OK, so I have been here before. I remembered it was a little tired but the location is good for business so there again. As a positive staff very warm, welcoming and friendly. New bathrooms with good showers. But the rooms are tired. I can accept that - rate was not bad. But what I cannot accept is a pitiful... More

Stuart on reception was friendly and helpful-a credit to your hotel. However the hotel lets him down. Radiator in the room was falling apart, windows need replacing and a good clean. Room service was good, as was breakfast You can tell the staff are trying to do their best. Big bosses at holiday inn need to organise a refurbishment for... More

Arrived at the hotel to a shocking view of the outside and worrying what the inside might look like. Reception is drab looking and when I saw the Christmas Present type Christmas Tree I was appalled. Met by a very chatty gentlemen who would have presented better if his shirt was white and ironed and not grey and creased. Couldn't... More

It would great!! However this is a typical Holiday Inn that you find anywhere in the world. The old fashion wood bedroom furniture that you need two burly blokes to move. To be helpful someone had labelled the light switches with handwritten stickers - not that professional. The food was OK and the breakfast menu adequate. There is not a... More

Stayed for one night whilst on business nearby. I use Holiday Inns quite a lot and found this one to be no better or worse than most others. The room was clean and tidy and the bathroom had been refurbished to include the walk in shower in place of the bath. The room did not have air conditioning and was... More

I know these places aren't the height of luxury, but sometimes they feel tired, fusty or just downmarket. However, this one was clean and fresh, and I suspect the bathrooms have just been refitted as the shower was pure heaven: sparkling, spacious and powerful. the reception staff couldn't have been more friendly, and the food next door was pretty decent...
