Typical Holiday Inn Express. Not the worst one of this chain I've stayed at. The building is quite new and modern. The bar areas, reception and restaurant are all fairly pleasant. The rooms are small and basic but clean.
Biggest gripe I have with these hotels are the poor quality beds, and this one was no exception. I had a double room, which had a very small, incredibly uncomfortable double bed. The mattresses just feel very cheap.
The heating/ventilation system in the room was poor. It consisted of a single electric wall mounted heater, no air-con (although that's not really a problem in January), which I find surprising for such a modern hotel.
The only other thing I found disappointing about this hotel was the quality of the draught beer. This is a bit of a theme with both standard and Express Holiday Inns. The beer (which is almost always either Stella or Becks Vier) tastes very watered down. To make matters worse, the beer at this particular hotel tasted like someone had bathed their sweaty feet in the keg.
