Spent one night at the Hoilday Inn Express at Minister. For a budget hotel it really had everthing that was needed and was of a quality that many more expensive hotels we have stayed in, have lacked. The room was a good size, had a separate couch. Air conditioning worked well (had to slide the switch to set it, with one of our keys, as the knob had broken, but once it was done it worked fine). Thermostatically controlled shower (and it was one that could be hand held- ie not a fixed shower.) The buffet breakfast was more than adequate. Room was clean, bed comfortable and the choice of a soft or firm pillow is very welcome. Staff at the check in and out were pleasant. We could have eaten in the hotel at night, but chose to walk to the Smugglers Retreat pub / restaurant about 100m away on the same site, (there is also a Premier Inn on the site), and had a very good pub meal. Ok the hotel is not a picturesque place to stay in during the day, being right on a road junction (but we heard no road noise), but as an overnight stop, business trip or a base for touring would be ideal. Would definitely return. It is not that far from the ferry ports and is a good stopover.
