New IHG PointBreaks list of 190 x 5,000 point hotels, book on Monday

Yesterday, IHG Rewards Club (the Holiday Inn, HI Express, Crowne Plaza, InterContinental etc group) released a “preview” of the new list of PointBreaks redemptions.

These rooms are a fantastic deal.

All of the 190 hotels below will be available for just 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night from Monday, saving up to 25,000 points per night in some cases.

PointBreaks availability is very limited so book ASAP if you are interested, as soon as bookings open up on Monday. Bookings are refundable as with a standard reward reservation so there is nothing to lose.  IHG works on US time so I would not expect the offer to be available until mid-afternoon in the UK.

You can book via the IHG PointBreaks page here or via the standard booking page hereIf the PointBreaks page has not yet been updated, it does not necessarily mean that the special deals below will not already be bookable – do a search on the hotel you want to check.

You will be able to book these hotels for dates up to January 31st.

Crowne Plaza Heythrop Park

You allowed a maximum of two bookings per individual hotel. Each booking can be for as many nights as you want.

Remember that if you attempt to amend your booking later by dropping a night or two the whole booking will reprice at the full rate.

One of highlights of the list (and, frankly, there are not many this time around) is the Crowne Plaza Heythrop Park near Chipping Norton.  This is meant to be a decent property for a weekend break in the country, with a pool (and a slide!).   Frankly, for 5000 IHG points per night you really can’t go wrong.

There are also Holiday Inn Express hotels near Birmingham (Star City) and near Manchester (Manchester East) which could come in handy.  Some people may find it cheaper to move in there for a couple of months than continue to pay rent!

Of the European and Middle Eastern lists, the Lille property may make an interesting base for a Eurostar weekend break.  Note that the Bilbao property is by the airport which is not ideal.  The Berlin property also seems rather remote.

The InterContinental in Cairo is interesting but that is a challenging place to visit at the moment, to put it mildly.  The Holiday Inn Vilnius is back on the list and does seem to be in a good location although I imagine it could be rather chilly.

For anyone with time on their hands, you might want to consider the Holiday Inn Resort Bali Benoa in Indonesia.  If I had nothing else to do, spending a couple of months there at 5,000 points per night would probably not be a huge hardship.  This is not an expensive resort to book for cash, however, so it is not a ‘bargain’ in that sense.

    Just to say that the formatting of your list has lumped North Carolina as part of Montana.

    I’m not sure the folks in Raleigh would approve.

    • Sorry! At one point I had Saudi Arabia in South Africa but I spotted that!

    • Maybe not, but a former resident of Durham who is about to move to Billings may prefer not having to move interstate as she doesn’t like flying!

    • Polite note that Colombia (the country) is spelled differently to Columbia (South Carolina, USA). This may be verbatim from IHG…?

  2. Dumfries is a nice town and a nice area to visit, just wrong time of year. Helsinki airport is a big plus, anybody wanting a reward flight to/from BKk could start or end their journey there, saving a load of avios as it is one zone less than UK and no worries about mkssed connections.

  3. Globetrotter7 says:

    Thank you, thanks you, thank you Rob for this! Great timing as I’m off to Belgium tomorrow and have booked 3 nights at the HIX Mechelen City (the only Belgian hotel to feature on the list!) using points+cash. A quick search shows rooms are still available so I will cancel and rebook tomorrow before check in. Thanks again. Wouldn’t have known I can save 10,000 points per night if it wasn’t for your great site…thanks again

    • Make sure you book the second room BEFORE cancelling your first! Just in case…. (assuming you have enough points, of course)

  4. Does anyone have a link to the Ts & Cs?

    • There are no T&C’s! However ….

      * Same rules as normal redemptions – cancel at any point and get your points back.
      * Each hotel has a limited number of PB rooms. Once they have booked (guess a number) of rooms at 5,000 points the offer disappears. Popular hotels will go quickly on Monday.
      * Maximum two bookings per hotel at 5,000 points but you can book as many nights as you want

    I’ve stayed a couple times at Holiday Inn Maidstone – Sevenoaks. Adequate, not excellent. Decent enough overnight base for exploring Kent (it’s a short drive to Leeds Castle) and its motorway location is probably good if you want a staging point for EuroTunnel.

  6. I stayed at Heythrop Park CP this time last year to hit one of my into the nights targets. The hotel itself is nice and but the bar/restaurant isn’t worth visiting. We went to the nearby pub just 2 minutes drive away and had a lovely meal. Would be interesting to see what benefits Spire Elite’s very there.

    • Restaurant was rubbish five years ago e.g. six inch frozen Iceland pizzas (the ones that come ten in a bag) for the kids. Cant believe theyve not done anything about it.

  7. The HI Sandton Rivonia Road is a decent property that also treats elites well. If I were popping up to Jo’burg I would certainly grab that for 5k points.

    (Feeling nostalgia for the times when the IC Sandton used to appear on the list. *sniff*)

  8. I need two nights at the Crowne Plaza Memphis East but in Aug! What are the chances it will appear again. Nil I suspect!

  9. Yeah it’s a really nice town and HI Dumfries is set in lovely grounds and the communal parts of the hotel are in a lovely old fashioned building. The rooms are in a cookie cutter building hidden at the back and they aren’t too bad.

    However, HI Dumfries has been managed by a long line of complete incompetents. Since it joined IHG two years ago it has had around five different General Managers.

    It’s owned by the same lot that own HI Darlington North, Mercure Sheffield and the two new IHG hotels at Aberdeen airport, they are also building the new HI in Manchester.

    The place could give Basil and Cybil a run for their money and I am not kidding when I say it. From running out of plates at breakfast to changing the way the breakfast buffet operates – halfway through a breakfast service. No beer in the bar, but there is in the restaurant and the staff are running back and forth. Marco Pierre White appeared to suddenly detach himself from the restaurant practically overnight and now the room service menu is the restaurant menu. Front desk staff are at times incapable of leaving a tab open for food/drinks so you have to pay as you go meaning your F&B doesn’t attract points, depending on who you get at reception they may or may not know what IHG Rewards is nevermind Plat or Spire.

    There was a GM appointed at the end of last year and she appeared to making a really good go of trying to sort things out and there was improvement, however it looks like she has also disappeared.

    On saying all of that the rooms are nice, every one that isn’t a twin has a Kingsize bed and at 5k a night it’s worth it and depending on which staff are working you could be pleasantly surprised.

    If paying cash I recommend the Best Western in the town centre or the Premier Inn both offer better service and better consistency.

    • Sorry my post was in reply to James67s about Dumfries. It’s too early on a Sunday morning for me.

      • Aye Chris, that HI Dumfries gm is also now gone, new guy in place.

        Stayed v recently, maybe it’s low season now but things seem to have stabilised though spire recognition continues to be poor.

        Mpw deal was losing them money so disengaging. Pictures slowly being replaced by local artists.

        Back again for business trip so great to see it on the list!

        • It’s a real shame as it has the potential to be bloody good hotel. The setting cannot be beat, it’s lovely.

          Not sure why they can’t keep managers. Location? It’s remote but not that remote. I have spoken to the owner personally after one particularly bad visit and that was an experience and a half that ended up at IHG corporate so it is possibly dealing with above that is the problem. It’s a shame Tracy has left as she was really nice and did seem to finally taking the place forward.

          Ps as it’s the same lot as Darlington which was on the last PB list keep an eye out for exec rooms being released as they did release them for there. From what I gather from speaking with the owner it is someone at their head office that sets the rates and manages availability rather than on the property.

  10. What's the Point says:

    I had a look round the HI Bali Benoa in September when we were staying just up the beach at the Conrad.
    Although the lobby+pool area was a bit quiet (off season) so felt a bit eerie, the hotel was immaculate and everything was brand new. I think it only opened up this year.
    From my quick wander round, this hotel looks a bargain at just 5,000 points a night.
    There is however very little around the area to walk to, but taxis are cheap.

  11. Nick Burch says:

    The Holiday Inn Express Lille is in a good location for a weekend break. 15 minutes walk from Lille Europe station, or 1 minute from Republic Beaux Arts metro station. It’s right round the corner from the big art museum (Palais des Beaux Arts), 10 minutes walk from the Gare St Sauveur big free art gallery, the metro will take you out to Roubaix to the Piscine art museum, and there’s a few more museums in the city too! You’re a 5 minute walk from the shops, under 10 minutes from the main square with the great buildings, and under 10 minutes from the City Hall with the tower you can climb. Only slight downside is it’s a 20-25 minute walk up to the old town, which has loads of great bars and restaurants, but for the lazy 1 stop on the metro then bus will get you there!

  12. Slightly off topic but what’s the thoughts on Egypt holidays at the moment? Was considering combo of Cairo/Sharm but bit hesitant due to the political situation.

  13. Could I advise on whoever has a stay at the CP Heythrop Park that the local public house in the village of Church Enstone only 2 minutes drive is worth a visit for the real ale, food and service. I went last year when stopping at the CP.
