8.0.Very Good.
  • 4.0.Fair

    We stayed in Holiday Inn due to its proximity to the airport. It provides convenient shuttle bus service to the airport, and the breakfast is decent. Reception staff were not particularly informative or polite. Room carpet is dirty and tired. Hotel lobby is smoky from the bar. Therefore we will consider staying in other hotel next time.

    Great location for a one night stopover with free airport pick up/drop off. Breakfast selection (included) is amazing. Room we were in was adequate but tired. Bathroom updated and spotless.

    What a terrific hotel! Staff go above and beyond to make your stay/in transit experience wonderful. Perks include: early check in, free airport shuttle to and from the airport terminals - even terminal 2! Drivers are on time and super friendly! Staff even prepared a to go breakfast box for me to take to the airport. They let me hop on the shuttle to T1 to go to Spinneys grocery store to pick up a few essentials for my onward journey, and took me back to the hotel on a scheduled shuttle bus. Beds were super comfortable, the rooms were clean, and were equipped with fridge, English tv channels and ac. Showers were hot, and toiletries were plentiful. Wonderful stay at the Holiday Inn Express, would absolutely stay again and recommend this hotel to travellers in transit for an easy, refreshing stop! Thanks so much for a great stay!

    Not well kept. Had one of the worst experiences of all stays at Holiday Inn properties. Other than liquid soap nothing else was provided in the washroom. The shower only had hot water and no cold water. I almost got scalded, tried every control without success. Had to abandon the thought of a shower. The free shuttle that wa supposedly ran every 30 min did not show up for 1hr and 15 minutes while shuttles from other hotels came in twice during that period. When I complained to the front desk they tried to tell me I was wrong. When I asked them to check with the driver they said they would check and contact me. No one got back to me and I did not see that person at the desk for the remainder time. Definitely not what I have come to expect of IHG properties.
