Great location, great staff, great place to stay. Owner/Manager makes sure he knows the guests by working the floor each morning at breakfast to meet and converse with the guests even though he is a Yorkshireman who's hero is Geoff Boycott - Tony, you are fantastic and more of the Holiday Inn locations should take your lead.

We stayed here for two nights but only because it was convenient for the British Open Golf. Our room was pokey, dark and stank of smoke. The corridors also smelt of smoke which is very surprising considering how many years British hotels have been smoke free. It is clear that the carpets are old and have not been cleaned for... More

Good explanation given re Hotel's facilities. We had asked for a quiet room and were given one at the end of the ground floor corridor facing the garden.On arriving we could see a roped... More

Good sized clean rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Good choice for breakfast. American style diner, Shell garage, McDonalds in the same service area. Excellent choice for overnight stay or more if you are travelling along A55 or visiting North Wales. Free WiFi. It can be tricky to get to the hotel. If you do not have a sat nav, look... More

First of all I have to say that any staff we came in contact with we're friendly and polite. However the hotel itself was a huge disappointment for a Holiday Inn. The room we stayed in smelt of something ...old cigarettes or damp and mould. The carpet hadn't been hoovered so there were hair grips, old wrappers and dirt on... More
