We had an early flight so booked this hotel and it was a lovely nights stay. Reception lady that checked us in was lovely and gave us all the info we needed to know. Room was spotless, beds really comfy, just what we needed for a good nights sleep before our early flight. We chilled out in the bar, having... More

I'm usually here for business and I like this hotel a lot! It's in a good location but quite, the building is new and services very good! Free wifi and "forgotten something" are just minimums nowadays ;) The staff is professional and happy to help at anytime.

The Holiday Inn Express is what it sets out to be. An excellent Budget hotel. It is very clean and comfortable. The rooms are large and the bed very comfortable. It is very close to the airport but we did not hear any noise from the planes. Breakfast was excellent, a self service buffet with cereals, fruit, cooked breakfast toast... More

Room on the ground floor to the back of the hotel was very quiet at the end of the corridor. Very clean. Good stay, park and fly offer through external booking agency. beware of the toaster at breakfast, it incinerates the bread and cannot seem to be turned down.

Clean, friendly hotel which was a quick stop over on the way to an early flight the next morning. Location excellent and it was very good value as we had two rooms and a car park booking for under £120.

We stayed here in February 2015, we had a early flight to Ireland in the morning, so we decided to stay overnight to make my life easier. I was very impressed with this room, It was very clean, warm and comfy. Shame there was only 2 cups left out, but all I had to do was ask for another cup.... More

We stayed for one night on the way to Bath and the location of the hotel was perfect for us, right next to the A1 and almost next door to the services. We paid £32 for the night (plus £4 for parking) which is a fantastic deal by any standards and we would have happily paid more. The staff were... More

Was looking to book the car in at one of the Airport car parks for a for a week while we went to Tenerife. Was quoted approx. £35 for the car park, then saw this hotel advertised at £59 for the night before the flight (with breakfast!) and the car parked for a fortnight. Couldn't go wrong.

The room was clean and tidy with a small tv with built in free view. The room was basic but had everything you needed. Staff were helpful and accommodating. The bar is open until late and breakfast os served early but finishes quote early also. Overall a good stay and would definitely stay again.
