Your Chance to WIN A TWO Night Staycation for TWO at Holiday Inn Basildon

We’ve teamed up with Holiday Inn Basildon to offer our readers the exclusive chance to win a brilliant staycation for two.

The lucky winner and their guest will enjoy a 2-night stay, including breakfast both mornings and dinner one evening, inclusive of a bottle of house wine at the newly refurbished hotel.

Holiday Inn Basildon has recently undergone a £350,000 ‘Open Lobby’ refurbishment. The traditionally separate zones of a reception, lobby, bar, lounge, restaurant and business centre have been merged into one cohesive ‘Open Lobby’ space where guests can operate in a more instinctive, flexible and homely way.

The stylish Open Lobby, designed to provide guests with one multi-faceted public space to eat, meet, relax, socialise and work as they choose, will revolutionise the way guests live and interact in the hotel.

The multi-functioning zones will encourage guests to better use all areas and facilities in a way which works around their lifestyles and preferences, allowing them to blend work and leisure seamlessly, which has become a greater demand in recent times.

Key features of the new Open Lobby include free high-speed Wi-Fi, a ‘To Go’ Café where food and drinks are available around the clock, a versatile dining space with a range of seating from booths to high and low tables, a living-room style Media Lounge with comfy seating, games, magazines and TV and an E-Bar where guests can plug-in with lots of power points, a wireless printer and more.

The Holiday Inn Basildon in Essex, overlooking beautiful gardens and lakes, boasts a modern restaurant and bar and a large meeting and conference academy, with a capacity for up to 300 guests in the largest function space which is suitable for weddings.

The hotel is just a 10-minute drive from the M25, and a stone’s throw away from Basildon station. For those visiting from the City of London or the Docklands for business, direct trains to Fenchurch Street station take just 35-minutes. The surrounding Festival Leisure Park offers dining and entertainment options including a cinema, nightclubs and a bowling alley.

Families will also love the local beaches and the pier at Southend-on-Sea, just 13 miles away.

The hotel offers comfortable modern bedrooms, great meetings & events facilities and is ideal for families as kids stay and eat for free at the hotel restaurant.

The Prize

One lucky winner, and their guest, will receive a two consecutive night stay at the Holiday Inn Basildon in a double or twin room; breakfast on both mornings and dinner along with a bottle of house wine on one evening.
