        Holiday Inn Express Reviews

        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Conscientious and helpful staff

          Stained and badly laid room carpet

        • Single
          9.6

          The service was good; the rooms were clean; the checking in process was smooth. The breakfast was as advertised, and I enjoyed the informality of helping yourself. The position of the hotel just off the Norwich ring road was convenient both for getting into Norwich and getting out of it. We chose it partly because of its location.

          I found the parking space very hit and miss, mainly because people use the allotted space for hotel guests to attend the racquet club next door or other sports events. This was evident by the fact that there were free spaces late at night - which would not have been the case if the parking area were used only by hotel guests. It is not a problem for walking a short distance, but becomes so if one is trying to carry heavy luggage in and out at the beginning and end of one's stay.Some system where a disc to put on the windscreen of one's car to say that one was a hotel guest would be one way to address this - and a notice to say 'hotel badge-holders only'..

          good basic hotel

          Booking conditions staed car parking must be reserved, hotel staff did not know anything about this

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The staff were all very helpful and the room spacious. Very good shower and innovative bathroom/toilet door. Very good breakfast. We were there to attend The Norwich Jazz Party at Holiday Inn, Norwich Airport, which is why I haven't ticked any of the above options.

          High charge for internet access. This is the only hotel we've stayed in over the past few years (in uk and France) which has charged for wi-fi. It would have been useful to be able to look at things on the internet (directions, weather etc) but not at nearly £10 a day. This is why facilities only rates as fair.

          from booking in to booking out it was really relaxing and friendly no qualms at all would definately book at holiday inn express again.Easy parking ,convenient by the superstore ,cant complain about anything

          would have liked a proper english breakfast when in a english hotel i prefer a english breakfast

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          the stay was great. Room very clean!!!

          Breakfast was awful. I would rather have paid and got a quality breakfast.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The Staff were excellent and very helpful they are a credit to your Hotel this was my first visit to one of your chains and if and when i stay at another i would expect the same

        • Older travelers

          Excellant location for catching early morning flight to Amsterdam.

          Beds were soft and flimsy.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Easy very clean hotel just right for an overnight stay in Norwich

          They gave away our twin room - had to make up the sofa bed at midnight! Apologetic staff though who tried to make amends but it shouldn't happen.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The staff were so helpful and friendly

          location rather busy with Asda next door

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          I liked thge open space, plenty of room to sit and relax.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Handy for Norwich Airport although I believe there is another H I Express adjacent to the airport. Staff very friendly and helpful.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          This was a more comfortable and stylish Hotel than we had expected. The bedroom was air-conditioned with contemporary furnishings and comfortable and spotlessly clean linen. The bathroom had a food-sized shower and lovely fluffy towels. The lighting was lovely and there was ample space.The hotel was quiet at night.The reception rooms were well set out and user friendly and the garden area attractive

          Breakfast was a tedious experience of queues and time wasting activities like making own toast and having to wait for it - making the queue longer.When we reached the hot food the scrambled egg had run out.The orange juice was pale coloured water. (perhaps the concentrate had run out?) We noted several groups being incredibly greedy and taking away food that would last the day. I think the hotel would be more cost effective in engaging in breakfast staff

          I was very surprised at the quality of this hotel. I felt comfortable and safe. It was clean and the room was spacious. I slept very well as it was very quiet.The location was great for Norwich city centre. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. I will book again when I am next in Norwich. There were plenty of places nearby to get food if needed. Highly recommended.Nothing negative to say!

          The parking was an issue when I arrived with zero spaces and people fighting for a space. The dinner menu wasn't great with limited choice and not very healthy. I also found it very noisy with rally boy racers outside the hotel quite late at night.
