We both really enjoyed what was our first ever visit to the Roslin Beach Hotel, right from the moment we arrived, we were met by very friendly and efficient staff. We were allowed to go to our table before our pre-booked time, and then shown what was on the menu, asked if we required the alternative choice, then, when the food arrived, were asked if we wanted an explanation of what was being served. After that , we were asked if everthing was ok, and our teapot 'refilled' when it ran low of tea Would definitely recommend to friends and family

We booked sparkly afternoon tea and we're served with our champagne quickly but then waited some time for the food and had to ask for some tea! However once we had it all we thoroughly enjoyed it and there were more than enough cakes to go round!

Afternoon tea for my baby Shower was lovely and service good, although slightly disappointing table wasn’t ready at time of booking.

Food was tasty and a good choice for vegetrian option. However, staff were a bit slow and not very attentive- which isn't great when you are forced to pay a service charge of £12. Also, for £30 a head I'm not quite sure if it is worth it, as for only £20 extra you can dine at the ritz?

Friendly and approachable staff, lovely afternoon tea. It was for my mums birthday and we both had a lovely time. Only comment I will make is that the tables next to eachother were very close, so when another 2 people sat next to us we felt we couldn’t have a conversation as the other people were really loud which did ruin the experience slightly.

Your staff were magnificent and everyone loved that they were given 'doggy bags' to bring home. Not many afternoon tea places do that and it was appreciated. Please pass on my thanks to everyone.

Afternoon tea was worth every penny. Loved the atmosphere & how we were allowed to leisurely take our time. Excellent touch at the end to have our uneaten treats packed up for us.

I have been there many times and would have preferred the bigger room to the left of the building as you face the sea. I didnt like the smaller room. However the staff were brilliant the food was average and definately not value for money .Having said that I would recommend it for an experience as there is not much around Southend

Although our table wasn't ready when we arrived we were shown to a table in the bar area and offered drinks whilst our table was prepared. The staff are extremely attentive and having been before our visit was just as good as the last. Also, loving the little take home boxes. Looking forward to the next time.

There was no mention that afternoon tea prices were plus VAT so was rather surprised to find an additional £18 on my bill . This should be pointed out before hand

Lovely afternoon.pleasant welcome,seated promptly,although we were 10 mins early. We had booked for the sparkling tea,and the champagne was brought when we were comfortably seated. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Husband had requested white bread with the beef and horseradish sandwiches, usually granary.. which they forgot to do, but this was dealt with before we had even realised,and more Sandwiches were brought over immediately with apologies. Lovely sandwiches too! Mini size quiches were gorgeous, wanted to snatch my husbands one too.! Lovely array of mini cakes and giant scone, with good selection of small pot jams and Clotted cream, which was not skimped on.scone was of good quality. The ambience was relaxed, and surroundings very pleasant and roomy. We couldn't eat ALL the cakes, but were provided with a box to take them home. All in all a lovely experience. No problems, just one chipped cup which was immediately replaced, maybe it would be nice to see the staff uniformly dressed, as it was a bit difficult to tell customers from staff.

Great food Service over the top too many staff waiting to pounce on your every move which spoils the atmosphere making you feel rushed. Great decor and surroundings. Had a voucher for the afternoon tea but was then presented with a bill for 10% service charge. which I feel was very cheeky

Whilst it was nice not to be rushed, the food seemed to take an age to arrive, however the waitress was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The food was lovely, and the whole ambience made it a very special occasion. It's an expensive high tea, so bear in mind that you are paying for the whole experience. I would go again for a special occasion, and would recommend it to anyone.
