Really nice staff and a more than adequate room. no complaints for a budget hotel. Wouldn't say it was anything special as you get what you pay for but all in all a well rounded experience in a god awful location, there's literally nothing to do in the area.

If I was being super picky there wasn't any bacon on the breakfast, but there was scrambled eggs, sausage beans and...

The HI Express Braintree is typical of the brand, reasonable rooms, decent price. There is plenty of free parking and good free wifi. The only downside was I was put on the ground floor and the reception bar area was noisy and disturbed me up until midnight which was excessive for a mid week night. My stated preference was a...

Firstly we had requested a double room and got a twin. We pushed the beds together to reveal sweet wrappers and other debris under the bed. In the bathroom some of the tiles had lifted and water had soaked through to the extent that the floor was springy (room 119), we reported this when we left and was told it...

We were very impressed with the service on check in and again at breakfast (Sue Putt). Nothing was too much trouble for Sue. Our room was not quite ready for us on arrival but she quickly took our bags and settled us in the bar area with a drink. (Better service than we've had at the Park Lane Hilton under...

We booked in advance to stay here for my cousin's 40th birthday party at the nearby Race Course. I managed to tick the wrong box on my booking so had to phone to correct that, and then a week later to give a new credit card as my husband's had been lost and so cancelled. Both times helpful friendly service...

In the relatively out-of-the way town of Braintree is where you'll find this HI Express. Entry is through a series of quick turns between two round-abouts. Don't be surprised if you make a couple loops before making it into the parking area. The staff are friendly and efficient. Joking around during check-in came easy and made for a very pleasant...
