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.

Lot of noise and light in the bedroom
Le windows is not very good and the light coming from outside plus electric light plus noise coming from the bed it self plus noise coming from the air system : a very poor experience

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elyse18 Brilliant stay
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!

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!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by marie1966 It was ok , was hoping for better.
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.

My first time using this hotel and it certainly wont be my last..
From the moment we arrived to the time we departed, our stay was made very relaxing and joyful by all staff members.. One staff member in particular was the nightshift manager Lee. This man helped make our stay more enjoyable.
The morning staff were very pleasant and greeted us with a smile anytime we approached them.
A very relaxing and enjoyable stay at this hotel and will recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Safari1 Comfortable Room, Friendly Staff and Great choice of Breakfast Menu
Myself, Husband and 4 year old son stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for 2 nightsfrom 27 - 29 September 2013. We were checked in efficiently by Denver who was very friendly and courteous and who suggested a number of places for us to eat that evening. Our first night was prior to a day trip to Scotland and although due to our very early departure, we did not have a cooked breakfast, the continental breakfast was really varied and fresh. We took advantage of the cooked breakfast on the second morning and it was excellent. There was a great choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurts, juice, cooked breakfast, croissants,toast etc.
On the second day I asked for a couple more towels for our room and these were sent to our room within minutes.
We would not hesitate to recommend the Holiday Inn Express and felt we got really good service and value for our money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DebbieV September 19th stay - excellent personnel
I had just traveled 11 hours by myself hauling a backpack and suitcase; 1 bus, 5 trains and a taxi to get from southwest Ireland to Belfast. The gal that checked me in (around 8pm) was so nice and helpful. I was beat and asked if there was room service.... She replied that she was sorry - there was no room service but gave me an alternative - I could order my meal and pick it up when it was ready. Sounded good to me....I ordered from George, got to my room to get settled and was pleasantly surprised when George delivered my meal to my room. It was such a nice thing to do...going an extra step made my day! The two people that greeted me that night were excellent.....they knew how to take care of your guests. Please extend my thanks to them.....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Niktip Excellent all round, really fantastic
I stay in many hotels but my favourite by far is this one. The staff are truly fantastic, very welcoming, very friendly and above all totally professional. There is a great choice of food, the hotel is very clean and I would not consider staying anywhere else when I visit Northern Ireland. I would recommend this hotel to anybody and am already looking forward to my next stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yelnats Much much better !
I booked a cheap bed factory for my whistle stop tour of Northern Ireland or so I thought. What I got was something much much better than that.
It is an extremely convenient location from which to cover the whole of the province. The rooms and service are different class , much much better. The complimentary breakfast is unbelievably good too. For example I travel about 100 miles to get my sausages so you understand that I'm a bit particular, I expected the usual third rate hotel sausage but no these were much much better.
It will come as no surprise if I tell you that HIE will be my first choice next time I have to stay away. They are just much much better

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wildhorse1 Antrim HI Express
In the middle of nowhere ( at least a 45-minute express bus trip to downtown Belfast), this hotel features small hotel rooms and an indifferent front desk staff. I stayed there for five nights and one day they completely forgot to clean my room. They apologized for the mistake by leaving a "gift basket" containing candy bars and a jcouple cans of soda.
The hotel has a small bar and a television, but no laundry. There is a shopping center 1/4 mile across the parking lot, but it cloaes at 6:00 p.m.

value for money! another surprise is the Redz grill and bar adjacent to it that provides wonderful food at an attractive price.
the big outlet and asada are allso convenient for visitors
if not a bit far from Belfast city centre, I must rate 5 stars to it!
