I stayed here with my husband and our 6 year old son for one night in February after visiting INTECH science museum and planetarium, we booked a family room without breakfast which came to £68.
The hotel was very easy to find although I will add if you're coming at night those roads are very twisty turny! Lots of car parking and was in clear view of INTECH which was good for us. We grabbed our bag and went to check in. The lobby is large and open with an information table on local attractions. It's a very neutral tone in the place and nicely lit, overall I was impressed by first impressions.
We were welcomed by a couple of very friendly reception staff and my son was given a colouring in book welcome pack which he was chuffed to bits with (although he was a bit let down when he saw it was Peppa Pig seeing as he was a 6 year old boy!) and we made our way to our room.
The corridors were clean and uncluttered with an ice machine (which is literally ALL my son looks for in a hotel) and shoe shiner and we found our room easily. Nice spacious, decent sized room as in keeping with the decor of the hotel. Very funky green light under the sink in the bathroom plus quite possibly THE nicest, deepest bath I have ever used in my life. If anyone who works for holiday inn reads this and wants to send me on I would be eternally thankful! The usual tea and coffee making facilities were supplied as were toiletries and basic cable tv.
We unpacked then popped down to the bar for a quick drink, it was pretty quiet and we were served straight away by another cheerful member of staff...honestly it makes such a difference after travelling to speak to a friendly face and everyone here we encountered was so nice and smiley :)
After our planetarium show we made our way up to our room which was absolutely freezing-it was cold- thankfully the thermostat had clear instructions and heated up a treat really quickly. We got ready for bed, my son had a camp bed which was pretty comfy and a good size...he didn't fall out in the night like he usually does in hotel camp beds so it passed his test! Our bed was lovely too and suprisingly roomy, I also really appreciated the choice of soft and hard pillows!
All in all we had a great nights sleep, I would have given a 5 rating if it had not been for a party taking place that night which, although wasn't incredibly loud I could still hear a faint bassline from the disco which was kinda irritating...it didn't go on late though.
We would definitely stay here again, friendly, modern, spotless (kudos to the cleaners, honestly our room was pristine) and nice location....nice work holiday inn! :D
