Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kookachoo Twin Room Uncomfort
I would ensure that when booking you strongly ensure you have a double room if you don't want a twin room with an uncomfortable single bed.
A fan was included, this property does not have a/c and this just pushed the hot air around.
I know they can't be responsbible for the weather but it is worth noting.
The 'free' breakfast is ok, however tables are not cleared quickly enough.

Great quality accommodation providing excellent value for money. Handy for the East of England Show Ground which is a stone's throw away. Good amenities all around. Friendly and efficient staff. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Malc1029 quiet location, comfortable , good breakfast
Had never stayed with chain before, happy with the quiet location by the showground . Room comfortable , liked the choice of pillow type had no had choice when stayed elsewhere.
Bathroom fine , enough room and clean.
TV had variety of freeview channels and adequate size for the room.
Tea/ coffee supplies replaced daily when used.
Breakfast had a good range of items also suitable items for vegetarians.limited hot food selection i.e. scrambled eggs, sausage , baked beans but there were cereals toast etc plus selection of yoghurts and fruits.More than enough to set you up for the day. Hot drinks and fruit juices out of machines but juice was ok and hot chocolate/coffee were better than some places make by hand.
Overall an excellent location with friendly , helpful staff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Westender Nice room shame about the noisey guests
Great room, have stopped here before, excellent staff.
"Works Do" group disrupted sleep several times during night as they returned to their rooms after night out.
If possible groups should be put together near entrance and keep other guests seperate. Other guests at breakfast were also unhappy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ping20 good location
Had great difficulty booking on line , having to make two separate bookings for each of the 2 nights we stayed. However on arrival did not have to move rooms as had been suggested.
This hotel was a nice quiet location. Room layout very adequate and good wifi access. There was a very good pub (The Cuckoo) nearby. Plenty of parking and staff were helpful. The only disappointment was that the shower flow was poor- about 2 litres a minute.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great place for a stop over
We've stayed here three time and have enjoyed each visit. It's great value for money, just off the A1 with a number of restaurants within walking distance. We particularly like The Cuckoo because it's a longer walk that The Harvester and has "Pie" evenings. Also there a number of areas suitable for exercising our little dog.
Friendly, pleasant and helpful staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by babydoll744 Great hotel
We have stayed at this hotel 3 times now. Staff are very helpful,,and friendly. Room very clean. The only thing I did not like was the bed which was a lot smaller compared to other disabled rooms we have stayed in. But other than that. a great base to stay. and nice town to shop in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Steve35 Disappointing
On checking in I was allocated a single bed I questioned this with the receptionist ( guy with glasses ) as i always have a double and his response was very disappointing. Basically he couldn't care less nor did he recognise me as a platinum member other than to give me an envelope with my points details on and a letter from the management team telling me how valuable my business was lol! I asked him if he could reallocate me but his response was 'no I haven't got anything I asked him if my membership meant anything and his response was there are loads of other platinum members staying!! Well here's one that won't be, I understand if they have no doubles but this guy needs training on how to speak to customers without winding people up. They also don't offer points or the drink associated with membership but then again that just might be just this member of staff. The lady on check out however was very pleasant, as was the guy filling the breakfast.

Quiet location and reasonably easy to find with good parking. Clean and tidy public areas. Efficient and pleasant staff. Very good breakfast included in price. Fair choice of light evening meals. Room and bathroom clean and tidy. Would use again when in the area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Moynul78 Clean room but very warm and no AC
As usual standard of Holiday Inn Express except for I stayed on a hot day and room was like a sauna! The little fan wasnt sufficient to keep me cool and very noisy at night as it creaked. So disappointed as most hotels these days have A/C where this didnt.

Entered room to fine sofabed fully made up - Not required.
Folded back bed, but left with a pile of unwanted bedding, saw room service staff and none of them spoke English (This is Peterborough). Saw duty reception who advised me (in English) to place this bedding outside my room.

Please, please get rid of the soap dispensers and provide "real" soap and shampoo. They are really poor and rarely work properly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by geordierat Great value and great service
Booked the hotel the night before and I was impressed with the value for money, the comfort and service of this hotel. I could not fault this place for a Friday night stay. Internet access handles two devices watching catch up easily. Breakfast was more than I was expecting. Really clean and comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Down South Good overall but small TV and poor Breakfast
Generally OK overall, but the Holiday Inn Express at Bedford was much better for us. The TV is too small for the ground floor room we had. I had to sit on the end of the bed to view it.
Problems replenishing supplies at Breakfast. I would rather pay for something of better quality. Staff were dealing with Breakfast and Reception and seemed rushed at times.
We had to ask for Reward points instead of a free drink.
Very clean Hotel and room. Excellent location.

I can thoroughly recommend this hotel. We have stayed three times now and each time has been excellent. My wife and I stay regularly in different hotel brands and highly recommend this one. Breakfast is just enough with enough choice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Piermaster It was good, simply good
As one who nowadays spends half of his life in hotels, I'm now showing signs of 'Hotel Fatigue' - It's a building, it's a room, it's a restaurant!
HIE do pride themselves with their room quality, bed quality, bathroom quality and the £9.99 excellent value single-course dinners. Shame about the breakfast, but at least it fills a hole!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Somersetstu Overall clean and pleasant hotel
This is a clean, basic but comfortable hotel. It was our second stay and the staff have on both occasions been very friendly and helpful, They always have a friendly smile and chat. The hotel is well looked after and has a nice atmosphere. I would definitely use it again.
My only moan is the shower strength is quite weak with a sometimes variable temperature.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Valespark Oh dear, room for improvement
I have used this hotel before and its location is convenient, and the rooms etc generally good.
Unfortunately we were given room 206, which is located directly above the outside bin store area.
This meant lots of disturbance from bottles being thrown out, plus noise from staff chatting on their breaks.
Being woken early on a Sunday morning to the sound of crashing bottles is not ideal. Furthermore, if the room was a little warm for your liking, you wouldnt want to open the window vents, as the staff use the bin store area as their smoking shed.
