This is a hotel that tries to please, and succeeds, at least it did for us. An example: if you're meeting someone, you can get coffee served in the downstairs lounge area. We stayed two nights to include attending a wedding and got special rates. Had dinner before the wedding day and it was excellent. The menu is unpretentious but... More

stayed here for my cousins wedding nov 2013. Checking in took a matter of minutes and the staff were lovely and helpful during the duration of our stay.

Not what we expected from a holiday inn. Got so much more than we expected, staff are all so helpful, room was perfect, nothing was a problem. We will definitely be returning in the near future. Beautiful secret garden to have a wee afternoon drink in and use of the ballentyne spa/swimming pool. Perfect few days away, so relaxing. Can't... More

Nice hotel. Plenty of parking and good check in. Very good food. Set menu or a la carte. Staff very pleasant and not intrusive. Big public spaces and plenty of seats. Descent sized room and clean. Great for a quick trip.

Weekend stay with family for a wedding. Very nice large family room - lots of space and reasonably well equipped. (Toiletries fixed to the wall which I don't like, especially when one of the containers is empty! But these were supplemented by additional ones, so maybe management has listened to other complaints?) Hotel itself is also fairly decent. Staff were... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times and, on the whole, it's what you would expect of a IHG hotel. Staff on the front desk were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable. However, and I guess this is a personal preference, the bar has gone downhill in my opinion. The Stella has been taken out and now there is... More

Lots of space so we did not feel cramped, especially space to walk around still put our bags down. The bathroom was good, very light, nice powerful hot shower.
