My partner and I stayed at The Holiday Inn Express for two night (Gloucester - South) WATERWELLS BUSINESS PARK GLOUCESTER, GL2 2AB UK), whilst attending the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The room was perfectly decent, but the bathroom tiles on the floor need bleaching as they are badly stained, and someone has written on a couple of tiles with what looks...

This is a good HI Express - great location for the town and I thought the bar area/restaurant was better than some I've stayed at. Friendly staff, clean hotel and the room was good too - we were on the 1st floor facing Swindon Rd and had no issues with road noise. I slept really well. Check-in is at 3pm....

This Holiday Inn Express is in a great location for bars and restaurants. The rooms have everything you need, although we were in a bit of a debate as to the purpose of the wooden circular knobs on the wall, I thought they were wall art and my partner thought they were coat hooks! The shower was fantastic, very powerful...

I visited this hotel from Friday-Sunday and it was lovely. Perfect location, great breakfast, great service - on checkout we were even able to stay an extra 2 and a half hours with no extra cost due to our train leaving later in the day which was very much appreciated. The only thing I can say to perhaps improve upon...

Holiday Inn Express is clean and close to the town centre. If you are staying in Cheltenham and are looking for a simple hotel then look no further. Clean and spacious rooms, buffet breakfast (average) and a reception run bar for a night cap. On the positive front the hotel provides access to the local DW fitness 2 min walk...

We had planned a one-night break to Cheltenham & wanted to stay at an affordable hotel in or near the Brewery Quarter. We chose the Holiday Inn Express because it was the only good quality budget hotel that would guarantee us a room with twin beds - and we're so glad we made this choice! The hotel staff were excellent,...

The staff were helpful upon check-in and the room clean except for questionable stains on the sofa. The bed was comfortable however I was woken very early in the morning (possibly 0430 hrs) by an aircraft flying overhead then the traffic noise started. As a result a really poor night's sleep and wouldn't stay there again. There were pairs of...
