First impressions were of a smart, clean and modern hotel, but then on arrival I received a fairly cold welcome from the two young women at the desk. When I asked to add my IHG points to my account I was told they refuse to as my room was booked through a company, and not direct

Dear ShootTheMessenger Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review. I can assure you that this is not our usual standard as a hotel and our guests’ experience is very important to us. With regards to your comment surrounding your rewards club membership, unfortunately that is our current policy as it is an incentive to book though us and not through third party websites. As we are a Holiday Inn Express, we have a strict brand standard that is dictated to us by our head office thus is the same all over the world. This includes things such as the tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms, the choice of both soft and hard pillows and the food we serve for breakfast. With regards to your comments about the noise, due to our city centre location we are situated in a location that is both easy to access coming into the city and within walking distance of the shops and city centre. Deliveries to the hotel are kept to after 7am so that our guest can enjoy a good night’s sleep. All your comments about your room have been noted and will be passed on the correct members of our team. We are always looking for ways to improve our guests’ experience and so all of your comments have been extremely helpful. At breakfast time there is a choice of hot drinks from the machines or you can pay for £1.50 to have hot drinks from the bar. The coffee in both machines is the same brand just in different formats. The coffee machines in the breakfast room are filled with granulated coffee whereas the coffee at the bar is filled with the coffee beans and is just prepared in a different way. As with any Holiday Inn Express, every morning we serve a complimentary, continentally based breakfast to all of our guests. This breakfast includes an additional four hot option such as Cumberland sausages, bacon, baked beans and scrambled eggs made from real eggs. We hope you will choose to stay with us again so that we can turn your negative experience into a positive one. If so we very much look forward to welcoming you to the hotel again soon. Kind regards Georgie | Guest Service Assistant

Friendly staff. Great value for money. Nice comfortable, clean room. The new improved breakfast is much better than it was when we stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a couple of years ago. We'll definitely stay again on our next visit to Lincoln
