Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sheila/Karen Comfortable hotel in good location
Hotel staff were very friendly. The hotal is close to the town's shopping centre and relatively quiet with just a bit of road noise on one side. brakfast was good and the menu choice OK for dinner but a bit limited. The bedroom was large and adequately furnished although would have liked some drawers and for the hair dryer and mirror to be over the table as you had to stand to dry hair and make up.

I visit Redditch at least twice a year and I always stay here. The rooms are nice, big, comfortable and the service is the same each time - brilliant. Best hotel in Reddicth

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paull66 Breakfast could be improved
Hotel is very good, however the web site I booked through advertised free use of local gym which was not the case when I checked in , As I always book a hotel which has a gym i was very dissapointed, I would not have made the booking had I know, also the breafast choice was poor with no porridge or sugar free cereal available, 9 out of 10 hotels would offer porridge and shredded wheat, staff were not able to tell me if the muesli contained sugar, on tasting I found it was loaded with sugar .
I have to say that the staff on reception at check in were very polite.
Do not order a soda

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yttab Best HIX experience ever!
New hotel, excellent facilities, quiet, clean does what it says on the tin
Internal mobile phone signal non existant on ground floor, though ok outside
Staff could not hae been more friendly / communicative HIX always better than Holiday inn but this team, all of them take it to a new level,well done, made me feel valued
Breakfast sets new level...... Bacon and very nice bacon, watch and learn rest of uk! No bacon else where,, If only I could get a fresh fried egg I would pay another £5 per night!
Congratulations to the team here, regrettably I spend too many nights away from home, HIX Redditch made it worth bearing !!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Puggy B BEST HIE HOTEL WE KNOW
My wife and I have been using HIE hotels for many years now in different parts of the country. All are good, but none excel HIE Redditch. What a great welcome from three receptionists at the desk on arrival! All the staff seem so happy and friendly. My special dietary requirement was met in abundance. Two generous sized beds and a first class bathroom. Thank you.
1. Would it be possible to install the option to use sub-titles in the TV? Being elderly and hard of hearing, I did not want to turn the volume up in case I disturbed neighbours, so I really missed the sub-titles.
2. Many people find much comfort from reading parts of a Gideon Bible or the Koran. It would be good to have these books back in the guest rooms.

We needed a simple room for the night as we were attending a party. We booked here last minute and from start to finish could not fault a thing. Absolutely excellent and really clean.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ACoz2000 Generally good, breakfast area very limited space
Stayed here with my daughters using a weekend break package including Cadbury World and Safari Park Tickets inc.
Room was not a family room but two double beds, I expected two single and a double which mean the children had to top n tail... leading to kicking each other for a few hours before they finally went to sleep.
No fridge in the room... :-(
Breakfast area was very over crowded and had to wait 20 mins to be seated. However it was a bank holiday weekend and there were comfy seats to wait on.
Parking very good but not much within walking distance.... I looked for a Beefeater or similar but nothing within walking distance that I could see.
Wifi no worries but limited to two devices....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kernowyon Good location
Attentive staff at check in which made the process very quick. Good rooms which were clean and tidy. Bar was a little small which meant reaching through other guests. Ordered food at the bar with a colleague and moved to the open restaurant which was spacious. Seemed to take ages for food to arrive and then despite two identical main courses there was almost a 15min wait for the 2nd order to arrive. Breakfast was plentiful and good. Again attentive staff at the reception for the check out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by James HJ Bad pizza in the restaurant
I had dinner in the restaurant. Really, the pizza was pretty grim. The quantity of cheese was just overwhelming - a big greasy lump. The peperoni and olives I asked for where there -but only just, totally swamped by totally forgettable cheese. I didn't finish it. I suggest that whoever makes the pizza should be sent to a decent pizza restaurant to find out what a pizza should be like, because what they are serving does you (and your guests) no favours whatsoever.
Also - I am a platinum member and I am usually offered a choice of a free drink or an extra 300 points on arrival, but neither were offered this time. Was that an oversight, or has the policy changed?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by billy59 Perfect service and great stay
The staff at this hotel were perfect.
We arrived at the same time as a coach of people, who were mostly in the bar area.
I asked the receptionist if we could have a quiet room. He changed the room we would have been given and we had the quiet night we needed. Due to the change the sofa bed was not made up.
I mentioned this, and when we returned from a walk it was all done. The breakfast was the best selection of any Holiday Inns I have been to.
Polite staff and keen to make everyone happy. Excellent.
Do not hesitate to book here.

This Holiday Inn Express is a favourite stopover of ours, as a break on a long journey from Scotland to the South Coast. The staff are always exceptionally friendly and courteous and the in-house restaurant always provide excellent meals. It really is a cut above the rest.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Irybeth Holiday Inn Redditch
The Hewell Road Holiday Inn is a very modern building with a very welcoming reception area. The staff are warm and welcoming and greet you with a smile every time. The rooms are spacious, air-conditioned and very comfortable. Each has a good size bathroom, towels provided as well soap dispensers and once you have washed your hair you can dry it with the hair dryer provided. Also in each room you will find a kettle, tea bags and a selection of coffee, sugar and UHT milk. You have a choice of soft or firm pillows and a very comfortable bed to sleep on. Each room also has a TV with free view TV channels and for a charge or as an inclusive you can access the wifi throughout your stay. The rooms like all areas at the Holiday Inn are immaculate. The rooms are well soundproofed. We have not been woken by anyone coming or going during our stays.
The breakfast is first class offering fruit, cereal and cooked breakfast. There are fruit juices plus hot drinks to enjoy with your breakfast.
A great place to stay at a great price. I highly recommend this Holiday Inn to anyone who is looking for somewhere to stay within the Redditch area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MalPS Clean room and comfortable bed but!
The hotel was well presented and the room comfortable.
The biggest problem was the lack of space in the breakfast area where there were queues for tables in spite of taking breakfast at the time suggested by staff.
Because of the crowding the food was a little slow getting topped up. Some guests skipped breakfast.
Its a nice hotel that needs and deserves a bigger dining area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by marie2014 Fantastic value for money
Lovely, spotless and modern room. The hotel felt modern and airy. The bathroom door also serves as a privacy door for the toilet so that the bathroom could be used by somebody else, great if like me you are traveling with kids. Breakfast not quite a full English but still more than adequate. Breakfast time was busy and tables a little close together but it is provided free of charge so it really was amazing value for money. Receptionist very friendly. My only criticism was that the sofa bed that the kids slept in wasn't that comfortable as you could feel the folding bit. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Julie 30 Good hotel, not so good booking in experience
On booking in I was told I had to produce the same bank card I had booked with. I did not know this and did not have it with me. I was told I would have to pay again but was assured a full refund would be made to the original card. This did not happen, so I had to email the hotel a week later and ask for it. A £50 hold is placed on your bank account (which I was not told would happen). A week later this hold is still on my account,so have had to email hotel again to ask to have it removed, I would not visit this hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alan1997 Great service
On a recent visit to this Holiday Inn Express I was admitted into the local hospital, which left my wife with a lot of problems as she is disabled. I have to say that the staff were very helpful and thoughtful to needs of my wife. They carried all the bags from the room to the car, and also disassembled my wife's powered wheelchair, and put it in the boot of our car, which enabled my wife to check out with all of our belongings.
All the staff were very helpful, but a special mention must go to Urska who just went that little bit further.
I would have no hesitation in booking this hotel again, because of the friendly staff, clean rooms and good food.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yorkshirelass Perfect stay!
We have stayed at this hotel several times when visiting family in the area. We are pleased to say the hotel manages to maintain its high standards. The rooms are comfortable, clean and remarkably quiet. The breakfast well cooked and plentiful - not a full English, but still a good choice. The location is great, walking distance from a good shopping mall. But what makes this hotel really stand out from others is the quality of the staff. They are all charming, efficient and friendly, making you feel really welcome.

We were up for a birthday bash at the local football club and Holiday Inn came highly recommended. Check in was enthusiastic, friendly and efficient. The room had everything we needed and was very comfortable whilst breakfast was sublime. Worth every penny and will be back.
BIG THANK YOU to all the staff - nice job:)

Staff were friendly and welcoming, room was comfortable and clean. Bathroom modern and clean. Stayed just for one night in a family room, didn't have any need to ask staff for anything so can't comment too much on service. Breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choice. Overall good value for money, would use again if in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheDemon Regular haunt
I stay here or in Droitwich most weeks for the odd night when I'm working in the area. It's clean, tidy and the daily special food is often worth staying in for. Standard HIEX stuff with a decent staff presence - you can always find someone if you need them. Incredibly I have never seen a lift out of order here.
There's a great little Indian takeaway just 100m through the underpass - Tuki's, as well as couple of chippies and Chinese just further on. Avoid the kebab shop near the railway line at all costs - it stole a morning of my life and I'm never going back!
The shower in Room 101 (I'm not joking) is very poor pressure-wise - you have to run round to get wet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Embee1955 Everything you need for Holiday Inn Express
Parking - free for hotel guests, quiet, close to railway station and shops, all you need for a Holiday Inn Express. Yes, recommended if you are passing by Redditch, in transit, a day or two stop for business or leisure - Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon is just half an hour drive away.
