Starting to become a regular at the Holiday inn - Southend, staff starting to know me by name. restaurant service is good, rooms clean, car-park secure. Reception staff always helpfull, in fact all the staff that I come into contact with are helpfull. Only negative is the fact that the room windows don't open - I prefer fresh air!

Stayed here for 5 nights with work and everything is to the highest standard. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left all staff were lovely and helpful. The rooms were modern and clean with everything you could need. The food for both breakfast and evening meal was delicious! Fully recommend this hotel to anyone

We stayed 2 nights. We were surprised that there was a charge for the car park, which involved tickets and processing at the desk each time we went in and out, which was a bit of a pain. The room was what you would expect, clean and comfortable. Ours had a floor to ceiling window overlooking the airport terminal and... More

I stayed here with my 10 year old for a weekend away. I booked one of the executive rooms. I was given a room on the first floor, room 101. No no no. Firstly if you are claustrophobic this a room to avoid because there are no windows and you can hardly see through the opaque glass so you feel... More

Very clean, very quiet very friendly staff. Excellent quality rooms, great nights sleep. Good quality breakfast. Right next to the airport - no point using it if you want to be close to the town centre. Staff prepared to serve you at the bar all through the night. You use again without hesitation. Free Wi-Fi for as many devices as... More

OK, I know the one I reviewed a week ago at Stansted Airport was a Holiday Inn Express but the difference was simply remarkable. I have stayed here overnight a couple of times before and always had a great experience. Staff at reception are friendly and efficient. Our Executive Leisure room was spacious and pristine. The king sized bed and... More

Stayed here for just one night and had room service. The room was really nice and clean, modern and had everything you needed. We had room service which did take a while to be delivered but was very nice once it arrived, albeit a little on the expensive side. I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay again.
