Comfortable room and friendly staff. Breakfast was sufficient and all you can eat. Car parking had plenty of spaces and I felt safe leaving my car there whilst overseas. Shuttle bus was fairly frequent (every 30 minutes) but there is a fee to use. I would stay here again.

Stayed with a parking deal. Great to be able to leave car at hotel as we had a very early start. Check in was efficient and very friendly. The room was very clean and typical Holiday Inn Express. However the seating in the communal areas- bar, restaurant rev was disgusting. The fabric seats were covered in old stains. We couldn't find any clean enough to sit on so are over the road at the premier Inn.

I had cause to visit there on Thursday 11th November has I had to visit the covid pcr testing clinic for travel, when I went to the hotel reception I gave the receptionist my car registration number to avoid the parking penalty, however, just a few days later I get a parking penalty notice! I did email the hotel for their help with this but have had no reply. I am in the process of appealing to parking eye regarding the charge.

I recently spent 16 minutes in their not very well maintained car park, whilst I slowly decided whether to pop into Marks and Spencer’s, which is opposite, considered the traffic on the M25 changed my wallet over from Euros to Sterling that sort of thing.. I was admittedly feeling a bit tiered after a long flight and didn’t really think that I was parking, just stationary. For this hospitality Holiday Inn ‘s agent, Parkingeye charged me £100 or £60, which is more than they actually charge for staying in their hotel, which I think says a lot about what you can expect if you leave the comfort of your own car. I am amazed they can afford the repetitional damage, anyone who is ripped off like this will never touch their brand and will tell as many people as possible. Go to Premier Inn.

Compared to the Holiday Inn Express on M4 in Reading it is miles apart no wonder it only had 3.5 stars. First of all the rooms are bare basic but clean and do a job, the beds are very basic but at least clean however you can feel every spring. Although the rooms are fairly clean the rest of hotel isn’t and in a time when cleanliness is essential (Covid) makes this hotel even more unsaviour. Stains on all canvas seat, under the tables not been wiped for an eternity. My main advice is carry your own litre bottle of hand cleaner just to stop contracting something nasty. But even all that above isn’t a patch on the rudeness of the bar staff on evening of my stay 21/10/21. Now I appreciate English was his second language so probably not from England and he English billion times better than my Italian BUT even so this wasn’t a simple case of culture confusion - it was a utter contempt for the customer, aggressive and rude plus even going so far as to mock me to some other Italian customers at the bar. Being an IHG Rewards member and using the Holiday Inn Express chain a lot through out the year on business this is by far the worst experience I’ve encounter especially as it is very expensive. You still need to get a shuttle to the airport as few miles away so may as well stay elsewhere as they all run shuttles anyway. The only good things with this hotel was the Pizza which was excellent and the offering of parking while you are away. I generally alway write honest reviews to help traveller and even had one review read by 5.2 million people so hate being so negative but this ‘hotel’ is one of the worst - not the worst that honour goes to the building site of the Royal Antigua (read that review!!) - but is the rudest hotel I’ve stayed in EVER!
