Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ClassicGraham Great service in peace and quiet
Stayed for one night to do some shopping and visit family in Stoke.
We received a warm welcome on arrival and throughout our stay the staff were very helpful.
A bit more choice at breakfast would be an improvement but it was adequate.
Room was pleasant and quiet so we enjoyed a good rest.
The hotel is easy to get to and is convenient for town centre and various attractions in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 nice hotel little pricey...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jane1960D Another great stay!
Another great stay at this hotel - Friendly staff, nice and clean with easily accessible parking. Breakfast later at weekends so you can have a lie in.
Will be staying again :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Richard0166 Monthly stay at Holiday Inn Stoke
Undoubtably the best Holiday Inn in the area. I've stayed there for one or two nights every month since 2009. Had a minor issue with housekeeping this visit but dealt with straight away by Gareth.
If you have to stay in Stoke or Newcastle under Lyme this is the hotel to stay in. Book early though because it gets very busy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Resomo Nice place to rest after work when outside
The minimum I look for in a hotel is a clean and silent room with a comfortable bed. After a long day of work travelling and being many miles away from home this was a nice place to have a rest.
I'd like to recognise Julia in the reception. She was so charming and helpful. I wanted to make some jogging and she indicated a nice route to do so in a nearer canal. She also helped us indicating where to have dinner even with the late it was. Each time I came back from running and dinner she asked about the experience. Normally I don't see this professionality in my country.
During check-out there was another girl, also very kind. Defintely a good human team in this hotel. Having a comfortable bed is easy for any hotel, having such nice team is very difficult. ¡Congratulations!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tiger01505 Spotless room and comfortable bed
Had to attend family funeral, very pleased with the choice relative made. Spotless room and comfortable bed. Not bad rate for this neck of the woods. Very good Harvester restaurant just a few steps away. Had a good nights sleep in a very comfortable bed with choice of soft or firm pillows. Would definitely use again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steve1041 Excellent staff and service
The visit overall was very good as are all our stays at HIE's. We were booked in by Amy who went the extra mile to be friendly and welcoming. A nice smile at reception makes a big difference and makes you feel valued straight away. Although the hotel was very busy (football match day), Amy later called me by name when I walked past reception. Thank you. (I just wish my memory was that good!!)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Bedford Belle Excellent Service
I arranged a group booking at this hotel for a long weekend, we had a good room rate and the booking etc was taken care of by Kelly and her team in a flawless manner.
I would definitely recommend this hotel if in the area.
We did share the hotel with a lot of football supporters & children due to its location but any noise from them was kept under control by the staff on duty.
The only down side was that the bed was really too soft which is unusual for a HIex.

My friend and I stayed here for a trip to alton towers and I could not fault the place! The staff were amazing and the hotel was so clean! Breakfast was very good and had plenty of choice! We are going to stay there again next year and can't wait!
The room had everything we needed , the shower was lovely and hot all the time and was very powerful! The bed was fantastic, to the point where I have found out the bedding and actually bought it myself.
Thank you holiday inn!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Melml Great service
Stayed in a family room for 3 nights......room was a little smaller than expected, not much space when the sofa bed was laid out but overall fine and clean.
Noisy a/c unit, so didn't use it the second night, luckily the weather was cool. May not be so ok in the summer.
Great front desk staff, especially Steph, who was very helpful with any of our requests, ie extra duvet for uncomfortable sofa bed, plates for takeaway Chinese etc.
Complementary breakfast was great, nice bonus. Harvester next door was also very handy.
Only real issue we had, were kids running up and down corridors very loudly, although this is not the hotels fault obviously, just inconsiderate neighbours!!

We had a great two night stay at the hotel, thank you. The bed was a bit soft but lovely duvet and pillows. What stood out for us were the staff, they were kind, helpful, pleasant and responsive to any questions. This was our second stay at this hotel and we will be back next year.

Stayed for one night. Having stayed before and received excellent service, we were not disappointed this time either. The hotel was busy with contestants for a dance competition but everything appeared to be well organised.
The room was very clean and we had a very comfortable night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Discerning68 Convenient, comfortable and clean
Overall my wife and I enjoyed our stay with one exception - staying at a Hotel in England we expected a typical 'British cooked Breakfast' but were very disappointed that bacon was nowhere to be seen - the reason given at reception when leaving was less than convincing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jam2066 Great Birthday Stay
A very nice stay with very friendly staff. It was my Daughter's 8th Birthday on the Sunday of our stay and when we arrived on Friday night a very nice man called Gareth greeted us, especially my Daughter and she was amazed at how he knew her name and when her Birthday was, and when we saw Gareth he asked her what she was up to, and because he paid attention to her she was over the moon, even getting a little soft spot for him!!!
My other half moaned as there was no bacon on the breakfasts but apart from that, everything was great. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone

Stoke has a charm and the weekend was very comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Freestyle51 Excellent value
Room was clean and bed was comfy even the sofa bed. Nothing was to much trouble. They even provided me with a free sealed small toothbrush and toothpaste as I forgot mine. The breakfast was good and it was served from 6.30am which was ideal as I had an early start. and it was in the price of the room. I will definitely stay with Holiday Inn Express again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by allblack71 Cancellation refund
Really unhappy. I had booked 4 rooms admittedly on a non-refundable rate in order to entertain some customers. The customers cancelled on me more than 48 hours before, but the hotel would not refund my money. I will never stay at any Holiday inn express again. Their loss, I would have stayed with 3 other colleagues every month for the remainder of the year, we have now booked elsewhere.

I was reluctant to book another Holiday Inn Express after my poor stay in the Holiday Inn Express in Birmingham but this Hotel was great Value, Great Location and very comfortable. Situated beside a nice pub the room was clean and comfortable. The hotel had a nice bar and breakfast area.
I would recommend this for business or pleasure
