Customer Reviews
Overall Rating 4
based on 1 reviews.
Customer Rating: Ms Lear, Southend-on-Sea The room was quirky but small bathroom a good size. The best part of this deal was the breakfast. Excellent choice - cold buffet very good. Hot breakfast cooked to order and therefore fresh and hot. Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs; eggs benedict and eggs royale part of the standard menu. Would stay at the bull for the breakfast alone!
