“Very comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Having stayed here on six occasions I can certainly guarantee that this is the place to stay. The hotel is most comfortable, clean and very friendly. Breakfast which is first class is served on the premises and there is a pub right beside it, serving great food. Actually, there are at least six other places to eat nearby. If in the mood for some retail therapy, there is a shopping village within a ten minute walk. Special mention needs to be given to Caroline and Avis at the reception desk who couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable.

Room Tip: We have stayed in several and they were all perfect.

A one night stay to attend a wedding nearby. What a find. Comfortable, roomy with excellent service. The reception staff were excellent - a smooth check in with everything explained clearly. They also helped book a taxi at short notice when we were let down by a company we had booked before we arrived.

A comfortable nights stay, you would not believe it was on a busy roundabout on a trunk route.

Used the onsite pub (Fowlers Farm) for dinner. Again great service and traditional pub food.

Expected the usual budget hotel brand but Premier inn Freeport Braintree was a pleasant surprise. The welcome from Diane on reception could not have been better. Check out was efficiently dealt with by Caroline. The rooms, both public and bedrooms were immaculate, all in all a very impressive short stay.

Stayed here for three nights and found the hotel to be excellent. The room was clean and very well laid out with a hair dryer under the mirror and an extra socket for straighteners. There is a pub next door which serves delicious food also a garden centre which was perfect for tea and cakes. Best of all was the friendly staff who were most helpful and always smiling!! I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Firstly I would like to say that the overall service of premier inn was excellent and I very much enjoyed my stay.Carolyn was helpful at reception and was very welcoming. I could hear the road from my room which was a bit noisy but obviously that could not be helped being close to a busy road. The service in the morning was smashing and all breakfast staff was smiley. my waitress Abi was a fantastic pleasure to be around showing me where everything was and if I needed anything was there to be of service. Overall I am very happy with the quality of premier inn

Stayed here in between days out with the children.

Staff were helpful, prior to arrival and when we checked in. Lovely, personable staff make this Premier Inn stand out from the others that I have stayed out. Although staff always pleasant, the lady that checked us in was absolutely charming - an absolute credit to Premier Inn.

A small hotel, but nonetheless had everything we needed at an excellent price.

Great people welcomed us at the front desk. The room was clean, up to date and convenient. And the pub next door was an added treat. We were visiting friends in the area just down the street which made this a great choice for us. The only thing I can add is it was also close to the motor way when we left the next day.

Room Tip: The ground floor behind the front desk is great for those with luggage.
