sleeping in the UK is always a special experience. or you choose to go to the big chain hotels such as this Holiday inn, or you go for the more typical local hotels where it can be sometimes a great experience but also in many cases a disaster with old rooms, small showers and old beds where the springs are...

One is tempted to think that chains are never really going to be as good as independent hotels, so it is such a nice surprise when chains get it right. We stayed in the busy party season and both the room and the service were excellent. The check in was friendly and efficient and the room was excellent for the... More

My room had very loud and unpleasant buzzing noise coming from vents which woke me up and continued for about 10 minutes early in the morning totally disrupting my sleep and my day. Speaking to colleagues and by the response from the receptionist (who replied saying, they weren't aware it happened it that particular room) this is a recurring theme... More

An all round fantastic hotel in all catagories. However the parking isnt local even though they do offer you a discount at a local carpark it can still be a bit pricey. Also if you get a street side room it can be noisey and if you get a central room your view is the other towering walls of the... More

Saturday 6/12, 8pm, concierge gave bad wrong advice, the 3rd time! Despite being able to check internet for shopping hours and info, sent me on a long cold walk when shops have closed. Couldn't be bothered about welfare of guest. Also gave wrong n minimum info on Derby post office. I had expected more from front office personnel. Otherwise rooms... More

This is my second time staying in a holiday inn, the edinburgh one was fab and this one too, I didn't realise how good a company they are, staff in this branch were just wonderful , so helpful . The place was spotlessly clean, nice room, Comfy bed spacious room. , and great breakfast. Right next to the theatre.

Generally not a bad hotel but for any city centre hotel you would expect car parking to be at least close by, well here it definitely isn't! First of all you you can't find it and the post code leads you into a crazy one way system, even after phoning the reception it was like being on a treasure hunt.... More

Stayed for two nights in an executive room. Booked a month in advance and paid just over £150 for both nights. The executive room was very spacious with a separate sofa and tv area. The bathroom was small but well furnished. Excellent location close to the shopping centre and restaurants. The Gym is small but functional. Only negatives is the... More
