I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for a couple of nights for a conference. It is obviously very new and it felt like the top end of the chain's standards with big well designed rooms, large walk in showers, wide screen TVs etc. You can't open windows so just as well the air-con is reasonably quiet. However, I didn't think the bed was very comfortable and found the mattress very springy with a rather cheap feel to it. My first night was disturbed by an over working cistern but that was put right the next day. Staff are efficient though not warmly welcoming or overly helpful so it does have a very corporate feel and you could be anywhere in the UK. Breakfast offered a surprisingly good range though the later you were the more likely the food looked a bit dried up - but there were huge bowls of fruit available and a good range of teas etc. The hotel was a closer to the centre than I had first thought - certainly walking distance - but taxis and other transport options were plentiful.
