This was is a very conveniently positioned hotel in Bath, close to attractions and local amenities. On checking in I had to correct the receptionist as she presented us with a bill for three people staying, even though I had amended our booking online from three people to two, and had been given an amended lower price. The room itself...

While we didn't expect a grand suite, when the fold out bed hits the TV cabinet you know you are in a small room. That being said, everything was neat, tidy, and clean. Breakfast was the usual fair, but we very crowded later in the morning.

This was my second visit to Holiday Inn Express in Bath so I knew what to expect. I was happy to pay £10 a night to park my car safely as there is no reasonable parking in Bath. I have not moved my car during my stay as all the important attractions are within easy walking distance for my party,...

Let's face it you know what you're getting with a Holiday Inn! The rooms are a good standard and the beds are comfortable. Could do a little more with breakfast and the extra £10 per night for parking felt like a bit of a sting - otherwise its just a 5 to 10 minute walk in to the town centre...

We stayed here for one night after a lovely day in the spa.. I requested an early check in (12pm) and a twin room and despite arriving at 1pm we couldn't check in. When we checked in later that night, there was a double bed and a sofa bed rather than two twin beds.. The sofa bed was AWFUL! Lumpy,...

Decent facilities and plenty of breakfast included in somewhat higher than expected price, which went up each night. Not in heart of Bath, but possible to walk in via short cut by supermarket - takes about 20 mins. Plenty of buses from outside to bus station. Due to location, I would expect the bar to be bigger and for them...

Stayed there for just 1 night on Monday this week and the noise from the air conditioning squeaking and rattling was too much, so we turned it off and opened a window - huge mistake as there's too much nose from the neighboring restaurants and bars and the main road running along side it.

We needed to stay near Bath centre and this was a basic hotel which met the purpose. All Bath hotels have rip-off prices and this is no exception. [£220 compared to £65 the night before for a proper Holiday Inn (with more facilities) in Swindon]

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay at the popular Holiday Inn Express Bath hotel and explore Bath's historic city centre on foot. Holiday Inn Express Bath's modern interior contrasts with its warm, honey-coloured Bath stone exterior. We're a short stroll from the historic city centre, where you can take your time with a relaxing session at Thermae Bath Spa. We are also close to Bath Spa train station for regular trains to London Paddington and Bristol Airport is a 40-minute drive. We're 10 minutes' drive from meetings at Bath's 3 Ministry of Defence offices and the University of Bath campus. Bath Spa University is only 5 minutes from Holiday Inn Express Bath by car. Avoid the traffic when visiting Helphire Group PLC and Amdocs, minutes away on Lower Bristol Road. The convenient Holiday Inn Express Bath is a 10-minute walk to the elegant Pump Room at the Roman Baths and the Grade I-listed Royal Crescent. Learn how the city inspired one of England's favorite writers at nearby Jane Austen Centre. Kids love mini-safaris at Longleat's rambling estate, a 30-minute drive away. Wake up to sausages, baked beans, scrambled eggs and more as part of the inclusive breakfast buffet and watch Bath come to life from the windows of the airy Great Room. Our friendly Front Desk team will give you information on day trips to Glastonbury and Stonehenge. 60 free onsite parking spaces are available and allocated on a first come first served basis. Wi-Fi is free. ... more   less
