This is the second time we've stayed at this Holiday Inn express and again it didn't disappoint. We are always welcomed warmly by the front desk staff. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. The breakfast area is basic and functional, with a selection of cereals, breads, pastries, fruit and scrambled eggs. The hotel is located conveniently just off of...

We stayed over for a one night stay decision was purely based on price.

At 01.00 am a horrible noise, like someone using a jet wash over my head. called the night clerk, he came, left to see, and in 10 minutes he had a new key(card) for another room. Then all fine. Lucky there was another room, and a good member of staff that acted fast. Rooms are a...

The staff were extremely polite and helpful throughout the stay. The room was very clean and quiet with a decent shower and TV. Free WiFi that actually worked properly, a large carpark that is free, next to places to eat and a garage makes it the ideal place to stay.

The room had many strange noises during the night to the extent it sounded haunted. The beds are very soft and uncomfortable, especially the pull out sofa bed. It was more like a...
