On arrival we noticed free parking which we had to fill in a form at the front desk for. Check-in staff were nice and informative. We were offered a choice of if we wanted the two rooms close together and if the first floor was ok for us which I thought was nice. On arrival to the room I thought... More

Firstly, we arrived fairly late in the evening (10:30 ish) with a 9 month old baby and all of the various associated bags and cases needed for 2 adults and a baby in tow. We were at the front desk with a shabby printed out sign that informed us that the lift was out of order and an engineer had... More

Hotel was good, even had a microwave- which we didn't get a chance to use. Breakfast was excellent, really enjoyed it. Check in lady was very helpful although couldn't say the same about the lady who gave me extra tea bags when I went down in the evening. All in all, a good hotel. Would like to visit again.

We stayed here for one night while visiting friends. It's a standard Holiday Inn Express but doesn't yet have the improved new style rooms and it's generally looking like a it's been a while since it was refurbished. However it was good value at £42 and the staff were excellent.

A typical Holiday Inn Express, this one is handy for the "Glow Bluewater". I stayed for 3 nights. The menu food is average as is the breakfast but they import great pizzas even into the early hours. The staff here are good and give good service. The bar is open very late which is great news when you get back... More

We were looking at staying overnight ready to travel over the river Thames the following day and onwards up north. We looked at several places, some of which did not include breakfast in the price and parking was also at an additional charge. We chose this hotel as it included both breakfast and free parking. The hotel was spotlessly clean.... More

Clean room, comfortable bed, great shower and an excellent breakfast. Also had the bonus of free WiFi. The evening meal was average but entirely adequate. Overall a great overnight stay, I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this hotel to friends.

Had a fantastic stay at this branch. I stay with work several times a year and it's always very good. The staff are great, lots of car parking spaces and breakfast is free. All in all would recommend this hotel for a place to stay. Will definitely stay when in the area again.
