Hello, I am inquiring about the ‘Sunnyside Hotel’. As a child I used to live there, as my father was the manager. I know it was situated in what is now called Convent Road, and I remember there was a windmill in the middle of a small lake in the garden just behind the hotel. Anyway, I have searched in a number of books about Canvey and have asked people who live on the island about the Sunnyside Hotel but I have always drawn a blank.
Do you have any information about it? I would be grateful if you could confirm that it did exist. Thank you. Regards- Richard Hawkins
(Ed) Richard I have added a photo of the Convent and below is a link to the page about it, if you read part way down the page it tells you a little about it, hence Convent Road. I understand this is the place you are talking about. If you put Sunnyside Hotel in our search engine several articles and comments will come up.
