Stayed here for one night and it was fine. On arrival at the hotel you park around the back in some temporary parking spaces to enable you to check in and get a code to access one of the 20 parking spaces in the car park behind the hotel. If this is full there is an NCP car park close... More

Stayed here for a hen weekend. Tomas on reception was incredibly helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. Can't thank him enough. Hotel is excellently situated with handy parking round the back. Room was clean and comfortable. Would stay here again.

The chain is showing its age; as other reviewers have said, in a damp climate, carpeting is a disaster, and so the hotel has a slight smell of mold, and the exterior is dated modern. The location is great if you want to stay by the train station, but you better be in good shape if you want to visit... More

6 mature ladies booked 3 twin rooms at the Holiday Inn Express for a one night shopping trip. Our room was a bit smelly (like drains) when we arrived, but we went out for the evening and hoped it would be better when we got back.

Very efficient and friendly staff when we checked in (and out!). The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It was perfect for us because it was so close to the train station. Good views of Temple Meads from the lift lobby! The breakfast was well organised and there was plenty of food. We would certainly use this hotel again.

There are two car parks at the rear; covered (expensive - on the left) and pay and display (cheap - on the right). It's around a 10-15 minute walk to the town centre. If you just want a drink and...
