      Very good”

      The Esplanade is excellently positioned just a 2 minute walk from the sandy beach across the road. It's far enough away from the pier for those who don't prefer amusements but close enough for those who do. Johnny Mac's Fish & Chips is very reasonable with huge portions and is within the building. It also serves as the breakfast location. Staff on checkin (and breakfast host) were very accomodating and friendly and the cooked breakfast in the morning was second to none. This is an older building without lifts so if climbing fairly steep stairs is an issue, be sure to book on the ground. The review did say "garden" - note that this is the picnic table seating area in the front of the building. We were able to park in the small back lot although that did mean we had to walk our luggage a block around the corner to enter as there's no back entrance (it's the kitchen). Rooms were clean although we were glad we had brought a fan as ours was quite hot. Would come again!

      Only stayed for one night but found it clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful! Would definately recommend and would stay again! I didn't get to eat my breakfast as I had to leave earlier than the service started so my only criticism would be that breakfast service on a Saturday morning should start at 7 rather than 8!

      Hotel right on the sea front great for a few days stay. Lovely breakfast. It's a shame parking was not adequate enough for the hotel, also we was not aware of the scaffolding outside the hotel when booking for my partners birthday. The lack of pressure in the shower was a nightmare.

      Very disappointing ”

      Booked a superior sea view room, there was nothing superior about the room. The floor was so uneven that the drawers on the chest of drawers were falling out, the windows were so dirty that to see the sea view that we had paid for the windows had to be opened. The room was so hot but was supplied with a fan, but there was only 1 double socket in room which the TV and kettle were plugged into so had to keep unplugging one of them to have fan on. There was no option for internet ( which we would have paid for ). I am 61 and my husband is 62 and our room was on the top floor with no lift.

      Esplanade Hotel, Clacton on Sea”

      Room was beautiful, massive, clean with a lovely view if the windows were clean. Ideal location opposite the sea front. The hotel is currently undergoing refurbishments which means no carpet in a majority of places and loud squeaky floorboards. On arrival I was allocated my room and asked for a room with a bath. This was no problem. Staff are young and inexperienced in customer service and I feel they would benefit from some professional training. You cannot tell the staff from guests. The thing that lets this hotel down is that the Local Authority house the homeless here. I gave up at 1am trying to get to sleep as people were back and forth outside my room. As I travelled for work this was not ideal. This may seem a harsh review but I'm being completely honest.
