Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tenchlingsx4 Great location, clean and comfortable.
Our family of four stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, Slough, from 5-9th Aug. The hotel room was adequately sized, modern, well equipped and very clean.
Despite our room overlooking the train tracks, we were not troubled by the noise - we kept the windows closed at night and put the air con on.
Breakfast was basic but OK and there were enough choices to please all our tastes. The waitresses in the morning were very polite and helpful and worked constantly to keep tables clear and supplies replenished - despite it being very busy.
We had read numerous reviews about the lack of parking, however, we managed to get parked everyday, despite often not arriving back until the evening - perhaps we just got lucky!
Hotel is very well located - on the doorstep of the train station to head in to London or Windsor. Also very easy road access to the M25 if heading further afield (Chessington, Thorpe Park and Harry Potter Studios all within approx 30 mins reach).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TinTin3 Pleasantly surprised
Was expecting a really basic and run down hotel but was pleasantly surprised. Staff were lovely on reception. Tea and coffee making facilities in room. Room was very clean and comfortable. Little noise from railway. Was a mix of warm and cold food for breakfast and adequate seating. Was surprised to see the hotel serving food and drinks from the bar on an evening although we didn't get chance to sample this. Location was fabulous for people travelling using public transport. We got a train from the north east, through london and onto slough. Hotel just outside. Took the train to Windsor and picked up the shuttle bus to Legoland one day and did taxis to Legoland the next. There were facilities to store bags for the day after checking out. Free wifi was also a pleasant surprise. Brilliant!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by raz0103 Good location in Slough
Situated right next to train station in central Slough. We managed to get a car space in the car park (arrived around 3pm) as spaces are very limited. There is a pay car park adjacent to the hotel but the majority of cars were parked on single lines etc. so unless you get a space, there are other options if you don't want to pay.
Our room was facing the front of hotel so not overlooked the train station so was not noisy from passing trains. Rooms were the usual HI Express standard - family room for 2 ad, 2 ch; the sofabed is their old style that connect together - the newer/upgraded hotels now have pull out sofa beds with mattresses which are a lot more comfortable for kids. This also applies to the bathroom where this hotel had the one door for the bathroom which also then used for the toilet as well so you can wander in the bathroom with someone in the toilet (still not got used to this!).
Hotel is geared for Legoland visits so breakfast times can be chaotic - best to avoid the 8am-9am rush though we were lucky to find a table on the day of our Legoland visit.
Slough town centre a few mins walk and a large Tesco close by, though you can't short cut through the station - you have to walk all the way round, over the bridge.
Overall, a good stay for 4 days of you looking for a comfortable hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by duttons great base for exploring
Lovely staff, good base for Windsor and Legoland etc. Right next to Slough train station use it to get into Windsor instead of taking the car as parking is hard to find and expensive. Try for a odd numbered room as less train noise, but it isn't too bad. I will stay here in future when coming to the area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by paulh52 Room OK, but car parking awful
Unless you intend arriving mid-day, forget trying to park at this hotel ...which is in somewhat of a building warren anyway. Extremely limited car parking, but there is an overflow car park in the form of the railway station car park next door ...where tickets inconveniently expire at midnight when you'll need to buy another through to the morning. Expensive and irritating.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ruda Lack of parking spaces!
Nice rooms, lovely breakfast, very comfortable beds, but nowhere to park your car. A tiny car park not suitable for the size of this hotel, last thing you want to do is hunt for a space to park after driving for many hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lizharry Really helpful staff
We arrived at the hotel after a long drive from Liverpool, and our rooms were ready on schedule. Aaron checked us in, helped us with details about the hotel, free wi fi, discount Legoland passes and club rewards card.
He was still working when we returned from Legoland and still cheerful when he greeted us for breakfast the following morning.
I would recommend this hotel and plan going back in September.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hazza13 Can't fault it!
Great two night staff. Room was spotless and had everything we needed. Perfect spot right beside Slough train station with fast trains into London Paddington (20 minutes). Also right next to Windsor for more sightseeing. Highly recommend it and we will return for another stay later in the year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Legolandvisit Great location and very well priced
Ideal base for legoland. The hotel was clean, tidy and modern with comfortable beds. The pillows were fab as one side was soft and the other side was hard. However I did need to ask reception for extra pillows as one each wasn't enough.
The breakfast was OK, but it needs to be more organised. The queue was long as was very crammed.
The only downside to the hotel is that there is very limited car parking at the hotel and you have to use the train station car park when hotel car park is full. This isn't a problem however it is very expensive.
Staff were all friendly and willing to help.
Overall a great stay and would return if visiting the area again. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JCJS Superb location
Great location, right next to the train station, and easy to get to Windsor, and in and out to London. Room was spacious, especially after the shoebox in London. Staff were excellent, and it was nice as well to be able to sit in the bar downstairs and have a beer after a long day of sightseeing. The only downside for me was that there was no business centre where I can check in for my flight and print my boarding pass. Other than that, I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by emmalou77 trip to legoland
Great location for legoland. Lovely staff and great room. Only down side was the air conditioning did not work and it was very hot so had very little sleep. We were provided with a fan and a cold bottle of water. This however did not help with the heat issue and we could not be moved due to being fully booked. When we asked for a discount on the room we were told that due to it being a weekend no one would be able to do that and the best thing would be for us to email when we got home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Issy66 Good location
We stayed at this hotel as we where going to Legoland in Windsor . We asked Aaron on reception , who was fab nothing was any problem for him, the best way to get there.
We went by bus which is literally 5 mins walk from the hotel and runs every half hour.
We then asked him about trains etc into London to see the sites he was spot on with the advice - train station is outside hotel.
The hotel was nice & clean bit hectic at times in the main entrance as there were several school parties there at the same time!
Breakfast was hectic as again the school kids hogged all the seats & would stay longer than was needed.
We would go back to this hotel as location was good for where we wanted to go(hopefully next time no school parties!)
Only other thing to mention is that when your sat nav tells you your destination is on the left YES it is down a dead end street we had several attempts before asking a local gentleman

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mattoboy Location, room and comfort.
Even with a GPS we found it very hard to find , we had to ask the other Holiday Inn in Slough for directions.
We reported the air conditioner in our room was not working , a staff member told us we had the wrong setting and she set the control and said will be alright in 30 minutes , after 40 minutes the room was hotter than outside ( the outside was 30 degrees) and was impossible to sleep my son wanted to go and sleep in the car.
I again complained to reception they raised the matter with the manager on duty, finally they changed the room about 11.20 pm.
The question is why as member of the IHG Rewards Club, I was given room 214 next to the railway and when they changed to room 701 was told it was a better room out of the noise from the railway.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Webbs Best of our stays
We stayed at 7 other Holiday Inn properties during our recent trip to the United Kingdom. This was by far the most enjoyable property. The only downside--it was a bit more expensive than the other properties we stayed in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Winsford21 Family one night stay for madam taussauds
Booked last minute. Arrived to a lovely reception from Aaron and suna. Both a credit to hotel. Room neat and compact. Everything for one night stay. Used bar £3,90 for pint, which did not think too bad. Good choice of breakfast, but would say breakfast staff bit frosty. No charge for parking so bonus. Slough train station adjacent for our trip into London. Overall an excellent choice. Good value for money. Only criticism is beds are not very comfortable, very hard. Would definitely book again.

There is a huge Tesco very close by too which proved useful for us.

This was a great location, it was next to the train station. Everyone we tol where we were staying said, Slough ???? I can't believe you are staying at Slough. The room was clean and big enough, the staff was very nice. We thought it was great because we wanted a clean convienent place to stay, it could have not been better. It was great for trips into London and day trips away.

We stay 3 days, service was great, the bed is very comfortable, the breakfast very delicious.
The hotel have a near train terminal and some occasion you can heard the noise and we used the sofa bed it wasn´t comfortable.
The price is a little high if you compare whit the same hotel in US.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Amber791 Just OK
This hotel was difficult to find, and parking was at a minimum (and expensive!) The lobby/dining area was small, but clean. The dinner choices were somewhat limited, but the food was good (also expensive). Our bed wasn't comfortable (and the kids were on a pull out sofa which was even less comfortable). The staff, however, was friendly and helpful, and the free continental breakfast in the morning had some good options.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shashy Great stay... Only a small 'but'.....
Thanks for the stay last week - hotel was compact and easy to find. Location in terms of the residential area wasn't very pitchuresque. And then when we couldn't get a parking space on arrival it didn't feel great!! However once in the hotel, staff were friendly, the room just fine and the veggie options for the 4 of us in the restaurant tasty. Very accommodating of our two children who felt at home quickly.
The 'but' was about the noise from the car park. We were just above the recycling/refuse area and for glass and rubbish to be disposed of at 6.40am was not a great wake up!! Similarly, other customers leaving, talking inthe covered entrance at 10.30pm so loud that it woke our kids and business folk leaving from their stay and chatting on the phone at 5.30am on Friday just took the edge off the stay. Not much you can do about noisy guest I know...
