Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bolanov Ok if you have to...
The hotel is fine - everything one might expect from a Holiday Inn Express. A few things that might improve the experience:
1. Fix the internet. When downloading Excel files is nigh on impossible, Skype remains a thing of dreams.
2. Deliver from the restaurant.
3. Mini-bar/ fridge in room
4. More coat hangers (although they did bring me an additional portable hanger half way through my stay. I think they were embarrassed that my clothes were still folded in my suitcase...
5. Fix the ice machine - it's been broken for three months now
If you have to visit one of the businesses in that business park or in the immediate area, then stay here. Otherwise, don't waste your time.

Quick service. Neat and tidy rooms for the business traveller.
Full breakfast served. The only detractor is that the breakfast is the same every single day, so if you stay 5 days, this could become really unappetising.

Great place to stay in for business purpose; training. I booked this place due its proximity to woodmead office park; to avoid traffic that would cause unnecessary delays to work.
My stay was brilliant with very friendly receptionists and good break-first in the morning.

Neat hotel to stay at near to where my business takes place and central to suburbs, however due to it being on the freeway it is very noisy due to the traffic

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Maringa Comfortable bed, clean but small room
Easily accessible hotel in a quiet environment after discounting the traffic noises from the high ways. Close to a shopping complex for those who need to do some shopping but transport logistics are not that favorable.

Get your beer draught tap / machine to work, the breakfast needs more tomatoes and the scrambled eggs tasted a bit plasticky but otherwise highly recommended establishment.
Great staff !

I was happy to stay at Holiday Inn Express 1 night for my business meeting in JNB, but I must say I would not stay more : noisy room due to highway and slow staff, especially at reception level: nice people, but sincerely slow and not focused on customer satisfaction.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KBB111002 You are centrally located, in the thoughts of this hotel's staff....
This is a hotel, which is true value for money. If you have a self drive nothing better than the hotel's location. Most important, the staff is so helpful and courteous that you would love spending your time here. Me and my family were here for vacations and I recommend this hotel strongly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AminEG Very Budgetary for Business
I used to to my business mainly in wood mead area. Thus the hotel is a perfect match for me.
The hotel is very quite and relaxing for me at night.
As the hotel is in a remote area, from the city, then I suggest if you rent a car so in case you need to go out to the city. Or you can arrange with a travel agent to get you taxi when need. It will far cheaper than normal taxies(yellow cabs).
Other than this everything is just to value you pay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OMG L0VE Twins Good stay, what we'd expect from Holiday Inn Express
My wife and I are more used to going to Holiday Inn Express than any other IHG hotel, specifically because of the service and that they always include breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. They printed directions for us to get to the city when we needed it. It's a modern building and design and we got a nice view from the Golf Course across the street. The location was also good, being not too far from Sandton City. Overall it was comfortable, clean and simple with good service.

I stay here only for business, and the location is convenient. Last visit, they took an hour to bring an iron to me, and it was broken. I spoke to the manager who did not see this as a safety hazard. Front office staff lovely and friendly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by deondps Only good for location convenience
Stayed at this property for 6 nights in August 2013. The location is great for convenient access to Midrand for business or the convention centre. Having stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Umhlanga I expected the same ambience and level of facilities. However, this property was 100% worse than the excellent service and accommodation of the Umghlanga sister hotel. This is a huge property and it is surprising that, with nothing much around in the line of conveniences, the attached Butchers Block restaurant would be of such bad quality. Sadly it is NOTHING compared to the branch attached to the HIE in Umhlanga! The food is of such a low standard and so expensive that it boggles the mind that this restaurant still exists! Please do not eat here if you are used to good restaurant fare. The hotel's breakfast is okay. The practice of glazing croissants with honey is a bit absurd and the cold meats are of low quality. Better and stronger coffee would make breakfast more palatable. No manager ever spotted on duty and breakfast staff sometimes aloof and tetchy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mish25 Poor Service
Service that was received from staff upon arrival was very poor.
Staff didn't have a smile and check-in was to long.
Staff insisted that we had a problem with our bank cards when paying but in fact the problem arose from the hotel machine as the card was used at an outlet where it worked just fine.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kenzogs Expensive for what you get
I used the HIE Woodmead as it was close for business purposes and I wanted a change from B&Bs. Room was OK - just the layout of bed to desk blocks the walking space. Hot water was only luke warm and would give sudden cold spurts (??to wake me up??). Breakfast had variety but was the same every morning. Only some of the staff reacted in a friendly way when approached (reception and breakfast lady) - others gave me the feeling they were really doing me a favour by responding. I did not use any of the other facilities.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JImbo557 Fantastic customer service
The staff at this hotel are very friendly and helpful. One very memorable example was when I needed to buy some golf balls from a shopping centre about 5 minutes from the hotel. The receptionist tried to call a taxi and it turned iut that no taxi would get there in time because of the traffic. She asked th manager who took me in his won car. Truly excellent service

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by All78 Feedback
In general, the hotel is OK. Air conditioning a little bit noisy during nights (in my room at least) and not so many channels available on TV. Also, TV is a little small.
Bar closes a little bit early. Maybe an hour later would be better.
Restaurant was OK, but not everything available from menu.
Perhaps, an extra amenity would be better (let's say a pool or a pool table, or some foosball tables, etc.
Wifi signal was really really bad and poor from my room. A signal analysis per floor is totally needed to confirm the APs needed to 'light' every corner with good signal.
