Good room Clean and comfortable. Breakfast 7.45am food buffet very depleated along with lack of plates and bowls. Hot food very slow served on cold plates as plate warmer had not been turned on. Person cooking food appeared to be someone drafted in from another department half wearing a chefs jacket trying to cook food. Not very efficiently. Had to... More

Hotel was OK - Staff are nice. Bathroom and shower had previous occupants pubic hair. The scrambled eggs are processed with some sort of bulking agent as it tastes of weak scrambled eggs. Breakfast not great. They were funny with warming up milk for a baby. 2 of the staff were more than happy to do so in a microwave.... More

Just a average holiday inn express rooms were ok clean and tidy, location was not bad apart from the cost of the car parking, they offer some good deals with local restaurants and a local gym, the down side was the unfriendly reception and the poor breakfast let this hotel down, would only use as a business hotel

The hotel offered free entry during your stay to fitness first that was free hundred yards away. The brewery was also walking distance. The rooms was standard. The breakfast was very limited. It think the prices are very high for a basic hotel.
