Stayed here as a base for Bath and Longleat. The staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. Room is very clean as is the bathroom. The rooms are cleaned every day (stayed there for 2 nights). The beds are uncomfortable but think any bed that's not your own is uncomfortable. The breakfast was very disappointing. Selection was ok but the quality...

Stayed here for two nights with teenage daughter on girly adventure. Hotel was clean and tidy, beds comfy. We slept really well. My girl said she would have liked bacon for her breakfast which is basic, but free. Free wifi was very useful. Thanks Holiday Inn. We will definitely stay again.

There is a car park onsite ... but entrance location is difficult to find (especially at night). The room was clean and adequate ... but wifi insufficient. The elevator was small and...

Holiday Inn Express, as I have said before, is a dependable brand. Yet I would have rated this hotel as only average because, well, it was unexceptional. Its location is central-ish to Bath - there are other hotels closer to the centre. It has a car park, enough, I am told, for 60 cars, but you have to pay an...

This Holiday Inn lives up to expectations, staff are bright and helpful (if a little thin on the ground when checking in) and the public areas clean and smart but lacking atmosphere.

Pros – Clean comfortable (although very small) rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Fairly close to the main town centre (about a 15 min walk). Lots of parking (but not free). Free internet. Cons – Overlooking a cemetery. Bit of a walk to the main town area but manageable. Feeding frenzy at the free breakfast which is mediocre at best but...

For me, the best thing about staying at Holiday Inn is the reliability factor - you always know what you'll get. This is why we again chose H.I.when in Bath. The tariff I must say was a bit more than expected: £129 plus another £10 to park the car, but it is the top of the season I told myself...

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
