Holiday Inn Express Slough
Ranked #10 of 21 Hotels in Slough
Reviewed September 2, 2008

Stayed here for a total of four nights in July. A very new property, it stands alongside Slough railway station and so is fantastic for easy access to London and Windsor.

On site parking is free (a bonus) but very limited - arrive early to avoid having to park in the pay and display station car park adjacent.

The bedrooms and public areas are modern, bright and clean and well fitted but on all four mornings after my stay I ended up going out for breakfast as the selection & quality of food provided was pathetic - watery orange juice, cheap breads and stale fruit. Along with dirty glassware and disinterested staff it was by far and away the worst Express by Holiday Inn breakfast I've experienced. Their new manager called me in response to a comment card I filled in and assured me changes were in hand - but I'd still think twice about returning after my experience.

Stayed here for one night and had the following problems:

1/. The hotel being on a new development is not easy to find, asked some of the locals for directions, but nobody seemed to know where it was.

2/. They currently only have 26 parking spaces for the whole hotel! I was late and forced to park on the station car park next to the hotel for which you are charged. Not ideal by any means.

3/. If you are on the railway station side of the hotel and want to sleep forget it even with the windows shut. I eventually changed rooms to the other side because of this and the fact that the AC did not work.

The only plus point was the staff, who were outstanding.

To be honest unless you want to stay in Slough, forget this hotel.

Stayed here one night in Feb at a cost of £69 through Laterooms.
Free parking if you arrive early enough and Slough centre is a few hundred metres away, although the underpass looked like a place to avoid after dark.
The room was adequate, but don't expect a bath - showers are a way of economising on water.
You get a bland continental breakfast.
My misfortune was to get a room with twin beds, and the duvet barely reached the sides of the bed, so I kept waking up cold.
The main rail line runs directly along the back of the hotel, close eenough to touch the trains, so noise can be an issue if you like to have your bedroom window open.
I doubt I'll be going back.

1. Parking at this hotel is very bad, it has limited parking spaces IMPORTANT don't leave your car on the street nearby the hotel it is not a safe area to leave you car!, If you do not find a space at this hotel then park at the Slough Train station, north side of the train station this is next to the hotel and request to pay for the parking at the hotel using their phone, once you have parked there you can save yourself some money, the phone line is automated for the parking services, so you will be talking to a IVR machine.
2. I you have problems sleeping at night, I would not stay at this hotel, it is right next to the train station and you will hear trains passing by at night and there is an element of noise from platform announncements.
3. If you are expecting to have full english breakfast this hotel only offers light food, which is of a basic quality.
4. Some of the staff working at this hotel may not be very attentative to your requests, this is to do with there attitude and age, the hotel is marketed for a more younger crowd.
5.It has a bar at this hotel with simple meals but no bar snacks.
6.The rooms are clean and well presented but the location is only good for those who take or come by the train.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on 2nd February primarily to visit Twickenham. The room, for three adults, was clean and more than adequate for the overnight stay. We arrived early and although the room was not ready the staff were very obliging in storing our luggage. The receptionist went out of her way to download a local train time table covering the route to Twickenham enabling us to leave the car – and cry in our beer after the match! The hotel is located adjacent to Slough rail station – and a return ticket to Twickenham is £7.30. A change of trains is required at Windsor but the journey overall takes about 50 minutes. Breakfast was the normal basic cereal, fruit etc and was more than adequate. Again the following day the staff allowed us to leave our luggage whilst we returned by Train to Windsor ( ticket £2 return) to do the tourist trip.
All in all I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and we will use it again
