Another convenient side of the road location for an en-route stop-over. Everything you would expect out of a Holiday Inn Express, rooms are clean & comfortable.
However; internet speed was very
poor, unsuitable for even a basic Skype call, as I first noticed. After having a word at reception, I was given a complimentary fast access voucher. The speed was OK, but the service kept dropping out, so no good for VPN users. This was a pity as I could not stream the new Top Gear episode. Even worse; I could not send video to the in-room TV, the HDMI input is unavailable on the hotel TVs.
The ability to stream a video & access the TV HDMI input is needed to make up for there only being one TV station in English – there is only so much BBC world news that you can watch – never mind, at least it wasn’t CNN. On a positive side, this was the best Holiday Inn Express breakfast I have EVER encountered! [Less]
