Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Markeyboy Convenient for the M40 corridor
The Holiday Inn Express is perfect if you need somewhere confortable to stay up/down the M40 corridor. The bonus about thsi HIE is that they actually have sky sports - although there is no Wi-Fi in the bedrooms which is a bit of a drawback if you wish to work in the evening at your room.
Overall though worth a stay - and treat yourself the the Thai Orchid in town for dinner!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TheDonDon Need to plan
Hotel was generally ok. The experience was significantly let down by what appeared a complete lack of planning by management /staff
The weekend we stayed the moto gp was on at Silverstone and it was clear that the clients needs were not understood. This was especially clear with the shambles which was breakfast.
I would avoid it if major events are on in the area unless it is much better organised/planned

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tanzag Clean comfortable rooms.
Rooms good, clean and comfortable, hotel well situated and clean, the only downside was the breakfast which was very slow coming, nothing left even though we got there only 10 minutes after breakfast was served, waited for over half an hour before having to head off on an empty stomach as we couldn't wait any longer, coffee machine was also empty.
We weren't the only ones who were disappointed with the breakfast, overall tough I would recommend this hotel and may stay again next year...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pazzer Ideal for Overnight stay and very helpful staff
I booked late and as as a Platinum Elite member this was immediately recognised by the staff , and they accomodated my wife & I with a comfortable room. The hotel was very busy but has a large lounge area , to relax and is located within 2 minutes walk of sveral Pub's and Resturants , that are also Children friendly, so Ideal if you plan to stay with your family.
I would recommned this hotel and wish to thank the staff for their freindliness and helpfulness .

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cmac terrible bed
If it wasn't for the terrible mattress I'd give this five stars. The Holiday Inn Express hotels are very good but totally let down by their awful beds. The mattresses are terrible. They are soft, bouncy and collapse in the middle if two people sleep on them - fine probably for one. I slept SO badly. Get decent mattresses HI !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hesk As always, Holiday Inn Express didn't let us down.
This hotel near to the motorway and town of Banbury is ideally located. It is up to the high standard set by this chain. Room a good size, well equipped and above all spotlessly clean. The only gripe is that there is not enough surface area in the bathroom to put anything, like toilet bags etc. which we
Hen you are travelling you always have. Small gripe.

Exactly what it said on the tin. Except for the advertised wifi in all rooms. There was a network cable in mine instead, which wouldn't fit in my iPad.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TELFROMETUDD Holiday Inn Express does it right
Having used this establishment many times over the last 3 years I am able to compare and contrast performance.
I am glad to say that it has remained high for all this time.!
On my most recent stay the room was clean and fresh, it provided all the comforts I need for a brief (in this case two nights) stop-over. Breakfast is basic, but good - Starts the day OK.!
My only real concern is that the bed mattress and pillows are beginning to degrade and I think will need upgrading/replacement soon (I wonder if the hotel management actually "test" this aspect of the room.?).
The usual problem with Wi-Fi connectivity still exists and I wonder why a big company such as the IHG cannot fit a few Wi-Fi "repeaters" around the hotel to improve this.?! Not a deal breaker though.!
In summary the stay was good, the room very acceptable, the staff friendly and approachable even when a bit stressed with some issues with other clients.! I have never experienced a problem with booking here - always room.!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ruby7 excellent room
Room was spotless and neat as a pin, even a telephone by the bedside. Shower room roomy and bright. Two quality liquid soaps in shower room and by wash basin. Good size remote TV. Comfortable beds. Would have liked a wall clock in the room and 4 tea bags instead of 2. Have already recommended Holiday Inn to several people after our stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by billtw tiny room nice breakkie
"family room" was tiny with small double and no bath - theres no baths in the entire place. Not v comfy bed and cramped shower room. didnt sleep well at all.
breakfast was very good for this type of hotel and the communal area nice downstairs. Bascially a posh premier inn but premier inn has baths, bigger shower rooms and beds and biscuits.
basically nice hotel for single businessman - not the best for families.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by adrianplatinummember attentive, friendly staff. good location
Located just off the M40, but no obvious traffic noise. Modern, clean hotel. Fairly standard hol inn express design, friendly reception staff make for a more informal experience.
All rooms have wired internet (free ), but if you need WiFi, either have to work in bar/reception, or borrow a WiFi adaptor (which for some reason are stored away from reception in a locked cabinet in a locked cupboard it seems ! Takes ages to get one.
Only 2 criticisms- WiFi internet connection speed is terrible, like dial-up. And the sausages at breakfast- don't even try them. Please, get better quality ones

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Minounette Value for money with excellent staff
Was greeted by very friendly and professional staff. The reception area was clean and welcoming. Our bedroom was very comfortable and offered a choice of pillows. I was pleasantly surprised by the choices offered for the complimentary breakfast all looking and tasting very fresh. It was good to see such dedicated and happy staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by northernline42 Room pristine including bathroom.
Stayed one night 03/08/2013.
Impressed with hotel and room facilities and cleanliness, also staff approachability and helpfulness. Spotless lounge areas and reception.
No restaurant but Frankie and Benny's or Toby Carvery
options available across car-park.
Breakfast options need reviewing and quality of hot food disappointing - particularly the 'scrambled egg - which was strange in consistency and tasteless.
However, we would happily stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hen2 Great staff but no wireless
I stayed here on business for one night. The staff and the facility where great but the there is no wireless in the guest rooms. They did bring me a router which still did not work. I had a proposal to send and I couldn't send it. I spent 2-3 hours trying to get the system working. One of the guys from downstairs spent 40 mins in my room and he was very helpful but it still didn't work. I expect this chain / brand to have a wireless system in place and I am very disappointed that they didn't.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cubster16 Excellent value
My husband and I stayed for one night with our 2 young daughters (ages 2 and 4 months). We were attending a wedding on the area. Having telephoned to advise we would need to check in as early as possible, we were delighted that our room was ready at 11am when we arrived so that we could get ready for the wedding. The room was exactly what we needed and a travel cot was provided free of charge.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful. They were even able to provide an iPhone charger as I had forgotten mine.
Breakfast was great. Our 2 year old loved it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by suzies Repeat stay just as good
Had a two night stay in a twin room facing the front car park, which is a bit quieter than the rear rooms,although I have stayed in those in the past and have not been disturbed by traffic. Check in fine, room clean, tidy if a little sparse with regard to hanging space and drawers, but perfectly workable. The air conditioning worked fine and was not too noisy. The breakfast provided was fine, cereals, toast, scrambled eggs and beans set me up for the day. The staff were very pleasant, Overall a good stay and I will be repeating the experience again in September.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NotAngeorAngela Very pleasant stay
Staff friendly without being annoying. Room very clean, bed very comfortable. Breakfast basic quality but substantial. Need more milk and tea bags in the room.
One very minor annoyance was that the toilet dripped and when I told reception the next morning they already knew about it, hotel wasn't full so why did we get that room? Good thing it didn't keep us awake or I'd have been very annoyed!
All in all a pleasant stay for my 6 year old and I.

First time have stayed at a holiday Inn and not welcomed as a Platinum Guest. Nothing mentioned at all in checking. When checking out staff we're more occupied chatting with themselves than checking me out which was done hastily finally. Not a pleasant experience

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bazzo22 Excellent Choice...............
... for accommodation in the area for a tourist. Near to the M40 but far away enough not to be bothered by noise, close enough to Banbury for night life such as pubs and restaurants - just a short taxi ride.
Great staff very helpful and cheery. Clean and still new looking hotel. a reasonable price (should have bacon with breakfast rather than two types of sausage).
