First time stay here. Don't usually stay at Holiday Inn Express, usually stay at Holiday Inn.

Good location, easy to find. Plenty of parking available.

Check-in was smooth and no issue. Finding rooms was ok, although signage not the best for locating lift or room.

Room was clean, bed was smaller than I have experienced in other Holiday Inns.
Bathroom was adequate although find it odd that the toilet is tucked away behind the bathroom door.

Cleanliness of tea making facilities could be better. Tea spoon still had stains on it from previous occupant. I also get that as was staying for more than one night, I would still expect some cleaning to take place. Cup was as I had left it in the morning.

Bar area is adequate, although drink selection is very limited.

There is a bar menu of sorts.

Breakfast is fine, no issues. Enough selection of hot and cold food.

This is a return visit as I find the HI-express package to be unbeatable on value. As the breakfast and free parking are included there are no nasty surprises at checkout. Convenient location and plenty of free parking, and friendly staff throughout. My room very clean and nicely planned with enough storage for our two-person three-night stay (I did pack a couple of extra clothes hangers to add to the six supplied). Good WiFi, tea and coffee facilities, nice shower etc in fact everything you need except a safe.
The included breakfast is very good with a hot selection (egg/bacon/beans/sausage) several cereals, fresh fruit, toast and unlimited beverages.

Room tip: Try to get a room facing the car park, there is some traffic noise if facing the main road.

We stayed here on our way to Cornwall and will do the same next year. It's really handy for the M5 with lots of parking. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Free WiFi was very welcome! Breakfast was good, although some things ran out quickly.

Hotel is in a good location close to the M5. We spent two nights at this hotel over a weekend in August. This hotel feels in need of some investment.  The bed felt like a standard double (not the King size you'd expect) and the mattress was rock hard. There's no air conditioning, so the room was really warm (despite average weather temperatures). I'd dread to think how hot it would get during hot weather. The hotel was noisy (lots of banging doors) probably due to no slow-close mechanisms being fitted to the internal doors. Bathroom could do with a deep clean. Breakfast was OK with lots of choice serving hot & cold food. Staff were pleasant but not overly attentive.
