Thank you for taking the time to review The Best Western Thurrock Hotel and we are sorry that your stay was not as wonderful as it could have been. The hot weather did us no favours and yes the rooms did get hot. We are in the process of giving the hotel an upgrade so I do hope that you will stay with us again in the future.

Thank you so much for your feedback and we take all of your points seriously. We had a period were thieves targeted our hotel and the area all around here but this seems to have stopped and we have put all processes in place to try prevent it. I have also spoken to our breakfast supervisor as to why the tables weren't clean and do hope this won't happen again. We hope that you will come back again and stay to show that we really do try our best to ensure a happy and safe stay.
