I booked this hotel, following a week at the Hilton nearby. I am very unimpressed with the room, food and incorrect information provided on the website.
I booked a double smoking room while on a business trip, i arrived at the hotel and checked in. I was not informed that my room preference would not be met, and when i enquired i was told that the hotel had now changed and there was no longer any smoking rooms at all. While i appreciate this has changed, i am unhappy that i was not informed on check in and that the call centre and website are still selling this as a hotel with smoking rooms. If I had known I would have stayed at the Hilton.
I have stayed in Holiday Inn's throughout the country and this has been the first that I would not go back to. The breakfast is disgusting and the scrambled eggs are the most watery that I have ever come across. I also ate in the restaurant and was outstanded that they are unable to cook scampi correctly.
The only bonus is that the room was clean and the bed was comfortable, although not having any form of wardrobe or ironing facilities while on a business trip is not useful.
While I am booked in for a further 3 nights, I would rather do the 150 mile commute then stay another night in that hotel
