This hotel is clean and tidy and the staff are very friendly and helpful. However, if you want a good night's sleep it is best too avoid. The room had many strange noises during the night to the extent it sounded haunted. The beds are very soft and uncomfortable, especially the pull out sofa bed. It was more like a...

Only stayed for a night but would quite easily stay again. The staff were helpful and friendly as you would expect although at times we had to wait a while at the bar to be served as the staff were busy with check in's/out's. The whole place was clean enough and quite well maintained. The breakfast was included and had...

We stayed three nights visiting familly in the area. We had a very comfortable stay. We had a meal in the hotel which wasn,t to my liking but the staff were excellent, taking the meal off the bill and offering a free drink. No fuss at all. Brilliant customer service. Nothing was too much trouble. Staff a credit to the...

We stayed here to make a weekend of it whilst shopping at Freeport. We just wanted a place to stay overnight and we were not disappointed. We arrived at about 5.30 and were greeted most enthusiastically. Our room for three of us was huge! It was one of the biggest we have ever stayed in. It was clean, bright and...

Nice staff. Nice rooms, clean and digital tv. Nice shower. Free parking which is always a plus. Free wifi in all areas. Cooked breakfast was good quality and good variety. Would definitely stay here again.

I had to change my accommodation plans, and the Holiday Inn Express was a last minute choice. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the room was fine. Breakfast is a buffet style with various choices. Not the best in the world, but did the job. No problems with parking, and the price I paid was fine. No complaints.

Really nice staff and a more than adequate room. no complaints for a budget hotel. Wouldn't say it was anything special as you get what you pay for but all in all a well rounded experience in a god awful location, there's literally nothing to do in the area.

booked online and got a huge room for £55, inc breakfast. the room was great, bed comfy and well lit too which annoys me in other hotels which are invariably poorly lit. large shower, good TV, nothing to fault,. If I was being super picky there wasn't any bacon on the breakfast, but there was scrambled eggs, sausage beans and...

The HI Express Braintree is typical of the brand, reasonable rooms, decent price. There is plenty of free parking and good free wifi. The only downside was I was put on the ground floor and the reception bar area was noisy and disturbed me up until midnight which was excessive for a mid week night. My stated preference was a...
