Having stayed in Holiday Inn Express in the past in the UK and other countries my expectations were very low. So I was quite surprised at this one out in Oxford. The location is OK if you have a car but there is not much nearby worth doing.
The room was a good size for three people. The fold-out sofa bed was large and comfortable but the double bed was far too small for 2 adults.
The room was quiet thanks to the location. The choice of food at breakfast was very impressive for this standard of hotel. The car park was a bit small and it was hard to find a space on Saturday night which was busier.
Staff were not very helpful and the 5GBP charge for 1hr of internet is extremely expensive.
