My room was clean, spacious, quiet and comfortable as were the public areas of the hotel that I used. The reception staff were friendly and welcoming. I mostly ate in the bar during my stay although the bar and the food is pricey - plus they got my order wrong one night. This wasn't a major problem as it was only a sandwich, but the 'couldn't care less' attitude of the barman wasn't great and he didn't have much of a table manner.
In addition, they charge about £15 for 24 hours internet use. I understand they're a business and have to make money but this is simply highway robbery! I pay that much *PER-MONTH* at home! Holiday Inn really should take lessons from some cheaper places that provide this sort of thing for free as a courtesy to their guests.
On the whole I would recommend Holiday Inn for business use, but I would consider somewhere else if I was paying myself.
