Staff grezt, walls thin, beeate neighbours noise!
Staff friendly, room big and decent. Spoilt by being woken at room next door having domestic. Went on for some time shouting, swearing. Not ideal when i had a 6 year old in my room. Walls are thin and offered no protection...real shame. Told staff and emailed hotel several times but no reply.

Short stay
Short stay while visiting family. The hotel is a little dated but was clean and the staff welcoming. We had a lovely room overlooking the sea. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean. Breakfast was very tasty.

Good old Clacton
We stayed at the Adelphi......The Hotel is rather old and a little tired looking....... never the less we had a nice couple of days. Good atmosphere...good staff. .....good breakfast ...would stay again At The Adelphi if we ever go to Clacton again.......highly unlikely....unfortunately. Spent many weeks in Clacton in my school years with my grand parents.... Some 60 odd years ago......IT has not changed that much since then.......OK if the sun is shining. The beach is good. The pier needs a complete overhaul....or sink it. My partner (her first visit stated what a dump!... It still gave me some pleasure from my memories. I played the harmonica in talent competition I think I was ten....I won a set of hair brushes......gave them to my Father.......I have them now.....Roy Brown... now 80+

Fair 4.0
In need of a deep clean.
Good position , excellent views. Rather tired hotel in dire need of some money spent refurbishing it. Shower almost unusable due to low water pressure in the room we had. Some Power sockets are located behind furniture which necessates twisting around and leaning down the side to plug in the hairdryer ( had no choice of socket for this as hairdryer lead went through hole in the back of a drawer )Kettle was also situated on these drawers so remember to move it to prevent scalding accidents !Curtains have no linings so if the morning light wakes you take an eye mask you will need it. Everything just had a slightly stale smell and in need of a deep clean. The breakfast was very good and is taken in the adjoining fish and chip restaurant. Fish and chips are also very tasty and piping hot here too. Very small car park to the rear but no access to hotel from here so you must walk with bags along the street , round the corner to the front of hotel which is worth bearing in mind if travelling with small children.

Great Location, View and Room
Bed and Breakfast Hotel with a great location and view overlooking the sea and the pier. Even a first class fish & chip restaurant attached with lovely modern touches where a good traditional English Breakfast is served in the morning. Although I use for my business trips, as a summer location to bring the family it is great as only across the road to head down to the lovely sandy Clacton-on-Sea to Holland beach, with nice Café on the sea-Front and short walk to amusements and Pier.
