I have been staying at this hotel over several years because of its convenient beach location with wonderful sea views generally at competitive room rates. The hotel has recently been refurbished offering a high standard of decoration and cleanliness. The rooms are also well equipped with flat screen TVs, fridges and microwaves. Unfortunately whilst I have no criticism of the condition of the hotel sadly the restaurant has always let this Holiday Inn down, it’s always empty, which means it lacks atmosphere but more importantly it’s a pretty good sign that guests are finding better places to eat in the vicinity. I have never seen a buffet breakfast being offered so by the time you choose individual items from the menu such as an orange juice, a coffee, some cereal then perhaps some cooked eggs and toast you are getting a bill for $25 that’s not cheap especially when you are with the kids! The service is not great either. Much the same for dinner, limited menu, very bland when it finally arrives and leaves you regretting eating there, again not particularly good value and the slow inattentive service does not compensate for the lack of good quality food. God help them if it was ever busy.
This criticism of the restaurant is not intended to put people off using this hotel but is aimed at the hotel management to improve the quality of their food, their menus, restaurant service staff and prices then they might encourage guests to eat there. It’s not difficult to see why some restaurants are popular and others fail. Come on Holiday Inn sort it!
