This place has many pluses but quite a few minuses. The foyer is impressive and the staff are lovely and friendly. Every member of staff we saw had a smile and a hello which was great. However the toilets off reception need an upgrade as they were less than impressive. We stayed in room 238 which was ok but once... More

Front door doesn't inspire, and the main foyer is a bit odd with such contrasts of lighting... but receptionist was helpful and efficient and within minutes I was in my room which was a bit DIY-furniture and not exactly luxurious but for one night... it turned out to be fine, the bed was good, pillows were good, shower was ok...

We were part of a National Trust tour. Manager came onto the coach [50 guests] to welcome us to the hotel. Slick luggage system. Staff made everyone most welcome & nothing was too much trouble though they were busy with a wedding. The evening meal was the best we had on our holiday. Comfortable room & enjoyable breakfast. Great overnight... More

The problem with hotel brands are they are not consistent This Holiday Inn ranks below the newer Express brand Good just off motorway location but - drab bar with an odd selection of drinks - some very loud drunk guys at either end of the bar - two ratted Scots and some belching northerners playing pool! Cavernous entrance hall with... More

We stopped off here while on a long drive from Aberdeen to Poole, as we wanted to have quick tour of the Peak District en route. Check in was quick and cheery, and we got a good large room on the 2nd floor - it even had a nice view over the surrounding area. There was a wedding and dinner... More

We stayed here for 2 nights recently as we and other family members were attending a funeral. Arriving past midnight on the Thursday, having picked up my sister-in-law from Manchester airport we were greeted by an extremely friendly night manager who, despite the lateness of the hour asked whether we wanted a drink (or two), nothing was too much trouble...

I have stayed here before and I like this hotel - the reception, the bar, the staff....really nice and the rooms are nice too. On this occasion though, I didn't have a good overnight stay because the sound travelled excessively from the adjacent room. The noise of their TV was overwhelming but it wasn't just that, otherwise I might have... More
