Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sarahjg comfortable and convenient
The Holiday Inn Express is conveniently located right next to the railway station in Slough, which made it very easy to get into London. It was less easy to get to Heathrow airport, however, which necessitated a taxi ride costing 25 pounds. The hotel was very comfortable and clean, and everything was new and well-maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was easily big enough for two and did not feel at all cramped. There was free wifi and the hotel also served dinner so really we wanted for nothing. It was a typical American-style hotel lacking in character compared to an English-style B&B, but for comfort and convenience and a good night's sleep it cannot be beaten.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mick414 Well presented Room
It was a well equiped room, which was clean, comfortable, and well presented. Bu was let down by the lack of service at breakfast on the first morning i.e. no eggs, no knives, no rolls had to ask for each and every item.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mxman Parking is limited
Excellent hotel as usual with the chain, only issue is the car park is limited in size and if full, you have to use the station which is quite expensive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bijli Good value and excellent staff
Appears to be new building- room was comfortable but the phone did not work/phone point broken..
We arrived quite late at night and the room was freezing & took few hours to warm up with the A.C. Later on we realised that a small slit of window has been left open on the top, which had made room so cold! We did not realise this as the window had heavy curtains,until when the room did not heat up and the children were cold. We asked for extra blankets and the staff were courteous & provided the same.
Bathroom door-unusual as it was the same door to the WC and the shower area was separate , but the door also could swing either ways to become the main door to the bathroom-door did not close properly so could not be locked.
Beds were comfortable.
Breakfast very good variety and lot of room space.
Check-in/check out very efficient.

Excellent facilities, value and location for Legoland. Handy for the big supermarket just beside the train station. Saturday breakfast was very busy, but still got a table and got fed so can't complain given the price! Only one issue, a constant humming noise in our top floor room. Air con units on the roof perhaps? Still managed to sleep so didn't bother mentioning it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toddy31 Most enjoyable stay
Having checked into the hotel with my family for a visit to Legoland at Windsor, we were met by the Duty manager dont know his name but he was from Northern Ireland. He was most helpful and friendly and was a credit to your hotel chain. Its makes a change from some of the staff I have experianced on my travels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mikser Friendly team and clean makes the Slough HIEX good to stay at
Arrived late, so didn't dine, reception was really friendly and lifted the spirits after a long day!
The hotel is modern and clean. I didn't have breakfast, but it is the normal HIEX fare,
Location two minutes walk from Slough station makes it ideal if arriving by train.
Definitely worth staying if arriving late by train.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kris1234 Good great value very bad parking
The hotel was great and the staff were excellent. Breakfast was ok got very busy through but that cannot be helped. The only negative experience’s were the car park which is very small so had to park down a side street which was very busy and one of the elevators was not working and we were on the seventh floor. The overall opinion was a great value hotel which I would use again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jonnybegood Great Service from ALL the staff
Reception - Impeccable in manners and problem solving.
Restaurant - Prepared a meal for three people in the alotted time and with a smile.
Late night bar - Good service but rather short on quality choice of drinks. ran out of Jack Daniels and no other choice of either whisky or brandy available. Gentleman Jack rather pricey.
Breakfast - At 5 am everything there and a smile on the face of the reception staff.
One negative note - promptly put right.
By the smoker's shelter two plastic bags with empty cans and cartons of pizzas from 6pm on Sat to 5am on Sun.
Unsightly and unhygienic.
The young man on duty in the reception took positive action on Sun am and cleared the whole lot into a large bin bag when this was pointed out to him. Full marks for ownership and service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pchase Comfortable Chain-style hotel in Slough
Very clean and comfortable chain-style hotel in Slough. If you're looking for old English charm, this isn't the place for you but if you're okay with a comfortable place to sleep and don't mind a generic atmosphere, this hotel fits the bill. We stayed overnight after a day at Windsor Castle before heading the next morning to Heathrow and the location was excellent for both. Our rate included parking, although the lot is small for the hotel size and would be difficult to get into with a large vehicle. The bed was comfortable and had a selection of soft and firm pillows. The bathroom is very well designed, with the ability to shut off the toilet area separate from the shower and vanity. The included breakfast is adequate but has a nice touch with a latte machine. My only complaint is there is no free wifi, which should be a mandatory basic hotel amenity, particularly with a chain hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dellbell Fantastic hotel
Stopped at this hotel with my hubby and 2 young girls when we spent the weekend at legoland, got an absolute bargain and wasn't expecting much, how wrong was I! The hotel is lovely, rooms are lovely size and very clean. The breakfast was great for us aswell as you can just get what you like, with my kids being quite fussy this was great as they could go and choose something else if they wanted, lots of choice hot and cold and plenty of choice for drinks aswell. Will definitely use this hotel again in September as we a visiting legoland again. Free wifi was a bonus aswell!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by janey70 very clean and comfortable room
this was first time ive stayed in a Holiday inn and was just a little disappointed really firstly found room very chilly to the extent i rang down to reception and asked for a heater and within five mins someone brought one up and apologized. The breakfast was really not up to much just sausages ,scrabbled egg and beans no bacon atall and very few choices of yogurts and fruit ,also ran out and took ages for staff to replace by that time mine and few others breakfast was cold.so good job it was free as no way would of paid for it .
good points were very lovely and clean everywhere and lovely comfortable beds and reception staff very nice .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solstice The most accommodating hotel I've had the pleasure of staying at
I chose HIE in Slough as the place to stay and to hold a workshop I was doing. I could not believe how accommodating and polite the staff was. What an all star team and I don't think I'll stay anywhere else when I come to London! It's also right near the train station so it made London right next door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Luke13 Good stay
Hotel is 15 - 25 mins max drive from Heathrow Term 5 and v. convenient for rental car return before a flight. Staff are very efficient, pleasant, friendly and helpful. Location is a bit hidden - it is next to the rail station but you have to go round the houses to find Mill Street. (Since the station parking never seems to be full it would be good if the hotel and station could share the parking area.)
Food - I found evening meals really good - nice selection, well presented and enjoyable. Breakfast - reasonable hot and cold buffet selections.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JRWDB Great advice from Aaron evening assistant manager.
We had no idea on how to travel from Slough. Aaron set us up
with all the information we needed. First we were able to take a
2 pound train ride to great dinner options in Windsor. Then the next day we got great directions on the fastest cheapest way
to get to the London Eye. The hotel is about 300 feet from the
train platform , with an express to Paddington and a tube to Waterloo, you get into London in short order.
Most of all, it was the friendliness and advice from Aaron that
made our stay. We are going back this weekend on our way to Brussels. On business in the past we have stayed at the Holiday Inn Ariel at Heathrow..Slough Holiday Inn Express is a far better deal. Less expensive, breakfast included, and on the direct line of trains.
Thanks Aaron from Northern Ireland

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Byork Great place to stay
We stayed for3 nights as a base for visiting London. The staff on reception were extremely friendly and offered us lots of advice on places locally and travelling into London. The room was very clean and very quiet during our stay. As a family of 3 we were able t o get the train from the doorstep of the hotel into Paddington for under £25 which included use of the tube all day. Considering the hotel offers free parking, free breakfast and free wi-fi this is an excellent way to see the city without breaking the bank. We would definitely stay here agin on future visits.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stezza Much better
I had a nightmare stay before xmas - complained - hotel very sorry. This time great - no problems. The only comment is re the TVs. In this day and age where we have FreeView tvs - why do the providers of tv services to hotels decide to drop certain channels - Dave, Yesterday, Really Channel4+1 - doesn't make sense - the free internet helped a lot - you need something to distract from the scenery that is Slough. Hotel location and a 6 minute train ride makes Windsor much more appealing and the hotel a much better deal all round. There was no gym nearby that I could find - that is a Slough issue not the hotel
