We needed to escape from family life for a couple of days so I used my Reward points to book a room. I had an email confirming the booking and then I had another asking me whether I wanted to submit a request to upgrade if it was possible on arrival. I did. The hotel is easy to find off... More

Stayed here for a wedding at a group rate, so don't know about value. The thing that impressed me most was the helpfulness of the wait staff in the restaurant, who went out of their way to make sure everyone was well looked after. This is a family oriented hotel, and I saw lots of cases of the staff helping... More

I stay here quite a bit as it's convenient for the office. Fairly standard holiday inn, with good leisure facilities. Unfortunately the restaurant menu is the standard HI one and is pretty bland although I think the chef does his best. Rooms are clean and spacious but the hotel must be one of the last in the world that hasn't... More

I am pleased to read that you enjoy the friendly team and Spirit Health Club facilities. We are very much looking forward to offering a new... More

Upon arrival I was not greeted but asked if I was "base level". With translation I realised this meant "was I the lowest form of IHG member?" This was a unique greeting at a Holiday Inn and perhaps a taste of the rather mediocre experience to come. On booking I had asked for a quiet room - the one we... More

Lovely welcome especially the glass of wine which went down well after a 5 hour drive. Room was large, comfortable and clean. The only down side was the room was a little dark. Helpful reception staff. Enjoyed quick dip in the pool. Over all a pleasant stay.

We'd a really nice welcome from the young man on reception, wifi codes, explanation of booking breakfast to get reduced rate, kids eat free, etc. Our family room was larger than the average family room (double bed plus 2 single sofa beds) but a little dark, some stronger lights needed. Breakfast was the standard Holiday Inn buffet; food was hot,... More

I stayed here for a work trip and would stay again. From the moment we arrived the lady on reception was welcoming and helpful. The room was spacious and very clean and the pool area with sauna, steam room and jacuzzi were fantastic. I pay £85 a month to go to a virgin gym which is quite run down and... More

We had advised the hotel that we would be checking in late, following a ferry crossing from France. The hotel was busy, with a number of parties taking place. The reception staff were welcoming and friendly and offered us a very welcome glass of wine. The room was clean and comfortable, and well 'sound proofed', we heard nothing of the... More

when we walked through the entrance doors, the hotel looked modern, bright & inviting. However that modern finish doesn't continue to the rooms, our room was tired dull, with mildew in the bathroom. The Food menu was very disappointing, and was more a lunch menu, sandwiches, burger and chips type fare. having stayed at the Holiday Inn and Rochester 3... More
