      The breakfast was the same for 3 days running and was of a poor standard, so I bought breakfast elsewhere on day 2 and 3! There was no allowance either for people with food allergies like gluten, so they would have found eating a whole breakfast impossible.

    • Family with children

      We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and found it to be very comfortable and clean. Although our room was right next to the lift, it was not too noisy.

      The continental breakfast was adequate, but could have been better.

      convenient location. room was comfortable and clean. breakfast facility was on site.

      television in room was impossible to watch - every time you touched a button on the remote it went back to the menu so it was very difficult to change channels also the sleep button did not work. Breakfast was disappointing - the toast was burnt, it was impossible to turn down the controls and there were no members of staff around to ask to change it.

      clean,comfortable and good for an overnight stay.very nice bar area and a good choice of food available for breakfast only a few minutes walk to a very good beefeater restaurant for an evening meal.

      Our room was huge which was nice and the staff were very helpful and polite. Breakfast was nice and plenty on offer.

      our room was meant to have a sofa bed but it didnt??? also our room was right opposite the lifts,which made it very noisy, we also had an adjoining door for the next room which meant we could hear the american family next door quite loudly. However my biggest grievance with this hotel was the drinks prices which were extortionate! one bottle of magners and one bottle of corona - £9.50! ridiculous, we left soon after and went elsewhere instead of sticking around in the bar as we'd planned. Also there was no bacon at the breakfast buffet which we found rather surprising!

      Great quality everything for the price of a cheap motel the best I've found yet! Will definitely use again.

      Newly-built budget accommodation well situated just off motorway. Rooms are clean and well appointed with tea/coffee making facilities. Beds are comfy and the linen is of good quality. There is a choice of firm or soft pillows, and there were good quality towels in the bathroom. Bathroom does not have a bath, shower only, and the bathroom door doubles up as a toilet door if necessary; ie: if you are showering and someone wants to use the toilet with privacy!

      Our booking included breakfast which was served from 6.30-10.30am. We came down to eat at 9.10 and there was no free tables so we waited.....and waited. Eventually we sat at a table with dirty plates from previous diners which had not been cleared away.I could see that other tables were also not too clean. There were also too few tables for the size of hotel, and lots of people wanting breakfast. There was only one member of staff visible, a girl with a trolley clearing plates/dirty crockery. She removed the dirty plates from our table but did not clean the table surface, which had spilled coffee and food residue on it.We decided to leave and went across the road to the Premier Inn, where we had an excellent breakfast for £7.99. An inclusive breakfast is only any good if its worth eating, and in my opinion Holiday Inn Express need to either raise their game considerably or stop serving the breakfasts.

      The Hotel is very well positioned for us ---as we had a family wedding about 30mins away.The m4 junction position suited us well. We had three rooms with extra cots in each. We were allowed access very early in the morningas our wedding was mid-day---we were very grateful for this. Staff were very accomodating in this respect as we ahd requested this by telephone earlier. Thank you for this as we managed to feed the four young children before going to the wedding. Rooms were spacious and very clean and modern ---child friendly with the exception of the position of the kettle --which we immediately made safe. Beds very comfortable and luxury towels made it feel like a five -star facility. I highly recommend anyone staying at this hotel. Thank you Holiday Inn Express for a fabulous breakfast --what a feast we all had as we did not expect this when reading the breif " buffett" breakfast. What a fantastic deal .

      Only the position of the kettle in our three rooms -----we had 4 active children and after we had boiled the kettle --moved it to a safe place -----all adults would want to make this aspect safe for their little ones--- thats the only negative aspect of the rooms.

      I requested a twin bedded room but it was a double bed with an uncomfortable fold out.Honesty is always best!!Huge que for breakfast - twenty people in the que! Travelling with my grown up son I specifically did not book a standard double as you state below.If you do a survey you must take the answers or it is meaningless.not so goo I will probably use the Premier Inn across the road next time.

      Their willingness to change my room for a quieter one. Desk staff were excellent.

      Breakfast was awful. Lukewarm scrambled eggs swimming in liquid, no proper bread, just slices for toast. No fridge. Air con right above the bed so unusable because of blasts of cold air.Expect better for the price I paid.
