We stayed here as we left it too late to get anywhere in blackpool after seeing the illuminations. The hotel is brand new, very clean and in exchange for a few details to join their points club we received a complimentary drink!

Room basic but excellent. The shower was lovely.

Breakfast the next day can only be described a chaotic! Not the best breakfast I have had but it was free! Staff were all excellent, would definitely stay in an express again if this is the standard to expect.

Chose this hotel rather than a hotel in Blackpool for a couple of reasons. Blackpools reputation for hen/stag nights (we was stopping on a Saturday night), cost and location.

OK the hotel isn't in Blackpool, but it's only 20 minutes away with very easy motorway access.

The hotel is shiny new and very very comfortable.

Fantastic staff, free car parking and fantastic free breakfast.

Only complaint is that the rooms are a fraction too cold, making it just uncomfortable to stay in the room. Advised by the front desk that there was nothing they could do, as the temperature is controlled globally, and could only offer additional bedding.

It's a Holiday Inn Express, so don't expect too much, but it is definitely better than the average.

It's obviously new; all public areas are spacious, bright and modern. The room was similarly nice and modern, and rather large for a HIX. The staff seemed quite jolly and switched-on, which makes a nice change. The breakfast buffet had a lot of hot options (for a HIX), although maybe lacked in fresh fruit.
There were a couple of quite minor problems (e.g. 1 sachet of decaf!), but I can't think of anywhere better for a quick stay on the M6 (for the price I paid). it's just off J29, easy to find, plenty of car parking space, and soundproofing is very good.

Hi Tony,

May I thank you for your review of our Hotel, I see from your profile we the first property to receive 5 out of 5 from yourself so that is particularly pleasing and we are glad you have found a good place to stay near the M6. However as we are always seeking to improve what we offer I will certainly take note of your comments with regard to fruit on the Breakfast buffet & sachets of decaff. Tony, once again many thanks for taking the time to write such a constructive review and we look forward to seeing you back at the Hotel in the not to distant future.

Many Thanks
Bruce Rowell

Loved this holiday inn, its new and has lovely clean bathrooms. Nice pleasant place to stay, free car parking and usual breakfast provided. I would definitely go back. The reception team were very friendly and helpful. My only recommendation would be a heater in the bathroom - it was a bit chilly when getting out of the shower!

Stayed here 16/11/12 when going to Manchester . Arrived later 11pm got warm welcome from girl at reception lovely bright clean hotel. Room was on first floor looking towards motorway but this was one of the quietest hotels i have ever stayed at even had window open and never heard any traffic even though 2 mins from motorway, Large room was fresh and warm... lovely shower only quip i would have had was found shower tray a bit slippy..but apart from that nothing else. Breakfast was lovely everything clean and food hot ..nice surroundings...all in all 10/10 if ur looking for overnight motorway stop or 30 mins into Manchester...recommend staying here and will return in future.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 122 which was overlooking front of hotel nice big room....think any would be nice.
