Have always stayed in Holiday Inns proper as I do enjoy my breakfast. However stayed in this Express due to its location next ( almost ) to the Monks Cross Park and Ride into York.
So how did it compare? Very well indeed.
We were warmly welcomed and effeciently booked in. Had ask for a quiet room and that is what we got - just seconds from the reception area. All the staff we came across were very friendly and made us feel special.
The room was fine but why, oh why do Holiday Inns still just have double beds when just about all the other chains ( including budget ) have king size. The room lighting is strange. Can't have the desk lamp on without the main ceiling light being on . Pain if your partner is sleeping but you want to work at the desk. Other than those slight quibbles the room was fine and spotlessly clean.
The breakfast is much better than it used to be as they now have a small hot option as well as the usual continental. We had sausges, scrambled eggs and baked beans on both mornings. I believe sometimes the sausages are replaced by bacon. The breakfast area was kept spotlessly clean and all the fod constantly topped up by more friendly staff.
All in all it was a place I would highly recommend if your visiting York. Just a bed size short of being perfect!
