This turned out to be a good deal better than my (possibly faulty?) preconception that Holiday Inns are very standard and somewhat bland. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and Stella (the manager) is very 'hands-on' making sure that everything is as it should be. We started in the main building, but mentioned to Stella that we would have preferred to be in the Ferringhi Tower across the road for the balcony and sea view. The next morning, she had already made arrangements for us to move. Rooms in the Tower block are recently refurbished - very spacious, clean and well furnished - would recommend this of the two buildings.
Good selection available for breakfast; Restaurant menu looked OK although we didn't use it - we went to the Food Court a short way away, where there is a huge range of really good food and extremely good value.
