The Ilfracombe House, Southend-on-Sea
Clean & neat
Hotel is clean and neat. Rooms are also nice and clean and in fair condition. Most rooms are small with single beds and small bathrooms. Service is good and friendly and included breakfast is tasty & plentiful. My only complaint is that the bedroom doors swing shut and make a loud bang. Adding sprung loaded door closures would be a nice improvement. If you need a room to sleep & breakfast while visiting the Southend area, this hotel works fine and is good value. However, the rooms aren't conducive to hanging out in comfort.

Nice friendly hotel.
We had a short 2 day stay in this hotel, but wish we had longer! From our arrival, the lovely Denis made us feel very welcome. We had room number 19 which was very roomy and comfortable. The breakfast was very nice and plentiful. A nice cozy bar area for a nightcap before bed. The hotel is situated a 2 or 3 minutes from the seafront and shopping centre is a short stroll away. Would definitely recommend it.

Nice hotel, great staff and location but no AC
This is a nice, quaint little hotel. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. The hotel is clean and well kept. The Manager helped me load my baggage in and out of my car and when I had to leave for my business meeting before breakfast was served, he gave me cereal, milk, yogurt and a banana to place in my room refrigerator so I could eat before leaving in the morning. The website says there is air conditioning in this hotel There is not. I asked the Manager to confirm this and he said that they only have fans. says they called the hotel to ask about the air conditioning. says that the hotel said that they have air conditioning. No matter who you believe, they DO NOT have air conditioning and if you stay here in the summer, you might be sleeping in a very hot room. This is the only drawback to staying here.

Everything Was Perfect.
Very pleasant stay at The Ilfracombe House. Quick and easy check in, the owner and his family were really friendly. We stayed in room 12 at the top of the house and the room was perfect, very clean & spacious and if I could have, I would have packed up the bathroom, it's exactly the design we want at home!. Breakfast was buffet style and very generous and doesn't finish until 10.30! Parking is included which is a real bonus in that area. We will deffo be returning on our next trip.
