This Holiday Inn is situated in a historic maritime environment on the water close to the National Waterways Museum. I can only imagine this place in the summer, with thriving boat life and activities.
The hotel itself was nice, modern and nice. We were greeted by a smiling professional staff, and immediately felt welcome and expected. That is a rear quality I can really appreciate! WiFi was free, but breakfast was not. However, if you order breakfast in the evening, it is offered at a reduced rate. Kids eat free.
We did not eat dinner at the hotel, but I looked at their menu, and it had a good variety of food. Judging from the crowd, it must have been a popular place. Breakfast was buffet style, but the food was presented well and the quality was good. The staff was attentive and kept my coffee mug full and our table clean. The view could have kept me there for hours, watching the canal barges entering the locks outside. Great!
I really liked this place and its historic location. I am sure I could easily spend days here without walking more than five minutes away from the hotel. Only minutes away by car is the Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet and the Blue Planet Aquarium. It is close to both Manchester and Chester. We will be back!
