Have to say I was impressed with this hotel which is perfect for business stays or a group of friends visiting Bath. No unnecessary frills but the rooms are large, well appointed, clean and new with a comfortable waiting area in Reception. There is no additional charge for parking or breakfast with nice touches like free takeaway coffee. Staff could... More

Holiday Inn Express Bath is a great budget hotel within walking distance of the city centre. This is a destination hotel, as in you stay here to explore Bath - not to hang out all day in the hotel and it suits its purpose perfectly! It's clean, fairly modern and reasonably priced for what it is. The staff were great... More

We stayed here for one Night at the end of November for the Christmas Market. Upon arrival we were checked in without any problems. The room was very clean and a decent size too, the Lift took a while to get to us so we just used the stairs as this was quicker! The Car Park is rather small and... More

My wife and I stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in Bath for one night on one of our regular theatre trips. We chose that hotel as Bath was overcrowded due of the Christmas market but we were really rather disappointed. The room, at £243, was exorbitantly expensive even for Bath and even allowing for the fact that there was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay at the popular Holiday Inn Express Bath hotel and explore Bath's historic city centre on foot. Holiday Inn Express Bath's modern interior contrasts with its warm, honey-coloured Bath stone exterior. We're a short stroll from the historic city centre, where you can take your time with a relaxing session at Thermae Bath Spa. We are also close to Bath Spa train station for regular trains to London Paddington and Bristol Airport is a 40-minute drive. We're 10 minutes' drive from meetings at Bath's 3 Ministry of Defence offices and the University of Bath campus. Bath Spa University is only 5 minutes from Holiday Inn Express Bath by car. Avoid the traffic when visiting Helphire Group PLC and Amdocs, minutes away on Lower Bristol Road. The convenient Holiday Inn Express Bath is a 10-minute walk to the elegant Pump Room at the Roman Baths and the Grade I-listed Royal Crescent. Learn how the city inspired one of England's favorite writers at nearby Jane Austen Centre. Kids love mini-safaris at Longleat's rambling estate, a 30-minute drive away. Wake up to sausages, baked beans, scrambled eggs and more as part of the inclusive breakfast buffet and watch Bath come to life from the windows of the airy Great Room. Our friendly Front Desk team will give you information on day trips to Glastonbury and Stonehenge. 60 free onsite parking spaces are available and allocated on a first come first served basis. Wi-Fi is free. ... more   less
