HIExpress J29 is a very convenient location. Right by J 29 and very importantly opposite the park and ride to the City centre which we used. Very clean and tidy hotel. Friendly staff. Good breakfast included in the cost of your room. Warm welcome by Jordan on front desk.

We stayed for one night and really enjoyed this hotel. The staff were polite, helpful and efficient. The room was what you expect from HIX. We had one problem in that the A/C did not work very well and was noisy. We arrived at the hotel very late, so did not mention to the staff

Booked to stay one night, convenient for travel arrangements and just 15-minutes from the city centre. Smiling, friendly staff undergoing training but no issue for me. This is the limited or budget offering from IHG but all I needed was here. Clean room, and small bar area /

Used this facility on a Friday evening on route to St James's Park football ground prior to Exeter FC playing Colchester United. 20 minutes from the ground and adjacent to Miller and Carter, although you may need to book a table if visiting M&C. Very clean and comfortable hotel

Dear Blackpool. Thank you for taking the time to leave us an online review of your recent stay with us. I am really pleased you found your stay to be clean and comfortable. So to your enjoyment of service from our staff. It is true the Miller and Carter restaurant next door can get busy at times and we completely agree that it is wise to book in advance. We do serve a small snack menu from 5pm-9pm in the hotel for future reference. Thank you again for your time. Alex M
