This hotel needs a total revamp. the minute you leave reception the carpets and doors are filthy. We got to our room(202) , as soon as the door was opened we were greeted by a stale smell. The bed was damaged and the mattress had seen much better days! There was mould on the bath and marks on the walls...

I have stayed in this hotel for one night while on a business trip. I had a lake view room which was a pleasant surprise. The hotel is situated behind the shopping park so there was some noise during the evening. The room itself was ok, there was a desk with comfy chair for work and also an arm chair...

I booked this hotel online through the IHG website approx. 4 weeks in advance of my stay. I booked 2 rooms with two double beds in each room and 4 adults per room, so if you do the math, that equates to 8 adults in total across all 2 rooms. The reservation cost was confirmed at £86 per room online...

I am an Essex resident so know Basildon well, had a minor op at Basildon hospital so booked the holiday inn for one night to make it easier. I love the location, it's the best if you're in Basildon as everything is a 1 minute walk away: restaurants, bowling, cinema, nightclub, bars Staff were the best part, both front desk...

The hotel is in a restaurant park so there is a great choice of places to eat ....TGI Friday, Harvester, McDonalds etc. The hotel is very average but good for a business stay. Everything worked. Ordinary WiFi was fine so no need to pay for high speed unless you are downloading video. Bathroom and beds are fine and there is...

I only stayed for a night. Check in was very slow. Bernadette tried to sort us out but it was clear she wasn't used to a busy reception. There was a mix up with my colleagues booking and we waited for ages to get it sorted and were advised to go back later for the paperwork. We returned 3/4 hr...

Stayed alone for 1 night (Monday night) as I working close by for the day. Room was clean and tidy, check-in was quick and easy, as was check-out. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the hotel bar and plenty of choices for food within a 4 or 5 minute walk from the hotel. I felt the hotel was a little bit dated...

No disrespect to Basildon, or it's inhabitants, but it isn't really a place for a cultural break! I had to come to visit a friend in hospital, and decided to break the process up by staying a night. I chose the Holiday Inn because lets face it, its a no frills experience, but it is reliable. This one in my...
