I had two quiet and comfortable nights at this hotel. I usually stay in Southend but that hotel was charging silly prices for the period of my stay, so I stayed here and drove the 11 miles into Southend. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were up to the usual Premier standard; all the facilities worked. However, the kettle was painfully slow. Don't know why Premier don't upgrade to a quicker, more efficient model.
The connected Beefeater was good also (which was a surprise because my last experience of them was not good). Breakfast was good, and I had a meal each evening that was good quality. The Beefeater was extremely busy. I was told another local Beefeater had closed because of an emergency. Although the staff were rushed they did not skip on service.
The car park was large enough and the small river running through the grounds was picturesque. I enjoyed the stay and would use this hotel again.
