Holiday Inn Expresses are changing...

We've stayed at quite a lot of Holiday Inn Expresses over the last few years, and have always thought that they were of a good standard.

However our experience at Newcastle surprised us. The room was fine, but the bathroom hadn't been cleaned properly. There was dental floss and hair on the floor; the loo hadn't been bleached. When we went to check-out, we asked to store our luggage so that we could spend some time in the city centre. We were told that they charged £2.50 per item for departing guests, only the luggage for incoming guests was free. We have never been charged in any hotel for this service - even in London. We do think this is poor and luggage storage should be a facility for all guests. Finally, we had difficulty finding our way into the hotel as there are no signs from the road to the parking area.

clean. a bit noisy.

We asked for a family room, and were put in an accessible room on account of it being large enough to accommodate a double bed, double sofa bed and a travel cot.

This was good, however, it meant that there was no bath to wash the kids in as it was a wet-room style bathroom, and it felt a bit ungrateful to complain about this as it was a nice gesture. Husband complained about the bed being old and uncomfortable. The breakfast was good (cheap sausages and no bacon were the only negative points). Location ok but avoid the local 'happy chip' takeaway at all costs - eeeeeeuuuuuurgh!
