Reviewed 10 February 2012

Stayed for one night to break journey, hotel looked like it had been recently refurbished,very clean, very friendly staff worth thinking about to break a long journey just off the motorway so very handy. Good value for the price, have stayed a few times over the years and would stay again.

we had a 2 night stay at this hotel that has just what you need at an extremely good price!!!! room was fine, slept well, sofa bed adequate, breakfast just what we needed, staff could not have been more helpful and friendly and looked after us very well - would definately stay again and would recommend to others! cant find any fault with this hotel --- toby carvery next door was not good - service poor, would not have eaten from the carvery and we were asked to leave by 10pm because my 9 year old daughter was with us - i have never been asked that in any restaurant before and i am not sure it is legal!!! we ate in the hotel on our 2nd night and the food was lovely, plenty of it and a good price

Room Tip: book early for good deals

Well myself my 8 month pregnant wife and one year old son just stayed here late January 2012.
Check in is usually a breeze at the express holiday inn, however we arrived at 250pm only ten mins before the 3pm check inn however we were still waiting till 330 to get checked in which was a bit of a pain as the room was still being cleaned.

We were allocated room 18 which was a smoking room. Certainly didnt ask for a smoking room but thought that will be fine since Silly me thought the rules in the UK now said you cant smoke in hotels etc etc. Sadly I was wrong in this !!! but wrongly told by the receptionist that noone was allowed smoking in the rooms but then the next morning was told by another receptionists the rooms could still be used for smoking in.

The hotel itself is a bit tired for a holiday inn express however its a good hotel if you want to stay close to the M&D's theme park. The breakfast was also quite nice with it being the usual self service.
Sadly the biggest issue was the fact they had put us in a smoking room which was had a very overwhelming smell to it. We asked reception for a swap but nothing was available.
I just dont get why they checked myself my pregnant wife and toddler into a smoking room !!
The smell made my wife so unwell that she ended up going to the car at 4am just to get out for an hour !! so very unimpressed.

Overall if we had been put in a non smoking room the night would of been very different but sadly was ruined by this.

Stayed at this hotel twice in a week as an overnight stop on the way to and back from the north of Scotland. Hotel and facilities as you should expect from a HIEX and the staff encountered were genuine and friendly. Location is good for motorway access and a range of eating options are very close at hand.

Booked as a present for me from relatives I was visiting. Easy to find. Pleasant welcome and fast efficient check in. Hotel was pleasant and clean. Room and bed comfortable and clean. Slight noise from motorway but not excessive. Breakfast plenty, serve yourself, it was well presented and spotlessly clean. Would return

Room Tip: Ask for a room nearer the park rather than the motorway

I was not expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised when I saw the room. Decent sized room which was spotlessly clean and very well presented. The bed was very comfortable with a choice of soft or firm pillows. The showeroom (no bath) was clean and modern with a large shower cabinet.
The "Free" buffet breakfast was excellent. Plenty of choice and plenty of food. The staff were great. They could not have been more helpful.
Overall an excellent experience and I will definitely use holiday inn express again. Far superior to the usual travelodge's I have used in the past.
