“Amazing Prices”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night on our way down to Torquay. It is ideally situated just off the M5. We were given a friendly welcome, and check in was completed smoothly and efficiently.
This was our first stay at a Holiday Inn, having previously used either Travelodge or Premier inn. We were very impressed. Room was exceptionally clean and bed very comfortable. Although the restaurant was closed, a Harvester Pub was just across the car park, and served reasonably priced meals. There is also an Indian restaurant and McDonalds close by. Breakfast was included in the price, and unlimited hot and cold items available. Plenty of free car parking is available. We will certain use HIX again.

Lovely smart designed rooms, impeccably clean, very comfortable. Adam at reception does all he can to make your visit the best ever. In fact all the staff are lovely. I've stayed at many Premier Inn and Travel Lodges over the years but I'll always book with Holiday Inn from now on. This Droitwich one reminded me of the Amertania Hotel In New York City in USA. That's a designer hotel which is Phillip Starke inspired and the Holiday Inn follows the same smart design. Excellent breakfast and free WIFI. in fact, I'm looking to book again! Just off the Motorway and very easy to find but you barely hear the traffic due to good double/ triple glazing. Holiday is right next to McDonalds (if that's what you like) or Harvester, where we ate and this was really nice. Indian restaurant across the car park but ask Adam first for his Indian Restaurant recommendations NAND he may just give you a treat! :0) great place to stay x

Room Tip: Don't think it matters as all rooms suit. We were close to the road but weren't disturbed at...

The HIX Droitwich is in a good location for the motorway, only moments from J5, and also has a McDonalds and an excellent Indian restaurant opposite.

However there were a number of annoying niggles which left me disappointed. Check in firstly was good and they said that IHG Rewards Club members get bonus points added to their account, which I thought was good. However that did not materialise which was a shame.

The room is the old HIX-style and felt a bit tired; although clean, maintenance was not as good - the bathroom door handle was broken. I was surprised at how quiet the room (facing McDonalds) was given the proximity to the M5.

Breakfast was not to the standard of a usual HIX - they were running out of croissants and cutlery even when it did not seem overly busy. The reception staff had to double up doing the breakfast service which I think was the problem. Annoyingly they did not have any trays like all other HIX's do, which would have made it easier to carry things to your table in one trip.

Overall it's well located for the M5 but the tired feel to the rooms and other niggles would discourage me from returning.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking McDonalds avoid the motorway traffic noise.

The Express at Droitwich is not the best hotel you will ever stay in but it is clean functional and very close to the motorway (m5) literally less than 100 yards away, but surprisingly quiet no road noise to disturb your sleep, it does have one unique benefit though as it is next door to the excellent Mendi vegetarian Indian restaurant.

So an excellent meal a night cap and a good nights sleep to boot!

I've had a run of HIX recently which started off badly in Slough but has improved each time. I arrived at 20:30 after a three hour drive from Warrington so a quick and efficient check-in was appreciated. The room was standard, although I was a bit concerned about potential noise as I was on the first floor overlooking the MacDonalds drive-through. As it happened, I didn't hear any external noise all night, which was excellent.

After a beer or two I debated whether to eat in the hotel or go to the Harvester and the hotel won, as my last Harvester visit was pretty depressing. The Pork Belly Bites were a bit burnt but OK but the burger was very good - fresh, nice portion of well melted cheese and a generous portion of nice chips. Expectations exceeded and if you don't fancy the hotel or the Harvester you can always go to the above mentioned MacD.

Checkout was quick and efficient - the only one downside was a shower curtain that fell about two inches short of the floor, so a lot of escaped water after showering. That's a minor quibble in what was an excellent value stay.

No Brainer , very clean good layout and for an express great value. M5 can be loud so try for rooms overlooking the car.
Staff very good and very attentive big smile for a welcome
Indian restaurant on site with a harvester as well so plenty of choice for dinner

Room Tip: Try for a room over the car park, M5 can be loud
