Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nicoclasen Great service lousy breakfast
I was given a room on the second floor adjacent to the train station. Although it was noisy I tried to persevere but after an hour it was too much. I called reception and spoke with Aaron the manager who was excellent and swapped me for the last room on the top floor away from the noise. Arron was extremely polite and professional each time I went to the bar throughout the evening and addressed me by name, his customer service was outstanding.
The room was comfortable, the breakfast was appalling. It was like a scrum and whilst the staff tried their best the area in which it was served was too small. Hot breakfast items were poor quality and it was obvious where cost savings were made - such a shame as I have stayed in Holiday Inn many times before and not had such a poor breakfast. The rest area around the bar could be improved - particularly the "back to back" sofas which were too close to other guests.
If the breakfast choice and experience was better, and rest areas improved - this would have been an excellent review. Hopefully these issues can be addressed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hellium Ideal for Legoland
Stayed for 3 nights to take my family to Legoland.
Hotel was excellent and the staff very helpful with dietary requirements. Children were made to feel welcome.
The hotel is ideal for Legoland as it is only about 6 miles away and if you arrive by train it is next to Slough station.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hel123 Ok hotel but PARKING!!!!
Hotel fine ... Rooms clean ... Get a bit warm when sleeping family of four ... Breakfast great if you don't mind waiting your turn ... The parking totally lets the hotel down .... £12.80 to park over night in train station car park ... This is where you wil end up if you move your car .. We ended up using trains and buses as it worked out cheaper than paying for parking.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holidaybreak1 Good hotel
We had a lovely nights stay at this hotel, although there was not enough parking spaces for the size of the hotel, and it was abit of a free for all!
Also my husband noticed that there was a car blocking the only fire exit in the restaurant (over a very busy breakfast) and when we mentioned it to the receptionist, she just shrugged her shoulders, and implied that it didn't matter!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by adventurous2 Good location, comfortable hotel
My friend and I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Slough. Very clean, warm, convenient for the train and bus stations. No noise experienced despite being next to the train line. We wouldn't hesitate to come again.

We were visiting Legoland and chose this hotel for the close proximity and the value. Staff were very courteous and the hotel was clean. Choice of breakfast provided is really good quality. It was a very good value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CSB23 Excellent value for money
We stayed at this hotel for two nights and overall it was absolutely fine and all the staff very pleasant and helpful. The well documented car parking problem is still there but having said that the train station is next door, but they seem to have only one pay machine which is not in a very well lit position so is difficult to see what your'e doing in the dark
One minor irritation is the way all the breakfast items are cleared absolutely on the dot of either 10.30 or 11.00 depending on days. if you are a late riser be sure to get down for breakfast a little earlier!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hsin Great service with the price
The hotel location is great to visit London by train station is in front of hotel. The service and room is surprise great with the price charged. There is no noise by train when the window is closed. It's worth to stay here then London.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nina71 Clean and quiet room, comfortable bed
Room was very clean. Although right next to the railway line, you couldn't hear the trains due to the triple glazing. Could have done with more coffee / tea / milk and sugar sachets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TMJ1 People/staff made this place work well for us!
I arrived late with 2sleepy kids in tow & receptionist asked the mgr to move his car for us! Wow! (There were 0 parking spots left & i have no idea wher mgrs car ended up)
The hotel is well run, clean and right next to slough station...trainfare to paddington is 9£ from here versus 17 from reading...plus the price for this peoperty was great.
Would certainly stay here again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Munro100 A very well located hotel
I had a good stay here it is very convenient as it is right next to both the Rail and Bus Station and also has a 24hr Tesco next to it too. It is only about 10 minutes walk from the town center.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and the customer service is good.
The only downside being you do understandably get a bit of noise from the trains going past due to the close proximity of the station but it isn't too bad really.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bg11 Great if you want to bre next to the station but............
Good if you are travelling by train,. literally joins on to station. Helpful staff.
Not so good
Very small car park- limited parking
Very noisy PA system at railway station. You will need to keep the windows closed.
Hotel feels like largest number of rooms anto smallest space.
Breakfast bar small

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stu96 stayed for visit to legoland
family of four stayed here for trip to LEGOLAND, very well placed, a couple of wrong turns to get here, parking is a bit short but otherwise this hotel was excellent. We decided to eat in the lounge during the evening and the food was excellent for the price, breakfast was really good if not a bit busy. rooms very nice, clean and well stocked. all in all excellent stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by atb4 Comfortable once we found hotel and managed to park
Directions to reach hotel from M4 were vague. Once we found Mill St we drove the length of the road without finding hotel and had to ring before we found it hidden down a turning. It was late on Saturday night so we then had to find the railway station before being able to park. We did not realise that this was right next door to the hotel but several turnings away due to the road layout.
Once we arrived in the room it was comfortable and very good value. The breakfast area was kept very clean and the choice was excellent.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ohyams Bad stay at slough
First of all the walls between the rooms are like paper,
you just everything that happens in the room next to you.
We also got handicap room and when we called to ask about changing the room , they said that there's no other rooms and hang up the phone.
We totally felt unsecured in this hotel, worst night ever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by blues1 Great Stay
It was a great stay, the breakfast was good there was a descent selection. The room was clean and comfortable. The train station is right next door. Get a "travel card" and you can use the train, tube, and buses all day for 12.60 pounds.
The only complaint was parking, it is VERY limited. Parking at the train station is available but it sounded like it was expensive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gems123 Probably the best Holiday Inn Express, I have ever stayed !!!
I frequently travel across the UK and I always prefer to stay at Holiday Inn( if one is available on the travelled place). I stayed at Slough on September 2012 for the first time. It was more than I expected.
Parking is small so I recommend every traveller to check inn early. Rooms are clean and bathrooms are in perfect condition. Staff are helpful and kind. Especially the breakfast crew. They are always relaxed and not in hurry even you reach to the breakfast place just a minute before the closing time. This is an exceptional , which you rarely see in other Holiday Inn.
I have stayed many times at this place since 2012 . The hotel’s staffs have maintained their quality of service and consistently delivering the highest amount of satisfaction!!!
All these qualities motivates me to book this hotel again and again even though it’s a bit far from the Heathrow compared to other .

Pretty nice and comfortable hotel!. It has a great location being a walking distance from the Slough train station. We were in downton London in just 15 minutes. Friendly staff and awesome breakfast. I traveled with a 6 month pregnant wife and a 3 year old kid and I am very happy to say they were very comfortable and ejoyed their stay. Also, very close to Legoland and Windsor Castle. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by legoland Excellent Staff
We stayed for two nights with our 3y old son for a trip to LEGOLAND. The hotel is in a good location right at the train station. All the staff we dealt with were excellent and really friendly. The room and bathroom were really clean, and the sofabed was ready made out for us. The only issue was the TV, the scart cable kept coming loose,
the breakfast and evening meal were good.
Would recommend and will stay in this hotel again

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steve160453 Good for Stopover
As I was staying over for one night I chose this hotel due to its easy access to transport. Rooms basic but very comfortable.
Could improve the breakfast area as it can be quite cramped. The self service area is very small.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smith1 Good value for money but with car parking issues
As a family with young children we find this hotel ideal location for LEGOLAND, which is only 4 miles away (15 min drive) and good value for money. The rooms are clean and modern, staff are always happy to help and the breakfast is nice but a little basic but its to be expected. The hotel is easy to find and is in a great location next to the train station and city centre. The car park is the only disappointment as there is limited spaces and if it is full you have to park in the train station car park at a cost of around £12 a night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by legofans4 Clean, comfortable and great value for money
Booked two nights for a family weekend away - great value for money for a family of four especially as breakfast was included. This is one of the cleanest hotels we have stayed in for a long time - bed linen and towels spotless and bathroom sparkled (no nasty mould anywhere to be seen!). Only issue in the room was that the TV wasn't great and the remote control needed to be persuaded to work. Parking is an issue and we had to park in the train station and walk back in the rain but the website says that car parking is limited so can't complain.
