I don't know if i was just unlucky with the room or if its all of them but it had a weird noise coming from the ceiling near the door and it was happening quite frequently which means i couldn't sleep i didn't bother complaining to the reception as i was only staying one night. Apart from that all is... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in late October as an alternative to staying in small cramped London hotels at 2 or 3 times the price. Train station is around 5-6 minute walk and from there 45 min journey to Liverpool Street. Hotel reception staff were very welcoming and informative. They prewarned me about a wedding on Saturday night that... More

Stayed last Sunday night. Great guy on reception at check in, after nightmare road journey down The River M25... Good room overlooking airport (no noise). Better than watching TV. Good bar food and beer and friendly staff. Check out and car parking were fine, again with very helpful staff. Will use again, a great hotel.

This Holiday Inn is as good as any top quality Crowne Plaza, very accommodating staff, easy parking and access to airport with its own train station. Southend town centre is a 4 minute train ride away and London 40minutes. The hotel has the 1935 Rooftop Restaurant & Bar offering spectacular views over the airport and Southend with great food and... More

This was the best birthday meal I have ever had. The ambiance and atmosphere was great, along with the service. I came for my 50th birthday meal and we booked the boardroom at the back of the restaurant, I can’t stress how nice the food was and how lovely all the staff are. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone;... More

I have had reason to stay in this hotel a number of times (9, I think,) over the past 2 months. After the first stay the staff recognised me, remembered my name and were always helpful. This kind of attention is unusual in a big hotel but always makes you feel welcome. The rooms are comfortable, clean and so quiet,... More
