- "A lovely Guest House with great hosts, on the seafront with excellent views. Our room was great, decorated and furnished to a good standard, we had a balcony which was lovely to sit out on and enjoy the view. Breakfasts were excellent in quality and service. Away from the main attractions so it is lovely and peaceful, but not that far away if you want the hustle and bustle."
- "The Waverley was a great bed and breakfast on the front at Southend. I had a room with a view out across the water and the balcony was a nice place to watch the boats bobbing around whilst you had your morning coffee. A cooked breakfast was made to order, toast and juice was self serve. Being good value, I'll be back again. There was a large free car park at the rear, but there are plenty of stations in and around Southend."
- "I was booked into Park Inn on a business trip, but would be more than happy to come back and stay on a social visit. Your pretty much close to everything. Southend Pier, shops, cafes and Casino. I had a good sized room with a seaview or Thames Estuary one to be precise. You have to head out to Shoeburyness 5 mins away for a proper seaview. Breakfast was self service buffet style offering a good choice of cold or hot options."
- "My wife and I were visiting some family in Southend and stayed here for 2 nights. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly reception staff who directed us to our room. Our room was very clean and comfortable and bathroom clean too. Nice buffet breakfast served in the morning with a good selection."
- "Had booked the Rochford Hotel for a few nights B&B whilst catching up with family. Then managed to get a bargain break away, flying from nearby London Southend Airport. Had a nice warm welcome when we arrived and were shown to our room which was a bit bigger than i was expecting, but wasn't going to complain about that. Superb sized comfortable bed meant we slept well after a few drinks down the road at the Horse and Groom. With the wonderful staff we met it looks like we'll be back for sure."
- "We received a warm welcome and after unloading we sat on the sunny terrace and enjoyed coffee and cake. We had the garden suite which had a sitting room and patio area. Everything was clean and fresh, well equipped including toiletries. Breakfast was excellent, well cooked and delicious. The service from the owners and staff could not have been better, the location is excellent, close to the pier. We were very happy and would recommend to anyone."
- "With great views over the Thames Estuary and plenty of parking at rear of the hotel, we were set for a quick B&B stay. Our room at the top had a great view but due to the weather, we couldn't quite see the Isle of Sheppey. The room was plenty big enough and the shower worked wonderfully. Breakfast was self service but there was plenty of choice. It was around 20 minutes to walk to the Royals Shopping Centre."
Southend has seven miles of seaside beach for families and tourists, but there is much more to the city in Essex than just beaches. The accessibility of the area opens up a myriad of options for visitors to the area, and the one-hour train journey to London means that getting in and out of the area to some of the attractions of the big city is a straightforward journey.
July 2012 saw the opening of the Southend-on-Sea Pier Culture Centre. This newly built attraction has views of the Thames estuary and inside is an artist's studio, hall, and cafe. Leigh-on-Sea Heritage Centre contains information and relics relating to the history of the area. Hamlet Court Road in nearby Westcliff-on-Sea is a retail area with a variety of quality restaurants available, together with a wide selection of shops. The area is also busy in the evening as people visit the various restaurants.
For sporting enthusiasts visiting the area, the Southend Marine Activities Centre offers a variety of water sports under the guidance of a trained professional, and sailing, canoeing, and jet-skiing are just a few of the activities that are available. There is also a leisure and tennis centre in Southend, which also has an athletics track, basketball court and aerobics suite amongst other facilities.
Southend-on-Sea has been a traditional seaside town for many years and most of its income is acquired from the tourist trade. This means that visitors will find that Southend and its surrounding areas have invested a lot of money in a wide array of leisure and tourist attractions.
