“Excellent stay....a few minor flaws.”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Superd building, spacious and clean and airy, rooms cannot be faulted. new and top notch modern decor, plenty of space etc. being hyper critical i would say that the beds are a bit soft and not king size. breakfast was not fantastic but we did emerge for the last half hour of it anyway. All in all a great place to stay with reasonable bar prices. excellent helpful staff on reception.

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent.

Hi Ralph

Glad that you found your stay excellent overall and that you were impressed by our decor and large spacious rooms. The Hotel was only opened last September and my Housekeeping team do a great job keeping it clean and pristine.

I will certainly take your feedback on breakfast and ensure we get it right for all our guests from start to finish.

Really pleased also that all the team looked after you during your stay and we will look forward to your next trip

Many thanks

Stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions now and always find the staff welcoming and a homely feel.

A lot of reviews criticize the northbound access, however, that issue surely lies with the local authority and not with the hotel? Aside from putting a massive light on the roof, I think the hotel is easy to find and just off a major roundabout.

Staff are always couteous and friendly, and put a lot of high end hotel staff to shame.

Food, well its not the best but there are plans afoot to improve these changes are welcomed. I sugest if you expect 5 star food either pop into Preston or stay in a 5 star hotel.

All in a great job done by management and the staff. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: The building does have metal stairs and these can be quite intrusive if you have a room next to them...

My family and I had a fantstic stay in your hotel, this weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff that checked us in (and out). My little boy was absolutely over the moon when our rooms were changed on arrival so that we could be closer to his grandparents' room, as the rooms were joined by a connecting door! This was the highlight of his stay - ours was the fabulous breakfast! Many thanks for a faultless stay; we will definitely be coming back.

Hi Fiona

A faultless stay! We have certainly set the bar high for your next stay with us. It was a pleasure to read your review and I am delighted to hear that we made your little boys stay extra special. With regard to the Breakfast we have tried hard to deliver a little more than guests normally expect from a Holiday Inn Express and its nice to see in your case this didn't go unnoticed, so many thanks. We all certainly look forward to welcoming you back to the Hotel in the not too distant future and once again many thanks for the kind review.

From check in to check out everyone was very pleasant and helpful, including printing out a local map and letting us check out late. The room was a good size and very clean, and the bed was comfortable. It was easy to find from the M6 and did everything we wanted. Will certainly use again.

Only on an overnight stop. Made most welcome by Hailey and the rest of the girls on duty. Refreshingly modern,clean and comfortable. Stayed in for evening meal, basic but good.
Enjoyed the variety and presentation of the breakfast. All in all worth returning to and would recommend.
