We arrived at 1.30, an hour and a half before check in time, in the hope we might be allocated a room to change for a wedding. It was a Sunday, and the hotel was deserted. The receptionist refused to allow us to check in but suggested we use the disabled WC. We hurriedly changed, grim but better than struggling... More

Brilliant location for walking into city, also opposite cinema, restaurants etc. Rooms a little tired, few carpet marks and bathroom rust. Good value if you are just looking for somewhere to sleep rather than somewhere to relax. Good breakfast included.

Stayed here as a family two adults two children and must say from entering the building to leaving everything was great. The staff were very helpful and the family room one double bed and a sofa bed was very comfortable. The room was very clean bright and airy and the self service breakfast was excellent no complaints at all.

Excellent service at check in, very efficient and professional. Room - clean, functional, comfortable. Breakfast - cheap and cheerful, but for the price, what you would expect. No issues with it though. It was very busy but the staff worked hard to keep fresh food coming out and keep tables clean. Overall, very good for an overnight stop. Beware the... More

all good except the fight for brekky, only just enough seats, a little too confined serving area for my liking, good clean room easy check in, discounted parking at the multi story, but it still costs unfortunately

Have never stayed in a Holiday Inn Express before so was not sure what to expect. Check in was easy and speedy. The room appeared on the small side and the bathroom design was a little strange in that on opening the door the toilet was not visible, but behind the open door. Hooks for coats were non existent in... More

Stayed one night at HIE. Room was at noisy road. Complementary ear plugs, thank you Staff. Shower is excellent. Breakfast, I have had better, but ok. Guests of the hotel are offered free entrance to Fitness First Gym, 2 minutes from the hotel. As a training junkie, this will be the reason to book HIE for a next stay in... More

Dear Ben B, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am glad that you found your room clean and the beds comfortable. Being in such a great central location does mean that there can sometimes be noise from the road outside, which is why we supply all our rooms with complimentary ear plugs -... More

My company stayed here during the RIAT airshow which was a 40 minute drive. One of the best benefits of the hotel is the use of the gym which is a 5 minute walk. Breakfast was ok, but not outstanding. There is only 1 or 2 iron/ironing boards in the hotel and you have to wait until the previous person... More

What can you say about the Cheltenham branch of Holiday Inn Express? It follows the template of every other HIE and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. So what was good and what was bad about this particular branch if anything? The location is really very good. It’s across the road from the new “Brewery” complex which has a large... More

We chose this hotel because of the Holiday Inn reputation. This hotel however is a bit soulless and is only suitable for quick visits or if you don't require space to chill out. Rooms are small so is the lounge. Breakfast is included in the price but if you come late you get nothing.
