I have stayed at this express several times - booked 2 rooms for overnight stay. Having travelled extensively at Holiday Inns/Holiday Inns Express across the world I am very au fait with the
difference in the brands.
Generally I found stays at this HIE very good. Staff friendly and rooms clean, warm comfortable. But the breakfast well on this occasion - now as I said I am very aware of the difference between HI & HIE but when I commented to the Receptionist on the very poor quality of the egg - I was told condescendly 'This is not a Holiday Inn - and very different...' - he the went on to say 'I know (about the egg)' - Well my comment now is 'if you know - why don't you do something about it (the egg)! I am fully aware the breakfast choice is limited, that's fine - but the quality was very poor! not to mention the cheapest bread you could find, the miniscule croissant! No fresh fruit etc -
Will I return - I will have to think about it [Less]
