Stayed at this hotel 13/12/2014 to 14/12/2014 and I must say it is a decent hotel to stay in. I booked two rooms for my family and they were both very clean. There's not a lot happening in Bolton so can't really say too much about the location. We hired a taxi (8 seater) to the Trafford Centre in Manchester... More

A clean but aging hotel. The staff are very helpful and nice. The rooms were clean but were in need of an upgrade, they are showing their age. The bed was very soft and tired too. The bar prices were very extreme to say the least. We attended a Christmas party there and don't consider the £35 price tag value... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for a function that was held in the Cloisters in the hotel. The bedroom was clean but showing its age, and the bed was uncomfortable!!! The Christmas Party function, although very well organised was not good value for the £35 per head charged, 3 small courses and no coffee unless purchased from the bar!... More

A typical Holiday Inn with the usual decor and nice restaurant. Finding the front door based on satnav is a little tricky - it directed me to a car park at the rear of the hotel. Car parking is limited but otherwise this is everything one would expect of a city centre Holiday Inn. The staff were friendly and the... More

I have been staying at this hotel on and off since April 2014 (approximately 4 months worth of stays). The hospitality which has been shown by all the staff at this hotel has been great. The warm welcoming which you receive from the moment you walk in right the way through to the check out. The reception girls are always... More

OK - it's modern and not hugely characterful; BUT it is quiet, comfy; with very helpful staff. And the room is recently decorated I'd say......really no compalints; serviceable and comfortable. Free wi-fi if you sign for free loyalty membership; wake up call available

My partner and I spent two nights at the Holiday Inn, Bolton, to attend a funeral. Our twin room was perfect in every way, including being absolutely quiet. The compact bathroom with the option of shower or bath (all in one, not separate) had very hot water, which was a little tricky to regulate consistently for the shower, so take... More

Stayed one night on business, had to book a family room which wasn't a bad thing - it was huge! Staff were friendly & helpful. Sadly nachos ordered from room service were not particularly nice, had quite obviously been microwaved. Wifi (free as I am Priority Club member) was adequate but not particularly fast.

We stayed here for 3 nights last weekend for a running event I was taking part in in Bolton. The hotel looked nice, good location and had a pool and sauna so we chose to stay at the Holiday Inn. I think that the room rates were a little expensive, especially as no breakfast is included, and you have to... More
