This hotel was somewhat hard for me to find. I was tired, and walking from the train station, and kept following my gps but it kept landing me in front of the casino. I have no freakin clue why, so if you get lost, look for Akbars. And look for city quadrant (apartments). There's also a chippy close by that...

Stayed here for a week while working in Long Benton. Basic clean tidy rooms. Liked the shower. Decent breakfast but a bit limited in choice. Friendly staff. The only down side was the noise from the main road there's a hospital nearby and I was woken a few times throughout my stay with the sound of sirens. The best thing...

Very friendly and professional staff . Breakfast is a bonus but a little limited in choice. Hotel room a little small but comfortable. Postal code to hotel is not accurate and if driving - it may take you around the houses . So you may have to call them for directions as the entrance to the hotel lies within a...

Very comfortable stay with friendly and accommodating staff. The location of the hotel is the main reason I picked it as it was in the city centre, near local bars and restaurants - and for the price of the room it was perfect. The hotel room itself was modern, newly refurbished, clean with TV facilities, towels and a hairdryer. The...

I'm not sure what your expectations are coming to a Holiday Inn, but even so you'd expect your hotel room to be cleaned to a good standard. I stayed at this hotel for 3 weeks on business, at no point during this stay in 3 different rooms did I find the cleaning up to scratch... Week 1: Room was very...

Great hotel in the heart of everything. Room very large (room 306). Clean and fresh. Little on the noisy side as hotel overlooking/next to one of the main road s in city centre. Great comfortable bed. 2 minutes walk from rail station 🚉. Fantastic value, holiday Inn express as you come to expect.

I wouldn't stay here again. It was a very basic run hotel. Not like any of the other holiday inn express chains I've stayed at before. I wish I'd booked premier inn as this reminded me more of a travel lodge
