The Express Holiday Inns vary quite a lot in quality and service, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to find such a clean, fresh hotel with very friendly staff, "off the beaten track".
The rates are extremely affordable if you book online, and include breakfast.
Room - very clean and tidy. very spacious.
Breakfast - self-service full Irish breakfast and even the continental version (but didn't like the croissants too much - probably not a lot of people eat them, so they look a bit "oldish"). The Irish breakfast was excellent.
Service - the staff was really friendly and helpful. Parking is free and the lobby is really modern and a nice open space.
The hotel is really easy to find (we followed the directions on the booking print-out), a few miles off the motorway, and it is situated next to a discount retail park, plus there is a pub and a grill house, and a red panda restaurant (the restaurants stop serving food at 9PM on Saturdays).
It is an excellent location for touring the coast of Northern Ireland. Belfast is only a 20 min drive.
