This is a run-of-the-mill Holiday Inn Express. The rooms are large and clean and the beds comfortable but the furnishings are a little worn e.g. the sockets on the lamp bases did not work, tap in the bathroom leaked when turned on and the TV was an older model that had an old-style USB port that does not work to power modern streaming devices, WiFi occasionally dropped out etc. Nothing important but just typical of older, slightly worn furnishings.
The location is near a lot of restaurants and bars - if you like Indian food I can recommend Taste of India just across the road. However, unfortunately, there was a lot of noise outside the hotel during the night presumably from the nearby restaurants and bars which woke up my wife several times even though we were on the top floor.
Breakfast was good with a wide variety of choices typical of the hotel brand but the breakfast room was tiny and more than half the tables had high bar-stools. This meant that it was perpetually packed with no available seating but it was well staffed and choices did not run out. In general, the staff were generally very effective and friendly and checking in and out was very efficient.
Stayed at this location last week for work and as I always chose to stay with an IHG property, I felt that this location went above and beyond to provide excellent customer service. The hotel was clean, up to date and conveniently located. The staff was excellent. I left my suitcase by the coffee bar one morning and the staff was so helpful on getting it for me until I could return for it. Emily, the Director of Sales, Brittany the Front Office Manager and Kim the General Manager were all so helpful and kind during my stay. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in this area.
