The hotel was very warm and welcoming on a particularly bleak and bitterly cold day. Only stayed one night after attending a function at the hotel, but it was a very pleasant visit. Delicious breakfast before departing.
Clean, pleasant atmosphere, good food, and value for money Not a big issue but the walk to and from the car park when its raining would not be nice.
A very nice welcoming hotel, friendly bed comfortable & a quiet room evening meal in restaurant was lovely None! Wish there were more hotel like this!
The room was comfortable and spacious.The hotel was pleasant to stay in. The dining and bar staff obviously had some personal differences which unfortunatley was aired infront of guests.
The restaurant service was relaxed and unhurried and food was very good with generous servings huge bathroom small bath, wasted space
Nice room with good view over the countryside. Staff very friendly and helpful Room over the wedding venue so music loud when we arrived however finished promptly at 12 midnight and did not affect our stay
Pleasant surroundings and courteous staff have recommended to colleagues
Friendly, helpful staff, good breakfast. The plumbing in the bath/shower in room 105 needs attention.
Very good facilities overall Drinks prices are a lttle on the high side
Easy access to the tube Car park, could be cleaner, third floor room and no lift, no jaccuzzi
it was good for the money. i didn't like the tiny bed
Friendly, very clean & comfortable and being able to park was a bonus, extremely good value for money. Breakfast was greasy & cold, and our table was not cleaned from the previous people, we went down for breakfast at 9.30am, there were no other clean tables available.
The location is good, very near to the tube station. Rooms are satisfactory according to the price. The staff on the reception was too rude and asked for full payment at arrival, although this was never mentioned earlier. We stayed there on the weekend and the music of the local pub was too annoying and we were not able to sleep
The hotel was situated close to the venue we required. The hotel room was tired, dull and not all together clean. The room was booked as a double but we recieved a room with two single beds pushed together with 2 single duvets instead of a double.
The staff was friendly; I had a parking space; the immediate access to the tube (Central Line) and main roads for a quick get-away; the use of the WLAN; the English Breakfast; the room was clean; the bed was comfortable; the easy access from London-Stansted airport. Overall, I had a really nice stay and would come back anytime. That the bed rolled away when leaning against the wall to watch TV (just a minor thing that can easily be fixed by a stopper).
Very conveniently situated, close to tube trains, buses, shops and restaurants. Greatest boon for me was having a car park. Stayed on a very warm Saturday night, and was unable to keep the windows open because of the noise from the cocktail bar and night club.
the room was clean, there was no hassle at reception everythig was in place. the room smelled a bit musty it needed airing especially as they knew guests were coming in.
Het is een eenvoudig hotel. Onze kamers waren schoon, bedden waren goed. Prijs was in goede verhouding met kamers
Great value and breakfast included in the rate.No aircon but windows opened OK. No parking available in hotel grounds - forced to park in public car park 500 metres away. Because windows opened for air the traffic noise was quite audible as room face the main road!
Walking distance to London subway (10-15 mionutes), next door to gas and Tesco supermarket, plenty of free gated parking, best price around for a London area hotel. No air conditioning, and city noise is loud when window is open. Rooms are very small, no chairs.
Ambience On the expensive side
the large queen bed i booked a excutive room .with smoking preference,i got a jnr room and no smoking .menu could have had more choice on it for the money i paid .
old styling of hotel and bathrooms. the rudeness of the staff, over priced, mice in our room, not pleased with how we were treated when we had house keeping walk in on the morning and tell us that they were told that the room was meant to be enmpty!
Very atmospheric with genuine Tudor interior features
Everything was quite pleasant.
it was nice & quiet for the whole time we were there
Restaurant was brilliant
Had a superb six course dinner with the menu chosen by the chef along with 6 matching wines. Lovely evening. It did not have a swimming pool.
Rooms a little dated
Evening staff very attentive to needs and accomodating. Good room layout. We stayed as part of a group and booked seperately. Room prices did vary by £40 and the cheaper booking included breakfast. I asked if breakfast could be included in our booking as a 'good will' gesture as we were paying additional £40, receptionist not at all sympathetic, quite patronising and would not make any consession.
Excellent room, very clean. Mini bar massively overpriced, staff a little clueless at reception
Very clean and a nice comfotable double bed Nothing
Location Lack of cleanliness, chaotic management and lack of staff control.
It was convenient for our weekend We had to change rooms as the shower didn't work in the first room; and breakfast was very expensive for what it was!!!
It's a really relaxing hotel, just like home None
Large, comfy room with good facilities and a nice pool and fitness area.
It was an ideal location for the purposes of our stay. The bathroom light turned itself off at random intervals which was a shock when you were in the midde of a shower to be left in the dark. Also considering it was November the bed linen wasn't particularly very thick or plentiful.
Comfortable room Hotel building has no charm at all and is very worn and frayed at the edges.
Bed Comfort , Quiet Breakfast started late, No snacks available on evening arrival other than minibar - bring back the coffee bar!
Very relaxing good value for money Bathroom needs a revamp
staff were very friendly and accomodating would come back
Pleasant dining room, staff very helpful,food very good, room excellent, even though we did request a first floor room.access not a problem despite disibility. None.
Nice large clean room Only warm bath water, small toilet tissue difficult to use, beds hard and uncumfortable
Friendly staff, nice clean place, staff keen to put things right Traffic noise, slow dinner service, lukewarm breakfast buffet items, eggs very overcooked,bath overflow pipe went onto floor rather than down drain. no kettle in room just the base.
Everything, was lovely, just as we expected. The shower gel dispenser didn't work in our room, but always has in the other Premier Inn's we've stayed at so it isn't too much of a problem.
Location to the station The car park was a bit of a state
New, nice, comfortable, clean, good staff. English hotels are always very bad, but this was extra good.
Auto check in was not explained and something we weren't used to and after spending some time being assisted by a staff member, he then changed our room allocation for a higher floor, which he did manually and took ages to action - would have been quicker if he'd done it manually in the first place or asked us where we'd like to have a room if there were so many available. Poor lighting, insufficient area and poor lighting for hair drying - kettle etc in the way, horrible soap, bedside table area too small, window opening not wide enough, disturbed by doors slamming to other rooms in the night and early morning, bed too firm, room rather small - what size was Lenny Henry staying in?
The staff were excellent. The man on reception I would single out when we booked in. He went far beyond what would expect and is a credit. Nothing. It was a good stay.
it was close to some nice resturants and clubs. the room was spotless but got very hot with heating on all night. staff very friendly and helpfull drinks at bar very expensive in hotel so went to harvester for driks which was alot cheaper
room was nice. front desk staff very helpful. Good choice at breakfast cold lobby area and entrance, and breakfast room was rather cold but it was a very cold and windy day
very comfortable room, clean, all facilities nothing, was very happy with room and service provided
Common areas were ok, room was large and bright Decor needed refreshing
location and comfort Could do with a refresh in decor.
Friendliness of staff in the bar Interior (carpets, panels etc.) is worn and need replacement, fresh paint etc.
Good for Business a little bit pricey
Convenietly located for what we had to do. Room was quiet despite a wedding party taking place
The fact that we were given complimentary breakfast, a bottle of wine sent to our room and charged half price because the booking had been messed up. Although I had requested a non smoking room, they said that because my confirmation slip only said 'non smoking preference', it wasn't guaranteed. I had requested a standard room, thinking it was a double, and they said it was a twin. I was also told that because others had paid deposits rather than just given payment details, they were given priority, even though I booked the room through this website before the majority of guests. As I was in tears at reception, because I was made to feel as if I had done something wrong, another receptionist took pity on me and tried to help with the goodwill gesture. The Duty Managers said that I had to put up with a smoking twin as that was all that was left. Not at all impressed with website or hotel
Quick and easy book in /out
the evening menu and food were good long walk in the rain from room to dining room!
The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and functional. The room faced onto a very busy road which was noisy most of the night.
convenient location friendly and efficient staff comfortable room nothing
Handy for my then needs difficulty of handling curtains and lack of A/C
I Have never been to a hotel before that had actual duvets rather than bed sheets :) and the total black out blinds were brilliant
Clean and close to town centre
Ease of location
Convenient on-site restaurant Poor sound insulation between rooms
Very good service, quiet and very clean
very comfortable and beyond the standard anticipated at the price. A very enjoyable stay and I will be returning
Everything is as I would expect. Stated while there to the manager about placing a modesty board on the split level dining as while seated on the lower area , it was possible to see the other female diners under garments which made me feel very uncomfortable .
Only disappointment was booking in it took too long
everything fine - as always in Basildon the same as ever ;-)
the best budget hotel in Basildon
Facilities good, bright, clean, warm, friendly.
The staff were very unhelpful because it was only on arrival that we were advised we had to pay for our stay in advance. Unlike most hotels that let you pay at the end of your stay. The hotel e-mailed me on the day that I arrived in England, and as I was travelling never got round to receiving the notification. Not impressed with having to find cash to pay as we were not financially prepared to pay upfront.
No shampoo in bathroom, towel rail does not work, service in restaurant is very slow
Reception very helpful and informative on our arrival. All staff were cheerful and friendly. The room was comfortable and clean. Staff at breakfast particularly good.
Staff at the Beefeater restaurant made a great effort but the table tops were 'sticky' and the cutlery stained. Bed could have been firmer
Usual Premier Inn facilities, good breakfast and politeness of staff.
Staff were very welcoming. The breakfast and dinner were excellent and very good value for money. The restaurant manager was very polite and couldnt do enough for me. No lift
Good price for Hotel standard, excellent breakfasts. Good proximity to relatives visited in South Benfleet Noise from movement by people on 1st floor could easily be heard in Ground floor rooms.
Standard and space of the room, car parking, Beefeater arttached to hotel, overall cost, friendly stafrf Nothing to comment
restaurant and pub next door
Very pleasant staff Mattress very very saggy
The location was excellent Difficult to sleep - the pillows were far to large ! No that is not a wind up either.
comfortable beds no clear insructions for resetting the room heater and bathroom towel rail would niot heat. Also more than two tea/coffe/sugar per room would ne appreciated. I know we could have asked for more but we went and brought some.
You know what you get with a premier inn (usually). Tv didn't work properly, no breakfast available because of time I was leaving (other hotels have compromised and made something available).room cleaning has been to a higher standed in other hotels of this chain.
Easy to find. Clean. Friendly staff. Traffic noise.
All aspects were first class nothing to dislike
the tranquility and proximity to high street and above to reaching the excel centre in time. saturday and sunday breakfast is servered earlier and the dinning room doors are locked very early in my opinion. I dont think it is necessary to lock the entrance of the dinning room. On wednesday when i was checking out, i went to deposit my case at the dinnig room according to instructions i got from the front desk but to my greatest astonishment i found a male member of staff smoking in the dinning room by the breakfast counter. I think it against policy.
helpful reception staff
Value for money it is not luxurious but it is clean friendly with excellent breakfast. Water pressure seems vaiable over 2 stays
With the price you get this hotel room for, everything it offers is a steal deal. The hotel is located in a calm area but not far from the train station or the center of Ilford. It is very clean and the room service is done everyday. Excellent Wifi and that is free!! I will definetly stay here again if I come to Ilford and ofcourse if the room rate remains within the current range. [Note :The hotel may accomodate the guests in different buildings around the main building and you need to go to the main building for the reception or for breakfast which is like taking 20-30 steps from your room!! No big deal though!!] Nothing
The rooms were comfortable and clean and we had a very enjoyable stay. The hotel could be a little bit tricky to get back to using public transport. It was easy to get into the centre but not as easy to get back.
Nice friendly staff with spacious room. Excellent Halal Breakfast and free wifi+parking was a bonus.Close to Ilford Town centre and shops. Rooms could do woth some renovation.
Breakfast Far from undeground, too cold in the room, absence of tableware
Smoking allowed in room No bathroom. The toilet was in a closet, and the bathtub in the bedroom. The breakfast was very poor. You could feel the springs through the bed.
Too many to mention!! Review has already been left on trip advisor that touches on some of the low points!
