In October last year (2011} I was sent by my employers to work in Preston for 6 months, the agreement was that I would stay in preton from Sunday evening returning to the South east on Friday evening.
My employers (a Government department) use Expedia for hotel bookings so I left the arrangements up to them and they selected the Holiday Inn.
I enjoyed staying here, the hotel provides car parking which was important to me and from day one I was impressed with the staff from the porters to the duty managers everyone of them was cheerfull and very helpfull.
My double room was comfortable and kept clean.
I can not priase the breakfast enough, plenty of choice and guest can eat as much as they like.
My only negative is that the evening meals were quite expensive but there are plenty of restraunts close by including Indian and Chinees and a trtaditional pub at the end of the road.
The hotel is situated opposite the bus station but i was not kept awake at night and the town centre is within walking distance.
I would reccommend this hotel to business travellers who want to relax after a gruelling day of meetings or to do extra work from the hotel.
I was not there at week-ends but I think that it would be a good base for couples and adult famalies but I did not get the impression that there wa much to do for young children.
I could have changed to a more expensive hotel but decided to stay put although a swimming pool would have been nice.
