Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 332 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent place to stay If you have never stayed in the "express" holiday inn you are missing out. Once you have stayed you will never change. We regularly stay in holiday inn express in preston south and Dunstable and can not fault them. From first arriving to leaving our stays are fault free and relaxed. The rooms are always modern and are of a very high standard of cleanliness. The staff are always so friendly and helpful and have always delivered on our request. The complimentary breakfast is very enjoyable with a good Range of choice. The only low point i disagree with is they welcome dogs to stay. I don't see many four legged friends and they do stay on ground floor rooms but I would prefer not to see any. But it doesn't stop me from revisiting. February 14, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel with one problem This is a great hotel, with brilliant staff, nice rooms, nice showers, but is let down by the appalling heating system. I stay here a lot, but am considering moving because I am always too cold. The staff are always happy to provide additional heating, but why not fix the problem? February 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Pleased with the room & hotel. Just wanted to say that the staff on the reception desk were courteous & helpful when we told them that our room was cold and that we could not adjust the controls; they immediately brought an electric heater to the room which solved the problem. February 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent staff and service I have stayed in many UK Holiday Inn Express hotels and this was the best overall. I highly recommend it. February 12, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Please get firmer mattresses! The extremely soft and uncomfortable mattress ruined what would have otherwise been a pleasant stay here. The staff initially tried to be helpful and allocate us a room away from the lifts as we had requested, but seemed unfamiliar with the hotel layout and gave us a room right beside the elevators instead. However they were able to move us to another room. After all this and given the late hour of our arrival, we were too tired to request a move to a room with a larger (and hopefully firmer) bed. Breakfast was tasty, but I would also suggest that the hotel invest in a better toaster - the only settings seemed to be "Uncooked" or "Burnt to a cinder". Given the quality of our sleep, I severely doubt that we will return here, unfortunately. February 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient location for M6 Perfect location for M6 user stopover. Really friendly staff. Very nice room. February 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very good stay My wife, brother, son and I stayed at the hotel because of a family funeral. The service was such that should we be in the area again we will use this hotel. February 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Stayed here many times. Hotel always spotlessly clean with extremely friendly staff. Only let down by warm air system in rooms not always working. February 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very good overnight stay. Modern and clean with a good spacious room and a comfortable bed. Bathroom modern and clean. Reception efficient, friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again February 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Staff Good clean hotel apart from slight let down by breakfast menu but friendly staff make up for this who are willing to help in any way possible. Bathroom is nice with lovely shower but lighting could have been better and mattress was slightly soft (personal choice) but still slept comfortably and did not tell the hotel about these 2 things - i think the staff would have sorted this out if given the chance! Internet offered but not used. Easy location to find and Would stay here again. February 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good hotel, let down by poor mattress WE enjoyed our stay and found the hotel welcoming and clean. Conveniently situated just off the motorway but not right on it. The breakfast was good. The hotel restaurant was closed on Sunday night with just salad and pizzas available. Bathroom was good with a power shower, no bath. The only problem with it was the reduced lighting. Staff helpful. Room was clean and hotel looked bright and fairly new. Our only issue was the mattress which was past its best. It rolled into the middle and gave me back ache which I do not usually suffer from. However I am sure if we had complained we could have moved to another room. We were told the mattresses are being replaced soon! February 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by What have you done!!! All was well until breakfast, NO BACON, NO HASH BROWNS!!!! I thought maybe a shortage, only to find out IHG have decided to remove them from the menu so as to differentiate HIE from HI. Utter guff. Sadly I like a nice cooked breakfast, so won't be returning to this hotel again and will use another brand if this is how they do things, Its the most rediculous change I've ever heard of, remove pastries if you must remove something. Sorry but not good. February 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hidden Gem on the M6 Polite friendly greeting on arrival, recognised as aPriority Club member and allocated a room away from road noise as requested. The room was spacious, comfortable, very well decorated with a well appointed bathroom with a double size shower cubicle. Decent choice of food from the bar menu, the beef madras could have done with a little more zing and heat for my liking. I will stop here again when travelling in the North West. February 3, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Good value Good clean hotel ,modern décor and nice breakfast. January 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good night sleep and great staff would recommend this to anyone, wanting attentive but not intrusive service from the staff, a good clean and comfortable room at a reasonable price. And so handy for the M6 too, with breakfast included and evening meal available to purchase, what more could one ask? January 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by clean and comfortable staff here are very helpful. the room was large with a comfortable bed and a super large shower. Breakfast was ok not a huge choice but adequate January 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Preston We had a couple of nights stay in the Express. was surprised how spacious it was. Everything was clean, the room and bathroom was spotless. Good simple menus. everything looked new - real coffee machine etc. not much to complain about. will defiantly stay there again. January 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great access Just what you need after a hard day, a clean and quiet room to relax. Great shower and space in the room to spread out. January 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by right place at right price We used this hotel as a central point to attend appointments do shopping and relax. We had our 2 house cats with us and were happy that we were left alone to keep the room clean and tidy our selves. I was disappointed that there was a charge for having house cats in a room as unlike dogs they don't go out for walks,get wet and smell the room. In fact because we are very house proud I expect we left the room cleaner and tidier than some guests traveling with no pets. I wish the next time we stay there we would be looked at as an individual case and be exempt a unnecessary pet charge. However that is company policy but it could and should be revised. I must admit the manager was very helpful and did what she could to keep us happy and insure we become repeat customers so 10 out of 10 for the staff. Cappuccino machine gets switched off at night and you have no choice but buy from the bar. Not a problem if you are just staying 1 night but if like us you are there for 4 nights it would be nice to have it as a free be as I am sure the hotel could afford it and it would make the stay a bit more special and homely. Enough whingeing from me. Overall it was a good stay. January 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by another stay in sunny Preston the hotel is almost a second home due to regular work related visits. staff very friendly and welcoming. rooms clean and you know the standard is consistently good throughout. the only reason for looking to alternative options is the same old menu choices for food (evening) with very little if any changes (one main dish changed on menu in last 10 months)....which is no problem for those who pass through but wearing for regular visitors. January 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Copnvenient This hotel is in a convenient, Well placed area just off the M6. Very nice surroundings with very polite staff. The only gripe we had was that the double bed we slept in, because we could feel the springs through the mattress. I have mentioned it to the staff, and I would hope they will have dealt with it. January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent as always As a business traveller the hotel was clean, staff helpful, food good value. I always stay here if I'm in this area. January 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by poor breakfast The room was ok but suffered from noise from the nearby road and motorway. The breakfast was poor both in quality and choice of ingredients. January 12, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value. We have stayed here a few times recently and have always been delighted with the general package.
