Parking can be an issue. The reception staff were ok but wasn't sure about this canteen style seating for breakfast. The tele was too small for the room so could hardly see it. The bed was comfy though. The bathroom only had a shower room and the pressure was ok but would have been nice to have a bath if...

I booked two rooms at the Holiday Inn Express Harlow, first impression at reception was this looks good, that is where it ended. Walked into the room, took my shoes off and walked over a wet patch on the carpet, which smelt like urine and probably was urine. Then I sat on the bed, which collapsed. I called reception, I...

Best sleep I've had in a hotel, amazingly comfy beds that look very inviting. Lovely shower, and a spacious room. Welcoming staff. Relatively spotless room, and very clean bathroom. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone staying in Harlow.

Not as good as other HIEs we have stayed in in UK and worldwide. Car park too small and nearby parking is in a run down town multistorey car park. Had problems with bathroom sink and shower not draining well, otherwise room ok. Breakfast was not up to standard we have experienced in other HIEs. Rubbery scrambled egg and rather...

Nice hotel in good location. There is a bar down stairs that does a small selection of meals plus drinks. The only issue is the people on reception are also the bar staff, so if you get several people checking in at once then there becomes a wait at the bar. The car park is not very well signposted and...

I've stayed at this hotel in the past and had generally good experiences with it! However there were a few issues this time round, such as the digital thermostat not working! This wasn't a huge problem because the room was an okay temperature anyway! This bigger problem was a high pitched wining sound coming from the plumbing in the bathroom!...
