This hotel exceeded my expectations in every way. We had a really early flight and I emailed the hotel in advance to see if it was possible to store our bags on arrival. They said that they would see if we could have the room earlier than the 2pm check in but they couldn't promise it. We arrived at the... More

We stayed only 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Express, but it was a wonderful stay. Check-in/check-out: we had booked the room via an internet set. Both check-in and check-out went smoothly and efficiently. Staff: Courteous – not merely the formal politeness, but really nice. Rooms: quite spacious and very clean; sufficient sockets to charge cell phones etc. Coffee/tea making... More

great location, with car park next door, very reasonable and free 5pm until 8am which is very unusual for a city centre car park, Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms spotless and quiet, was on the second floor facing the square. Plenty of eating places close at hand, Breakfast was good and included in the reasonably priced room rate

We arrived before the check-in time and were allowed to leave a couple of bags with them, for free, until we came back later. There is a £2.50 charge to leave your bags after check-out, but it's free to leave them before check-in. The reception desk staff were very polite and our room was very clean and neat. Bed was...
