It was the second time we'd stayed there. Very good service provided for what we required. Staff very helpful and professional and location was central for what we required for a good price. Would certainly stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rogerbiggles Christmas holiday
Over all it did what I needed , a room to sleep in after a long trip from Essex. Wasnt overly impressed with the professionalism of the staff. Yes it was xmas eve/xmas day and Boxingday and the staff probably didnt want to be there ,however they should have made me feel like i wanted to be there ,the bar was a ghost town and took a long while to get served or even see anyone to ask for a drink or bar menu.
Bar food was eventually ordered but wasnt very good.
The free breakfast was ok the croissants were very crispy as if they had been there over night ,also the bread was a little stale.
The cooked breakfast was pretty grim aswell i dont think the scrambled egg had ever seen a real chicken ,beans where very sweet and sausages were ok.The only reason i didnt complain was the fact it was free.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dean52 Comfortable with great staff
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Room is a little small by American standards when you spread out your suitcases, but normal for Europe.
Breakfast was excellent and staff very helpful with information.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by flyingpigeon Serves it's purpose
Room very clean and tidy, bed not very comfortable but maybe more down to individual preference than anything although it did creak every time you moved!!
Had issues with some of the food they served us at night but they were happy to remove cost of those items from bill when we complained. Breakfast was good, enough choice.
Staff were all friendly and helpful.
You wouldn't want to stay here long term but serves a purpose for a quick overnight stay before catching a flight.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by StephenTh Really Disappointing
We have stayed at this hotel many times before as it is close to family members who we often visit and have always been impressed by the friendly staff and pleasant environment.
This time however..
We decided to pop to the hotel earlier in the day, knowing that we ought to check in and it would save hassle when we returned later that day after a family party with our two young children, we were promised the sofa bed would be made up and that after double checking that the room was fine for 2 adults and 2 children - so far so good..
When we arrived late that night with two half asleep children the sofa bed was not made up as was promised, we called reception who said they would send someone up.
On answering our door a little while later, we were told we were put into a room in which the sofa bed was listed as broken and we should never have been put into that room. After a frantic re-pack and move to another room we were left with two wide awake grumpy kids who then didn't get to sleep until several hours later - far too late. We were told the manager would be in touch in the morning to sort this out or at the very least apologise (this was not requested but offered by the person who came up).
On checking out the next morning we mentioned to young girl serving what had happened (the same girl who had checked us in the day before), who laughed and said it wasn't her fault as when we checked in we disappeared too quickly and she did not have chance to change the room (this was quite insulting as we had spent some time waiting on check in whilst she double checked the room was suitable), we most certainly did not rush off! We mentioned that the person the night before had said the manager wanted to speak to us to which we were just told no, she knows what happened and everything was fine - It made us feel like we were complaining and the queue of people behind were clearly impatient and becoming annoyed with us! At no point even late the night before did we complain, we were simply going with why we had been told.
We left as soon as I checked out thinking I just wanted to get out of a really awkward situation.
That is one of the worst customer service experiences I have ever had!

Excellent Quality ( and spotlessly clean) Room.Arrived in early hours of morning prior to transfer flight from Liverpool Airport. Reception staff (Andris) was very helpful and courteous. Less than 5 mins drive to Liverpool Airport. Will definitely use again. Excellent value for money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by reasonableguy Great Comfort and Bad Food Quality
The only thing stopping myself from a 5 out 5 review was merely the food quality........The rooms where without a doubt very clean......comfortable and a pleasure to stay in.....the staff also very helpful and enjoyable to chat with throughout my stay as was staying there all weekend due to a family christening....the food however was terrible.....pizzas seemingly supermarket ones being heated up in the oven and sold at crazy prices...also breakfast was worst experience to date of all hotels ive stayed in.......i found myself eating toast and a yoghurt as the rest was the cheapest food ever tasted.......i would recommend this hotel purely for its handyness to airport.....fantastic staff and room comfort only...also cheapest rate taxis aswell

I always find you get great value for money with the Holiday Inn Wherever you are in the World. Always spotlessly clean with efficient staff and service. This Hotel did not disappoint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by waulkelektrik Spacious clean quiet rooms.
The room was very spacious and well equipped, with hot drink making facilities. It was about a mile from the airport, but they provided a cheap reliable taxi service. The hotel was of a modern style, but a bit lacking in character.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OllieH A relaxing way to start your holiday
We enjoyed staying at the Holiday Inn Express at John Lennon Airport before our recent holiday. We were greeted by helpful and friendly staff and slept well. Taxi transfer to the airport took only a few minutes and was not over priced. We had a late flight home and once again stayed at the hotel rather than face a long drive home. Again the service provided was good and allowed us to have a relaxing end to our holiday. One little gripe. Breakfast was a bit chaotic. Very difficult to get a clean table......or indeed a table at all. The set up meant it was difficult to get to the coffee or juice or toast without standing in the queue for food. Quality and selection of the food on offer was good although a bit of bacon or fried egg would have been nice.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mredavis Not a great place to stay
will aviod this one in the future, there customer service is so good they can't even respond for the correct hotel on tripadvisor. couldn't find my booking, harrased for infromation that is in my profile, insisiting on taking a credit card for extras - i arrived late evening leaving first thing hadn't planned any extras. they can't decide how far the airport is away and you need to pay extra for a taxi and the amount vairies. to top it all off they tried to charge me more than the afreed price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scarfell Convenient for Airport
This hotel is new and very handy for the airport. It was clean and tidy and the staff friendly. They were under pressure because of a computer malfunction so life was difficult for them. Now I don’t know if it was the bed or I was unlucky but I had the worst night sleep in a long time and got a terrible bad back which 4 days to recover from. I can’t say if it was definitely the bed. The hotel was busy throughout the night probably due to the proximity of the airport and I could hear doors being closed. Breakfast was standard HIE fare but the cooked food was good and the lady looking after the area did a very good job keeping it clean and tidy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Col1892 Very uncomfortable bed
Spent 5 nights in the Liverpool John Lennon Airport hotel.
After the first night we had to ask for an extra duvet to be fitted below the sheet to try and make the mattress more comfortable.
The first 4 nights were quiet and peaceful, but on the 5th night the levels of noise and rowdiness coming from the neighbouring rooms was unbearable.
Shouting, chanting and frequent excessive slamming of doors meant we did not get to sleep until gone 2am.
Despite several calls to reception to ask for something to be done about the noise, there was no improvement.
When checking out, the staff were not remotely interested in hearing about our complaint, to the extent they couldn't even bring themselves to ask if we'd enjoyed our stay.
I will recommend to anyone who asks that they dont use this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mandystar nice hotel
As usual the room was lovely and clean, well the second room we got was, the first room had a bad stain on carpet and we were worried we'd get the blame so we reported it to desk and they moved us immediately which was brilliant.
Also a toby carvery had been built next door which wad ideal for our evening meal.
I was not recognised as a priority club member though like I am at your Doncaster hotel which we stay at twice a year.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tezzie33 KEY CARDS not working and BACON! BACON! BACON!!!!
We arrived very late at just before midnight and fortunately the staff were still wide awake. We just wanted a quick check in and off to our room and get our heads down for some much needed sleep. Armed with our key card we arrived at our room and try as we might the key card just would not work. Back down to reception and issued with a new card, up to the room along with the porter - but the new card didn't work either. The porter let us in with his master and promised to return with a new key card which this time worked. Sleep beckoned. Off to breakfast and we were shocked to find NO BACON and to be told that it wasn't part of the standard Holiday Inn Express breakfast. We were shocked! The rest was at best average but in reality POOR the sausage was tired and tasteless, the scrambled eggs left out to long but the baked beans were OK whilst the toast needed 2 tours of duty through the toaster. The room was good, the bed was good as were the pillows and we slept pretty well
