As a Premier Inn, Festival Park, inside, was as expected (clean and comfortable), sadly the area it is sited in leaves a lot to be desired. The access road is very narrow, overgrown with shrubs on the side, with litter strewn along its whole length, also cars parked on both sides during the day. The Quays, a Fayre and Square...

The inn is as you woul;d expect. With no lift we asked a ground floor but did not get one. The man on reception was one of he could not care. The room is as expected fine and clean. The windows had a security lead so it only opened two inches. tehre was one fan that made so much noise...

We attended a cancer charity event and chose this hotel as it was close to the venue and we had used it before on many occasions without any problems. We booked and paid for a family room however my son was unwell so unable to attend. When returning to the hotel which was after 11pm, we bought our 56 year...

Fab staff - welcoming and helpful. Clean room with plenty of towels and space. Really comfy beds. Will return and continue to use premier inn as our first choice of over night stay hotels. Premier always seem to stick to a relatively high standard wherever you go.

Stayed here for the second time in two months. Last time gave a five star rating and would normally not review again in such a short time. However the room we had this time was near to either a bar or club and the noise on the Saturday night was very loud. To be fair to the hotel when we...

I have stayed at a lot of premier inns and this is the first one I've been very disappointed with. Firstly it was fairly difficult to find even with sat nav and signage is poor. Our room was a long way from reception, up several flights and no lifts so a real trek with lots to carry. The room itself...

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. You'll be smack bang in the middle of an oasis of entertainment, yet right on hand for all the business and leisure highlights of Essex and the east of London, too. You could be hunting down the big brand bargains one minute and riding the big waves on the wakeboarding course the next. Or watch the A-listers on the big-screen at Empire Cinema, then star in your own VIP night out. 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.
