for money, central location yet in quiet and pleasent area. FREE Wireless Broadband, DVD player in the room, minifridge, SKY SPORTS 1,2,3 and all mod cons. I recommend it to anyone visiting Southend.
Nothing Wrong, everything perfect.

Overall the Ilfracombe House Hotel is an excellent hotel, clean & exactly as described on the website. Breakfast was excellent, you could help yourself to a cooked buffet breakfast & it was open for as long as you wanted basically, that did appeal to us. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone it was excellent & indeed value for money. The manager was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was near Southend seafront and within easy walking distance of the town centre. Room facilities were good. Nice comfortable bar area. For me this is the best hotel in Southend-on-Sea and I recommend it.
