Our Stay at the Holiday Inn Express Southwark
When planning a family vacation, finding the right hotel that caters to the needs of both parents and children is essential. Our recent family stay at the Holiday Inn Express Southwark was nothing short of exceptional. Located in the heart of London, this hotel proved to be the ideal choice for our family trip to the capital...here are my thoughts on why:
**1. A Convenient Location**
The Holiday Inn Express Southwark's prime location in the heart of London was a significant selling point for us. Situated in the vibrant Southwark neighbourhood, the hotel is within walking distance of several iconic attractions, including the Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and Borough Market. This central location made it incredibly easy to explore London with our family, saving us both time and transportation costs.
**2. Warm and Welcoming Staff**
From the moment we arrived, the hotel staff greeted us with genuine warmth and hospitality. They were quick to check us in, offer recommendations for family-friendly activities, and answer any questions we had. I was uncertain of the best options for getting to an appointment at the Houses Of Parliament the following morning and the receptionist was so helpful in looking this up and printing out directions to the nearest tube station as well as showing me exactly which line to take.  Later on in the evening, we were able to swap our pillows for more firm ones and borrow an ice bucket for keeping our drinks cool - the staff were always only too happy to help. Their attentiveness and friendliness created a welcoming atmosphere throughout our stay, making us feel right at home.
**3. Family-Friendly Accommodation**
Our family rooms at the Holiday Inn Express Southwark were spacious, clean, and well-designed. We had an inter-connecting room - one with a comfortable king-sized bed for the adults and sofa bed for our children provided ample sleeping space. The other room was an accessible room with a double bed and was so spacious and well appointed.  The room was equipped with all the essential amenities, including a flat-screen TV, a coffee maker, and a well-maintained bathroom.

**4. Free and Reliable Wi-Fi**
Staying connected during our family vacation was essential as my kids use their screens to regulate after a sensory-overwhelming day, and the hotel's free and reliable Wi-Fi made this a breeze. Whether we needed to research nearby attractions or share our adventures with friends and family, we could count on the hotel's Wi-Fi to keep us connected without any interruptions.
**5. Complimentary Breakfast**
One of the standout features of the Holiday Inn Express Southwark was its complimentary breakfast buffet. The diverse selection of hot and cold breakfast items catered to all tastes and dietary preferences. Our children especially loved the delicious blueberry and chocolate muffins, and croissants with a variety of spreads and I really enjoyed the hot breakfast options. The breakfast provided a great start to our busy days of sightseeing.
**6. Accessibility**
The Holiday Inn Express Southwark prides itself on being accessible to all guests, including those with mobility challenges. The hotel features ramps, wide doorways, and elevators to accommodate wheelchairs and strollers. This commitment to accessibility ensures that all families can enjoy a comfortable stay.
**7. Housekeeping Excellence**
Throughout our stay, we were consistently impressed with the hotel's housekeeping staff. Our room was impeccably clean, and the attention to detail in maintaining cleanliness was evident and greatly contributed to our overall satisfaction.
**8. Secure and Reliable Environment**
Safety is a top priority when traveling with a family, and the Holiday Inn Express Southwark provides a secure and reliable environment. The hotel has key card access to guest floors, and 24-hour security ensures a peaceful night's sleep. We felt safe and well-cared for during our entire stay.
Our family stay at the Holiday Inn Express Southwark was a truly memorable experience. The hotel's convenient location, warm and welcoming staff, family-friendly amenities, and commitment to sustainability all contributed to our enjoyable stay. With its spacious family rooms and complimentary breakfast, the hotel catered to the needs of both parents and children, making it an excellent choice for families exploring London.
