Taking a winter break with an early flight departure we decided to use a park, bed and breakfast deal. Had previously booked the nearby Hilton but was told that their breakfast did not start until 6am which was when we were due at the airport. So we chose the Holiday Inn who have a self service continental breakfast from 4 am, obviously responding to guests' needs. A room for three was made up with a double bed and sofa bed, spotlessly clean and the heating was fine with easily managed controls. We were pleased to see the courtesy tray with three cups and sufficient supplies for three of us. This would seem obvious but is an issue so often missed in hotels and is easily rectified but this shows the excellent service provided by this Holiday Inn. Well done housekeeping !
The reception staff were friendly and extremely helpful. We were aware that at our time of day the breakfast was continental but there was plenty of it and all fresh; cereals, yoghurt, fruit, bread with a toaster and croissants, plenty of jams etc and cheese. Tea, coffee and juice. Perfect for our needs at that time of day!Apparently the hot stuff comes out at 6.30 am and consists of eggs beans and sausage. Thanks to all the staff for an excellent stay and a really good deal.
