I have stayed here twice before and it is the staff who make this hotel brilliant. We stayed 3 nights over New Year and everyone from front of house to room service were friendly and professional. Lovely room, no noise despite it being New Year, great location and parking nearby. Would stay here again, thanks.

Just a quick feedback on our recent stay: the room cleaning quality wasn't good: windows have a lot of hand stains from previous visitors, the room was quite dusty. After the room cleaning service unwashed dishes (glasses, spoons) were left in the room. We've used a number of Holiday Inn Express Hotels in the past, but this one wasn't good...
