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.

Staff excellent,breakfast too ! Always have a great time in this hotel.A lot of noise in carpark outside so you were forced to close the window probably just bad luck that night.Shopping centre just across the road is very enjoyable.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stevie268 Very helpful staff
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.

I could fault this hotel in anyway, the room was lovely and so was the food. It has wifi everywhere and that's so hard to get.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Watche07 Uncomfortable room on hot summer days/nights
This hotel is severely understaffed. Hotel reception staff also act as housekeeping, bringing things guests need to the room themselves, they also clear food/tables at breakfast. Food disappear into the kitchen quite fast in the morning, way before ten am. Room was uncomfortably hot during the warm summer days/nights we were there, we had to request for a fan and the staff brought us a tiny fan which didnt really help much to cool the room.

Must say the reception staff were helpful when I had to change my room because of a broken bed and noisy toilet. But the breakfast area was not very tidy and the food was not appetising at all. Sorry but have to say I have been in much better holiday inn expresses.

Rushed business trip to Belfast, booked this hotel at the last minute and got there neraly 11 pm. the staff were really courteous and helpful, even got me a takeaway pizza when they realised there was nothing hot left on the menu!
And the complimentary coffee after I came back the next day all tired out was wonderful...thank you guys, you made the hard journey more bearable.
The room and bathroom (which happened to be disabled access-friendly) were passable and comfortable, I really had no time to notice anything else!
Will stay here again if needs be.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buckybelle Friendly staff and tremendous service
My husband and I stayed at HIE for a total of 10 nights on our recent trip to Northern Ireland. We had a most comfortable and relaxing visit in the area and enjoyed our stay at your hotel. Leann and all the front end staff were very pleasant and helpful. The service staff took care of our room efficiently and quickly each day. The breakfasts were bountiful and delicious. All the staff were rushing around to be sure that everyone was given prompt and courteous service. Walking distance to outlet stores, restaurants and ASDA was a plus for us. My only suggestions for change would be that the bed, although very comfortable, could have been a standard queen size and I was not able to access WIFI from our room.
