Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AllynC Perfect short term stay near Airport
Stayed here based upon previously posted reviews and our experience matched our expectations. I did not hear the Airport at all (stayed in room 38). I did hear someone in the hallway about 530am but that was due to that person's lack of consideration about others more than structural issues. I did not hear anything from the adjoining room or from above. The opportunity to have dinner here as well as a bar is definitely a plus. breakfast offerings were abundant. The Shuttle arrived on time. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

I would rate this hotel a lot higher if the breakfast was better. Any hotel in England or Scotland should have bacon as part of a traditional 'English Breakfast'. I am an American and do not particularly care for British breakfast sausage including those served at this Holiday Inn Express. UK bacon however is superior to that served in the US. You should provide it.
Additionally I would note that the croissants are not up to typical European standards and even the standards of other UK Holiday Inn Express hotels. I thought they were particularly poor quality.
