Had a one-night pre-cruise stay here and to be honest, I was dreading it! Thankfully, the M25 did what the M25 does best - be a car park and that delayed our arrival by several hours so by the time we checked in, all the noisy little kiddies and their equally noisy parents all bound for Peppa Pig World were fast asleep!
Despite being dumped with heavy luggage into a third floor room (Couldn't reception see that we had heavy luggage?, Obviously not), we managed a decent night's sleep followed by a good shower with minimal facilities.
Thankfully our cruise line required us to check in on board by 12.30 and with the foul weather in the area that meant getting up early, having a fairly quiet(ish) early breakfast - before the onslaught of little 'darlings', but they got up early too and with the combined efforts of these 'darling's', their equally thick and noisy parents, and the rest of the hotel's guests it didn't take long for the tiny breakfast area turn turn into a ghetto!
Check out was a pleasant experience for us!!
A tip: Unlike the larger Holiday Inn Express Hotels further north which are owned by the Intercontinental Hotels Group, this hotel is a Holiday Inn Express franchise and owned by 'More Than Hotels' - That speaks volumes!!!!
Would I stay here again? You bet I won't!
