    Superb

    Clean, comfortable, convenient; no shortage of refreshments i.e. tea/coffee FOC, also other snacks for purchase at any time of day/evening.

    Limited hanging space for clothing: we found the alignment of rails at right angles not convenient - one single slightly longer rail would have been better.

    Very good

    The staff were helpful and friendly. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The pub next door is a real bonus serving excellent meals and reasonable prices. I think this is a big plus for you.

    The breakfast was ok although cutlery and crockery should be checked for cleanness before been put out. I had a job finding knifes and forks which were clean also bowls.

    Convenient location for business visits that day. Good choice of food at the Harvester to eat evening meal.

    Bath towels could have done with being a bit bigger.

    Exceptional

    Staff were some of the most friendly we have come across on our various travels. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast was very good and location was also good. We would certainly recommend this Holiday Inn Express as closeness to M5 excellent.

    The breakfast room could be cosier looking.

    Superb

    The room was extremely comfortable, but above all the staff, who were all very accomodating and polite without being intrusive.

    The breakfast bar, although excellently stocked with abundant food was somewhat congested at peak times. A minor fault and one that could easily be addressed by a little reorganisation of the self serving area.

    Fabulous

    24 hour bar.Staff very efficient at 3:30 in the morning evacuating after fire-alarm and all guests offered a drink (alcoholoc or other) compliments of the hotel as an apology.

    3:30am fire alarm set off (apparently) by guest smoking in non-smoking room. (However, see above for positive response of staff)

    Very good

    Enjoyed our visit to the Harvester Resteraunt nextdoor excellent value for money.Would love it if they opened a branch in Newquay Cornwall.

    Booked a Double Room but was allocated a twin & this could not be changed!
