Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great staff
As always, staff very friendly and cheerful. Breakfast is borning for non-full English eaters. Could have better variety of fruit / mixed berries.
Bed was made up with single sheet on double bed whihc was irritating and meant matress was exposed and sheet wrinkly. Not the end of the world so reported only on check out to which i received an apology from the very professional, helpful and customer focussed male receptionist.
That said, still had fantastic night's sleep!

We have stayed a number of times at this same address but this stay was spoiled by the cold temperature of the bedroom as well as the noise of machinery switching on and off all night. We have been put off booking our next stay in Birmingham as we have made a habit of doing previously

I don't always get on with the beds or pillows at hotels. Not the case at Oldbury Holiday Inn Express. Always get a good night of sleep. Love the pillows.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MooSah Another good experience of the IHG brand!
Hotel upholds to the IHG brand name and it was as I expected.
Great service for the 'Express' brand.
Room is the standard IHG - clean, decent sized bedrooms, clean toilets, and a good shower. I requested extra pillows/duvets etc and this was brought up with a minute or so, which was brilliant.
Breakfast was good with lots of top-ups and despite it being the bank holiday weekend (thus very busy) there was still plent of food left even though I went to breakfast very late.
Overall - great stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jill & co Very good value
We arrived for a 3 night stay and the receptionist greeted us promptly & was very polite & friendly. After a quick registration we were given our key. Tea & coffee was available in our room & we were advised to help ourselves to more, if required, from reception. The room was spotlessly clean & adequate for the 4 of us (2 adults & 2 children). The children were on a double sofa bed. The room was a little dated & the beds need updating, as even the children complained that the bed was not very comfortable, but as it was only for 3 nights, they were adequate.
The next morning we were pleasantly surprised at the range on offer for the free breakfast, everything was piping hot, or well chilled depending on your selection. I can heartily recommend the freshly baked croissants, most of the time still warm from the oven. Staff were constantly filling up the breakfast items & clearing the tables. One young lady, Amy, was very pleasant & friendly, checking we had all we needed.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for a short stay to visit local attractions, the cost was very reasonable and with the free breakfast it was even more economical. The only reason I took off a star was for the beds, if they were upgraded I would have no hesitation in giving this hotel 5 stars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kwik Fabulous staff!
The staff were extremely helpful. We were unfamiliar with the area and did not have a vehicle. They were able to direct us to public transit and explain what to expect. They told us about the 4 pounds/day bus ticket, which we would never have known about otherwise. In the restaurant, the server saw that I was chilly and offered to turn down the air conditioner. The food for breakfast and dinner was very appealing. The room was very nice and the bathroom and bedding were above average. We really enjoyed our stay at this Hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Edwod Definitely stay again. Great staff and nice rooms. Price was good too.
We needed a hotel to stay in as we were invited to a friends 40th surprise birthday. We've stayed in other hotels local to this one, but they have never really made us feel comfortable, so we thought we'd give this one a try. It was by far the best of all the local hotels we've stayed in. Staff were nice. Room was more than adequate. It was a pleasant stay and would stay here again rather than try another hotel. Highly recommended.

Had a great stay. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Check in was quick and easy. The air conditioning was not working in our room so after contacting reception, we were promptly moved to another guest room and offered a free drink from the bar. Breakfast was great as usual, excellent selection and food area was kept well stocked and tidy. Very good customer service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Addictedtomaltesers Can't recommend enough, such great staff
I have to admit I was expecting a fairly basic 'no frills' service due to the price and type of hotel. I was so pleasantly surprised by how friendly and helpful the staff were on all 3 of the nights that I stayed there. I was travelling solo with my 4 children (all under 6) and for the first time including a hotel stay and was a bit nervous about how I would manage it. However every single member of staff I met was so friendly and offered me assistance with my luggage, delivery of food and drink to the room to save me having to leave the boys unattended and always arrived with a high chair at breakfast before I'd finished sitting everyone down. The room was very clean and perfectly adequate for the 3 nights we stayed. There was a nice selection at breakfast and the self service area was kept immaculate and well stocked. Can't thank the staff enough and thoroughly recommend the hotel to families. The motorway is minutes away but no noise can be heard.

The staff were very friendly. There was all the things you can require either at the hotel or walking distance for food. Great location just off the m5 for a stop over hotel or going into Birmingham. Value for money was great. Would definitely stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnBoy33 Comfortable Hotel, good location. Great service,
I have stayed at this Hotel many times along with many of my colleagues, We always get a genuine warm welcome,
The staff are quick professional and helpful. The restaurant offers a good selection of reasonable priced food, I would recommend the steaks and the slow cooked shoulder of lamb. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. All in all a Great Hotel with Great Staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Volvoman6 Oldbury Holiday Inn Express Stay
On a flying visit to visit a Sick Relative, I found this convenient for the purpose, and would only recommend it as a brief stop-over point. Not viable as a long term stay for a holiday.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Caz26 Weekendf in Dudley
We made this reservation as we were attending a 1940's weekend at Dudley's Living Museum.
The main issue with this hotel is that there is nothing nearby. There is a pub next door which does "boil in a bag" meals, with sticky tables.
This hotel does NOT serve evening meals Friday/Saturday and Sunday nights.
A little further along the main road (not within walking distance if walking is a problem) there is an excellent Indian food restaurant The Red Mango, to be highly recommended.
Outside the front of the hotel, there is a fantastically busy dual carriageway, and a huge roundabout. To cross this road you take you life in your hands. The road is busy all day and night. However the rooms are well insulated against the noise if you don't open the windows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sambeet Excellent hotel at excellent location
Liked the location of the hotel, all shopiing malls and tourist places are in reachable distance. Liked the stay but ofcourse there is always a room for improvement. Breakfast could have been much better with few more items otherwise this is an excellent hotel.

We were doing a charity cycle ride and had to get up and leave extra early (5.45am). The staff laid on breakfast especially for us which was a splendid level of hospitality on their part. Very polite and friendly.
Room was clean and tidy too.
Overall, a lovely stay. We'd come back again.

Especially if you're traveling the length of England, this HIE is in an excellent location. It has the usual very high standards of comfort, a good breakfast, and prices are particularly competitive. We have used it more than once and will certainly use it again
