Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by richstamp Expectations exceeded
We have used smaller Holiday Inn Express hotels before, and have generally been satisfied. This one-night stay, necessitated by the need to be in the City Centre, exceeded our expectations, and there was really nothing about which any reasonable person could be dissatisfied. Reception staff were polite and helpful, we were offered a choice of floors, the lifts worked well, the room was immaculately clean and very quiet (we were on the 7th floor), and the arrangements for the discounted parking at the adjacent NCP facility were efficient and the 50% reduction meant 24hrs for £12, which I consider very reasonable. Even though breakfast time was busy, there were free tables, the hot food was hot (you know the choice is going to be limited, if you want a gourmet breakfast go somewhere else), and the toaster worked! All in all, a very acceptable budget hotel experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mojo 22 great room and friendly staff
We visited for a 1 night stay. We were greeted by friendly efficient staff. The room was great, it smelt really fresh, and was very clean. The beds were even better than the ones we have at home! with fresh crisp linen. The bathroom was really nice with lovely thick towels.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We didn't use the restaurant as there wasn't a deal of choice and what there was seemed expensive, instead we went for a walk around and ate out locally. Breakfast was good, there wasn't as much choice as other Holiday Inn Expresses we have stayed at, but still enough to choose from.
The only downside was the parking, i wasn't too sure about leaving the car in a public multi story car park overnight, but it was fine, though the parking charges do bump up the overall cost.
We have booked here again next month and would definitely recommend it.
