Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thomtom Wonderfully helpful staff
What a pleasure it was to stay at the Holiday Inn Express in York. The staff were all really helpful. I had a couple of unusual queries and everyone excelled themselves at solving them. The room was immaculate. I asked if I could possibly have a quiet room. I was put into a room with nobody above or next to me which was wonderful service. The breakfast was lovely and the lady running it kept everything topped up and tidy whilst being cheery with all the guests. The only problem I had was finding the Holiday Inn as my satnav insisted it was located 500m further down the road.

Perfect for what we wanted - clean, comfortable rooms, great price. Staff really friendly. We couldn't get the tv to work and the man came straight up. He didn't even mind when he realised that we hadn't switched it on at the side! We asked for an extra towel and he got that for us, and then came back to turn the heater up. Only a few minutes drive from York so perfect. We always stay here when we come to York

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JJJames Ok stay but shame about the internet
Generally ok stay but could not get the wifi internet to work at all in room over last 6 days of 7 night stay. Staff tried several times to tinker with both mine and my partner's laptops but to no avail. Some sort of conflict had arisen with the booster the hotel was using and if we ever wanted to get online it had to be done in the lounge only by connecting direct to their router without going through the signal booster. Both myself and my partner are IT savvy (my partner is actually an IT consultant!) and so we weren't being 'stupid' or 'dumb'. There really was some sort of conflict with our systems and the hotel's. We are used to having teething problems with hotel internet but to experience a place where we were staying for a whole week and never be able to get online in the bedroom except for the first day is unheard of.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by narayanankrish Great service.. went the extra mile.
Arrived late to check in and the paperwork was already done and the key card was ready to collect. One signature and we were already ready to get into the room. The date being 25th Dec, they had a card and a small box of chocolate ready.
It was quite a chilly morning and the staff told us to feel free to use de-icer to get the car ready to run; good service considering another HolidayInn offered to sell the de-icer for slightly elevated price when my car iced up.

We stayed for 3 nights over Christmas. The staff made us so welcome. We were even given a Christmas card and some chocolates! The rooms were not serviced on Christmas Day but we were given extra supplies.
The hotel is warm and quiet and the rooms have recently been refurbished.
Thank you to all the staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Whistleblower Room cleanliness excellent... although a tad small
Don't be put off by the shabby-looking Toby pub next door when you arrive, or the 'tatty' signage for the hotel itself tucked behind the pub... inside it is excellently presented. Be prepared to park in front of the pub as the hotel car park is very small #not enough spaces# - not ideal re: the way the pub looks!
The rooms themselves are spotless, although much smaller than most HI Express rooms; a real squeeze if there are children sharing the room too!! The staff are very good & welcoming; yet again I had to ask for the drink voucher or extra points I am entitled to as a Gold Elite member - this should be already dealt with/included in my Check-In stuff upon arrival. Breakfast was usual fayre & all OK. No lift, only stairs. Good location with only a 5-10 min drive into the centre of York. All in all - very good re: the HI Express itself.

Room very clean and comfortable. Breakfast better than expected as included hot options as well as continental. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We were staying for family wedding nearby and staff booked taxis for us and the morning after enquired as to how the day had gone!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Curlywurly09 Great stay
The manager on duty on the evening of our arrival was excellent. Although he was on his own and we had arrived late, he was not phased at all when we realised I had forgotten to request a disabled room and we had been given a 2nd floor room with no lift. He very kindly phoned another customer who had not checked in yet and they kindly agreed to swap rooms. While he was dealing with our check in he was serving at the bar, answering room alarms and was totally calm. The rooms were spotless, spacious and comfortable. I can thoroughly recommend this hotel, it is one of the best that I have stayed in, regardless of cost. Will definitely return soon. Thank you.

From initially booking this hotel for a quick shopping trip to staying there, it didn,t disappoint. Staff (Stuart) emailed me with alternative rooms available to suit me & even remembered when we arrived! What an asset he is to Holiday Inn (NB Hotels further up in the group could learn from him) Hotel clean, comfy, staff friendly & helpful. Good Toby pub next door for evening meals , both kids thoroughly enjoyed their stay especially free Wi-Fi. Made our shopping trip more relaxed starting off after relaxing stay & breakfast ( which is quite good!) Recognition as a Priority Club member also.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for 1 night, we found the staff pleasant and welcoming. Hotel room was very clean ,comfortable, and great value, we have stayed at more expensive hotels in York that were not as good. We would definitely use this hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JMMBMW Friendly and helpful service
Stuart, who was on the desk when we arrived and seemed to there for 24 hours, was really helpful and went out of his way to be friendly and nice to us and other guests. Otherwise,the rooms were fine, and everything was as we would have expected. Breakfast was okay, nothing to write home about, but again, what you would expect for a buffet breakfast.
For a short break I would definitely recommend this Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoannaH Overall a good experience
We had a double bed and a bed settee in our room, as there was 4 of us there was nowhere really to sit. The room was nice though very clean, same in the bathroom. At breakfast there was no bacon because sausages had apparently been higher up on a survey and the croissant were a bit dried out. The staff were all nice. We would stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bilco Great all round treatment
Very warmly welcomed at hotel on arrival and everything explained by Stuart the duty receptionist. The room was spacious and thoroughly clean. The bed was very comfortable, and breakfasts
were plentiful and of good variety. The Park and Ride is 5 minutes drive away and great for getting into the city centre without taking the car. Staff always able to answer any questions and all were pleasant and helpful. The Toby next door did a good carvery in the evenings.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Khuku70 sleep quality was good, break fast was average, staff was helpful
For us as a tourist location was not to our liking, as all sight seeing
& facilities were not within our reach comfortably. Even your staff did not know the BUS NO &TIMINGS CORRECTLY..Your G.M gave us wronge Bus no & timings, If she was not knowing, she should have not given us the wronge no
Any way the storm was another factor, If we would have stayed nearer to Stn. we would have been more comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beelover Excellent hotel for a very reasonable price
We took our two grand children for a weekend away in York. they slept on the sofa bed in our room which made me feel more at ease. Although there was not a lot of room to move around we were only using the room in the evenings so it was sufficient.
The room and bathroom were spotless as was the rest of the hotel.
The breakfast was really good with a great choice of hot and cold food. We did have to wait for a table on our second morning and they ran out of sausages. The staff were really polite and helpful and worked really hard to keep everything topped up.
The hotel is situated only 5 minutes drive from the park and ride which makes it really convenient to visit York with out the hassle of parking. The days we went the parking was free and it was only £5.20 return for the four of us on the bus. The buses are every 20 minutes or so so you don't have to wait long and they drop you very close to all the attractions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Welcome Change
Had to rearrange my business stay from another chain to the Holiday Inn Express. The administration difficulty at the other chain led me to a very welcome change in amenities for a business stay after a long day. The gentleman at the desk was very helpful and friendly. Had a relaxed stay in a very clean and comfortable room, enjoying a coffee after moving in there. The breakfast was included:
The coffee machine produced a not so tasty cappuccion. Having our own chickens at home it would be great to get a scrambled egg with the same quality. - But that is a general thing in the hotel industry. Great stay at the Holiday Inn Express in York. Thanks!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Iyetomi Comfortable and good value for money.
This was good value for money. I wasn't driving but the taxi from the train station was only £10. I came with my son and the next day we went into town on the bus. the bus stop was only about 10 minutes walk away. You may need to check bus timetables ahead, though.
If I was driving I almost definitely would have missed my turning so signage could be better.
If I went to York again, I would stay here.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mactavish54 COLD ROOM
The day I arrived at this express it was cold, unfortunately the heating in the room didn't work, even the staff on duty tried and had to get maintenance to rectify the following day, the room was okay but as I stay in many hotels in a year this express in my opinion is average.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pollywolly Family room
Stayed with my 2 young kid and husband. On a Sunday night. Hotel seemed busy Great value for money. Staff very friendly,Room very clean, bed was comfortable. We had a family room kids had a pull out bed. Which my husband ended up sleeping on and not very comfortable for an adult. Free wifi in room for 2 devises which is great but couldn't connect one devise and other was cutting out. Breakfast is free (?) and was substantial for us. There was a good variety. It's next door to a carvery which was good for us as we didn't need to run around to find a kids friendly rested aunt. Would defiantly recommend this hotel. And will defiantly be back.

Have stayed here before so not surprised at facilities and excellent staff service. Room was spotless and bar service very friendly - only downside was the Gordons 2 shot gin bottle was not complimentary like it is on BA. Breakfast was excellent.
I didn't receive my elite bonus points voucher but probably my fault as I had booked 2 rooms and confused even myself when checking in

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sued52 Holiday Inn Express in York
The hotel is in a great position for visiting York as there is a Park and Ride just up the road, which is far better than driving into York and finding a place to park. We found the hotel comfortable and very clean and the staff were very pleasant. The only criticism we could mention is that the hotel room was a bit on the warm side as the weather was warm, and the beds had quite thick quilts which made for a rather uncomfortable night,. No problems on a cold night though I would guess. Breakfast was good and overall we enjoyed our stay.
