Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joodles Great stay
Pleasantly surprised with facilities offered for the price paid. Room comfortable and well furnished.Windows easy to open !!Adequate storage. Ample tea/coffee etc. Bathroom fine although shower rather weak and leaking a little from pipe/shower head. Breakfast fine with good choices. Service for dinner in restaurant was rather slow but the food was excellent for the price with lots of choice. Easy parking and newspapers to order. Welcome on arrival was lovely and inspired me to sign at once for loyalty scheme. First impressions really do count !! Will definitely use this chain in the future - in fact booked whilst there for another 3 nights next month.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Surreyite007 Relaxed ambiance, quiet suroundings
Large grassed areas around the Inn, although neat and well kept could be put to better use.
Perhaps more seating for guests to use - evening strolls after dinner, waiting for Taxis, Family pickups, additional transport etc. Or just to enjoy the weather!!
Although the main pickup takes place at the front of the Inn, the seating could prove invaluable for long stay guests who choose the grounds to relax in during the course of their stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dodo42 Great Service
The staff at this Holiday Inn are all excellent. I felt welcomed and comfortable from the moment I arrived.
The only slight surprise were the bar costs which I thought were outrageous @ £6.75 for a medium sized glass of sauvignon blanc! At least it stopped me from the usual 2 or 3 glasses I might have had!
That was the only fault in my short stay, other than that I found everything to be what I'd expect.
The conference facilities were excellent, and the Conference Manager was friendly, professional and very helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Nothing to complain about at all- Well done Holiday Inn!
From Receptionists to restaurant staff to cleaners, they were all pleasant, friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. In all our dealings with ALL staff they finished with the question, is there anything else I can help you with? We needed to have a 6.30 am breakfast to get to a graduation ceremony early and the buffet was well stocked, hot, varied and plentiful, service was quick and efficient. Our room was comfortable, clean and during a heatwave was airconditioned perfectly. We were able to sleep extremely well and wake up refreshed to enjoy our special occasion with our son who was also staying at the hotel. We booked our room on line and then made a second reservation for our son two weeks later and were please to find we had been given neighbouring rooms automatically. We would definitely stay here again and thoroughly recommend this hotel.
