Bar was a bit pricey but tbh what hotel bar isn't? Breakfast was well set out and quite a bit of choice. Would... More

Stayed here as had early flight. Very clean room with everything needed. Expected to hear flight noise but didn't. Self service breakfast from 4am was really well set out with plenty of choices. Would definitely use again if in similar situation.

Thoroughly enjoyed my one night stay here, typical Holiday Inn Express layout and facilities, room immaculately clean with functional furniture, facilities and good wifi. Dinner menu is (as normal for this brand) limited, but the reception and bar service is above average. A friendly functional hotel.

Fairly basic accomadation, friendly staff, tried to be helpful over the non working air con , offered to change our room, but as we were just going to bed for a 4 am start, it wasn't what we needed at that point. Food very ordinary and expensive. The only positive was that we were close to the airport.

As an ICG member I use Holiday Inn Express a lot because you tend to get the same quality, however I have to say this place came up short. The staff on reception were fine and helpful and no issue whatsoever, it was just the room was grotty and felt like the only thing housekeeping had done was remake the... More

We booked this hotel the night prior to our summer holiday and included in the package was airport parking. Parking alone would have cost more than the deal we got. Upon arrival the staff were extremely courteous despite having to man the reception, bar and restaurant on a limited number of staff. The room was clean and perfect for what... More
