You can look forward to a warm welcome at the modern 3-star Best Western Thurrock Hotel in Essex.
Lying just off the M25, it's close to the towns of Thurrock, Grays, Purfleet, Tilbury and Dartford. It's also handy for exploring the North Kent coast and dazzling attractions of London, as well as shopping till you drop at Lakeside and Bluewater.
Our 66 comfortable en suite bedrooms, including family rooms, come with complimentary toiletries, hospitality tray, flat-screen TV and free WiFi.
Our a la carte restaurant, bar and lounge serve up tasty food and drink, while the patio and courtyard garden is a lovely spot for private events or evening drinks in the summer. We also offer room service if you fancy a snack in bed.
For a memorable Essex night out, you can't beat our popular murder mystery dinners or soirees with 'Del Boy' and the gang at the Only Fools and 3 Courses dinner. Our entertainment events are perfect for hen parties, office gatherings and birthday bashes.

Younger members of the family are also well catered for, with a specific kids' menu. We even do a children's afternoon tea, complete with triangle sandwiches and mini cupcakes.

Scholars Bar

Our stylish and comfortable Scholars Lounge Bar is a spacious place to meet friends, family or work colleagues. Here you can read a paper over morning coffee, grab a lunchtime snack or linger longer over a more filling meal and dessert.
If you fancy something a little stronger than tea or coffee, we have a fantastic selection of prosecco and champagne by the glass or bottle, as well as wines from around the world, from a fruity Chilean merlot to an aromatic New Zealand sauvignon blanc.

Let us help you create special memories of your big day. Best Western Thurrock Hotel is a popular wedding venue in Essex as it's set in its own pretty grounds and offers great value for money.
Our light and airy Garden Room, with French windows that open out onto the patio overlooking the courtyard, can comfortably hold 120 guests for a wedding breakfast and a further 80 for the evening reception. Our Belmont Suite is ideal for smaller weddings of up to 90 daytime guests and 150 for the evening celebration.
We're licensed for civil ceremonies, so you can get married and have your reception all in the same place.
If you'd prefer a more informal wedding, we'd be delighted to lay on a delicious barbecue or hog roast in the garden.
You don't have to spend thousands on your special day we're happy to help you work to your budget.
