    It was a bit noisy in the early hours of one morning which sounded like reversing horns. Was not too happy as at breakfast as not enough seating had to wait for a while . Bathroom door had a big dent in and the toilet roll holder kept coming off.

    Breakfast woes...

    Great location of course. Everything pretty standard for Holiday Inn Express - but........ they couldn't cope with breakfast. Tables not being cleared, receptionists checking people in/out, then trying to clear tables. Ran out of mugs both mornings we were there. Large plates not warmed but small plates were? Food ran out quickly and took time to replenish, what was out seemed to go cold quickly. A hotel does this every morning, surely you should have got good at it by now? Seems not....so be prepared....
