Visited Oxford to see the Play "It May Hurt a Bit" and stayed in Holiday Inn Express for 2 nights. Hotel located outside Oxford in a Science Park. The location is ideal, very quiet overlooking the football stadium with many parking spaces. It is fairly near Redbridge Park and Ride, although you need a car to get there, ticket for 24 hours is £2 and £4.50 return for 2 on Green Park and Ride bus. We were told to get the Red bus and the tickets were £6.60 although accepted by Green bus but we were told not the other way around. Every 10 minutes peak and 30 minutes off peak, 10 minutes to centre of Oxford, easy.
Rooms very comfortable bed very bouncy but did tend to roll into the middle, liked the fact that there was a choice of pillows which were identified as firm and soft . Shower excellent even though there we some leaks on connections and waste gurgled somewhat. Toilet had a small leak which was not an issue.
Breakfast was good with plenty of options and was always replenished, however the sausages were awful very cheap quality.
Staff very helpful.
A very enjoyable stay but let down slightly by some minor but annoying issues but we would stay there again.
