A warm and welcoming Braintree hotel near Stansted Airport and Chelmsford Race Course.

A 15-minute drive from Stansted Airport and just over an hour by train from central London, the Holiday Inn Express® Braintree hotel offers a quiet, comfortable place to rest and recharge on the edge of the English countryside. You can park for free, check into one of 76 cosy, modern rooms with inclusive Wi-Fi and a sofa bed, then head to the Great Room Restaurant for a home-cooked meal. In the morning, an Express Start™ Breakfast is also included, helping you fuel up for a shopping spree at Freeport Braintree, or a ramble through Great Notley Country Park.

Guests with business in Braintree or nearby Colchester have a handy base of operations, with two fully equipped meeting rooms for hosting clients and colleagues – though you might prefer to talk shop at Braintree Golf Club, 10 minutes away.

Less than 10 minutes from the wedding venues of Fennes, Gosfield Hall and Leez Priory, the pet-friendly hotel is also popular with families visiting Essex on holiday. Chelmsford City Racecourse is two miles away, and when the last horse has passed the post, the Lounge Bar makes a lively spot for drinks.

With the historic charms of Braintree on the doorstep and green fields all around, the Holiday Inn Express Braintree hotel offers the best of British town and country at an affordable rate.

Guest Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 222 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient Obviously short-staffed, receptionists were doubling up (cheerfully) as serving staff. The company is probably lucky to have two such competent front-desk staff. I am an IHG shareholder - and was pleasantly surprised by both hotel and the Toby Carvery, mainly due to the staff, dedicated, friendly and efficient. Full marks for the training they receive and to local management who motivate them. April 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good room excellent reception service We only stayed one night arriving late after a long drive, closer to the road with road noise evident but as tired slept through. Otherwise may have been an issue. Staff and room faultless. April 19, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OK but could be/should be much better. I booked my stay in this hotel based on experience I had staying here previously when it was owned by another chain. I was very disappointed to find that the fitness suite had been removed, especially given that other Holiday Inn Express Hotels have fitness suites. Also the formerly excellent WIFI had been replaced by an unworkable service that was far slower than mobile 3g/4g in the area, again this is not my experience of other Holiday Inn Express Hotels, therefore its obviously a local issue. The breakfast is standard for Holiday Inn Express Hotels but that doesn't excuse how poor it is. Poorly cooked sausage, beans and scrambled eggs no bacon, mushrooms etc etc. Id rather pay for a decent breakfast than deal with this, Plus points - The staff were excellent and the rooms are very good. Also there is now a Toby Carvery within 2 mins walk of the hotel so that was helpful. As a business traveller I rely on three things. Decent WIFI, a gym and good breakfast and sadly this venue cannot provide any of these things therefore I will be looking elsewhere in the future. April 19, 2015
