Hotel is well located in front of Temple Meads train station. The rooms are good and the bed is comfortable. Breakfast is included and meets expectations. Almost next to the hotel you can find a nice italian restaurant with reasonable prices.

Stayed for three nights recently and honestly couldn't fault it. Beds were extremely comfy so had excellent nights sleep. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Location was great and so close to temple meads train station. The breakfast was lovely sausages, scrambled egg and beans plus continental! Would definitely stay here again!

I stayed here with my 2 friends for a weekend in May. Great location. Just a short walk from the harbour, old town and shopping area. Nice and clean with a powerful hot shower. Breakfast was included in our room rate which was nice. But no bacon. Overall, a good place to stay.

We arrived for one night prior to my brother leaving for Heathrow airport. On arrival our room was allocated as a double although we had requested a twin through Booking.com, rang down to reception and explained situation and was immediately allocated a superior room with twin beds, which were very comfortable. No noise in hotel and room on 7th floor... More

Stayed here for one night and it was fine. On arrival at the hotel you park around the back in some temporary parking spaces to enable you to check in and get a code to access one of the 20 parking spaces in the car park behind the hotel. If this is full there is an NCP car park close... More

The chain is showing its age; as other reviewers have said, in a damp climate, carpeting is a disaster, and so the hotel has a slight smell of mold, and the exterior is dated modern. The location is great if you want to stay by the train station, but you better be in good shape if you want to visit... More

6 mature ladies booked 3 twin rooms at the Holiday Inn Express for a one night shopping trip. Our room was a bit smelly (like drains) when we arrived, but we went out for the evening and hoped it would be better when we got back. It wasn't any better but the young man on reception dealt with our request... More
