Could not find fault with our stay for four days. Newly decorated rooms, spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. No request was too much trouble. A big plus was that we were able to take our small dog with us as this is a 'dog friendly' hotel. Hotel is very central. Excellent full breakfast. Can thoroughly recommend this hotel...

Stayed here last bank holiday in May two nights. Fantastic location on the beach front. We stayed in room one after booking nearly a year in advance very nice and bright, blue skies all the time of our stay, so lucky. Loved the breakfast, the service was excellent and very friendly, can't wait to stay here again in the future....

I spent 3 weeks working out of Clacton and found this little gem online. From the first phone-call to checking out, nothing was too much for Roberto and Christina. The rooms were well looked after and it's location was perfect. Food was fantastic and set me up for the day. To truly make this a 5* rating, an earlier start...

We were able to check in early which was great, as it meant we could go off and enjoy Clacton. Very reasonable price for what we got - a friendly welcome, two full english breakfasts, and right around the corner from the pier. The only negative thing I would say is that the en-suite was very small, and the bathroom...

Roberto and Christine were fantastic hosts and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was comfortable. The vegetarian breakfasts were great and as I am disabled and can't walk very far, they saved a parking space at the front for us by parking their own car there. Nothing was too much trouble and we will definitely be back.
