“Good Value Budget Hotel”

Friendly staff; clean rooms; easy check in, Wi-Fi included; free newspaper and free breakfast I stayed here for 2 months during the week. The restaurant food was not the cheapest but there are other places to eat.

Great value for money as we got a great price for booking late. The only downside were the noisy people at 2 a.m. that didn't seem to care about anyone that was asleep, but that is not the fault of the hotel.

Clean, comfortable and convenient.

The room was warm and spotless. It had all of the bits you would expect. Absolutely fine......just don't expect fast wifi.

The breakfast advertised on the web shows an English breakfast of sausage, scrambled egg and beans...and that's exactly what you get. Where's the bacon! There was toast and pastries though.

Business trip with my colleague, who booked this hotel by accident as he doesn't know what he is doing. Very clean and rooms of a good standard. My only criticism was the food. It was microwaved and convenience food.
Apart from that it was value for money.

Had checked out of a 4* place due to appalling standards and was a bit unsure what to expect at the Holiday Inn Express. No need, a lovely welcome from very helpful receptionists. Requested breakfast at 05:15, no problems, although hot food not served until 06:00. Good choice of cereals, toast, croissants, hot drinks available. Lovely ground floor room. No bath, only a shower, which was lovely. Room perfectly adequate and comfy bed. Had a problem with the heating but the receptionst brought a portable heater straight away and by way of apology for inconvenience, was given a free meal and drink in the evening which was a very kind gesture. All staff very pleasant and felt a nice, small, welcoming and even 'homely' hotel. No hesitation in recommending and staying again in the future. 10mins. by car to Lakeside and I had a view of the Q.E.2 bridge. Thanks to everybody there!
