Owner Response
Daniel Beacham, Owner at Best Western Thurrock Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review , we do apologise that we did not meet your expectations. All our bedrooms are NO Smoking , so we apologise that you feel that the room was Smokey . The hotel was converted from a school to a hotel many years ago , unfortunately with the design of the building we can't install lifts. The fire alarm unfortunately had a fault resulting in it keep going off , this has now been repaired and not an issue that normally occurs. We value all our guests and especially the feedback , we will ensure to take your feedback and take actions to improve. unfortunately with the current pandemic most stay overs in hotels are construction works due to the travel restrictions . we again apologise that we did not meet your expectations. Kind Regards Management team
