Dear Guest Thank you for posting your review. I am pleased that the hotel suited your needs. I am sorry about the breakfast situation. Unfortunately sometime large special interest parties can be selfish and only look after themselves. We are planing a refurbishment which will create more space in the buffet area.

They have got everything just about right for a short stay. Location is a bit out of the way for a city visit, however the staff, the rooms and the breakfast make up for any shortfall. Not luxury but spot on for short stays

Stayed for two nights as was working near Aristotle lane. Room was comfy, clean and warm. Bed was very comfortable and walking distance to some good food places. The Indian in the bowling/ cinema complex is a must try it was delicious! All in all a good stay and would stay again.

This is one of the older style Holiday Inn Express hotels and is exactly what you would expect. Rooms are a bit on the small side, especially when you have the sofa bed out, but are functional and clean. There is no air conditioning and the window does not open very far so could get rather hot in the summer!... More
