Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sparkythedog Good place to stopover.
Good place to break the long journey from St Ives to North Yorkshire Seems to be a problem IHG reservation system as the rooms offered did not match the confirmation. However staff were able to resolve quickly. Room quiet and comfortable. Although a busy August weekend staff coped efficiently with breakfast buffet service and no delays on checkout. Would stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Katherine and family Fantastic Helpful Staff
Great friendly helpful staff and easy check in. We had a very small problem with the first room offered as it clean but had a strong smell of smoke, but this was dealt with easily and immediately and another room was offered which was fine and clean. The staff couldn't do enough from providing more towels to bedtime milk for my youngest son. The only gripe i have is with the second sofa bed (we were in a family room) my eldest son (15 years) was unable to sleep as it was very uncomfortable due to the mattress and base(He can sleep anywhere normally he's a teenager!). My youngest son had no problem due to his size(age 8) I feel this needs to be made clear that from perhaps 13 years onwards this bed is not suitable or other provisions made for larger older children. Our double bed was fine and comfortable. This stay would be better value for money if all members were able to sleep. The breakfast was a welcome surprise as there was a cooked element to it also we were expecting only cold, Thank you the kids were pleased. Nice little pub next door helped for evening meal also. I would stay again but would look to booking different bed for my eldest.

Stayed for one night to break up journey from Nottingham to Dorset. Decent size room with great shower. Sadly no bath though. Breakfast was excellent for a budget hotel and the staff were friendly and attentive. We would stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rchiggins Just as expected - no issues, ideal
Stayed here going to a wedding locally and needed a bed for the night. Parking wasn't an issue and staff were quick and efficient and the room was perfectly adequate.
Didn't bother with breakfast because it was poor the last time we stayed at a Holiday Inn Express so decided to hit the road but can't comment on this hotel particularly.
More plugs in room - in better locations would be better!

My husband and I returned to the hotel for the third time,this time to visit places in the Cotswold's. Once again it fully met our expectations making our day trips just that little bit better knowing we had a good base to return to. Having the pub close at hand, we ate there three nights on the trot, as they fully met my coeliac requirements. The nearby Park

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sarah89 superb disabled room
I am very disabled, but travel alone.
Hotel staff amazingly helpful when I had a mobility problem.
Bed rather low, but when this was pointed out it was taken very seriously. I am confident that it will be rectified, Otherwise I would recommend taking your own bed raisers.

hotel was lovely however I had difficulty with the room and was told that they wouldn't be able to sort the problem out until the morning, this actually didn't happen until close to when we were to be going to a wedding and caused stress which wasn't good at all when we had to be at another venue

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keron66 Clean and good value for money with breakfast included
My family stayed for two nights while visiting relatives The rooms were clean, modern and quiet. A cooked breakfast was included but would have been nice to have had bacon and fried egg instead of sausage and scrambled egg. But the food was very nice and kept on coming. There were only two plug sockets in the room so when we were charging our phones we couldn't make tea as well! The plug socket under the tele couldn't take the plugs that use a USB as they point down and the desk is in the way. The staff were very friendly and there were loads of leaflets with ideas for days out. We would definitely stay again due to the value for money compared to other hotels around Gloucester.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drummer boy Comfortable room and helpful, friendly staff.
All the reception staff were extremely helpful. I inadvertently left one of our suitcases in the reception area when I was checking out. I rang through the same evening to see if the suitcase could be forwarded to me via DHL and Tiargo went out of his way to be helpful in arranging this.
Our daughter and family live in Gloucester. Previously we have stayed at the Holiday Inn but we may well book into the Holiday Inn Express sometimes in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by redruth A Good stop over
A nice relaxing comfortable stay over ,close to but not too near motorway. 2 families breaking the journey from Cornwall to Yorkshire after many delays in traffic. Fab shower ,comfy beds. We ate out at a family pub round the corner having a younger family.Hotel is hidden as new houses were being built near by we had no Satnav. Once there the staff were helpful, friendly nothing too much trouble. Only downside at breakfast just felt the staff couldn't fill up or clear tables quick enough.

Room good size, comfortable and convenient location.
Inclusion of self-service breakfast was an added bonus.
Staff very courteous and helpful. Would happily stay again when in the area - best for just an overnight and ideal for business stopover.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Celle1 Excellent value for money and dogs welcome too!
I had read mixed reviews about this hotel, particularly noise from traffic, 'poor' breakfast and service. I can honestly say we (family) had no problems with any of the above, quite the opposite in fact. We stayed overnight (Friday), to break our journey to Dorset. We arrived after 10pm and reception was very busy with fellow guests (peak holiday season), but check in was quick and efficient. The rooms (booked three) were clean, fresh and quiet from the busy reception and public areas (rooms on ground floor). The only negative would be the air conditioning which did not work, however, we opened the windows and this sufficed. Yes, there was some traffic noise, but it was minor - what do guests expect being close to a main road and convenient for the M5? It didn't affect us getting a good nights sleep. The 'complimentary' breakfast was excellent with full choice still available at 10am (contrary to many negative reviews). The food was also of good quality and you could serve yourself (variety of hot or cold). The reason we chose the hotel was because we could take our dog (she was on holiday too!), which many of their competitors do not allow and that breakfast was included (pleasantly surprised at the choice available for a 'complimentary' breakfast). Whilst I would class this as a budget hotel, it is excellent value for money and the standard is high. I would definately stay here again/choose Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Alec A Satisfactory - disappointing breakfast and some noise
Comfortable stay, but let down by breakfast:
- Had to ask staff to wipe clean a free table
- Items were replenished quite slowly
- Good choice but poor quality in hot items; tasteless scrambled eggs (from powder?!), mushy sausage, bland beans.
Make sure you get a room not facing either the main road (very noisy) or the delivery area (woken before 7am by clanking delivery of metal beer kegs. Surely the hotel does not have to agree to such early deliveries?...
And room service was missed on one day because we were in our room at the wrong time! Surely some alternative slots could be offered?...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fireblade great staff. pub next door noisy
nice hotel with very friendly staff,
when the pub empties between 11 and 12 there is a lot of noise from the car park, usual limited breakfast choice....... which on sunday morning we wee up early and first in meant we were alone in the dining room and the hot food was lukewarm at best, however still great value to have that inclusive breakfast which is more than the other chains offer.
i like hi-express, they are great value with nice people and despite the minor niggles i would recommend them to anyone

Only slight problem was when WiFi went down mid-evening. Didn't effect me too much but good service from Emily on reception the following morning when I checked out that with no quibble offered to add points to my account. Being in the travel and leisure business myself it was lovely to see someone polite and cheerful and doing their job properly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy Holidaymakers First Class Staff and Great service
All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We had our dog with us and our request for a ground floor room was met without any difficulty whatsoever. The room and bathroom were extremely clean and had been decorated since our previous stay which had improved the overall condition immensely. Good value for money. My only criticism would be that the ground floor rooms need air conditioning units fitted. It was summer and hot and we did not feel comfortable or safe to leave the window open which unfortunately resulted in a poor night's sleep.
