“Decent Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Stayed here two nights recently along with two other bus loads about 60 in both groups. Its clean, tidy and the rooms appear were a good size. One Holiday Inn Express is much like another, but the staff were especially pleasant. The two breakfasts I had were fine and buffet style, not my thing, but then again I was not paying.
One negative is the difficult access to the car park for big buses. They have to reverse in and even then its very tight.
Its handy for the motorway and that was one of the reasons we used this particular hotel, however if I was staying down here on my own I would certainly consider this hotel.

Stayed at Holiday Inn Express Newport recently for 2 nights while on business in the area. It is clean and modern Hotel, reasonably priced. The rooms are decent sized, again clean and modern, comfortable bed and pillows, air-con, tea & coffee making facilities, iron available from reception,TV with plenty of channels, WiFi available in room through subscription only, but free in the lounge area. Modern clean toilet and shower room, usual essentials all provided. Breakfast Buffet was nice, and there is a good bar that serves a decent (but not extensive) menu, although the quality of the food is very good. I had the potato skins for starter which I recommend, and the steak with a side of onion rings for mains, which was really good too. Had a few nice pints from the bar and a decent Americano too. Any staff encountered were friendly and helpful. Overall, this is a good Hotel, would use it again if in the area and recommend it others.

Clean, tidy, good food... What more do you want? I will happily stay here again for business and a lot cheaper than some other hotels/restaurants in the area. Very close to the M4 so great for commuting to Bristol and Cardiff.

Rooms clean but basic, everything you need for an over night stay. Staff very helpful in sourcing food for tea and made me laugh on several occasions, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast ok. Better than the Holiday Inn in Newport.

Stayed during the Jan snow fest! First stay (and will def be back) whilst on business. As others have said the helpful and friendly staff really make this hotel a relaxing place for a stay.

Food (dinner and breakfast) was good and plentiful.

Rooms are as you'd expect from the chain, though was a little more noise from other rooms than ideal....but nothing to cause concern...if you are a light sleeper you may want to request and end of corridor or similar.

From the position near the motorway the rooms the other side are probably quietest (even numbered rooms).

My experience here typified a 'great stay'. It was comfortable, clean and quiet. Staff were extremely friendly (must be because they are Welsh). No traffic noise at all and had the best nights sleep in ages in a hotel.

The hotel receptionists were very friendly and helpful throughout my stay. The hotel appears to be pretty new and that is certainly shown by the clean decor and facilities in the room. My room had a nice big shower and the shower itself was great. Room size was about average for this sort of hotel but what does stand out is the newness of everything, cleanliness and the fact that everything works fine without any issues. The breakfast is buffet style with a big screen tv running in the restaurant - handy if you are on your own.
