Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lernie Shopping trip to Ballymena
Stayed in Holiday Inn and was pleasantly surprised by lay out of foyer, quality of rooms and spacious car park. This is certainly a "value for money hotel" .... Room was spacious, clean, bright and comfortable. Breakfast was superb, fresh fruit , range of cereals, breads and cooked foods , well presented and attended to as required. Will return and would recommend it without reservation ,,,,if you will pardon the pun!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jennifer1982 Enjoyed my stay, couldn't have been better
Stayed last month just before Christmas, the hotel looked beautiful with all the decorations and Christmas trees, the rooms were spotless, the staff were friendly and very helpful. There was continental breakfast as the kitchen was closed during Christmas but it was lovely and definitely efficient. I could not fault this hotel in anyway. I am already planning my next visit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 No sleep...no cooked breakfast!
Stayed here on 30th Dec 2013, the aim was to avoid an early rise for our flight the next morning....big mistake! Firstly we were woken at 4.20am with the thumping and slamming of doors which continued for 40 mins when my husband went to find a staff member. Whilst I understand people need early starts for flights, this was out of hand, guests must have been running between rooms, it would have been quieter on the M2! Secondly breakfast was described as full breakfast, this was far from the case, no cooked food was available that morning at all, I have my suspicion it was something to do with the 2 coach loads of guests staying.Thirdly we did not have time to speak to reception about or stay as we had to get to the airport, so I emailed later that day...5 days later and no reply! Customer service is obviously not important.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karen21 Top quality friendly + helpful staff
We arrived at the holiday inn and were greeted by 2 very helpful and friendly members of staff. They were so kind to offer above and beyond the standard service. The reception are was very clean and looked lovely with all the Christmas trees. We all enjoyed the breakfast, there was plenty to choose from from the self service, that area was also nice + clean, and festive. Thank you to all the staff at the holiday inn express.

Stayed here last week & couldn't fault it. The staff were all so lovely couldn't do enough to help. The breakfast is the best I have had in a Holiday Inn Express and its included in the price. Really great value for money. Will definitely be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jillda50 Great Property/Bad Room
This is a great property from it's location and the friendly staff. Unfortunately our room was right next to the housekeeping closet and for whatever the reason, staff was going in and out of the closet throughout the evening and into the morning hours causing alot of noise including slamming of the doors. Obviously this did not make for a good night's sleep. I did say something to the front desk the next morning and suggested they keep this room for the last one to be booked in the future in order for guests to not go through what we experienced. Sadly, they did not offer a credit to the room charge - just a simple but nice apology.
I would most definitely stay at this property again for the value, quality and location. I would just make sure to ask for a quiet room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joanne2460 Very relaxing experience
We were attending a wedding in Ballymena. Your hotel was everything we needed. We arrived exhausted. Every member of staff was warm and welcoming, nothing was a problem, even when we requested borrowing of cutlery for a take away meal because we were too tired to go out and eat after a very early start. There was a varied mix of clientele, a weightlifting convention of some kind and everyone seemed comfortable.
The room was warm, bed was cosy and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely.
I cannot recommend your hotel high enough.
Thank you all so much. Your staff deserve high praise indeed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OllieB Clean, comfortable and good value.
An exemplary Holiday Inn Express location, everything you'd expect: functional, clean, conveniently located to access routes, good breakfast, good value and very friendly staff. Only possible gripe is that the small bar area was a bit too close to the reception and front door.

Great stay really well looked after by the staff especially the two young blonde ladies really helpful, we asked for a taxi number from reception and instead of just giving us the number the lady actually called the taxi firm herself and arranged for us to be picked up! Brilliant stay and would certainly stay again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by miamimick Very friendly staff!
My boss and I stayed here on an overnight visit to a client, and we were both impressed with the location, quality of accommodation and friendliness of the team. The rooms are massive, free wifi throughout was necessary and as it is located next to a retail park, there is plenty of restaurants to choose if you want to stretch your legs. We both agreed that on our next visit this would be our hotel of choice!

We thought the room was nice and clean until a bug of some sort run over my hubbys foot , As it was november we thought the heating would be on but it wasnt and the room was cold ,card would not allow us into our room so had to be moved to another room , we were awoke at 1.30 am by a party in the nxt room and i had to go to reception to complain about the noise on which the very (im not being racist but did not get his name ) polite and well mannered asian night trainee imformed me there had been a complaint also from a father who had young children also wakened . i sound like a moan but it was a night away for my husband and i and it was spoilt by the lack of peacefulness ,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gill162 Great Breakfast included.
This was our first trip to Northern Ireland and The Holiday Inn Express just added to the experience. The location is excellent, just 20 minutes from the International airport and surrounded by shops and restaurants just 5 minutes away. Having stayed in other Holiday Inn Express hotels in England this one lived up to the same high standard. What set it apart though was the fantastic breakfast. There was a wide variety of food including a full cooked breakfast choice and most important, it was piping hot. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and would certainly stay here again on any return visit.

I stayed at this hotel while my husband was critically ill in Antrim Hospital. The staff could NOT have been more obliging, helpful or supportive through the whole of the time I was there. I owe them a huge debt of gratitude for their "no problem" attitude when yet again I changed my room needs. Thank you again ladies (and guys) for everything.
