Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Leelee29 Lovely hotel, great location
This is a good hotel, in a good location for city centre stays. I do however feel they take advantage of their city centre location by adding extra to the price. By going further out the city by a few streets, you could probably get the same for at least £10 cheaper a night.
Arrived at the hotel and greeted by friendly reception staff. They had ran out of rooms however since they share with next door hotel they promptly sorted the problem. I was given a lovely clean, warm room with a good shower.
I was woken up very early in the morning, despite the double glazing, my room was above a side alley street which had early movement with businesses therefore every morning was an early rise.
Breakfast was a delight; with many different choices (sausage, egg, beans, muffins, fruit, cereal, teas, coffees, toast etc) staff in the breakfast room were very chatty and friendly.
The downfalls of the hotel are toilet roll is of poor quality, no toilet brush, outside noise and prices of £85+ a night.
However the plus sides: warm, friendly hotel, good access to city centre, and transport, clean rooms, good breakfast.
With a few slight changes this hotel would get a 5 star from me.

Stayed for 3 nights as down with family for Chrstmas shopping, the Holiday Inn Express is ideal for staying as shops on doorstep, also quality restaurants nearby and new cineworld on doorstep.
The hotel is very comfotable and has very friendly staff from receptionist through to cleaners, all helpful and made to feel very welcome, didn't feel like a corporate hotel at all and all staff were excellent with smiles all day. Breakfast is very good with fair range on offer and just what you need to set you up for the day. Car park is across road and although on 4 storeys and NCP it is extremely well lit and security locked door entrances so total peace of mind whilst car was parked inside - all in all thoroughly enjoyed the stay and already planning next year....
