Well what can I say when you book a premier inn regardless of location you expect a certain level, and this was far below any other premier inn I've been too. Firstly the room, although the room was 'clean' there were stains in the carpets (easily shifted with a carpet cleaner) and the toilet was definitely on its way out,... More

WhitbreadHotels, Premier Inn Team at Premier Inn Braintree (Freeport Village) Hotel, responded to this review

Hi there It's such a shame to hear you were disappointed with your stay. Your room doesn't sound up to our usual standard so we'll be passing this on to the Housekeeping and Maintenance Team to work on right away. I'm also sorry to hear about the poor breakfast at the restaurant next door. Although this isn't owned by us,... More

We were pleasantly surprised by our first visit to a Premier Inn the rooms were very comfortable and well laid out and being quite close to a main road it was very quiet so therefore had good nights sleep.

Booked in by one of my suppliers as I was doing a presentation for them. Only 1 night but fine. Clean, good shower, tea and coffee in room. Staff friendly and food next door OK. Plenty of car parking, the only complaint was some noisy revelers leaving the pub but cant blame the hotel for that!

You get very good rest in Premier Inn's beds. But the bedding did not look that fresh, but I am sure it is just not very tidy. The rooms are large, very comfy, again you can see they feel a bit tired. Hate the heating system where you have to switch on each time you come in, by pressing a... More

Brrr...... Every cold room. Reception good and friendly.... Room clean bed was not a king size. Temperature control in the room not good. The heater reached the temperature set and went off. So the room stayed cold all night

No criticisms at all about this Premier Inn - reception desk, and morning breakfast room staff were all helpful, polite, and charming. It was a pleasure to stay here. Bed was super-comfortable. Only negative comment would be that it was a bit too chilly in the room, but that was just a minor thing.

My wife and I stayed here for a trip to a family wedding and to visit family members. The hotel is ideally situated outside Braintree town but right next to main routes into Braintree ~(including Freeport shopping village) - the town being only minutes away. Although close to a main road, the hotel is remarkably quiet. The rooms were excellent.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bag some bargains at the Premier Inn Hotel Braintree Freeport Village - peacefully situated just over half a mile from Freeport Designer Village. We're the same distance from the Freeport Train Station with fast links to Stansted Airport and Greater London. Business guests are also well placed here. Retail might be less on your mind though if you're on the guest list at wedding venues The Fennes, Gosfield Hall and Leez Priory. Or if you fancy history at Hedingham Castle or some outdoor fun at Great Notley Country Park. Whatever brings you to Braintree, enjoy all the comforts you'd expect including an onsite restaurant, a spacious room and a comfy bed. Please note that this Premier Inn does not have a lift. Guests requiring an easily accessible room please contact the hotel direct. Please be aware this Premier Inn only has showers. Please note that all twin rooms at this hotel consist of a double bed and a single sofa bed. This Premier Inn is located near a major road, bedrooms are insulated to minimise noise. Directions: From the M11 junction 8, follow signs to A120 Colchester & Freeport Shopping Village. At Galley's Corner Roundabout, take forth exit and then left into Wyevale Garden Centre.
