Disappointing

Posted Nov 1, 2016
Pros: The friendly, helpful staff. It was clean.
Cons: The outdated decor, the tiny TV, wifi that didn't work except in the corridor and the length of time we had to wait for food.
Location: We had come in from the Aberdeen side of Perth which meant we had to travel through the busy town to get to the A9 side.
We choose Holiday Inn Express because of the generally high standard maintained throughout the chain. This hotel is tired and needs a serious upgrade. I can't fault the staff, however, as they were friendly and looked genuinely disappointed when I told them upon checkout that I had to stand in the corridor to get wifi. The modem was right outside our room yet neither my iPad nor my laptop could find a signal and we were unable to use our Roku either. (This had worked brilliantly the night before in the Aberdeen Holiday Inn Express. We were hungry and tired after a long journey and opted to eat in the breakfast room where they serve soup and pizza. It took so long to come, my husband went to M&S in the garage opposite, shopped for drinks and snacks, put them in our room and still had to wait half an hour in the foyer (the seat was comfier there) for our soup with warm rolls. The Chicago Town pizza we shared in our room was delicious. 12" for around £10 The room had a minuscule 19inch tv on the wall in the corner, adding to the feeling of disappointment, especially as this room had cost way more than the plush one in Aberdeen. Breakfast was nice, as expected (my husband missed having bacon though) and the staff were happy and helpful. So, staff full marks, hotel, clean but tired.

Traffic noise to be expected but not the noise allowed to go on from other guests - laughing and calling out to each other until at 4am we could take no more and we packed up and left - the idea of staying in the first place was to break our journey and have a stress free and safe trip home we might as well have saved ourselves the cost of a room.

Good hotel out of town

Posted Jun 3, 2016
Very friendly staff : helped with everything! Hotel itself not quite up to standard of holiday inns in terms of quality of breakfast/rooms. Would have liked to have a/c to cool room down. But overall staff made up for any nit picky issues with hotel itself: they are awesome!

Pros: Value for money.
Stayed here while visiting Perth's annual beer festival. Pleasant walk into town along the river.

Friendly Hotel in a Friendly Town

Posted Jan 15, 2016
Pros: The hotel is very clean, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel also offers free breakfast.
Cons: The toilet didn't flush properly. Also, they could provide slippers.
Location: There is a restaurant/pub--the Maltings right beside it. The city center is quite far away, but it's just a bus ride away.
I stayed there with my boyfriend. Overall, the experience has been positive. The staff were very friendly and the room was always clean. The free breakfast was decent, but they could expand their menu.
