The staff were very friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable and, most importantly, quiet. Wifi was fast and breakfast wasn't stingy. But the real standout was the way the staff went above and beyond for my son. Colouring books at the front desk, suggestions for family friendly dining and posting back his treasured toy cat which wasn't discovered missing until...

I stayed at this hotel last December on 18th and 19th 2015. From the moment I entered reception I was made to feel welcome. The room I was allocated was a very reasonable size with a double bed even though I booked as a single traveller. The bed was very comfortable And I had a very good nights sleep. My...

This is your typical Holiday Inn Express, clean and comfortable. Staff were good, friendly and organised. Wifi was free and good quality. Plenty of on site, free parking. Hotel is in a good location close to M5 but not next to it so quiet overnight. There is a pub next door for food and refreshment. Good value all round.

It's ok. It's clean and modern. It's easy to get to, just off the motorway. There's a decent modern pub next door for a good evening meal, and I certainly wasn't the only person eating on my own. This time, I was in a room right over the main entrance and next to the lift but it wasn't noisy. But...
