Efficient, polite and helpful staff. But family room very, very cramped. Children complained that their Sofa bed was extremely uncomfortable. I tested mattress with my hand and could feel every spring! and bed would not go flat. My wife mentioned this to reception, they said that they would pass on comment to "Housekeeping" £160.00 for family room tolerable, bed not!... More

Stayed one night, two rooms. Reasonable rate compared with other hotels in the area and not too far to walk to the main sites. Quick check in, clean room with everything we needed for a nights stay. Did have to ask for bed linen for the sofa bed but it arrived promptly. Breakfast included in the rate eggs, sausage beans,... More

This Holiday Inn lives up to expectations, staff are bright and helpful (if a little thin on the ground when checking in) and the public areas clean and smart but lacking atmosphere. Breakfast is good and includes some hot food. Bedrooms are fine and well equipped but starting to look shabby, a bit of peeling wallpaper here and there and... More

Pros – Clean comfortable (although very small) rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Fairly close to the main town centre (about a 15 min walk). Lots of parking (but not free). Free internet. Cons – Overlooking a cemetery. Bit of a walk to the main town area but manageable. Feeding frenzy at the free breakfast which is mediocre at best but... More

For me, the best thing about staying at Holiday Inn is the reliability factor - you always know what you'll get. This is why we again chose H.I.when in Bath. The tariff I must say was a bit more than expected: £129 plus another £10 to park the car, but it is the top of the season I told myself... More

Stayed one night on the way to Bristol. Stayed in HI's before but this one reminded me more of Days Inn or Super 8 in the US. The elevator (lift) went out while I was there (not much fun when you are on the 4th floor) and service was sometimes good (calling taxi, checking in) and sometimes awful (went down... More

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights. There is on site parking which is great, but it is not for free. Our first morning we were woken up by the fire alarm at 7:30am as someone burnt toast in the kitchen. The fiasco was not handled well by staff as people were confused as to what they... More

This hotel was not too bad. There is a car park which is not free but breakfast was included and was a pretty good buffet style arrangement. Staff were not particularly helpful to be honest, customers seemed to be viewed as pests not worthy of anything but the briefest attention but there was nothing particularly unpleasant in this. Room was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay at the popular Holiday Inn Express Bath hotel and explore Bath's historic city centre on foot. Holiday Inn Express Bath's modern interior contrasts with its warm, honey-coloured Bath stone exterior. We're a short stroll from the historic city centre, where you can take your time with a relaxing session at Thermae Bath Spa. We are also close to Bath Spa train station for regular trains to London Paddington and Bristol Airport is a 40-minute drive. We're 10 minutes' drive from meetings at Bath's 3 Ministry of Defence offices and the University of Bath campus. Bath Spa University is only 5 minutes from Holiday Inn Express Bath by car. Avoid the traffic when visiting Helphire Group PLC and Amdocs, minutes away on Lower Bristol Road. The convenient Holiday Inn Express Bath is a 10-minute walk to the elegant Pump Room at the Roman Baths and the Grade I-listed Royal Crescent. Learn how the city inspired one of England's favorite writers at nearby Jane Austen Centre. Kids love mini-safaris at Longleat's rambling estate, a 30-minute drive away. Wake up to sausages, baked beans, scrambled eggs and more as part of the free breakfast buffet and watch Bath come to life from the windows of the airy Great Room. Our friendly Front Desk team will give you information on day trips to Glastonbury and Stonehenge. 60 onsite parking spaces are available at a charge and allocated on a first come first served basis. Wi-Fi is free for guests who book direct with the hotel. ... more   less
