We attended a conference very near here and found all the staff very friendly, helpful, and working hard. The room was spotless and the bed and pillows were most comfortable. There was absolutely no noise from the motorway and we slept soundly. The breakfast was plentiful and full of variety. We would definitely stay here again.

It is good to hear that you also enjoyed our free breakfast. Hopefully we can welcome you again soon Kind Regards Samantha More

We only stayed one night on New Years Eve. We were invited to my brother's for New Year but he didn't have space for us to stay, hence the Holiday Inn. We didn't come back rolling drunk, but did come in after midnight, having checked in earlier, which wasn't a problem (but there were a few people of the rolling... More

Stayed over before a meal in town. Had lunch (pizza - which was better than some restaurants!) and played pool in the bar. Receptionist was very friendly and engaged in conversation - which is rare nowadays! Rooms are the normal express standard - clean, comfy and welcoming.

For a budget hotel, I was really impressed. My room was a good size and very clean. There's a bar and lounge area which has a pool table. Breakfast had a good range of cereals, teas, coffees etc as well as the three hot options. Overall my stay was quiet and relaxed. The only downside was the location which is... More

This is really a sad hotel. OK if you're travelling on a budget maybe this is a valuable option. But if you're on a business trip it's really a sad place to spend a night on your own. There's not much to do in the surroundings. The food at the restaurant is terrible. Overall it's not very clean. Rooms are... More
