Having stayed in quite a lot of these type of places, Premier Inn are by far the best for the money, especially if you book early and get a flex price. This one in Rayleigh has a friendly reception and typically clean and comfortable rooms. There is no reason in my book why you would not get a good nights sleep here.
The bar/restaurant is just a 30 second walk away and is your typical Harvester type restaurant, so nothing special, but perfectly ok. Though breakfast is served in the main building (breakfast here really is great), and no having to trek outside in the morning either.
Only fault I have is with the shower, it could really do with either a longer curtain or more preferably a shower door. But the shower does have great pressure and is clean - so, other than that it provides all you need.
Would I go back - well, when visiting down this way, it's the only place I re-visit and recommend, so yes :)
