This was only my second time booking a Holiday Inn Express in the UK this time it was the Holiday Inn Express Newport in South Wales. I had used Holiday inn in the US and once in London but just thought of this booking as a stopping off point en-route to Bristol & Somerset – it turned out to be a great one.

The room rate was a very competitive £47.50 per night so initially I wasn’t expecting too much from the room. On arrival we were informed by a very pleasant reception agent of a complimentary breakfast which I thought was excellent value. Further more we were advised of a large group which could impact service during breakfast – this I thought was very good and considerate;  it was advised that after 9am would be a good time for breakfast. (i.e. after the group left). Finally before we left checkin we got a free WiFi voucher which was yet another nice touch, as some hotels charge for WiFi.

The breakfast was a very nice buffet but it did get a bit busy with the cutlery and plates hard to get at times as the queues for toast were blocking access to these areas – only a small issue which could be resolved by repositioning cutlery and plates to a better area. But that being said I would return here any time and would have no hesitation staying at the Holiday Inn Express chain in the future especially if the standard found in Newport was anything to go by.

One very comfortable stay and great value! It was so good I just had to post a brief hotel review to spread the word.
