I think I am being very fair when I describe this hotel as being average. Basic room. Basic public areas. Basic buffet breakfast. We found the bed to be uncomfortable, but some may not. It seems to me that this place is in need of updating, with soundproofing to be top of the list and aircon to closely follow. We... More

We enjoyed our stay, as being in the area with no vehicle getting places was rather difficult and relying on taxis was slow. Maybe a hotel shuttle for an extra charge would be an idea. The bar and the food was lovely, couldn't fault it. Would also like to thank Sam and Sophie for being so friendly and helpful at... More

The hotel was ok but the negative points outweigh the good. Positive points: Good location Free swimming pool (no information provided about swimming pool until prompted) Generally good noise wise, three good nights sleep Negative points; Two different reception staff on two occasions (once when checking in and once when leaving) asking for an outstanding balance, even though this had...

Recently visited for 1 night, and was upgraded to an executive room. Clean, nice room, comfy bed, provided everything that we needed for the night. Had a drink in the bar, which had comfortable sofas in. Breakfast was self service, and it would have been nice to have a coffee pot for the table rather than try and attract the... More

It's hard to go wrong with Holiday Inn and this is a good example. Good location (just off the two main arteries which run through East Anglia), Rooms a decent size, well equipped and we slept well. Staff very friendly and helpful, a request for an extra pillow late at night was immediately dealt with (they brought it to our... More

From check in to check out I found the staff extremely friendly and co-operative. Sorting out my WiFi payment issue, repeated times my key needed re-programming (need to keep it away from magnets in my iPad case!) and generally dealing with my custom with a smile. The room was clean and comfortable and the curtains certainly kept out the light... More

Holiday Inn always delivers good value and our expectations are always fulfilled. Special accommodations are always made for our family of 4, and while the room (in particular bathroom) has not gotten bigger or nicer over the years, we appreciate the decently-priced 'family room'. Breakfast is satisfying -- although not luxurious -- and the indoor pool, sauna and gym clean... More

I have been staying at the hotel on and off for a few weeks now. On arrival, the staff are always helpful and courteous. The rooms are clean and comfortable, any problems I had (only one) was addressed in a timely manner. The restaurant is fine and any special dietary requirements can be solved by speaking to the head chef.... More

TV massive - taking up excessive desk space. Would be better wall-mounted. Standard lamp switch hidden under curtains. Bedside lamp switches confusing. One switch mot visible as hidden behind bracket. Corridor quite noisy during day and night. Impossible to manoeuvre a standard wheel-chair to desk and back as gap too narrow. Desk chair had dried-on food spilled on it. Sweetener... More
