“Sunday bargain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for one night at a bargain price. Reception was efficient and our room was clean and comfortable. Complimentary water and orange juice and chocolate were provided and a full buffet breakfast was £5 per person! Use of the well equipped gym and pool across the car park was included. Parking was free.

was not greeted on arrival but starred at by surly receptionist. When asked if I will be using the minibar I looked up and she added "its only a question" !.

Got to our room which was as requested at the end of a hall but the bed mattress was so old and soft my partner and I rolled into the middle of the bed. The duvet was some cheap polyester thing was makes people sweat as the body cant breathe so we had a poor nights sleep and the bathroom lighting was insufficient and hard t see in the mirror as its so dark.

Room Tip: good location for Richmond but will stay in a b&b next time

Arrived mid afternoon and the welcoming staff quickly checked us in to our room. This was a half way point hotel for us between Scotland and Nottinghamshire. And it us not too far away from some historic towns.
A lovely large room with mini bar. Excellent range of pillows, air con, large tv, great bathroom.
Had dinner in hotel bar, something on menu not available but staff arranged for something not on the menu to be cooked instead.
Great breakfast in morning, full English.
This has been one of the better hotels we have stayed in during our UK holiday over the past 10 weeks and great value. Thank you Holiday Inn.

We chose this hotel as a half way house stopover from Southsea (Portsmouth) to Scotland. Its a large hotel with an equally large free car park. On entering the building we were very pleasantly surprised by the size and cleanliness of the reception hallway. we were met by a happy reception member of staff who checked us in promptly, on reaching our room, another surprise, the widest bed weve ever slept on, the room was large airy and very clean and the air con welcome as it was hot. After our 6 hour trip from Southsea we were both looking forward to a well deserved drink in the bar which was spacious very comfortable with happy bar staff. As it was now early evening we decided to book a table in the Italian restaurant (You could also eat in the spacious bar area if you wished, they had a very extensive menu) Pleasant surprise number three, the food from starter to main to pudding was as my wife puts it the best meal shes has experienced in this type of hotel it was beautifully presented and cooked perfectly and served by happy smiley staff again. To us this hotel was a brilliant find and we are very satisfied with all aspects of our stay and we will definately use this hotel again on our next trip up north. As for the staff well done, it is so nice to see happy friendly staff.

Room Tip: We were on a high floor, air con was silent, but they could be silent on all floors.
