Whilst not a central London hotel, the Palms Hotel Hornchurch is an excellent choice for those staying in Essex who nonetheless would like the option of travelling into the city centre, made possible due to the hotel's close proximity to Upminster Station on the District line. By staying in Hornchurch guests are opened up to a range of possible attractions that would not be found in London itself, including Bluewater shopping centre and Brands Hatch racing circuit. The seaside resort of Southend-on-Sea and the corresponding Southend Airport are not much further afield, making this a good base just outside of London for exploring the capital and its surrounding areas.
The hotel offers 138 ensuite bedrooms, ranging in size across single, double, twin and triple occupancy rates. Each room has a simple decor of neutral colours and wooden furniture, and is outfitted in much the way you would expect a 3 star hotel to be with facilities including a television, telephone, hairdryer and tea and coffee maker. The rooms are more spacious than many in central London and have a bright and airy feel.
The public areas within the Palms Hotel reflect its name, with pine flooring, lots of plants and white walls creating a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. The hotel is known as a conference centre as well as a place to find accommodation, and as such has its own meeting room that guests can book to use. For when you're feeling peckish the Palms Restaurant serves classic British cuisine at affordable prices, and the neighbouring Palms Bar is a good place to sit down with a drink at the end of a busy day.
Nearest station is Upminster (District).
