Well positioned hotel for me personally.
Modern, Clean and with good services.
Only minor gripe is breakfasts could do with more selection on the cooked food and our room, the shower curtain was smelling a little.
Even so I will definitely be back.
Very helpful friendly staff.

I needed somewhere local to stay after a night out and, after looking around, booked the Holiday Inn Express because of its excellent location next to a cinema and lots of restaurants; fast food outlets and a 24 hour supermarket. As there was only one double room left, I hastily booked it, then a couple of days later, I read reviews about the hotel on a well-known website which does reviews of hotels and holiday attractions: the reviews of the Holiday Inn Express on that site were not great - and some reviewers had posted photos of stained seats and carpets. This concerned me that I would be going to some grotty hotel.
Thankfully, I needn't have worried in the slightest. I was immediately reassured as I walked up the steps of the Holiday Inn and stepped inside to reception. The hotel was beautiful - clean, bright and modern and the receptionist was very helpful. She showed me how to add my car details for free car parking onto the computer screen and told me where my room was.
I opened the room door, expecting the worst (after those bad reviews) but I was delighted by the room - it was clean, really spacious and again, bright and modern. The TV was the older still but worked fine. The bed was comfy and had ample pillows. There was a kettle with tea and coffee and soup/shower gel in the huge shower room.
Breakfast was great - large, help yourself selection of cooked and continental style. You could take as much as you liked of everything, including coffee and juice, croissants, bagels and even make your own toast or teacakes.
How could anyone have complained about this fantastic, value-for-money hotel? There was also the fairly late check-out time of 11am, which was helpful and breakfast was served for hours.
We had a brilliant stay and would not hesitate to book again and to thoroughly recommend this hotel to everyone.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by phillips777785 Good overall but poor WI-FI connection
Great location although can be quite noisy from outside traffic build up. staff are really friendlty and helpful. my only complaint would be the poor quality of the wi-fi which drops off frequently.
This could possibly impact on business users working from the hotel and lesuire stayers wanting to relax in use wi-fi for a movie of facetime.
