One night at a perfectly clean, comfortable, functional hotel for a conference. The rooms are spacious and quiet (avoid the few ground floor rooms near the lifts and bar, though). I always like Holiday Inn's quirky FIRM and SOFT labels on the pillows - being a fan of firmer pillows this small touch is appreciated. Only wrinkle was my room... More

initially booked for just two nights but stayed three as was so relaxed, I couldn't get enough sleep on the super comfy mattress it was how I imagine sleeping on a cloud. Location... approx. 6 mins from the city centre but it seems as if your hundred miles away this hotel is in a very quiet location. ROOM....... immaculate, huge... More

I usually stay in the nearby Express but opted to stay in the Holiday Inn as the rate was almost identical. I checked in ans attempted in vain to get the receptionist to understand that my reservation, chargeable back to the company could include alcoholic drinks. This clearly shows dinner with drinks but as it did not specifically state alcoholic... More

I have stayed in this hotel a few times now whilst visiting the AECC, being able to walk next door to the Exhibition Centre as you watch the traffic at a standstill outside is huge benefit. The hotel is a bit dated but the rooms are very clean and have everything you need although the mattress is a bit soft... More

Granted it could do with a little updating in the rooms but bar and restaurant area were modern. Check in was smooth , reception staff very helpful. We paid a £2.50 supplement to have breakfast...

I'm still waiting for a refurb - the hotel is tatty, and the rooms need updating, with floor and wall stains and general wear and tear. On the other hand, you cannot beat the location if you need to be close to the AECC. The staff are fantastic - dedicated and caring - and make up for the poor state... More
