Our Premier Inn Festival Park Basildon Essex Experience

We have stayed at this hotel many times but I never got the chance to write about it. I decided to change that this year. We spent 2 nights at this Premier Inn in Basildon and we have done so several times. The hotel location is easy to find and well situated with lots to eat and do around. It is a few mins walk away from a retail park with a cinema, club, bars and restaurants, so no dull moment here. The check in was quick and our room was on the ground floor which was good.

I was happy with the room space. We booked a family room with 2 individual beds for the kids and another king sized bed for us and I was glad we still had some room to keep our luggage.

My Honest Thoughts

Our stay at this Premier Inn was ok overall. The rooms were properly cleaned and the TV and WIFI worked great. I have stayed in so many hotels that struggle with the simplest things so it was great to see this didn’t. The Premier Inn Bedding is also loved by us. I think it is super comfy and I love sleeping on their beds. The only issue we had was with the heating. We were shocked to find out the heating was not working in our ground floor room.

With the drop in temperature, I was shocked I had to bring this to the attention of the receptionist. She did provide two little heaters which she wheeled into our rooms (you can see one of them in the picture above). The heaters worked ok but it was annoying to have to keep manually switching it off and on. It was an inconvenience that we shouldn’t have had to deal with and I hope they sort it out asap.

I don’t see myself returning here again. They have no air conditioning, so we won’t be able to stay here in the summer months and with the inconvenient heating arrangement, we won’t be visiting in the cold months either. I like comfort in hotels. If I have to struggle to get the basic amenities after parting with money, it makes me really grumpy. Having said that, I have stayed in some amazing Premier Inns and will be reviewing them when next I get the opportunity.

  1. Yeah, I do agree! After parting with your money, you shouldnt be inconvenienced at all! That’s why you’ve stayed in a hotel! Oh well, haven’t experienced premiere and I don’t think I would be going any time soon!

    • I was shocked they struggled to provide one of the main essentials this time of the year. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. This hotel looks good, and oh boy there is a tub! More reason for me to stay here in case 🙂
    Glad your babies had an enjoyable stay.

  3. I have never stayed in this hotel, but I appreciate the way you share your thoughts. It’s nice to have clean rooms, WiFi etc, but I feel like what makes the hotel exceptional is attention to the details, and based in your reviews – this hotel has lack of it.

  4. One of the last times I used a Premier Inn I had an issue with the shower. It was impossible to change temperature on it so it was constantly boiling hot. When I left the bathroom after the shower it was like I was walking out on Stars In Their Eyes…and I set the fire alarm off because of the steam. Memories!

  5. Honestly, I don’t see how a hotel these days could exist without having any air conditioning. That would be awful. And you are right, impossible to stay in during the summer months.
