Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flugelguy This hotel is outstanding
When arriving at the Holiday Inn Express one expects the check-in process to be efficient, but I was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the greeting and the excellent service I received. I would like to commend Samah on the outstanding customer service skills she displayed. The room I had was clean and modern. Overall I had an excellent experience at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone travelling for business or pleasure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SPad Our stay 11 - 14 Jan 2013
We had a short weekend booked at Holiday Inn Express Newbury Park and had a wonderful experience at this place. We had 2 rooms booked and they were both clean and tidy.
This is the first hotel I have stayed in, where I did not find a strand of hair in the bathroom or dark mould on the shower curtains or walls.
The rooms were basic but all that was needed for a short stay, was available.
The breakfast was tidy; could have appreciated a few choices for vegetarians; who had nothing apart from baked beans , but nothing major to complain about.
We paid for movies for 24 hrs on a discounted price which we enjoyd but could have had some more options in the movie selection.
The stafff were mostly friendly and helpful.
All in all, apart from a few issues, it is definitely a place I would be happy to go back to.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JRC54 Xmas at Newbury Park
I have stayed at this HIE many times to visit family nearby. The location is perfect. Due to travel delays I arrived very late but there was no problem in parking or check-in. The restaurant for evening meal was closed on 25th and 26th December but facilities were made available to re-heat food purchased from outside the hotel if needed. The check-out staff remembered me from a previous stay which pleased me. This also suggests that HIE keep their staff. The hotel was clean, safe and a fair price for Xmas so I could not ask for more.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FencingDad Not the greatest Holiday Inn Express that we have stayed in
We have stayed in many Holiday Inn Express hotels and this was definitely our least favourite so far.
Our room was way too small, the in-room internet did not work
You could only get wireless in the lobby
Only one small ice machine in the lobby serving the entire hotel
this is one that we will avoid in future

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boyleyj1 Excellent customer service.
I stay at many hotels.
The hotel was in very good condition, in a good location with plenty of parking.
I was recognised as a platinum member as soon as I arrived, service for food and at the bar was very good.
This ranks as one of the highest in terms of staff friendliness and service. All the staff were excellent but I must particularly mention Lucia and Rabia who were particularly good.
Will stay again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GoodFellow2012 Poor Service
I was very dissapointed by the service. I had to ask for toilet rolls and laundary bags etc. The staff were nice but service very poor. This is the first Express in many years that I had bad experience.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mani Good Hotel, Bad 'Best Price Guarantee'
This is the 2nd time I stayed at Newbury Park. Hotel Room was clean, comfortable, quiet and well located near public transport.
However the stay was badly damaged by the Customer Service of HI Express' Best Price Guarantee. Despite confirmation from their Service Helplines that my booking type was recommended to be eligible, the claim was not honoured.
In conclusion, hotel was fine, but extremely let down by the corporate customer service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Firebird Excellent Gateway
I needed to be within 20 minutes of London City Airport at the end of a tiring business trip in the London and South London Area and found this hotel almost by hazard at an affordable and reasonable rate. The staff were charming, helpful, pleasant and seemed to be anxious to ensure my stay was pleasant.
The room was clean, everything in its place, even though in a busy area the room was quiet, the air conditioning worked and it too was quiet. Cable access internet in the room but attaching to an Airport Express had my wi-fi up and running in minutes. I crossed the road for an evening meal to the small restaurant across the road, pleasant and reasonably priced, food average but acceptable.
Bed was comfortable flat screen TV, so what more could on wish for, the bathroom small but perfectly adequate with everything one needs. Breakfast self service but pleasant and adequate. Overall impression Very Good and I would certainly stay in the hotel again if in the area or needing a gateway to the M25, M11. Highly recommended for business use and the odd night; Newbury Park is not really a holiday destination.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OHAR Great Hotel
We wanted an economical weekend in London to see a West End show, so chose to drive down from North Yorkshire, this hotel is perfect because it has good safe parking and is a five minute walk to a Central line tube station which gets you into the city in about thirty minutes.
The hotel is really modern, clean and great value for money, the rooms are really nice and all of the staff very helpful.
We would highly recommend this hotel for a stay in London and we will definitely use again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gasman Pleasant stay , good location.
I enjoyed my short stay at this Hotel, conveniently placed for this side of London.
Would recommend the Turkish restaurant across he road for all your evening meals. They do an 'early bird' for those on a budget.
Would certainly stay at this Hotel again, would have preferred a double bed in place of twins, when I booked i did request a double room. But they were comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barkeeper Comfortable rooms, great location for travel to central London
A very pleasant hotel with excellent free breakfast. Limited evening food available and bar with comfy seating. Ideally placed to underground for easy access to central London.
Only issue with hotel is wildly changing prices according to whats on in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Venue ~ un-forseen circumstances
Overnight Deliveries at the adjacent BP garage (4am) very very disturbing Also constant run of fast cars which speed past as they have just crossed over a busy A12 intersection If you can afford to stay here make sure you enjoy the view of urban Essex from the stairwells at any time of day
It is convenient for the Central Line Tube - Reception is fast and welcoming And this is one of the most secure Holiday Inn Express so if you stay alone you will feel safe Plus it is modern and comfortable
On two seperate bookings, the electric and lights 'tripped', meaning I had to use the bathroom in the dark and I could not boil the kettle - only on one of these days I was offered to use the bathroom of an empty room opposite Expensive maybe ?? Depends on what is important to you when You stay away

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by emmaleanne Great stay, not so good booking
I booked this room about 2 weeks before we went and about 5 days before i wanted to extend my stay to the night before as well. When i phoned to arrange this the man was very nice, sorted everything out and reassured me my booking was complete (reference number as well). Then, when on the day i realised i left the credit card i had booked the room on at home, i phoned the hotel to ask if i needed to turn round and get it. This led to the man telling me he had no conformation of my booking and (at 5.30pm and still an hour away) i was told if i did not get there before 6pm i would not have a room waiting for me. It turns out the credit card company had rejected the charge (which the original man should have known) and no one had phoned me to get other card details from me. Eventually, after about 20 mins of this man telling me i didn't have a room, theres a 6pm cancellation policy, he might be able to get me a room, he's not sure...we managed to secure the booking using another card. The overall stay at the hotel was nice but this confusion with the booking spoilt it for us when we were celebrating.
