We are elite status Priority Club. When travelling, we make use of Holiday Inn Express wherever possible as they offer what we need/ want for overnight stays.
This Hotel was user-friendly, staff were helpful, the room was clean, fresh, had everything including tea/coffee making facilities and sparkling-clean shower bath/ toilet etc.
Best of all, it had an excellent cooked Breakfast and for an ex-pat citizens THAT WAS A BONUS !
We also ate in the evening off a very restricted menu. The Food was hot and tasty. A Free newspaper was available at Breakfast.
Overall, this establishment left us with a very good impression.
In point of fact, it is located on the SOUTH (London side) off a dual carriageway so when travelling North to Colchester / Ipswich, you have to come off the carriageway and go through winding lanes for about a mile (crossing the dual carriageway in the process) before finding it tucked away on your left behind another Shell petrol station. A bit confusing, but worth the effort to find it.
We used it to avoid London Olympic Opening night (July 27).
