A welcoming Braintree hotel with free Wi-Fi near Stansted Airport and Chelmsford City Racecourse.
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.
Keen shoppers will delight in designer brands at Freeport Braintree Mall, and outdoor enthusiasts can hike through Great Notley Country Park. Guests with business in Braintree or nearby Colchester have a handy base to operations with two fully equipped meeting rooms – though you might prefer to talk shop at the nearby Braintree Golf Club. Less than 10 minutes from the wedding venues of Fennes, Gosfield Hall and Leez Priory, this pet-friendly Braintree hotel is also popular with families visiting Essex on holiday.
At this hotel, you can enjoy free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, free parking on-site, and an included Express Start Breakfast buffet.
Our cosy, smart guest rooms come with black-out blinds for a peaceful night's rest, while family rooms include a sofa bed for the kids. In the evening, head to the Sage Restaurant for a delicious home-style meal. 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.
All of our hotels use the IHG Green Engage system, an innovative online environmental sustainability system that gives our hotels the means to measure and manage their impact on the environment. It’s our way of making sure we’re protecting our surroundings for our guests today, and tomorrow.
