One of the better Express I've stayed in. Very friendly staff and knowledgeable. This has been refurbished and is very pleasant now. Upgraded bed linen make for a good nights sleep. Bacon on breakfast which is not normal in the Express.

Great location for an overnight stop-off just off the M5 junction to break up a long journey. The room was clean, warm and spacious and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. There wasn't a lot of choice for the breakfast but what was there was good.

I recently stayed at a Crowne Plaza and had a less than perfect experience. The Holiday Inn Express is part of the same IHG chain so I expected roughly the same only less.
