    I haven't popped in here for years. I just don't understand why it's so quiet. The bowling is great at much better & affordable prices than Basildon. There games area is great with lots of pool/snooke...  more »

    Used to visit here as a youth and it was so exciting. Now it's predominantly a bowling alley centre, which, to be fair, is fun and was well used by families when I visited. From the outside the place ...  more »

  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception in the Kursaal Function Suite last Thursday, and what a great day it was. The ambiance was lovely, but what made it special was the excellent food provided by the chef (many guests said they had never had a better meal at a wedding), and the superb service by the bar/waiting staff, who never stopped smiling and were unbelievably friendly. The DJ was excellent too, and the price more than reasonable. We had a wonderful day.
  • I recently arranged my father’s wake with the function suite, Catherine and all of the staff was absolutely brilliant and the food was superb. I would definitely recommend the venue.
  • Was just not worth my time or money. The staff were rude. They had no time for my family or for our terminally ill child!! :(
  • Big thank you to all the staff at the Kursaal function suite. We had our company training day last week and was very impressed with the level of service. The room was clean, well maintained and the air conditioning was a big plus point. Refreshments and food was excellent. We have been to other venues in southend and not been as good as the kursaal. Big Thankyou * James : AG Fabrications Limited
  • Disgusting Customer Service: Like the other reviewer below i found their service appauling and rude. Both members of staff at the kursaal were disgustingly rude and insulting whilst i was viewing the venue for a wedding.They were advertising services for cheaper than they were prepared to offer. When challenged on this, instead of admitting a printing mistake and apppologising, I was told i had misread the poster, interpretted it wrong, its just "business" and was finally insulted for reading a poster that they had produced and put on display. Very disgusting service from the gentleman there, spoke to me rudely and told me i "better go somewhere else then". Such a shame that a beautiful venue is let down by such poor staff and manners, who would trust such people to assist in their wedding day????
