Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mazzie1311 Accessible Room
We have stayed at this hotel on 4 occasions now as the room is suitable for a full time wheelchair user. The only complaint I would have is that the bath is quite difficult to get in and a level access shower would be much easier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easyover8491 Warm and friendly staff, very good hotel
Have spoken with Kevin - the manager -and told him I am not a great fan of the move from dining upstairs to eating in the bar as I find it rather noisy and not a relaxing enviroment. Suggested that some "diet" options on the menu would be appreciated by those of us who spend half our lives in hotels.
Overall I really enjoy the Basildon hotel , which is why I keep returning every week.

As a regular visitor to Basildon Holiday Inn I would recommend both the location and Parking along with the vast choice of Breakfast items available.
The staff in both the bar and dining room are very helpful and always cheerful.
A good location to eat out if not staying in the hotel for the evening.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DRP1952 Good Place for the hard of hearing!
Notwithstanding that I could hear the person walking around upstairs and there was no staff in the resturant when I wanted to eat I would say this place is ok to stay in.
The Reception Staff were excellent.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Basildon 2 -4th November. Everything was as expected until we went for breakfast the first morning. On finding out where the breakfast was served we realised that the only way to get to the restaurant was by stairs. We asked one of the staff behind the bar how the people with disabilities got to the restaurant and was told by the Stairs. We were not happy about this as partner is not able to climb stairs. One of the managers said we can serve you down stairs in the bar area, we were not happy but went ahead, The service was very good but it did take an age to get it all sorted, they had everything we wanted brought to us. She suggested that the following morning we let reception know when we were intending to come down and they would have everything ready for us which we did and everything came as requested. The only problem was we felt very cut off not being able to access the restaurant and on the sunday morning there were lots of noise and people hanging around in the bar area we felt like we were on show being the only ones eating. Overall it was ok but felt that by requesting a accessable room we should have been made aware of this on booking.

I stay away in a Holiday Inn at least twice each week with Basildon being one of the main locations. All the staff are helpful and friendly with excellent bar and restaurant service.
The rooms are always clean with lots of extra pillows and towls, and excellent parking facilities.
I would recommend staying at this particular Holiday Inn for business along with using the conference facilities.
No request is inconvenient for the staff!!

We went to bed at 10.30pm. At 11.30pm we complained to reception about the noise from the adjoining room - sounded like at least 4 persons. Made another call at 2.30am and again at 3.30am. Noise continued, and we decided to leave the hotel at 4.am. Police were in the reception and we heard them ask a group if they had been taking drugs presume them to have been the noise makers.We had meant to see relatives but drove home for sleep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mrowle10 Hotel Near to Retail Park and London
Was not to sure what to expect from stopping in Basildon but overall I was impressed with the experience.
The hotel was easy to find and was located right next to a retail park, with pleanty of eating options. So if your stopping for business or just a night away it could not be more convenient.
Staff on the front desk and behind the bar were all excellent with plesant smiles and a helpful attitude.
Would I stay there again, yes definitely and I would recommend

I love staying at the Holiday Inn Basildon, it is in the heart of the Festival Leisure Park, so going out for food, cinema or clubbing means no taxis needed. There is plenty of choice in surrounding restaurants, and all the times I have stayed there have never been disturbed by noise. The breakfasts are excellent with a huge choice of food, cooked breakfast or cerals, yoghurt, fruit, etc. Cannot fault this hotel, but if I had to it would be that there are only mini fridges in certain rooms.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Longhaul Excellent staff
Disappointed that the hotel restaurant is now closed in the evening for the next 6 months and if you want to eat at the hotel, you have to eat in the bar area, sat in chairs and at tables that are unsuitable.
You feel forced to leave the hotel and hunt out one of the local fast food restaurant’s with in walking distance
However, I must say, the staff are brilliant and helpful

Although not the newest or plushest of the Holiday Inn Chain this hotel certainly has the friendliest staff I have encountered in any hotel.
The hotel has everything you would expect from Holiday Inn (except Leisure facilities) and is excellent value.
