Hello Tommiddle, Thank you for leaving us your review and for making us a part your visit here in Basildon. We are grateful that you've chosen the Holiday Inn to host you. As always, we wanted nothing more but to ensure your experience turn as positive as possible. Though it made me smile that we were able to please your senses with the hotel interiors, location, and the corridors, I'm sorry that it wasn't the same story all throughout. I regard your thoughts about your perception of our staff, the hallways, and the wall in your friend's room. I'm sorry that this stay didn't go as perfectly as planned, Tommiddle. Don't worry, I took the necessary steps to ensure our management gets to read your post and be discussed amongst all concerned staff. We are always on the lookout for ways to make your experience memorable. Reviews such as this goes a long way in identifying areas where we can improve. We may not have gotten off the right foot but I'm positive to make it better for your next stay. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay with us. Best regards, Frank A. Case Manager IHGService
