Excellent hotel literally just off the M6 which provided everything we needed for a one night stopover. Lovely decor in central area with friendly staff and good quality breakfast. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this hotel.

We had a lovely one night stay at the Holiday Inn Express, Preston. The beds were very comfy, nice spacious room, big carpark, and clean modern building. The room had aircon to keep it at a good temperature and meant it was quiet as you didnt have to open a window. Good buffet breakfast of cereals, toast, pastries, yoghurt, fruit, cooked breakfast etc. Really friendly and helpful reception which made check-in much more enjoyable. Much better value and class than the Premier Inns we have been staying in which dont include breakfast and usually dont have aircon.

We arrived at the hotel, only to be told that i had booked a double room only. Good job I had printed off my Confirmation Booking Form which clearly stated a Double Room and a Sofa bed. I did say I had made a mistake as i needed the room for 2 adults and a child, but that i had phoned and they had changed the booking via calling the Hotel reception, I was told that they had amended the people staying and they would confirm this in an email, which never came. They dully gave us a room as booked, we asked about evening meal and was told they started serving at 6.30 which was good for us with having a child with us, we arrived in reception at just before 6.30 to be told they were serving a coach party of 50 plus before any other guests. I explained this was not acceptable as we had a child with us that was hungry and they couldn't expect her to wait till 8pm. We were told that the coach party had been booked in for a long time, I replied that when we asked we were told 6.30 nothing was said about a coach party otherwise we would have made other arrangements, we ended up getting a chinese carryout. Breakfast wasnt much better, the plates were dirty, cold and dripping in water. Overall my experience of this hotel is totally unsatisfactory and needless to say I will not be staying there again.

We stopped at this hotel as part of a coach weekend away to the Lake District. A very nice hotel. Even though it was just off the main road it was very quiet and relaxing. Our room was on the first floor by the lift, but again very quiet. The room looked like it had recently been refurbished. Very clean and fresh, with a nice view out of the window. Food was simple but tasty. Chicken for evening meal and buffet for breakfast. Good and hot. But I would say I would have liked a tea or coffee after dinner. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Only downside was the lift was a bit temperamental. Looking forward to another stay in the future.

Room was very clean but had an 'odour'. Discovered it was a dog friendly hotel and realised it was dog pee. Not the hotels fault but inconsiderate dog owners! Advised reception and they made a note to advise housekeeping. Comfortable bed and crisp clean bedding. Breakfast selection was excellent and generous. Cannot praise the staff enough, all very friendly and helpful. The Manager came to our rescue when we messed up the TV! Lounging areas very comfortable too. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel. We were on a coach trip so cannot rate costs etc as all inclusive price for whole trip.

I’ve stayed at Holiday Inn Express hotels many times before and the following is my first bad experience. We arrived at the Preston South property on a Saturday afternoon - I’d booked a room the day before following an issue with another hotel (which, in retrospect, would have been better than what followed). The booking system said ‘last room available’ but didn’t specify what room. We got into our room and realised we had been allocated ‘the dreaded disabled room’ - which is always, inevitably and without fail the worst room in a hotel. We asked to be moved to a different room but were told the hotel was full. The receptionist pretty much blamed us for picking that room, as apparently the system said it was kind of ‘whatever is available’. I booked directly from IHG’s portal and whatever the description might have said (I honestly cannot remember) it did *not* say ‘disabled room’. I would not have booked - period, as the disabled bathrooms are not my idea of comfort and I know from previous travelling experience that the disabled room is the most neglected room in the property. After trying to find another hotel, we decided to stay for that one night and cancel the following day, as at least the hotel had air conditioning and the other hotels we had called didn’t. The receptionist said they could switch us to a different room the next day but although I appreciated the offer, at that point we just wanted to go home. Remember when I said that at least we had air conditioning? Well, that stopped working too - during the hottest weekend in the UK. I phoned the front desk and a bored sounding receptionist said they would try to reset it from the office. I heard nothing back so some twenty minutes later I went to check. A different member of staff said he had tried to reset it but there was nothing he could do, and could offer a room change (which I knew was not going to happen) or a fan. We took the fan, which proved to be a lifesaver as at least it worked. All round, our experience was unpleasant and depressing. The disabled bathroom - as you will see from the photos, was dirty and grotty. My husband works in a care home and he was horrified at how dirty the disabled seat was. The floor had glue marks from previous repairs and encrusted dirt. It was absolutely dismal and to think that a disabled guest would have had no choice but to take that room is absolutely heartbreaking and unfair. As I am not disabled and could stand up, I chose to wear flipflops in the shower. I did not want my bare feet touching that floor. The room had an overall sense of penny-pinching and neglect. The tissue box in the bathroom was empty. The toilet roll on the holder was one third full. There was nowhere to hang a towel from. The soap dispenser by the sink was empty. There were cobwebs by the window. A mysterious brown stain on the carpet. Marks on the wall that could possibly have been paw prints and the room had a faint smell of dog. It’s possible that service dogs would be allowed in the room. I did see a dog with a guest in the corridor, which I found very off putting. At the very least, rooms that allow animals should not be made available for non-animal carrying guests. The staff I encountered, with the exception of the chap with a beard, who was helpful and provided me with a fan, looked uninterested and begrudging guests. For an IHG property, that’s very disappointing. The morning after our stay, we decided to skip breakfast and get the hell out of there. Safe to say I would not recommend this hotel.

Just off the M6 after or before Preston, located in a quiet cul-de-sac with suitable parking for all. Stayed on 1st floor, single room. Wide bed, very comfortable. Minimal distribution from the passing traffic day and night. Shower also very good, tea coffee etc topped up daily. Easy to use TV with remote. Breakfast: everyone has a say about it. The hot food is limited to bacon, sausages, scrambled egg and baked beans. Plates are small. But you have additional options of traditional cereals with milk from a chilled machine. A selection of yoghurt, fruit etc. As well as either a toast maker or baps to make sandwich with your hot food. You can make a balanced meal out of the selections easily. A coffee machine and juice vendor complement your meal. The staff were very friendly. Really nice stay

Stayed here a year ago and it was fabulous, this time it was absolutely awful. Arrived after a 4 hour drive to be told there was no food available due to shortage of staff so had to go out for dinner. Room acceptable but nothing to get too excited about. Breakfast was very poor compared to previous visit. Staff seemed very disinterested and not really bothered about anything. Very expensive now for an experience they are not delivering.
