Drove here from a victorian hotel in Southwold which did not have air conditioning. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express during a heat wave so the air conditioning in the rooms and public areas was very welcome. Like a previous reviewer, I had trouble finding the hotel using my Sat Nav. I too found myself in a farmer's market.
My room overlooked the car park and had a lovely view of the Shell service station! The rooms were plain but very clean and comfortable. The en suite had extremely modern fittings with an enormous shower cubicle. All the staff were friendly and helpful particularly Tamara who advised us about local restaurants and provided directions.
The buffet breakfast was average but acceptable. In summary, a pleasant experience and I would definitely return when visiting the area in the future.
