I had been advised to stay at the HI Basildon by work colleagues as the best of the bunch of the hotels in the area. I only needed one night on the Friday as we attended a wedding on the Saturday at
It was fine for the one night but I would not like to stay long term as the lounge/bar area felt a bit souless and impersonal. The standard rooms and bathrooms are bit on the small side but again for one night was perfectly adequate.
The only food we had in the hotel was breakfast and this was very good, lots of choice and variety and I am a pickie eater.
The staff at the hotel are very friendly and attentive.
If you can get room overlooking the lake then do so as it is a very pleasant view. [Less]
