“lovely stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

room was clean, tv had all channels. bathroom was well stocked and very nice. food was expensive but excellent fresh good quality produce.
pool was very clean and big enough.
drinks from the bar were overpriced, a pint was £4.
so make sure you take enough money for luxurys whilst there.
staff were nice and helpful.

Room Tip: i booked double room, very quiet.

We tried the place out for new years eve. The areas given over to the evening were drab and unwelcoming and no effort had been made to decorate for the occasion. The remaining Christmas decor was token only and poor.The food was surprisingly unremarkable and basic to say the least, The main course was very much like my old school dinners - but not quite as good, and there was neither gravy nor sauce with the very dry vegetables. The bread rolls were forgotten and served after we'd finished the soup. We also found most of the staff to be unhelpful and miserable and clearly didn't want to be there. Some popular alcoholic drinks were unavailable and those that were, were extremely expensive.There was also a rude comment from the staff regarding a reqest for Jagermeister.
We were on the premises for six hours but did not take a room so can not comment on the accomodation. We had a great night, but that was entirely down to us and in no way attributed to the Holiday Inn. It's not surprising that the evening was under attended. We will not be visiting again.

We stayed at this hotel for night on a late deal and it was really good. The room was a twin with 2 double beds and it was clean and adequate. The breakfast was excellent and the staff at this hotel are just lovely, in particular the restaurant staff as nothing was too much trouble.
I would stay at this hotel again and a perfect location for getting onto the M6.

There isn't much choice of hotels in the area, so this is probably as good as it gets. The hotel is well-located for access to the M6 and Stoke-on-Trent, and the staff I met were professional and friendly. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. However, the rooms are very dated and the hotel charges £16 for 24 hours of internet access (hence only 2 stars for value overall). Moreover, Gold members of Holiday Inn's loyalty scheme (Priority Club) do NOT get free access, unlike Marriott, Hilton, and other large chains.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

I stayed overnight on business and found the hotel- despite a somewhat dated exterior to be up to the usual Holiday Inn standards and even better- the reason was the excellent staff who were very acommodating. I arrived quite late and check in was quick, and efficient. My room was clean comfortable, nice big bed and clean towels. The shower was also very good and the breakfast was excellent. I would recommend this hotel as an excellent place to stay if en route to the north west of the UK and is only a few minutes drive from Junction 15 of the M6.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the car park are quieter but all seem to be of a high standard. I got the impression...

This hotel is conveniently situated by the side of Junction 15 of the M6. It used to be a Forte Posthouse but for a while has been a Holiday Inn. The hotel looks and is rather tired and is in urgent need of updating. Having said that, it is a good place to stop to use the facilities (through the main door and turn left). We have sampled the food but it is less than impressive. The coffee is good but unless advised, a 10% Service Charge is automatically added as the staff advise that they MUST bring the coffee to the tables! We had to return our jug of milk this week as the black bits floating on the surface were not spotted by the staff, despite being extremely obvious on the white milk! In addition, some of the staff could do with going to classes to learn how to smile!!
