Premier Inn Hotel Braintree Freeport Village
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Braintree
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I was expecting a budget hotel with budget rooms and budget attitude staff. My expectations were too low - the staff were professional and welcoming (I sat working within listening distance and could not help but be impressed by the greetings and the way the staff went about their morning). The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the shower produced lots of hot water. An excellent night’s sleep and next time I’m in Braintree on business I will be staying here. Recommended!

Stayed hear again, this weekend our 3rd stay over the years. We again found all staff friendly and rooms very clean.

We had a room at the back which was very quite, nothing to look at, but prefer a quite room.

We also had breakfast which. if you have a cooked breakfast it is made to order and is very hot.
The only crumble we had was the staff talking to each other so much while we were eating our breakfast. But we were still served well.

We stay here as a couple so we can visit the outlet centre, and where food and cinema and bowling alley are all near buy.

We only paid 29.00 for our room as booked a while back. We think it's very good value.

Room Tip: A room at the back is quite

Wonderful weekend stay - made all the more memorable by the Staff. Who to a person were kind, most helpful, cheerful and obviously enjoying their work. A real credit to the Premier Inn organisation. Most convenient location for Freeport village. Very little road noise.

Friendly and helpful staff and well located for Freeport Braintree shopping outlet (which I would highly recommend). The room was clean and as you would expect of a budget hotel. The bathroom was adequate but felt a little rough around the edges. Breakfast and service was good. For one night, it was fine and I would go back.

Stayed twice at this hotel and again faultless. Friendly staff and modern clean rooms. It is ideally located just off the A120 and close to the Freeport Village, various food outlets and a pub right next door.

Stayed at the Braintree Freeport Village Premier Inn for another occasion visiting a relative in Essex. The inn is always friendly and welcoming with great customer service standards. On this occasion I left behind some valuables and these were sent to me by recorded delivery. Full marks to the staff at this hotel.
