The Great Room is the all-day dining restaurant at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel Dubai Airport. It’s also guilty of serving the worst breakfast I have ever had in Dubai in recent memory, and that includes the rubbish I had at the Food Chalet in JVC the other day. How a multinational like the Holiday Inn can stoop so low is unfathomable. The scrambled eggs had turned into a block which had to be cut rather than spooned, the mashed potato (for breakfast???), clearly out of a packet, was completely dried out, the sugar-free jam was off, and the cheap, cheap, cheap cuts of cold meats were sweating profusely. AED37 may not seem like a lot of money for a hot breakfast these days but believe me, it is AED36 too much for what amounts to nothing less than a disgrace by Dubai standards. Shame on you Holiday Inn.
