Back to this hotel once more before departing on a cruise the following day.
Finding it was even easier than my previous stay here 2 years ago - there's a new roundabout with appropriate signs.
The whole site is very secure with cctv throughout the car park.
Check-in was smooth and friendly and the ground floor room was typical standard HIE, so it was adequate for one night, and we slept well. Took a look at the cooked breakfast and decided to stick to continental - it appears that from my review of Edinburgh HIE and this one that the hot breakfeast will continue to be the 'Achilles Heel' of Holiday Inn Express and either needs improving or withdrawal at corporate level.
Check-out was high-speed - the only word I can describe it!!
£69 for one night in a hotel in the middle of a field does seem a bit pricey, especially as this hotel is mainly used by business users and those going to or from cruise ships, but it suited us well.
