Positive Reviews

So fresh and so clean

Built in 2012, Holiday Inn Southend is brand spanking new and the housekeeping staff really knows how to make it sparkle 21st Century travellers will appreciate both the spotlessness and state-of-the-art facilities.

A pleasant front desk starts your stay right

As any hardcore tourist or entrepreneur knows, every time you check into a hotel can make or break your stay (or at least sour the milk somewhat) Fortunately, guests of this hotel will enjoy the genial, helpful staff who always greet you with smiling faces and agreeable tones.

A traveller’s delight

A minute’s walk of the Southend London Airport, ten mintues from Southend Airport Train Station and near the A127, travellers are perfectly situated for all their holiday or business needs Whether flying, driving or taking the train, you can get a good night’s rest far from the bustle and still jaunt off to London or other parts of the country.

Negative Reviews

Free Internet may leave you hanging

While the hotel offers courtesy Wi-Fi, unfortunately the free service only lasts for a little while and can be variable in both speed and signal strength There are, however, more powerful options for wireless and wired Web, but they will cost extra.

The carpark may take your bank account for a ride

One pleasant perk of staying in some hotels near the airport is the complimentary parking—unlike leaving your car at the airport Unfortunately, Holiday Inn Southend is not one of those hotels But while parking onsite will set you back, it’s still likely cheaper than parking at the airport’s facilities.

You might get squeezed out of the small restaurant

By most accounts, the 1935 Restaurant and Bar serves quality seafood and local favorites It also rewards diners with lovely vistas of Essex and the airport from the fifth floor Whether it’s the views or the food, some visitors found it difficult to get a table, especially on weekends Others have also found the prices a little high Budget-minded or impatient travellers may wish to explore Southend for alternate fare.
