Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fifitrixabel Convenient location and great service
We spent two nights here during a very wet and cold March. The service was excellent from start to finish. We liked the room, which included a sofa, so you weren't confined to bed to watch the substantial TV. The shower was great and everything immaculate.
We go to Bath frequently and so we knew the short cut through Sainsburys to the centre - about 8 minutes - and as it was so wet spent our last morning at the Thermae Spa, warming up - a short 8 minutes walk at the most. The staff held onto our bags after check-out, so that we could return to the City Centre bag-free for the last day.
The Holiday Inn team and their hotel made the couple of days great for us - many thanks indeed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KarateBryan Great staff, good location.
The staff are excellent and very accommodating. They make you feel welcome and look after your needs.
The rooms are clean and they have just replaced all the beds with new ones. The televisions have also been upgraded to a large up to date flat screen with a good selection of freeview channels.
The location is good with it's own car park although there is a charge for parking. The city centre is just a 15 minute walk away.
There is free wi-fi in the main reception / bar area but there is a charge if you want it in your room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aragoneses Comfortable and close to the Centre of the city of Bath
.The hotel is ideally for visiting the city of Bath. The prices are reasonable for a city that is expensive, especially for the Spanish visitors. Rooms are comfortable, clean, although they do not have lockers. Ideal for short stays and visit the city of Bath, which is very nice.
I would return again to this hotel and certainly recommend it

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jj1789 Nice hotel but bed too soft
My family and I spent 1 night in a family room. The kids had a really uncomfortable sleep as the sofa bed was very small (we then spent 2 nights at HIE Cardiff Bay where the sofa bed was really comfy). The double bed was also very soft so suffice to say none of us had that good a sleep.
The hotel was well situated to walk to the centre which took about 10 minutes. The choice for breakfast was actually very good and more choice than I expected (toast, croissants, cheese, yoghurts, cereals, fruit, sausages, scrambled eggs, juices, etc). It's a good hotel to use as a base for exploring Bath.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bella39 very pleasant staff and very welcoming and helpfull
very pleasant stay for 3 nights and great for the centre of bath as didnt want to use the car to get in and out of the town during our stay, staff was excellent and the room was clean and had everything we needed the heating system played up a little but this was sorted promptly for us, the only negative was the breakfast was average and a little inconsiistant over the 3 days .

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gralbert Room OK, Breakfast Awful
Stayed here prior to a business meeting the next day. Arrived late evening to find the car park full. Reception staff suggested that I parked in a side street!
Room was clean and tidy but the bar was soulless with nowhere to relax.
Breakfast the next morning was disgraceful. A bit like boarding school but with limited food and no bacon. The only advantage of this hotel was its convenience. I will not stay here again or recommend it to either friends or colleagues.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Praguenext great one night stop over
the hotel works well, great reception staff who take an interest in you. The room was clean, tidy and comfy.The small bar is a neat asset. Breakfast is good, buffet service and some cooked stuff all from 06.30am. I'd happily use this hotel again. Parking is a bit of a squeeze.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LJC1969 Good location
We stayed for one night on 15 February.The hotel was busy with several hen parties in the lobby on arrival,but the check in was fairly swift.Parking spaces are limited,and parking cost was £10 per night.
The hotel is in a good location and within walking distance to the restaurants and shops in the centre of Bath.
One problem we had with the room was that the heating/air-con was broken,it wasn't a particularly cold day fortunately so we managed without for the one night.
Also,our room had an interconnecting door to the next room which meant that I could hear the guests drunken conversation
Breakfast the next morning was very busy,not many tables for the amount of guests dining.
Overall I would probably stay at this hotel again if I'm visiting Bath.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SRE3 Car Park Fee
Only negative was the £6 car parking fee, something I think is totally unjustified, even more so being a Platinum member. What is so special at Hi Inn Express Bath compared to others in the chain that are as popular but do not charge for parking.

Stayed for one Saturday night. Very helpful staff on reception - Laura - who gave us directions for the short cut into the city centre making it only 10 mins walk. Also recommended excellent Italian restaurant - Martinis.Room was very clean and quiet - overlooking graveyard!! Breakfast waas pretty good, but choice of hot breakfast limited. Overall very good and would certainly stay again.

Very good service from Reception.
Breakfast good, however, think chef could stretch to bacon to go with the sausages.
More fruit selection apart from grapefruit segments would also be nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Digger1991 Great location, friendly and helpful staff
The location is great - just a 10 minute walk from the city centre, with a supermarket and a lovely Indian restaurant just across the road if you don't want to venture even that far. There were a couple of glitches with the room but it was clean and perfectly pleasant and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast was fine except that the beans were lukewarm! This hotel is the perfect good-value base for exploring a fabulous city!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gripper Excellent stay
Went to stay at Holiday Inn Express, Bath on 10th Jan for 2 nights for wife's birthday treat. Travelled down fron NE Essex by car, arrived at 1pm. Parked in car park and went into reception to pay for car park. Met with a warm welcome, quickly paid for car parking (paid £12 from then until 4 pm on checkout day 2 days later#. Reception will give you a map and point out the walk into town through old railway stn. Took about 10 mins to walk. Checked in about 4.30 ish, straightfwd and friendly. I had requested a quiet room and that is what we got, overlooking the cemetery #they were quiet !). There was a birthday card waiting in our room for my wife, a nice touch from the hotel staff. Room was excellent, spacious and spotless, no problems at all. If you want more tea/coffee etc, they available near reception to help yourself, hope people don't start abusing that! Breakfast was good and included. Buffet style, cereals, croissants, juice, toast, scambled eggs, sausages and beans. Toaster takes a bit of getting used to, nothing new there ! Set us up for the day. Check out was qiuck and easy. Would definately recommand to anyone and stay here again. Well done !
Stayed January 2013, travelled as a couple

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kittie100 Friendly staff and comfortable room
The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Good location, only a 10 minute walk into Bath. An added benefit was getting breakfast included, which made the stay very good value. The only negative point during my stay was some other guests were very noisy until late at night.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nicki123 Breakfast let down
This hotel is well located and modern and bright in appearance.
The room was very comfortable with all you would want for a comfortable stay.
The let down was the breakfast where every thing that was provided gave you the impression that there was a lot of "economising" going on. The fruit juice was fruit squash and the hot option was scrambled egg beans and sausage. Surely the "chefs" could be a little more inventive than that and use quality bread for breakfast and fresh fruit rather than tinned grapefruit segments and LIDL type sliced bread!
The parking in the hotel grounds was excellent BUT £6 for the privilege was a bit steep!
Overall I enjoyed the stay but I came away with the impression that there was too much penny pinching at the expense of the overall guest experience. Come on Holiday Inn you can do better!

First time at the holiday inn express bath and what we got exceeded our expectations hence high reviews. Location really impressed us along with in particular the friendliness of the staff - nothing was too much trouble. Will certainly return and would not hesitate to recommend. Only aspect which could be improved was the breakfast in particular limited choice of hot food and watered down juices.

Enjoyed our stay in Bath. Good value for money and the staff were friendly, professional and helpful. Breakfast was great, with as much as you like and plenty of choice. Our only criticism is that we found the mattress a bit hard and lumpy for our liking. However it hasn't put us off and will be happy to stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aleksNYC great place to stay when in bath
It isn't in the center of Bath, which itself is an amazing little town full of charm, but what it lacked in being in the center of the action is a little more tranquility which you might not be able to find otherwise very easily in the center of Bath. The hotel is still close enough that you can drive within minutes home or walk if the weather is nice (we went in late December so this option wasn't as favorable but imagine it would be quite nice on a nice spring/summer night, maybe even fall too!). Got a room on the first floor so no elevator/stairs were needed to be involved, which was great since we had pretty heavy luggage. Got our sleep on and were refreshed and ready to go out the next day exploring. Only stayed one night but wouldn't have minded staying in Bath longer and at this Inn certainly it would have been an easy decision to make. Only thing i would have preferred was the hotel appearance wasn't much to write home about, but it is a Holiday Inn so i'm not expecting a Waldorf Astoria experience, and maybe a better selection for breakfast (though we did get there right as it was ending so the best food may have already been eaten), and it seemed a bit silly to be charged extra for using the parking lot (at least it wasn't very expensive).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tazzie45 New Year's Eve in Bath
Usual Holiday Inn Express hotel - clean, comfortable, welcoming. There was a problem with towels when we arrived which was very quickly resolved. People complain about the quality of the breakfasts but I think they are ok!
Not able to relax when we got back to the hotel as some very drunk and loud people in the bar, spilling their drinks all over the floor, so we sent to our room. Offensively loud behaviour - not just drunk. Bar was closed but they had stocked up on bottles. They sat right by the entrance to the rooms - very thoughtless as they could have sat elsewhere. I felt very sorry for the staff. Lets's hope they don't return.
Couldn't hear them in my room as I was some way away from reception so did get a good night's sleep.
Don't think I got anything extra for being a priority club member. Car parking was extra at £6 per night which came as a surprise.
