Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

I recently stayed at a Crowne Plaza and had a less than perfect experience. The Holiday Inn Express is part of the same IHG chain so I expected roughly the same only less.

Easy to fine, good location, free parking. We were in one of the newly refurbished rooms - quiet, clean, tidy just what you want for a couple of nights stay, Staff have to multi-task from reception / bar / restaurant but do it very well, Limited evening food but there is a great pub just next door. Lovely breakfast -...

Staying down in Exeter seeing friends we stayed in the Holiday Inn Express. This was great it was ideally located just off the M5 motorway and next to the park and ride for Exeter. The bedrooms were clean and tidy with an excellent choice at breakfast.

Stayed here over the weekend, but I admit I've stayed before. The hotel is easy to reach about five minutes drive from the motorway (M5). Staff always have a warm welcome. Large car park out front. Rooms are always clean and well presented. You get a hairdryer, iron and ironing board in your room, tv and tea and coffee facilities....

Noisy air conditioner. Normal buffet breakfast, coffee machine. Staff friendly and helpful. There is pub (Barn Owl) across the parking lot, and a Subway sandwich bar in...
