Cheap and not so cheerful Aug 08, 2010
I made two huge mistakes when booking this hotel. The first was not listening to the bad reviews on Tripadvisor and the second was booking ahead and paying upfront and in full.

The Hotel was very pretty on the outside but rather ugly on the inside (as the accompanying pictures will confirm). The whole of the interior looked in need of a good refurbishment. My bedroom had peeling paintwork, threadbare carpets and a coating of dust covering everything; including the hangers in the wardrobe which i had to clean before hanging my clothes.

I was there for four nights and my bed sheets were not changed once. There were no fresh towels left, I had to collar the staff and ask for clean towels on the third day. There was a full English breakfast provided; along with small pots of jam that had been used and refilled! I ate the cooked breakfast, trying desperately not to think about the state of the kitchen it had originated from.

There are some good reviews on Tripadvisor, one in particular urging people not to pay attention to the bad reviews. I am inclined to think that these must have been written by hotel management or someone who has just got really lucky, and actually had their room cleaned! I would not recommend this hotel and anyone who decides to try not pay in advance!
Dirty skirting boards.
Peeling paint and dust bunnies.
Colony of moths in the bathroom. A…
Threadbare carpet.

The Terrace Guest House Southend On Sea Overview

Located Close to the beach, main shopping area, restaurants, bus & railway stations. The Terrace Guest House is a fantastic viewpoint to see the world famous Pier, day & night. More than 100 years old and 1.33 miles long, the pier is the longest pleasure pier in the world. If you're feeling energetic you can take a walk to the end or you can catch one of the unique pier trains one-way or both ways. Southend's seafront is literally packed with things to do for all ages Seven miles of award-winning beaches (including the Jubilee Beach – always above high tide), the longest pleasure pier in the world, over eighty parks and open spaces of varying size, forty playgrounds, six nature and fourteen historic conservation areas, sixteen allotment sites and that’s just for starters. Also along Southend's seafront is the renovated Kursaal building. The Kursaal was the entertainment centre of Southend more than 50 years ago with a glorious ballroom and outstanding architecture. It has now been brought back to its former glory and updated for the new millennium with a superb 30 lane bowling alley and amusements all round.
