We have just spent a weekend at Holiday Inn Express where the staff were very friendly and helpful, The room was clean and comfortable bed the one downside was it was very warm and when the window was left open we were woken early by the seagull dawn chorus, The continental breakfast had a wide choice.

Thanks very much for your feedback Ronski1959, delighted you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the efforts of the staff. We're hoping to have air conditioning installed in the not-too-distant future so this will help with the noise from the local bird life, thankfully it's only for a short few weeks while they are nesting that it becomes an issue.

The hotel is in a great location for the city centre. There is a handful of free parking spaces but if full there is a reasonable priced multi storey at the end of the road. The staff were lovely and the hotel was clean. We were let down by the beds, they seemed very small and were quite old so... More

I've stayed here a couple of times on business. Hard to find a fault. It's not going to a 5 star hotel but for the price you get a lot. Every room I've stayed in has been clean and well presented.

Spent a recent overnight stay at this city center hotel. The room allocated was very clean and comfortable. The staff were excellent and the breakfast provided was first class. Worth noting that the breakfast included cooked bacon and hard cheese portions which one does not normally receive at any other Holiday Inn Express locations. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay...

It is a nice and convenient budget hotel which situated in the city centre. You got plenty of choice for dining, shopping and local sightseeing at footsteps. As I booked my holiday with promotion price, it is very money worthwhile. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast is fantastic.

Nice hotel ideally located for either business or pleasure, very helpful staff and comfortable clean rooms. Only downside with Holiday Inn express is lack of evening meal facility but breakfast is very good. The centre of town location gives excellent access to local restaurants and a very good fish and chip shop 100 yards down the road.
