I've stayed with Holiday Inn Express a few times and even this one 4 years ago. I would really not recommended getting a room near the ground floor (5 and up) as you can really hear the music of the nearby clubs at night. The bed had almost no cushion left and felt like we were sleeping on springs and... More

The rooms on the top floor were unbearably warm. We thought that because they had air con that it would cool down so we left it on before going out for the evening. When we came back it was still boiling. We tried to adjust the settings but the air con was worse than useless. It was late at this... More

Booked in advance the price was very reasonable. Hotel is basic but clean and equipped with all the usual amenities. Breakfast was a... More

My partner booked this as a surprise holiday treat. We regularly visit Holiday Inns as well as other prominent hotels in our travels around UK and are normally quite happy with what we find. On arrival Alisha (the receptionist) was extremely disinterested to the point of rudeness informing me there wasn't a double room available, only a twin room despite... More

By Holiday Inn and IHG standards, not great by a long way. Hard to find, very little signage. The car park is a good distance from the hotel. It might be 5mins 'brisk' walk, but not with luggage etc crossing several roads. The guy who greated me at the info desk was pleasant. But the rest of the staff either... More

Every member of hotel staff is lovely and helpful. Our request for a room overlooking Oxford Rd station was met positively. The rooms are very nice. However there are issues. No soap in the room - it hadn't been replenished. The aircon in the room doesn't work so the room was stuffy. A fan was given but this is not... More

The hotel is right next door to Manchester Oxford Road train station. Check in is downstairs when you enter the building. Check in was fine, but the first issue arose when we went for the lift, only one was working. This did cause a few problems in our stay as the lift was full at peak times. The room we... More

Like any Holiday Inn Express, you're not expecting it to blow your socks off but at the bare minimum you expect something satisfactory. I mistakenly booked this hotel for it's central location and regretted it as soon as we got there. The room had stains on the walls, the toilet leaked and the room was so cold that we had... More
