Having driven past this hotel for many years I have finally had the chance to stay here for a few nights on a business trip. The entrance foyer is impressive when you enter. the reception staff very pleasant and had my booking all prepared.
The room was very similar to other Holiday Inn rooms, clean and tidy with all the usual, iron, ironing board, hair dryer reasonable size wardrobe. reasonable size bathroom with shower over bath (plenty of water pressure for the shower) plenty of good quality towels. There was no dressing gowns, basic complimentary bath foam, shampoo and soap.
Air con in the room, fridge and safe, fridge stocked with one bottle of still mineral water (missing on first night). Excellent internet connection and a big enough desk area for laptop and working on. A flat screen TV. Great soundproofing I was able to watch the A66 that was nearby however without the noise.
Breakfast staff very welcoming in the morning with a good selection of food, can especially recommentd the scrambled egg which was very good. I had a meal in the bar on one evening, a good menu choice quickly served and very well prepared.
The Gym and swimming pool are at the side of the car park, with changing rooms, complimentary towels and good facilities, nice sized swimming pool
Altogether a most enjoyable visit and I would not hesitate to book here again.
