The room was clean and tidy on arrival as we have come to expect from a Holiday Inn hotel. The reception staff was service-minded. The breakfast was OK enough, but if you are someone who like changes you may consider other places at Gunwharf Quays as the hot food on the buffet every morning was sausage, beans and scrambled eggs....

We drove straight in to a massive car park right next to the Holiday Inn Express on Gunwharf Quays. Really easy access to the hotel. The staff were excellent throughout. Reception first class, room ladies very efficient and breakfast staff, although pushed to their limits were very pleasant and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean with lovely views over... More

It's very convenient if you're visiting Gunwharf Quay or the Historic Royal Dockyard. You park in the main Gunwharf Quay car park (discounted parking if you take your ticket to the hotel reception), and just walk through the shopping area to the hotel. All the staff are friendly and the rooms are modern with large showers in the bathrooms. Wifi... More

This is a fairly new Holiday Inn and there is nothing out of the ordinary - the rooms are exactly what you would expect with the added bonus that the carpets and finishing are not at all worn. what you really want to achieve here is a room on the top floor (the 3rd floor) that is looking down on...

This is a good hotel in a good location. Has a reasonable bar, adequate (not special) buffet breakfast, and friendly / helpful staff. Not the cheapest. Good free parking, if slightly confusing to find route between parking and hotel. There is a very expansive range of restaurants very very near

Situated on Gunwharf in the middle of the shopping and restaurant area, within walking distance of many attractions, with endless secure parking adjacent this hotel couldn't be better located.
