Istayed at the Holiday Inn with my wife and our two teenage daughters just before Christmas. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived, as to be honest, having read some of the reviews on this site, I thought we we would be staying at the Bates Motel. This is a clean, modern, purpose built hotel, which, if not exactly central, is convenient to all transport links. The family rooms we stayed in was of a good size for London hotels and was clean, comfortable and modern. Anyone who thinks the rooms are small clearly hasn't stayed in the glorified guesthouses passing themselves off as Four Star hotels in central London. Check in was smooth and though we arrived well before check in time we were given our room straight away.
I am at a loss to understand some of the negative reviews posted here which seem to bear no resemblance to the hotel we stayed in. Didn't have time to try the leisure centre, though the pool looks a little small. Yes, we had to queue for breakfast, but it was no big deal. Apart from that very minor quibble, I can't honestly think of anything that I could complain about. If you are thinking of staying at the Holiday Inn King's Cross, all I can say is relax, and enjoy it!
