Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The approach to the hotel is characterised by litter and over grown shrubs. The room we were in was very dated. The windows offered very little insulation from noise or the weather. The bathroom was very grubby with broken tiles, dirty grout and a dirty shower curtain. However the room did have a bed and curtains so met our needs to sleep. Breakfast is similarly basic but okay if just want a coffee.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave a review as we use these to make sure that we are providing the best service possible. I am sorry to hear that the hotel fell below the standards that you expected and I hope that it won't put you off returning to the hotel. I will follow up the issues with the room with the maintenance and housekeeping team, we have has workers in to look at the windows so this has now been fixed. In relation to the approach we have been in constant touch with the local council regarding the grass area outside the hotel as this area doesn't belong to the hotel

The whole hotel is starting to look a bit shabby and threadbare - refurbishment needed. Grubby floors, loose tiles and missing grout in the bathrooms, laminated finish starting to peel off the cheap wooden panels on the walls in the bedrooms, bit of an odd smell in the lift some days. Walls and doors are paper-thin - don't expect an undisturbed night, especially at a weekend if you're in a room by the lift. The rooms with connecting doors have virtually no soundproofing - the conversation the two Irish guys were having in the room next to mine at 1am was clearly audible. Breakfast - seriously bad. Scrambled egg like rubber, greasy undercooked bacon, terrible sausages, dry and stale baked goods, poor-quality coffee, and fruit which has been sitting in the too-warm chiller for so long that the pineapple is fizzy when you put it in your mouth. Vending machines are cash-only, so no chance of a snack if you want to pay by card. Some of the staff were very pleasant and chatty. Others not so much.

Another great wee overnight at Holiday Inn Express Greenock, the staff as always were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The rooms are nice and quiet (so a good nights sleep!) but it’s also near to the Town. Totally recommend this hotel. 👍🏻

We stayed here because it was reasonably priced so we were closer to a wedding we were at. Didn’t expect anything amazing given the price but at the very least cleanliness is expected from any hotel. The mattress had no mattress protector and was all stained. The toilet could have also done with a good scrub. Given current stricter regulations due to Covid the was really disappointing and glad the room was only used to put our head down for the night.

Had a lovely stay in this hotel on our way to the highlands. The room was clean and comfortable, the check in was quick and simple and staff were very welcoming. We had a family room for 2 adults, 2 teenagers and our 2 dogs. The room had everything we needed, lots of towels, extra pillows etc and was nice and roomy. Breakfast was good too. Would definitely stay here again!!

The hotel was perfectly situated for us visiting family in the area and the customer service from the desk was great. However, as non-smokers there was a smell of smoke consistently throughout the building. This is not helped by the smoking at the front door which constantly has a stream of guests. Non smoking hotel but somebody in the room next door was definitely smoking - once reported it stopped to be fair - well done to the staff for sorting it out. Breakfast was including and great for adults. However, an option of cereal for children and/or adults would have been nice.

Hello Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and thank you for the positive feedback I will be sure to pass this onto the team Also in relation to the issue with someone smoking in a room this is something that we take extremely serious and anytime that it is reported we action straight away and we hope that this didn't inconvenience you. With breakfast we are still working with reduced menus due to the restrictions that are in place by the Scottish government and also our head office we are hoping that this will soon go back to normal once the pandemic is fully brought under control

Stayed at Holiday Inn for 1 night. Really pleasant stay at spotlessly clean hotel. Met George at reception and he is such a welcoming and helpful member of staff; as well as extremely hard working!!! Felt safe throughout hotel where Covid protocols in place and adhered to. Pleasant bar area with large tv in lounge area. Public toilets spotless. Room was good size, decent sized tv, room pleasant enough and spotlessly clean. Had great nights sleep. Breakfast included which was nice. Would recommend. Close to town centre and waterfront. Hotel provides meals but visited nearby Indian for something different; Delhi Deluxe where food was outstanding and best Indian food I’ve ever had!! Thank you for pleasant stay.

The room key mechanism failed when we had already unloaded some of our luggage, we were waiting In the hot corridor during attempts to fix it. It was eventually opened with a master key and we were moved to an alternative room. Room 203 has very noisy plumbing. Breakfast was very good and safe and had Gluten Free cooked items available as promised when we checked-in. Staff did well to control a group of workers who didn't seem to be aware of covid rules. It's an easy run to The Erskine bridge for a morning crossing without joining Glasgow traffic.

Hello Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and thank you for the positive feedback I will be sure to pass this onto the team, and I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your gluten free breakfast. Unfortunately the key system doesn't give any warning when the batteries are going done or when they have went done and this leads to an inconvenience for the guests, which we can only apologize for. With the issue with the plumbing this is something we will need to look into and thank you for brining it to our attention. We hope to see you again soon

This Holiday Inn Express hotel is ideally located off the main A78 dual carriageway through Greenock, a few minutes’ drive from the local town centres and waterfront eating places. It adjoins the EE and Royal Bank of Scotland office complexes but is pleasantly set-back in a well-screened and landscaped plot. My room was a good size, nicely decorated and well-equipped including a large sofa, good wifi, hospitality tray, etc. The bathroom was large with a big double-size shower section and plenty of space for toiletries. Evening meals were available in the attractive lounge. Breakfast was good with a full cooked breakfast including toast and orange juice, as well as a continental option. Breakfast could be had in the lounge or in a takeaway bag. In the lounge, it was served with proper crockery, metal cutlery and glass/mug – a welcome step-up from the cheaper plastic/polystyrene containers that seem to be in use in some competing hotel chains at present. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were free newspapers available and I received a free drink and snack as part of their loyalty scheme. My room rate was very good value. Overall, this is an excellent branch of the Holiday Inn Express chain and recommended if you’re visiting the area for leisure or work.
