The location of this hotel is fantastic, right next to the shops, bars, restaurants, tourist attractions etc. I think Holiday Inn may take advantage of this with its prices as the hotel itself is a little on the shabby side!
Our room 319 was a 'family room' for three people on a girly weekend and therefore cost us more money than a normal double room...even though the only difference was someone had to turn the old fashioned sofa into an uncomfortable bed! The UPVC around the window had brown stains around it and black mold in the corners...bed was a bit lumpy and moved across the floor when you sat on it! Breakfast was sparse in the morning. However the bathroom was modern and clean. Overall if it wasn't for the location of this hotel we would have been highly disappointed!
