Holiday Inn Express, Preston South: Reedfield Place, Walton Summit, PR5 8AA
RATING: Food 2; Atmosphere 2.5; Service 3; Drinks 2.5; Toilets 3.5; Website 3
Basically, we were searching for somewhere between Edinburgh and Bristol as a half-way stopover. Preston seemed a good bet and the Holiday Inn Express, Preston South, at £75 for B&B seemed a good bet as it was yards from the M6 and parking was easy. We were not disappointed. Yes, the room was sizeable and the wi-fi worked (a must for a business trip), the TV was well-positioned and the shower worked well. It was also quiet. The breakfast? We’ll it was OK but a little extra spent would make this a quality halt.
