We attended a lovely wedding over the Easter weekend at the Holiday Inn. Every aspect of the wedding was perfect. The food, the service, the venue, were all of a very high standard.
However on returning to our room at 11pm - after a very long and happily exhausting day - we found that another wedding reception was continuing very, very close to our room. Just a few meters away, across a small court yard we had music blaring. It was just people enjoying themselves, I understand that, but why have guest rooms so close to such loud noise? I am talking just a few meters away!! The music went on until about 1.15am and we just had to wait until it stopped. This was not good value for money and had we known the deal, we would have driven home.
I filled out a survey expressing my concerns and asked to be contacted by the hotel - that was a month ago and as yet, no one has called - that is extremely disappointing. I do appreciate that this was a Saturday night and obviously, things would be different during the week, but it would've been good PR if someone had taken the time to call me as requested.
I will not use the Holiday Inn again and feel let down and not particularly valued, by this large international company.
