So far we have never stayed at a Premier Inn before and having paid only 29£ we expected something similar to a Travelodge.
We were really surprised to find a modern, spacious room with a huge comfortable bed (comparable to those comfy Hilton beds) and a large TV. Staff was super friendly and as other reviewers have pointed out it was very quiet. we didn't hear any noises from outside nor inside the building. There are lots of dining options nearby and Freeport Designer Village is only 2mins. away. If you have a late flight into Stansted I would definately drive those 15mins. again and stay here at the Premier Inn rather than staying at one of the airport hotels. You will get much more rest and have more dining and shopping options.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Bag some bargains at the Premier Inn Hotel Braintree Freeport Village - peacefully situated just over half a mile from Freeport Designer Village. We're the same distance from the Freeport Train Station with fast links to Stansted Airport and Greater London. Business guests are also well placed here. Retail might be less on your mind though if you're on the guest list at wedding venues The Fennes, Gosfield Hall and Leez Priory. Or if you fancy history at Hedingham Castle or some outdoor fun at Great Notley Country Park. Whatever brings you to Braintree, enjoy all the comforts you'd expect including an onsite restaurant, a spacious room and a comfy bed. Please note that this Premier Inn does not have a lift. Guests requiring an easily accessible room please contact the hotel direct. Please be aware this Premier Inn only has showers.
