With budget hotels I suppose something has to give and for the Holiday Inn it is the breakfast.
The Pros - On-site parking, close to night-life, late check-out (noon), clean rooms, efficient reception staff.
The Cons - The breakfast was the worst I have had in any hotel - no soda bread, potato bread, fried eggs, black pudding or marmalade. Tea/coffee all from machines. Cheapest sausages money can buy. I've seen other hotels cater breakfast for more people with less staff and at a similar price. I also don't like have cleaning products sprayed in my vicinity when trying to eat. The bed was a little small which was fine for us but may be an issue for larger folk. I get the feeling the bread toaster doesn't do the environment any good and the corridor lighting is OTT.
