The Hotel Kynoch
Scott's 1906 "Holland-in-England"
The Hotel Kynock is situated three miles from Benfleet, and commands the finest view in the Island of the great waterway to the Metropolis, together with the Kentish shore rising on the other side of the Thames. The merits of this hostelry under the able management of Mr. and Mrs. Bee are undeniable, and a yachtsman harbouring his little craft at Hole Haven, can obtain for the modest tariff of two shillings an excellent table d’hôte luncheon. If the business or professional man wishes to find a “rest haunt,” to obtain complete relaxation for the mental or physical strain on his faculties, a week-end spent at the Hotel Kynock will certainly provide him the essential recuperation. lie can sit of the sea-wall, or walk to that charming spot “Shell Beach,” without fearing to meet crowds of trippers. This simple wholesome life far removed from the maddening din of the busy streets must surely appeal to him!
