The staff at Camelia Hotel were very friendly and welcoming and the food was excellent. I am sure in the summer it would be wonderful to be right by the sea and even on an October morning, breakfast was a pleasure looking out across the Estuary.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. I was attending my uncle's funeral and it was close to my relatives' house
Westcliff Hotel - Southend on Sea
John & Irene (Mature couple) stayed on 26/08/2004
The Westcliff Hotel has clean rooms, helpful staff, good order throughout, lift to all floors (although quite small). Tea making facilities in room and generous with helpings. Good lounge area to sit in the evenings. No car park only the road where cars park both sides so cars were not that safe, so parking in side roads is recommended. Very close to biggest casino in Southend, Westcliff Casino, 4 minutes walk and next to the biggest theatre and concerts show the Cliffs Pavillion.
They let themselves down with the staffing of the bar at night with only one person serving and the bar was packed as there was a wedding there. Having said that I would recommend this hotel to my friends.
Overall: good choice at breakfast, staff helpful and polite, good clean room, would stay again no car park only road, 1 staff serving behind bar at night so getting drinks took a long time.
