I recently visited the holiday inn in Basildon. It was honestly such a delight and this was definitely down to the staff and how well they treated us on arrival. George was amazing and made it a great experience that I could enjoy with my family. He was kind funny and friendly

I went to the holiday inn as a surprise from my parents to have a massage and facial for my 21st birthday. After having an amazing pampering with collette, i went to the bar. George's customer service is out of this world and made my day.

Dear cfsrm16, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to the Holiday Inn Basildon. I am sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction with our parking arrangements. We have approximately 25 signs in the car park regarding parking charges including on entry and on exit, in addition to signage inside the hotel as well, which unfortunately it would appear were missed on this occasion. We ask guests to register their cars with reception to avoid any charges. Despite the challenges you faced, I hope that you found the food and service whilst in the hotel to be of a good standard and I hope you will give us the chance to host you again in the future. Kind regards Adam General Manager
