“Great Premier Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for 8 nights this Christmas (2013) staff are so friendly, helpful and pleasant. Very clean rooms and great size. Highly recommend close to airport but very little noise from there lots of parking which is free.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

Another great stay with Premier Inn for £29 for 2 people. It's a 5 minute taxi ride to and from the airport. Room was spotless and modern. Check in and out very quick.Very large bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Premier Inn are a great hotel chain for this type of accommodation.
Used the adjacent pub(part of the hotel chain)for evening meal which was OK. Used the same place for breakfast in the morning. Less impressed, short of staff, had to wait an age to get seated. Toaster was a joke, almost impossible to get the toast out without burning yourself, but don't let that detract from the actual stay.

A very friendly receptionist to greet us! The room was spotlessly clean, the bed comfortable, extra pillows were available in the room. It was also very quiet given the nearness to the airport. There were 2 bathtowels available, but only one handtowel between the two of us. - The waitress in the breakfast room was not exactly friendly, she made us feel like an inconvenience. There were two big bowls of fruit to choose from, but no serving spoons. Plenty of teas to choose from, but only mugs available, nowhere to leave the empty paper casings or teabags once used. The toast machine was a joke, the toast came out charcoaled and you needed tongues to retrieve it. Why not have a proper toaster where the customer can choose the setting? These self service buffetts are all very well, but the customer is doing all the running around apart from being served hot cereal like porridge or an English breakfast. All very disappointing.

Room Tip: There were no problems with the room as far as quietness was concerned

This was our second visit here in as many months. This time we used it as a stopover to Alicante from Southend Airport. The location is great, with the restaurant next door, and Tesco's Superstore across the road. We decided to try the breakfast this time, and found it to be very good. Another good night's sleep. Why can't all hotels have beds like these? Looking forward to our next visit in January.

Stayed for one night prior to getting flight from Southend airport which was five minutes down the road.Wife had stayed at other premier inns before and gave good accounts of them.I too was pretty impressed.Room was large, well appointed and very clean.The bed was also very comfortable.The hotel had a large bar and restaurant attached which served good food and was pretty reasonably priced.You had to pay extra for breakfast but there was a very large choice and you could eat as much as you liked.Only down side was being woken by a mother calling for her son in the corridor upstairs, as has been mentioned in other reviews sound does seem to travel around the building quite easily.I would definately recommend though.

This hotel was excellent value and ideal for the area that we needed to visit. The service in the restaurant was friendly and quick, just what you want. Room comfort was fine and in all everything was fine, just as it should be. Just one problem, I had booked a table for an evening meal the week prior to my stay which no one knew about and had to be re booked for a different time. Apart from this all was very good and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The rooms were excellent, great Premier Inn standard. Staff again excellent. Stay marred by complete lack of sound insulation and could hear people in room above and in corridor.

The location is good for Southend Airport, but the car park poorly signpost and poorly lit. It would be easy to drive past at night. Just look for the Large Tesco.
