This is my 4th stay here and it has been another great stay. I am always greeted as a Gold card holder. When I booked in Angela on reception realised that my room would be affected by the noise from the next evening's Prom, so arranged with housekeeping to move me to a new room the next day, my bags...

Does this hotel meet IHG standards for a Holiday Inn? I wouldn't be surprised if it was rebranded as a "Best Western" or some other downmarket brand. The welcome was reasonably friendly, although I was not offered my points or a drink for being a IHG member and had to ask for them. Usually, Platinum are upgraded. The room I... More

I booked to stay here as it was advertised as a 4 star and my usual hotel in Bolton was full... a colleague familiar with the hotel said it was ok. I arrived at check in around 5pm. The check in/Reception Manager was very professional and efficient, there were a few people waiting in the queue and she checked us... More

Very comfortable. Pleasant and helpful staff (reception & restaurant). Room clean & warm. Pretty central (20 mins walk to the uni). Decent, pleasant interior. Typical urban location....but quiet; no particular views. Food decent; no complaints - (nice cooked) breakfast. 2 areas for improvement! 1. Would be helpful to have access to desktop (to do e-mails etc) 2. (My fault but)... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn last weekend. I had the worst night sleep. I could hear cars and people from outside (we were on 2nd floor and I had ear plugs on). I could hear people above me walking about in heels. Items were dropping onto the floor. I rang to complain about the noise to the receptionist who said... More
