Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 430 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel Stay 28/07/14 The hotel was good in most respects but the coffee served at breakfast tasted disgusting. We tried altering the strength of the coffee but to no avail. August 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel. Looks like new Having stayed at a number of IHG places in the past this one was very fresh and looks like quite a new build, In a bit of a strange location though!! August 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice.. ish Modern, convenient hotel, good location near M6 BUT Very poor lighting in the room and bathroom, needs a proper light ! August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HI Preston All good, stayed there a few times all good ! Convenient for Motorway August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Affordable quality On entrance, over all looked clean and professional The member of staff on duty when we arrived was friendly and helpful. The room looked very clean and fresh. The bathroom was very up to date and trendy The breakfast had a good variety Only criticism I have was No Soya Milk. They offered gluten free bread which was excellent plus gluten free corn flakes, which was brilliant but for those who have a lactose intolerance, there was no alternative. Other than that, PERFECT August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value for money On our arrival we found the hotel to be a modern, clean and tidy. The stay was excellent value for money including a good choice for breakfast options. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good clean fresh hotel Clean room and public area. Quiet at night. Easy parking and access to M6. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Overall very satisfying stay. Addition of some locally brewed bottles of beer in the bar would be a nice touch. August 11, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely front desk staff, terrible plumbing Our room had lights that didn't work in both the main bedroom and bathroom - I am not convinced that the extractor worked either. The bathroom smelt of blocked drains. We were offered a different room as the lady from the front desk thought it was bad. We declined as it was relatively late and the children were needing to settle down. The lady sprayed the bathroom and we shut the door on it. Sadly, the smell got worse and worse through the night - too late to move but it was terrible in the bedroom by the morning despite the door being shut. The lady on the front desk tried to get us a part refund - at her own instigation - but her manager would not allow it as we had pre-paid - there is a lesson there!! The breakfast was adequate, but no croissants as enticingly advertised above the hot food cabinet - just rather small rectangular 'things', Overall, the stay was super with regard to the lady on the front desk, good with regard to the room's comfort despite the lack of reading lights and bathroom lights and terrible with regard to the drains. I am certain we were unlucky, but I hope that no-one else will be August 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good example of a Holiday Inn All the right standards in the right places. Clean and friendly. August 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by modern clean hotel A very bright modern hotel just off the M6 with very nice accommodation. love the bathroom and excellent shower. good choice of Buffet breakfast something for everyone August 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Modern, comfortable, good budget range hotel Good location for my business needs. Not able to sample breakfast due leaving early. Modern, clean and comfortable rooms, excellent double sized showers in modern bathrooms August 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Would stay here again The hotel is easily accessed from the motorway but We did not suffer the usual motorway noise through the night. We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, the staff were very welcoming and helpful and the lounge areas very comfortable.The room was to a very good standard and the air conditioning was very welcome along with wet room as this was an accessable room. Would definitely stay here again. The only area for improvement would be the provision of an additional chair in the room. August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 A great hotel at reasonable prices Air conditioned throughout which was great as it was very hot at the time. Staff are very friendly and could not do enough to make my stay more enjoyable. Bar prices very good, but bottle of wine expensive to buy. Breakfast selection was the same every day which I thought was poor. Coffee machine kept breaking down. Hot food i.e sausages needs changing to say bacon, et all. Scrambled egg was obviously microwaved after making from water and powdered egg, and was very bland. Cleaners were polite, although some did not speak English, although they did a good job in the rooms, and could not fault their work. Bed was comfy, pillows both soft and firm were good, and I did not suffer any back problems at all ( I have a slipped disk). My only real criticism was creaky fire doors. You need to keep the hinges well lubricated August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely, Quiet Hotel with Great Service This is a lovely quiet hotel despite it's close proximity to M6 motorway. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of free parking. Although no shops nearby, hotel has small selection of drinks and snacks for sale. Breakfast was included in price and there was a good selection of hot and cold food. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone - better than major rivals! August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a hotel should be like Absolutely fantastic stay. Mustn't mention competitors so I'll simply say the hotel in Whitby we went on to stay at by comparison was dire. The weather was better than the hotel. I will search out the nearest Holiday Inn next time. Value for money was excellent. I only hope that by giving this kind of praise the prices are not hiked up. Highly recommended August 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great value, lovely staff Super clean room and public areas. Very convenient position by motorways, perfect for us as we were visiting friends in several local towns. August 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellence doesn't usually come this cheap! I have had the pleasure of staying at the Preston South hotel many times over the last 2 years and I will certainly continue to do so. The hotel is clean, fresh and bright. The staff are welcoming and friendly - not to mention exceptionally helpful. The food (in the evening) is just about right for the cost. Breakfast is a little disappointing but I accept that this is not a choice made by the hotel - it's the standard across the Holiday Inn Express chain, so I may take it up with Intercontinental Hotels Group. Overall, I have never found a fault with this hotel and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to other travellers, friends and family. August 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service would recommend holiday inn and would stay again if needed. staff very friendy and helpful when I enquired about directions they printed a route planner for us to carry on our journey. only slight downside was breakfast could have had more choice but was adequate for what we wanted x August 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good location great comfortable hotel in an excellent location for the M6 motorway August 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by overall Highly recommended great value for money, would recommend to a friend July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HIE Dogs There are an increasing number of dogs checking in at the HIE Preston south. Obviously the word is out that HIE accept dogs. Dog water bowls are provided at the entrance saving them having to climb onto the bar for a drink and paying for expensive bottled water. Although I do like dogs the increasing numbers is getting out of hand especially when dog events are hosted locally. On these occasions the bar area feels more like a dog kennel with the owners allowing them to climb onto the furniture. Their owners may argue it's only a small shih tzu, when a real man dog has to lie on the floor and us poor humans without dogs have to stand at the bar. Thank God the water bowls are outside leaving the bar area free to the standing guests. I wonder, do the dogs book twin rooms, one bed for themselves and one for the owner? July 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and modern, fresh hotel I checked in late and was still greeted by a friendly, welcoming face which was a nice surprise. The hotel, although only an Express, is fresh and modern and is a little different from the normal 'corporate' style ... highly recommended. July 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Preston South Holiday Inn Express, great stopover hotel. Having stopped for the one night, enroute to Scotland, we was rest assured and happy that our return booking / visit at the Preston South Holiday Inn Express wasn't going to be any different. We were, upon requesting and without hassle, guaranteed same rooms for the return visit; and of course same service, etc. What's also good with regards Preston South Holiday Inn Express Hotel, is it's location and very good necessary amenties closeby; i.e: stores and garage with reasonable fuel price. All in all Holiday Inn Express have got it right with regards Motel / Stopover Hotel services, and for the prices, well it's a case of 'you pays your money and take your choice'; and there's plenty around. The I.H.G. Rewards Membership is a good scheme, and yes it's the same old thing as with the old retail scenario, but if it's a helpful way to cut costs what the heck, ' have it and use it '. And the Staff, they were first rate all round. July 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel An excellent HIE. Rooms large and comfortable. Hotel well placed off M6. July 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Great service and very good and hospitable staff, clean room and comfortable all around. My only minus was the fact that the smell from the pipes in the bathroom was terrible, you have to have your door shut otherwise the smell was everywhere and not nice to take a shower. July 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Modern and comfortable Very new holiday inn. Neat, tidy and clean. Lovely staff. July 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very comfortable stay My husband and I stayed whilst visiting Bolton to support our son who was taking part in an Ironman UK triathlon. We were very impressed with the Holiday Inn - never having stayed in one before - and had a very comfortable stay. The staff could not have been more helpful. July 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Stay One of the best Holiday Inn Express hotels I've ever stayed in. July 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bright Clean and Welcoming This Holidy Inn Express is ideally placed just off junction 29 of the M6 Motorway and ideal for a weekend break we were taking to recharge our batteries after a hard working week .Happy and friendly staff throughout the hotel,spotlessly clean,and a light and airy bedroom we will definately stay here again July 23, 2014
