Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jo80 Would be good value if you got what you booked!
We were attending a wedding in the area and booked this hotel as it was close to the venue. We arrived at the hotel at 1am but I did ring at 14.30 to check we would be ok to arrive at this time and I was assured that the double room I had booked was guaranteed. Check-in was smooth and very quick and off we went to our double room or so we thought! We had been allocated a twin room which was completely unsuitable as my husband had a broken hand which was in plaster so needed the extra space of a double to sleep comfortably. I complained to reception who at first argued with me that I had only booked a standard room and therefore it could be a double or a twin. Once shown proof a supervisor came along who did apologise but said there was nothing he could do as the hotel was fully booked and for some reason after I rang to confirm my double room it was changed to a twin! The only thing they could offer was a full refund but were could we go at 1am in the morning and did not know the area! Another guest very kindly offered to swap rooms as he was a single person but had been allocated a double room with sofa bed! Very disappointed and did put a dampener on what had been a fantastic day. We were then woken at 6am by school children running up and down corridors and slamming doors. Would not stay at holiday inn again unless there were no other options available.

All in all good VFM but please change those breakfast sausages - is there any real meat in them?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emma7 Overall a good hotel
The room was clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful throughout. The only thing the hotel would have benefited from was air conditioning. We stayed over one of the hottest weekends of the year and there was little ventilation. Otherwise a comfortable stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Keca Excellent Location
Keeps the cost of being in the Liverpool catchment area to a minimum whilst ensuring you retain the convenience of either visiting Liverpool or in transit to nearby locations or ferry services.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dabhand A good stay spoilt
The normal hotel services were to their usual standard and we were enjoying a pleasant stay until a group of schoolchildren began to run wild around the corridors, slam doors and generally make a lot of noise.
Not only did this continue until late at night but it also began very early ( 6am ) the next morning. The on duty staff did what they could, but the teachers seemed to care little and do less.
We have begun to notice an increase in the number of school parties using HI - I hope this will not continue at the expense of other guests.
Finally, putting loyalty card holders in rooms abutting fire escapes is not good practice if you wish to retain them - this is the second occassion recently that this has happened.

Friendly greeting from the staff on arrival which was late in the evening. The room was very spacious, the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom spacious and clean. The choice of breakfast was a little limited but overall the value for money was excellent.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 All good, then I went for breakfast
I could live with the limited choice, the scrambled egg solidified under a heat lamp, the dried out baked beans...but the sausages...dear god the sausages. The nastiest cheapest thing I've ever put in my mouth.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Anita49 Very nice accommodation and great value
We thought almost everything about it was excellent. Lots of parking, great front desk service, lovely clean rooms.
My only negative was there was not enough seating area at breakfast so we had to sit in the lounge area, as I was with my Parents this spoilt it a little. I do think that they should extend this area. Plates were not replaced quickly enough and I had to ask one of the ladies who wasn't that friendly, this is the only reason I didn't put excellent for staff and service.
There wasn't a great choice at breakfast but what we had was lovely.
We have booked to stay at a Holiday Inn at terminal 5 in London in October!!!

We arrived at Holiday Inn, Knowesly, prior to a wedding at 'the big hall'. The staff were friendly, and courteous. Rooms, and restaurant, were clean, modern, and ideal for our family- occasion. All this was rounded off, with a hearty breakfast. Thanx!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gina1234 Stay
We have stayed at the property over 20 times now but sadly this time was not so great.
We had a group of boys banging, kicking doors in and shouting in the early hours of the morning it was ridiculous.
I would suggest that as there are 3 floors in the property you prioritise floors to suit your clients.
Then at 7am the fire alarm went off no one called to tell us what was going in so everything was a panick, we went door stairs and no one seemed to bother that the alarm was going off.
The breakfast was also cold and there was not much of a variety this time around.
Iam a travel agent and I feel that I need to right this review

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HLLEEJR Great Staff, Good Service and no Parking Space
Good comfortable rooms, but problem with finding a parking space because of speeding awareness classes, far too many people at one time. Class size need to be smaller.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verydisappointedcustomer A very poor hotel experience.
As someone who rarely gets to stay in hotels I was looking forward to a stress-free comfortable evening, having left Oxford at 5am to drive up to Aintree for a conference. In December (i.e. more than two months in advance) I had booked a twin, non-smoking bedroom to share with my daughter. When we arrived, after a very long day we were given a double, smoking room which reeked of stale tobacco. In fact the whole corridor reeked. Two sets of friends who were also at the conference had exactly the same experience. Whilst the duty manager did make up the sofa bed for me so that my daughter and I did not have to share the double, (she is seventeen so it would hardly have been comfortable), the sofa bed was so impregnated with the smell of cigarettes that I could taste it in my mouth whenever I woke during the night. When we got home we had to wash everything that we had had with us as the smell was so bad. The management were fairly ineffectual, in that, they recognised that they had given our pre-booked rooms to other people who had arrived before us but just shrugged their shoulders as though there was nothing they could do. Needless to say, none of us will ever stay at a Holiday Inn Express again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disgruntled134456 Awful
Pre Booked non smoking room, allocated a smoking room, tough luck as full. Room was smelly and freezing cold.
Breakfast was disgusting, cold over cooked food (powdered egg), no space to move in when getting breakfast.
Hotel are more interested in the naughty drivers classes which are clearly a money spinner.
No where to park during above courses.
Staff were lovely and helpful.
Will never use again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by betty49 Noise
The hotel was very comfortable, however there was a lot of noise in the corridors until the early hours of the night and again in the early morning. People were also heard talking outside at the back of the hotel and it appered to be noisy as sound carries at night.Breakfast had a limited choice. it would be usefull to put on the website of the hotel that takeaway food can be ordered delivered and purchased at the hotel.

Booked a room in December to stay mid February. The afternoon of my stay I got a phone call from the hotel saying they had overbooked and could they have my room and move me to another hotel. I was staying with a group of friends so declined. Got to the hotel to check into the non-smoking, twin room that I had booked to share with my adult daughter only to find we had been given a smoking, double room. The smell of stale smoke was unpleasant and all the clothes that I had taken had to be washed on my return home to get rid of the smell. The hotel made up a sofabed for my daughter to sleep on and refunded £10. All in all, not a pleasant experience. Far from satisfactory.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good value comfortable and quiet room
Pleasantly surprised. Room a good size and comfortable bed. TV took a while to figure out, but then every hotel TV is different.
Downstairs a reasonable bar to have a drink, food available although didn't try out. Reputation from a colleague who had stayed there was food was pretty average. Breakfast nothing special . Low cost sausages alongside usual fare was to be expected
Overall, considering the price, a pretty good deal and I will stay again here, and probably use another sister hotel in the chain on my travels.
