“Nice stay - new TV would help”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

My wife and I have stayed before at the hotel. This time we were in an Executive room which was in good order although the bathroom was rather tired and the old CRT television would be better replaced by a flat screen. The bed was very comfortable and the staff helpful. We have previously taken breakfast in the hotel which was average but this time decided to look elsewhere. We discovered the Marina Bistro Cafe which is just across the hotel car park and overlooks the river. A nice friendly little place which served a very good and reasonably priced breakfast. The Pen and Parchment pub also serves good food. We will stay again at the Holiday Inn but eat out.

Room Tip: If you have problems walking ask for a room near the lifts.

Thank you for your feedback, however having read the comment and the description I do believe that this comment is meant for the Holiday Inn Stratford upon Avon, which I have brought to the attention of Trip Advisor.

I would however like to make you aware, that here at the Holiday Inn Express Warwick-Stratford-Upon-Avon we have just recently installed 32” LCD TV’s with built in Freeview in all our bedrooms. I hope that should you come to the Warwick/Stratford area again, this new feature will enhance your experience should you choose to stay with us.

in picking a good hotel, and although it was with a group of girlfriends for the weekend, I knew as soon as i walked through the door that it would be better than the Premier Inn, and it was.Free tea and coffee as soon as we walked through the door.

Bedroom immaculate, sheets crisp and white - actually thought we had no tea and coffee but found it in the cupboard under the t.v.

Had breakfast which was continental, the variety would and could cater for anyone. Staff helpful could not do enough.

Go ahead folks and enjoy.

I stayed here on my very first visit to UK recently and it turned out to be a true value for money! Sufficient parking space, clean rooms, very friendly and helpful staff and reasonably priced with breakfast inclusive. I got 6 hours of free WiFi Internet per day and that was sufficient for me. The restaurant looked good and was always packed in the evenings, though I never got the opportunity to eat there. Morning breakfast is typical of any Holiday Inn and sufficient enough.

We stayed for one night over a weekend to visit nearby Stratford Upon Avon and Leamington Spa. We paid 52 gbp for a twin room which was very comfotable and spotlessly clean. Booking in was very efficient and whilst we did not eat in the restaurant breakfast was included in the price and this was more a mix of breads, cereal, fruit and hot plate. There is also a restaurant pub attached and this was fine for a drink in a pub atmospere.

The hotel is right by the M40 but not noticeably noisy and meant it was very quick and easy to get to nearby attractions. One note of caution. If you park near the river in Stratford make sure you check the car park out carefully. The Council run part of the site but a company called LPS also operate and if you use the wrong machine they are waiting to give you a ticket -as we found out.

Holiday Inn Express is a mile or so out of town and a typical example of the brand - you know what you're going to get.

Warwick itself has nothing particularly compelling about it about from the obvious which is mostly excellent apart from most of the food outlets which are decidely average and it might be a good tip to break your visit and go out of the castle (get your hand stamped!) to get some decent food. There are several possible eateries.

The only odd thing about the HI Express is the weird car park system and charge - which all seems a bit unnecessary and clumbersome.

A typical Holiday Inn Express - does what you'd expect and nothing more. Handy for Warwick and the main roads/motorway and it was clean and tidy. Likewise, the room was neat and tidy. No restaurant in the hotel, but you can order a pizza. Otherwise you'll need to eat out but I wouldn't recommend the Porridge Pot carvery next door as the meal I had there was poor. It's convenient if you don't want to travel and I'm sure plenty of other people will find it ok.

Breakfast is included and was adequate.

Pulled in late at night after a 6 hour drive, no reservation made.

The staff were friendly & welcoming, and the room was comfortable, bright & spotlessly clean. The bed was super-comfortable.
Continental breakfast was more than adequate & both room and food were very reasonably priced.

Faultless.

Wish I passed that way more than once a year; will definitely go back.

Highly recommended.
