“Easy Access - Friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

The reception staff were really helpful at check in. We were travelling with our two small dogs and they made us feel very welcome. The room was quite a good size (great as the dogs seem to take up so much space!) and free WiFi was available in the room.
The room and bathroom was clean but slightly tired looking. The extractor fan in the bathroom didn't seem to work, or if it did it was ineffectual. This did make the room quite humid.
The car park was close to the rooms and always had a space.
We did eat our evening meal in the restaurant which was amazing value (2 for the price of 1 night) and quite acceptable as we didn't want to venture far.

Room Tip: Towards the back of the hotel to avoid noise from the car park

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

My boyfriend and I travelled around Essex, Basildon, Southend, Brentwood for the bank holiday weekend. The location is perfect, easy access to wherever you need to go and close to Festival, which is where the nightclubs and restaurants in Basildon are. We never ate at their restaurant, so can't comment.
Negatives- Room was so hot, and only has one window in the room, and we didn't feel safe to leave it open during the night as anyone could have easily climbed in. the shower was rubbish, a big of water dribbled out and as the bathroom had no window it made the room even hotter.
Positives- Free WIFI, big TV, cleaner came and made the bed etc every day, staff at reception were helpful, free carpark and we always got a space.

For the price we paid we can't complain, £160 for a double room for 3 nights!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the motorway

Booked a three night stay here as we had given our daughter and her friend a lift to V-festival. We only wanted a base so that we could explore the surrounding area having never visited Essex before. Our mistake was pre-paying for the hotel, as once we had seen the room, we both decided we couldn't stay! It was dirty, small, too hot and I couldn't even think about taking my shoes off and stepping on the carpet! In the half hour we were there, the human traffic walking past our second floor room was noisy and non-stop. A costly mistake that we won't be repeating!!

Room Tip: Don't bother!

Used a twin room, myself and a friend used hotel for one night, the room was very clean, very soft bed and the power shower was great. The best part was the price of the breakfast, great value and freshly cooked good choice of cold buffet, the staff are very friendly and welcoming, for a 2 star hotel all what we had was excellent. Well done..

My wife & I stayed here for 4 nights whilst visiting family in Essex, close to the A127. Bedrooms have all the usual's & as we had a dog we were on the ground floor with gardens to the front, shower & HOT water to your hearts content,
We were very happy here & will stay again.
If you don't want to pay the resturant prices there are numerous places around, even an Asda for drinks & bickies.
Staff were very polite & always present.

Room Tip: As far away from the A127 as you can!!

This was a nice stay. Very quiet considering how close we were to a major roadway. There was nothing that stood out about this hotel. It was an average hotel. It was nice not to have to pay for wifi in the room and to be able to run a tab on our room.
