Certainly enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Mostly enjoyed the spacious room and bathroom; exceptional cleanliness and comfort in a very convenient location. Apart from a really slow elevator; everything else was wonderful ... very friendly helpful staff too.

We appreciate your comments and 5 star review of our hotel. Our Executive Tower elevator services 7 floors and during departure and arrival times some guests may find short delays. It is great to hear that everything else went so well during your stay.

After our little problem with the room on the first day ( the previous occupants were smoking in the bathroom) we got a very nice suite. The young lady in the reception was very accommodating. Everything was perfect.

In the rare occurrence where smoking happens we have a sanitizing protocol which apparently was not effective for your first room. I am pleased we found an upgrade for you due to the...

Enjoyed the pool, waterslides, fitness centre and breakfast. Real cream, milk would be nice in room fridges instead of fake stuff. Ice machine did not work. Beds were not the most comfiest, but not the worst either. Would stay again.

We found the room very nice clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was quite adequate with a good selection of cereals eggs meat and drinks. The location was excellent too with several different restaurants and shopping nearby. The staff were all friendly and polite.

Thank you for your comments.
