Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by edgy Poor initial reception.
I don't normally write reviews, but on this occasion I have to comment on the poor initial reception service that we received at this holiday inn.
After a 5 hours drive from Manchester on a Friday evening our initial reception was very poor. Being a platinum member and regular user of the Holiday inn group we usually know what to expect. On arrival the gentleman receptionists computer was playing up which was probably not helping, but on checking in we had to stand around for quite a long time juggling luggage whilst that problem was sorted, we then had to ask for the complimentary drink and snack voucher, ask for the internet access code, all of which are normally offered. There was never any recognition of us being priority club members and I have to say the initial reception was poor.
Thankfully through the rest of our week-end the ladies on the reception were exceptionally friendly.
The only other let down was that on a previous visit we had an excellent room at the front of the hotel, the room this time was at the back, smaller and overlooking the bins however it was to the same, very clean, standard.

Hi my stay was great the staff are very welcoming at reception (Chris & Debbie). And having drinks with Kevin is a great way of meeting staff and other guests that you wouldn't necessary meet.

Enjoyed our overnight stay and thanks to the staff who went the extra distance on arrival and then sorted out a suitable room for our party of eight to enjoy their meal in on a busy Saturday night.

friendly staff good service,
no restaurant you have to eat in the bar at very low tables, very uncomfortable. Also not a ideal area (corridor) to be eating in.
Dissapointing the hotel is becoming very tired looking and in need of lots of TLC. My advice would be to eat out on Bas vegas around the corner - better value for money and you can sit at a proper table and chair
