We stayed in this hotel with our two children (5 and 2 years old) for one night whilst visiting Peppa Pig World (see spearate review). We have stayed in a few Holiday Inn Express's before, and this is easily the worst. That's not to say it is bad, but having spent the previous two nights in a Premier Inn (Frome - see separate review), the difference between the two is obvious. The room was quite cramped with the sofa bed opened up and a travel cot for the children. It also felt quite 'tired', underlined by the fact that I found the window did not close securely (once the children were asleep, so could not move rooms - not that it was offered anyway) and this led to a draught in the room. Breakfast was totally uninspiring, with bland sausages and soggy scrambled eggs. I'd prefer they charged similar to Premier Inn for breakfast (£8) and put on good quality food. Location was good for Peppa Pig World, and we found a great pub for dinner (Four Horseshoes - see separate review). If staying in the area again, we would check out the two Premier Inns that are nearby before booking this hotel again.
