Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BFGB A welcome stay on each of 2 long journeys.
This is the second Holiday inn Express I have stayed at, not counting Crown Plaza Hotels too. It was a clean, presentable hotel and the staff were helpful and knowledgeable to their guests. A convenient eating establishment was situated next door for lunches and dinners whereas the breakfasts in the hotel itself were well provided in both contents and quality. A few people did mention that the addition of bacon at breakfasts would be a bonus and that they were surprised this was not included with the items already on offer but no doubt there is some reason for this omission? All the staff we saw on both visits here need complimenting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MacVicar Holiday Inn Express: First-Timers' Impressions
Although this was just a one night stopover to break up a long journey, we have been left with a positive impression and we look forward to our next Holiday Inn experience.
A family of four sharing a family room, my wife and I had a decent nights sleep: our daughters less so. In some budget hotels, they get a bed each. Here, they had to share a sofabed. This would have been impossible if they had been different genders. I guess that this facility is primarily intended for younger children, but since I doubt that the hotel would be happy with a teenager with learning difficulties having a room to herself, we have to make do.
The room was the first one along the corridor from the bar area, and there was some noticeable noise audible from the bar, although this settled down shortly after 10.00pm. Thereafter the room was quiet.
The breakfast facilities were adequate in terms of accommodation, as was the variety on offer for most of us. My wife can only tolerate skimmed milk, and none was provided. Fortunately, we had a UHT carton in the car and thus she was able to have some breakfast, but it would be better if the hotel had provided this, given that skimmed milk is now the first choice for an increasing number of people.
That is all the negatives out of the way.
Check in was fast and efficient, the welcome perfect without being effusive and affected; the room was a good temperature with facilities that were easy to use; the bathroom facilities were clean and intelligently designed. The hunt for power sockets to charge our phones was a minor challenge, but not one that defeated us for long. The provision of WI-FI for all our devices without unhelpful time limits was excellent.
The environment outside was pleasant, and although the vehicular access was not entirely straightforward it felt as if it had an appropriate level of security. The proximity to the pub next door where we enjoyed a good if not exactly budget-priced meal was also just right.
All in all, we would recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Perth for an occasional night stay. Given the minor troubling points outlined above, anything longer might require second thoughts, but for short stays, this is about right.
We will almost certainly be back.

Comfortable and suitable for needs, ideal for attending Perth races, a little out of town for most things.

My second time here and it didn't fail to disappoint !
Structure of the building makes the rooms noisy - you hear everything going on in rooms around you!
On first floor there is a strong smell of BO
To t that my shower was cold!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Elsie426919 Good stay, very friendly staff
Overall good stay, clean and comfortable room, excellent staff, breakfast ok. Bar and seating area could be more welcoming, very cold and uncomfortable. It's a serviceable area rather than somewhere you would relax with a drink. Would stay again. Only had breakfast so cant comment on food but noticed there was a sign up advertising evening snack meals.

A very convenient place to stay when journeying to/from Orkney on the A9. The beds were very comfortable, and the staff courteous and prompt to help. Bathroom was clean and well appointed. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel; and will stay there again on future journeys to and from the north of Scotland.

Overail something ll an acceptable level hotel, but the lack of air conditioning leaves a little to be desired and the location is noisy if your room is in the front by the road.

The room was clean, but very dated. Breakfast was a free for all, certainly not what you would expect. It wouldn't be my first choice if i ever had to stay in Perth again.

Sleep quality was given a poor score because the room was very hot and a fan did not help. This is the second year I have had the same problem.

As my wife has mobility problems we requested a room suitable to her needs which we received only problem was it was on the top floor ,don't know how we would have coped in an emergency,the all you can eat breakfast turned out to be eat what's left which was not a lot.I found bar prices were really over the top even dearer than Edinburgh??

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linz2014 Convenient location for the purpose of my visit
Paid for two rooms at the time of booking and no issue dropping one car off earlier at the hotel prior to the booking in time. No extra costs. Staff friendly and rooms were clean. Breakfast choices were adequate but not extensive. Hotel was very busy the night we stayed and felt the dining area/available seats and tables for breakfast was limited due to this but nothing a few minutes wait didn't solve (I appreciate many of the guests will normally grab a quick breakfast and leave but several of the guests on that morning appeared happy to linger over breakfast which put pressure on the available space).

We had a three night stay and were delighted with the comfort location and the very helpful staff. there is a standard set by Holiday Inn Express and the Perth Hotel more than exceeded the norm. We would recommend the Hotel and will stay again in the future. The restaurant beside the hotel serves good food cooked to a high standard

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Room was a disappointment
We had been looking forward to a restful stay before a weekend at a festival but found the room to be noisy and uncomfortable.
The door had a two inch gap at the bottom so we heard every noise which included barking dogs and an absconding dog being roared at late at night (we did not notice the gap until the morning).
The bathroom had a wet floor shower area which remained damp as the extractor was not working, and by keeping the window open for added ventilation it added to the noise throughout the night from the car park.
Wish we had complained but with only one night's stay booked and the fact that we were tired, we tried to make the best of it.
On a positive note, the staff were nice and the breakfast was good.

stayed for two nights treat for the grandchildren, they loved it, lots for them to do in area and they loved going for breakfast. only slight thing when checking out wasnt ask if everything was ok during our stay. But lost a small item in the room and was told they would have a look and would phone me. Would def use again, was better than I thought it may be.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brian999 Excellent bed and clean room.
We spent 2 nights in the hotel whilst at the game fair. The hotel is a perfect base for that. The bed was comfortable and the room nice and clean. The breakfast was fine as it was included in the price. The staff were friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that guests coming in after midnight make a fair bit of noise and seem unable to close doors quietly. Maybe a sign on entering the hotel to remind guests that some people are asleep after midnight. Other than that it was a great stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bobbydee TELEPHONE BOOKING HASSLE
Staff in the hotel were very polite and friendly, room was clean and comfy, only issue was with the booking, I spoke to a very nice chap to book the room, I'd already booked another room for the night elsewhere and mistakingly booked a twin instead of a double room, mainly due to the fact that I was sneakingly booking it online at work, so I decided to do it the old fashioned way and book by phone, I emphasised that it had to be a double room as I'd already had to lose money on the other booking, I was assured that I'd booked and paid for a double but when I got to the hotel it was a twin, it put a wee dampener on the weekend away but the hotel tried to get me a double but they were all booked, so all in all, it was a lovely hotel but I'll leave the booking for my fiancee to do next time. the chap on the booking line was very nice so I didn't want to complain

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mavis12 Value for Money with great service
Stayed at this Holiday Inn for two nights while attending the Perth Model Railway Exhibition. The Reception Staff were very efficient and check in was superb. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. Had a meal in the Pub next door which was very good value for money. Breakfast was the usual Holiday Inn standard breakfast and was plentiful. Will certainly be staying here again in the future.

Excellent staff - very friendly and helpful. Hotel was busy but didn't have to wait for anything. If nearer the centre of town would be one of my first choices when coming back to Perth. Rooms too hot and too noisy outside to open window.
