Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SIR BUCKY okay stay
Hotel okay to stay at. rooms fair though i found tv to be rather small to watch. staff reasonable but one (the youngerr of the lot) did not really go out of his way to help support a simple request. the more experienced one were more helpful. parking nicely located. hotel reasonably modern but not glamourous had a good eating facility close by

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stuball No eggs????
Very strange experience. Firstly, the staff overcharged me by £100, so they had to refund on credit card. No big deal, but they then went on to tell me its happens quite a bit as staff key wrong amount into card machine. Dishevelled manager needed a shave. Strange note through door; no eggs for breakfast so just bean and sausages. Surely, they could have found some eggs overnight! Coffee is undrinkable. It really is inexcusable to use these terrible powder drink machines. Simple filter coffee would suffice.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Neverstop Stay there if you want the location next to the East of England Showground
Note that it is a Holiday Inn Express, not a Holiday Inn. That seems to make a world of difference. Yet it is not cheap. Check-in reminded me of dropping my car off for service. I was misled by the web page into booking dinner bed and breakfast. "Dinner" was an extraordinarily limited selection of boil-in-the-bag sort of food (tasted OK for what it was). Only one type of red and one type of white wine. Breakfact was dire. No acceptable substitute for the absence of bacon. Sausages filled with rusk. All rooms have showers.
Good points: free good internet. Well located for the East of England Showground (except for our event the entrance was 1 mile around the circumference of the ground - not the hotel's fault). The room was comfortable.

Made to feel very welcome by reception staff on arrival. Rooms clean and adequate. Breakfast good quality - sausage, scrambled egg and beans but no bacon!
Good free Wi-Fi and nice little bar on site.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sue117 Lack of air conditioning!
After a very good check-in experience I went to the stairwell towards my room. As I went up the stairs I could feel the heat hit me the further up the stairwell I went! On arrival to my clean room, I immediately had to open the window as the room was very hot. There was a fan provided which I ended up having to rest it on the chair next to the bed to try and help me cool down so I could get to sleep! I did manage to sleep in the end but it wasn't a very restful night. Its a shame really as the staff were very friendly but helpless with this situation. Left feeling unfortunately disappointed :(
