I was disappointed to read your feedback regarding your stay at the hotel. I agree that the hotel is not the most attractive of buildings however it is not an office conversion it was built as a new hotel around the late 70s and as it is in the city centre we do experience slight noise on the ring way...

I can think of nothing warm and positive to say about this place. It was not particularly attractive, and parking facilities are minimal. I used the bar in the evening, and sat next to a very unpleasant individual who ate his (looked like) chicken curry with his fingers, scooping it up with his chips - grunting all the while. Now,...

I stayed here for 2 nights on business. The hotel isn't attractive and is a bit of 1980's office block sort of building. However, bar and restaurant are well appointed and my room (whilst a typical HI room) was clean and comfortable. The two things that set this hotel apart from other HI's are a) the staff and b) the... More

I've stayed at this hotel for a total of 10 nights throughout the year after block booking to attend a course run at the hotel's function suites. The good points include decent room sizes, a decent array of TV channels, reasonably comfortable beds and a convenient location for road and rail travel. The "could do better" points are inconsistency in... More

Stayed here for one Saturday night. Staff were helpful and check in was quick. We stayed on the top floor which was quiet. The room itself was very small and we had a tiny bathroom. We couldn't open the windows but there was very good air conditioning. We were rudely woken up at 7 am with an automatic alarm call... More

This was our first ever stay in a Holiday Inn and it won't be the last. We stayed one night on a stopover en route to Scotland. Room was very quiet despite overlooking a busy road junction and we slept well. Breakfast was superb - great choice of quality cooked items, lovely pastries and all very well presented. Probably the... More

I stayed at this hotel for the second time this year in early September and for three nights. The hotel is centrally located on the main ring road around Preston whilst the City Centre is less than a five minute walk.

I've stopped here at least 3 times now and always found the staff friendly and helpful. Parking is limited but you can pay £4 rather than £6 in the bus station car park next door if you speak to reception.
