We stayed at the HI express for one night en route down to Cornwall for a family holiday. We got a family room with a huge fold out sofa bed for our son which was wonderful as it was a great bed for him. We had a double bed for us and the room was spacious enough. The bathroom was small with only a shower but we knew that when we booked and it had air conditioning which over other more budget hotels, this was a plus for us (especially as in England it was unusually hot!).
The room was good, clean and what we needed/expected. The breakfast was great - a huge spread of hot food, cereals, toast, fruit etc. We loved it. The dining area wasn't huge though so we went downstairs at about 830 am and we were fine but breakfast ran until 930 and people coming down at 9 am had to queue as there wasn't enough space/tables.
The staff was lovely, one of the receptionists heard me calling my son by his name and said hello to him personally which was lovely and such a nice touch.
We would return if we were in the area - the staff are lovely and the place perfect.More
