If travelling to Festival Park this place is a much better choice than Holiday Inn or the Travelodge. It's about a 2 minute walk from the main bars etc but it's a lot quieter. Rooms were very good, clean and looked new.

Due to apparently having too many people in our room the night manager and security man decided to kick us out at 2.00 in the morning! Didnt realise that having 2 adults in a room was a problem. However my friend was talking to the manager (Pieor) (spelt something like that) at the door to our room, holding it open...

Service, room, car parking, cleanliness, quiet night - all very good. Breakfast OK - separate building and a bit tired but not a real problem. Expensive but that's the local market. A bit above the rest of the other options in the immediate area.

Relaxing and quiet! To get to this hotel you have to drive pass the Travelodge/Fitness first on your left and then take a left turn after David Lloyd's Gym. Do not go towards holiday inn or you'll be heading down the back road with big puddles and will end up hurting your car.

I thought this hotel was very nice and comfortable and good value for money. The rooms were very clean and although some people had put about road traffic noise we did not hear anything at all. It is in a very good position with plenty of restaurants around to choose from. Parking was also very easy even on a Saturday...

Finding this is difficult when using a sat nav, particularly at night. From the main carpark has a narrow and long access roadway which is tight and badly lit and floods during rain. Also as there are no signs for the Premier Inn, which I gather the local council does not permit. The PI's car park is small, poorly lit...

Hotel & Separate restaurant staff were very pleasant & helpful, the location is tricky to find hidden behind a shopping complex & leisure centre ... access roads are very narrow & double parked. But the hotel & restaurant / bar were fine for an overnight stay

Well presented but small room. The walk to the restaurant is a pain, particularly as it was -4 in the morning. The area surrounding the hotel is poor, does nothing to provide a positive initial impression. Not the easiest place to find either. Room price is on par for the area though still expensive. Restaurant is the usual chain experience,...

Stayed for 15 nights. Excellent hotel with excellent staff. Really enjoyed my stay. Will definitely recommend, and thank you for the helpful receptionists. The room was clean, tidy and warm. Did not have breakfast but a good cappuccino.. ate at the restaurant as well.

Let the good times roll with a stopover at our Basildon hotel, featuring our new generation bedrooms with an impressive 40" flat screen TV, freshly-updated bathroom with a large shower head, and brand new, slumber-inducing, king-size Hypnos bed.

And when you're ready to drop, our traditional restaurant and super comfy new rooms will be waiting for you. Situated 9 miles from the M25(J29). Follow the A127 towards Basildon.
