Premier Inn Basildon South Hotel
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Basildon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 May 2013

Stayed for 2 weeks in April 2013.
My husband and I always stay at Basildon South whenever we come for a holiday from Australia to visit friends and family. Each and every time we find ALL the staff warm, friendly, helpful and always with a smile. The rooms are always clean, tidy & very comfortable with everything you need - but if you want more, all you have to do is ask! Most importantly the beds are comfortable for a really good night sleep with a choice of firm or soft pillows. It is conveniently next to A13 to get to tons of places but also right next to Corringham/Stanford-Le-Hope for any little things you might need. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when I come to England. Thanks again Basildon South for another lovely relaxing stay.

Stayed at the Basildon South Premier Inn this last week for two nights. Everything about the booking was first class and couldn't have been greeted by any friendlier and welcoming staff. A special mention here to Joy who was the lady on reception who greeted us, I had made two separate bookings for the two nights and she had noted this and had already sorted that we would be in the same room for the two nights with no need to move. Her customer service is outstanding, nothing was too much trouble for her and was just a lovely lady to talk to in general!

The hotel is very close to the main road but you would never know, the rooms block out almost all of the external noise. Site was perfectly located for the purpose of our visit which was to visit friends who live locally, easy to travel to and from and lots of parking available - even with the very busy (& yummy!) Beefeater next door.

Had a thoroughly enjoyable visit at this hotel, we did encounter some noisy neighbours on the second night (a hen party and a stag party) but I guess this wasmto be expected with big parties. Yet again though Joy excelled with superb customer service, I mentioned to the girl on the desk when asked if everything had been ok with our stay and mentioned in passing about how it had been slightly noisy. Later that day whilst travelling home I received a phone call from Joy who had just come on shift, and apologised for the noise, they had been unaware of the stag party booking as all had booked individually (the hen party had been suitably catered for as a group to cause as little disruption to other guests as possible) and told me that under the good nights sleep policy she had refunded our room for the second night - completely unexpected but a lovely gesture and a lovely personal touch with the call. Thank you Joy for everything, absolute star employee!

Would definitely recommend to others and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future when visiting my friends.

Friendly Desk Staff, A Spotlessly Clean & Comfortable Large Family Room situated by the A13 for easy access to Southend (15mins) or the M25 (15mins) .. Beefeater restaurant next door if you need something close by for eats or drinks; Free parking.. Excellent value for £25 which is what I paid

We stayed here for one night and have used this hotel in the past. Standards are consistently good - helpful staff; rooms clean and well equipped; bed very comfortable; breakfast up to usual high standards. Altogether, another excellent stay and highly recommended.

We stayed here for 5 nights over Easter and must say it was one of the best Premier Inns we have stayed in. Although you are near a main road and a railway line, it is very quiet in the rooms The rooms were spotless, although needs more tea, coffee and sugar. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially the receptionist called Lyn who went out of her way to greet you and chat with you. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Breakfast was well worth the money and plenty of it. Definitely would stay again.

Room Tip: There is no lift so if you have anything heavy ask for ground floor room

BRILLIANT!!!
Absolutely lovely. My family loved it. Rooms were spotlessly clean and quiet. Staff were friendly and EXTREMELY helpfull (lovely gentleman named Adey charged my Sat Nav up for me otherwise we would have been lost).
Beefeater next door was also great. Friendly and helfull...big size meals and "best burger my daughter has ever had" lol.
The breakfast had a huge choice to choose from and was much needed. Served all very quickly.
ONLY downside is the white of the eggs were a bit 'snotty' :-)
Upon leaving the cleaning staff were all smiles and also held the door open for my daughter who was on crutches whilst I had luggage.
A lovely stay. Next time I visit my friend I will choose the Haywain again.
And will spread the word.
Keep up the good work chomies

I've stayed in a number of Premier Inn properties; they vary a little bit in terms of overall decor but they are good value for money.

As other people said, the Front Desk people were uniformly polite and cheerful and I was very impressed that they (a) called me prior to my check-in to ask if I'd like to reserve a table for dinner (as the restaurant is busy) and (b) found them outside in the morning de-icing all the car windshields.

Some more expensive properties might take note and it just highlights the fact that good service is teh starting point.

Room Tip: Get one facing the car park rather than the road and down the end of the hall is a good idea.
