“Better then expected!”
Reviewed August 6, 2008

Reception staff excellent. Made a great effort to talk us through everything. Much better then some 4 + 5 star hotels we had stayed in. Room nice, clean and functional. Great shower. Nice Beds. Good location for Junction One shopping centre, but our sat nav for the postal code directed us about 200 metres away (as the crow flies!), from the hotel, but about a 1-2 mile drive. We should have just put in our destination as Junction One.
Full cooked Irish breakfast, which was great. Also well stocked.
Price was EUR69 for the room, for a family of 4. Included breakfast.

There wasn't a hotel room to be had in Belfast so booked into this express for two nights because it was convenient for the airport and easy access into Belfast.
We have used many Holiday Inns but never an Express. I like my cooked breakfast!
The hotel is situated by a large retail park with a number of restaurants. Very handy.
Staff were extremely friendly and effecient. Room was fine but lack of drawer and hanging space. Plenty of parking.
Now for the surprise. They did, as well as the usual continental breakfast, a full cooked Irish breakfast!! Imagine my delight.
And good it was. So I guess we could be staying there again.
Limited food menu but well cooked and nicely presented.
All in all a good place to stay.

Usual Holiday Inn standard, clean, functional rooms with simple bar area and help yourself breakfast. Located just of motorway about 30 mins from Belfast so easy to find and convenient for gettign about. Large shopping complex next door bit nothing else in the area apart from a pub over the road. Meals there were very good and reasonable.

Breakfast in the hotel included cooked items, fruit, yogurt, cerels etc. and nicely presented.

Only complaint being the cost of the internet connection here £5.99 per hour or £11.99 per day.

Would stay here again - very quiet

Not the best Express I have to stay in. The staff try and help as much as they can, the breakfasts are the usual on offer from this hotel group, the rooms are clean however the walls are nigh on paper thin so pity help you if your neighbours are noisy! What lets this Express down from a lot of others, is the fact you have to pay a hefty charge if you want wi-fi access - come on is it really worth spending £10 for twenty four hour wi-fi access?

A fairly new hotel very near the large outlet shopping centre and a couple of restaurants. Plenty of car parking. Very helpful and friendly staff. Unlike most HI Express hotels the free breakfast includes a few cooked items and the hotel also serves a range of bar snacks at lunchtime and in the evening. Clean rooms, comfortable bed and reasonably quiet location. Recommended.

Much better than I expected. NB Express Inns don't have baths. Clean functional room with everything. I really enjoyed dinner at the Japanese restaurant across the way. Its on the edge of shopping centre so there are no glamorous surroundings. Handy for the airport. Nice staff. Plastic breakfast with everything out of packets plus hot eggs, bacon toast etc
