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.

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

Reception was well presented as was the front Bar and Lounge. The rooms were accessed from alongside the reception desk, upon entering the accomodation area you get the feeling of being in an old fashioned hospital, the white and cream corridors and white doors accessing each room looked rather sterile. The room itself was quite large, but the bathroom tiny... More

Dear Paul E, Thank-you for your review. I note your comments about your room. I am pleased you liked your bedroom, and I realise you found the bathroom a little small. Unfortunately I cannot alter the size of the bathroom, so we do ensure they are clean and well serviced. Thank-you also for your comments about the food, which I... More

The staff here are friendly and helpful, with a nice pool and good value breakfast. Like many Holiday Inns, this one is looking a little dated especially the bathroom and corridors. Good value for a Holiday Inn.
