Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gertie1 Poor food, poor heating, excellent staff.
Such a shame, this hotel could be great - the staff certainly are. The room was cold and the heating didn't help at all, I ended up asking for another duvet which I sat wrapped in until bedtime. The menu is not very interesting and breakfast was diabolical - grey scrambled egg, cheap sausages and baked beans.
Good points - the room was scrupulously clean and modern, the internet and the shower worked well and there is plenty of free parking.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ricki53 The good and the not so good.
I have stayed in this hotel several times before and will be staying here again.
However, I'd like to mention a few areas where improvements could easily be made.
The desk area and bedside tables had been dusted but not wiped so sticky marks made by a previous guest remained.
I arrived at 6.30 pm. The room was cold, and the in-room heating controller was switched off. It took at least 2 hours for the room to warm up after switching on the in-room heating. The following evening the room was warm at 6.30 pm although the heating controller was switched off.
The water outlet of the shower tray was partially blocked so while taking a shower the tray began to fill with water, some of which appeared to have returned from the drains. The washbasin water outlet was also partially blocked.
Generally the shower cubicle was "past its best". The design and construction of the toilet / shower rooms in the Shrewsbury HI Express are not up to the high standard of other HI Express hotels..

We stayed here for one night in December 2013, the staff were friendly. Our room was ready early as requested which was a bonus as we had to get ready early to make a wedding. The room was comfortable and clean. The free breakfast was good too. Overall an enjoyable stay

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mike2705 Shoddy at Shrewsbury
Within walking a few metres from reception to room 5 (which just down the hall) we were greeted by a large stain on hall carpet and a damp musty smell. Room was of a good size and comfortable though. Overall good for an overnight stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cargwyn Spotless, comfortable and polite ,friendly, helpful staff
We have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express before and again we have been really please. The rooms are spotless well maintained, spacious and comfortable. Staff are extremely polite friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was lovely simple and well cooked with plenty of choice both hot and cold. It was easy to find the hotel and in an ideal central position. The only thing that slightly spoilt the stay was an unruly football team being noisy during the night. Hotel staff apologised and were going to deal with the matter. I definitely intend to stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by janey3 Comfortable beds - little bit 'tatty'
The room was very pleasant and the bed extremely comfortable - the only drawback was that the office chair had a missing wheel and the anglepoise lamp on the desk did not work, I did not need to use them anyway so did not complain, The decor was more as i would expect from an older hotel and just seemed a little 'tatty' . I cannot comment on the food as I did not eat here but i thought the bar prices were quite on the expensive side.

After choosing a venue for a Christmas shopping weekend, we needed a place to stay. Holiday Inn Express gave us a fantastic option, after a meal in the bar on the Friday night, we had a great nights sleep in a very clean and modern room, with a great choice of quality breakfast items in the morning. Will definitely book again for next year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sunflower31 Would definitely recommend
My partner and I chose the Holiday Inn Express whilst visiting Shrewsbury for a weekend break.
The staff were very friendly throughout our stay. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was lovely. The only negative experience we had during our stay was that the heating in the room didn't work. We phoned down to reception and the receptionist came up with a heater for us. He did something with the heater panel on the wall and said it was sorted. However, heat never came through! He was very friendly though and the heater he brought up with him was more than sufficient. If we had been staying for longer I would have brought it to their attention again.
Would definitely not put us off staying here again as it was great for a weekend stay. I would definitely recommend it.

As soon as we arrived there was not a problem. Parking was easy and secure, staff greeted us pleasantly and after checking offered and gave helpfull advice for our queries on the surronding shrewsbury amenities. We had the family dog with us and there were no issues at all.

We stayed on 2 seperate nights in one week.Really surprised by the roominess of our bedroom.Spotlessly clean and welcoming.First night in a room overlooking the road to Shrewsbury.Constant traffic and worse from 6am when people were going to work.Requested a quieter room on the car park side for our second visit.Staff very helpful and obliging.Much much better....more relaxed experience.We think the value offered is exceptional.Spacious,comfortable,clean rooms plus a reasonable choice for breakfast means that we will stay again.
