Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Total Chaos!
I have stayed there on several occasions , this time i believe the home office had commandeered part of the hotel for asylum seekers, children were running out of control everywhere couldn't hear receptionist on checking in, the place was total Chaos! A warning should have been posted on there website, will never retun to this or a another holiday inn express again.

Ok for business
The hotel is being used to house asylum seekers - not a negative per se, just something to be aware of - bar areas are busy, there are notices up about not running in the corridors which make it feel like you’re at school, etc. Also parking is charged, currently £3 - there is no alternative, so why not just add it to the cost of the room? Overall it was fine for a business trip but if I was on a leisure break I’d have been disappointed.
