Stayed for one night, which seemed to correspond with the stay of many uni students, as I understand that there was a delay in the completion of their Uni dorms. Nevertheless, check in was efficient and firendly.
The bedroom was adequate and the bed was comfortable.
Apart from vending m/c or takeaways, there was no lunch/dinner available. There were 4 restaurants within walking distance and as such, the lack of available food at the hotel is not too much of an issue.
Breakfast was as per usual holiday inn fare, boring and predictable.
Check out was a joke. The elderly, eastern european male receptionist was insisting that I enter my bank pin number, but was failing to tell me how much I was expected to sign off! Finally, a fellow colleague sorted it out. The saturation of eastern europe staff at many hotels has caused endless misunderstandings and as such, the Holiday Inn should ensure that there is at least one British born and bred staff on hand at the reception counter, especially at check in/out times.
