Last year my partner and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express just outside Cambridge and were pleasantly surprised that the standard double which we booked was more than a bland business person's week night stop-off joint. We therefore booked this hotel just outside Oxford expecting a similar standard, and because the standard double in Cambridge was so good we plumped for the executive double in Oxford for £140 on a Saturday night, thinking it would prove cracking value.
Unfortunately the room was bland, the bathroom in need if refurbishment and the décor was ghastly. Although the room was clean and it had a HD TV with a reasonable selection of channels, it was never worth £140. Furthermore, it was impossible to get hold of reception on the 'phone despite several attempts. Although this hotel would be fine for a business trip, that's all it should be used for. Accommodation suitable for a weekend trip away it is not.
