Booked a two night stay before and after an important away day (report to follow). Lot of the car park underwater..so choose my space carefully...(and had to pay for it too!! * I note others didnt get charged..so naughty!!) Easy check in. The Reception stored my diabetes medication for me...no fuss..quiet efficiency..true Holiday Inn style...
Room itself...only partly made up..sadly lacking in attention to detail. The room was for a disabled person, with plenty of grab rails in the bathroom...and a shower wet area rather than a bath...(and I knew I was going to want a 5 minute soak in the bath after my travelling day...). Bed very comfy...and I slept reasonably well on both nights. Choice of pillows.
Menu for evening meal..was very restricted to me..in that I am Coeliac and diabetic..so safe food is an essential for me. Could have choice of two items only. Both would have been far too much for me. Back to hotel on the second night far too late than for any food...so I was prepared.
Shuttle bus to take me to airport and collect me on return was easy and prompt. £3 each journey.
No replenishment of the tea and milk..and as I was so very tired after my away day...didn't really want to chase back downstairs...but did so...
This morning, breakfast very limited. No suitable cereals..or bread. Sausages are usually a no-no...same scrambled..so I asked about the baked beans. "They are from 3663" ..which is a hotel catering organisation. Gives no indication for the ingredients. I ended up with a little fruit..a half glass of fruit juice....and a yogurt. Not enough for the diabetic me..when I am about to drive 50 odd miles back to Yorkshire.
Not easy to find safe suitable food on a Sunday morning at 8am....but I had no choice.
I am in process of taking the issue of the gluten free food up with Holiday Inn Management. I am booked to stay at another venue in January...and intend to take my own food....at least I will be certain of availability.....
