Scruffy hotel in awful location only good for one night before or after a flight. You are lucky if you survive the traffic as you leave or enter local drivers seem to have a death wish. Traffic noise all night. Badly in need of renovation. Staff on restaurant all seemed to be agency and didn't know what they were doing.... More

Clean and comfortable. The hotel is an ideal spot for a combined bed and parking with Airpark only a couple of minutes away. We paid £160 for one night and 14 days parking. Excellent wifi and food served both in the bar and in the restaurant. Bar prices as you would expect.

Eventually found the hotel as directions given (post code) was wrong. Typical 60s/70s build nice large lobby, which had a weird musty smell when I was checking in. Female staff member was pleasant enough but failed to upswell breakfast ( not a bad thing I guess) but also just handed me the key and I had to find the lifts... More

So last time I was here I said never again but sometimes when travel is booked for you then you can end up back where you don't want to be. About a mile away I thought "oh no" when I realised I was heading along a familiar road. But, perhaps, they had spent some money since last here? NO!!!!! Horrible... More

Rooms are very clean and comfortable, though on the small size. The gym is large and very well equipped. The food is of very good quality and service in the restaurant is excellent. In particular the customer service is excellent, all the staff in the hotel are very pleasant and helpful. The location is picturesque, though there is really nothing... More

I recently visited while taking part on a 400 mile cycle challenge. Upon checking in we were told the restaurant was fully booked and we would have to go elsewhere. The barman suggested we ordered pizza to the hotel, the restaurant manager then said they could take our order and seat us within around 45minutes. This was at 7:40pm. I... More

A good average business hotel with a good service level from the staff. The rooms aren't at the latest upgraded level, they need an update, but they are not bad, just a bit old in style. An absolute awesome gym facilities, a very nice surprise, lots of machines, no waiting etc. thumps up.

I stayed at the holiday inn for a friend's wedding nearby. The room was lovely and hotels was easy to find. However the service was horrendous. We arrived back at the bar late and were told it was open 24 hours. Penelope (the bar hostess and receptionist) arrived at the bar slow and uninterested. She had a terrible attitude, was... More

Booked for 3 nights, checked out after 2nd night. We could put up with the tiny room, the lack of wastepaper bin, the rubbish left by a previous guest in the only drawer and the fact that the bathroom bin was not emptied at all or the tissues replenished. However, we could not tolerate the overbearing aroma of sewage. Staff... More
