Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John1B Relaxing / Comfortable Value Stay with Helpful Staff
Relaxing / comfortable hotel with helpful friendly staff. Good value with basic facilities and tasty breakfast. Good standard but dated and need of a upgrade with pool / fitness area like other Holiday Inn sites.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveT57 An extremely pleasant stay
This is a copy of what I've already posted on TripAdvisor
Once you've found the hotel (OK, I took the wrong exit from the M1), you find this strange oasis opf calmness and freindliness.
Strange? The entrance, bar, restaurant etc are in one building. The rooms, inluding several meeting rooms, are in another. You don't have to go outside because there's a bridge between buildings. Because the site is on a slope the level 1 rooms are on the level below reception. It's not a hi-rise. There are just the 2 floors. If you are placed in the room furthest away (Room 117, I know, I was there) it is about 200 metres from reception. It is also very quiet, as I suspect, is 217 above it.
The "restaurant", whilst having good tasty and varied meals, is styled more as a decent cafe. Breakfast has a very good and tasty set of alternatives. Nothing exciting, this is a Holiday Inn. But good wholesome grub.
The serving staff at both meals are so very friendly, and assist in helping ensure that you get the meal that you want - well above the normal call of duty.
Reception staff are efficient and friendly. They ask how are, and actually make it look like they care.
I would like the model to be used across the brand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shadow81 Great Staff make this a Good Place to Stay
The hotel is a little tired and could do with an internal and external facelift - but the location is good - and the staff make up for the tired decor and facilities. Staff in the Lounge area make sure that your needs are well looked after. The lounge menu food and drink is good and reasonably priced and again the staff ensure that the service is efficient and friendly without being obtrusive. All in all a great place for a business meeting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BB2504 Home from home really
As a regular at the HI M1 J25. It was the same as usual and bit like home from home.
Unfortunately no upgrade, but was told this was because they were very busy and to be fair the place was packed.
Had specials for evening meal and they were both fantastic.
It was very good to see Natalia as got a promotion. Well deserved for all the years she has worked there. Also Irene at breakfast was friendly and very efficient in her service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yus54 Really good Stay
First time we have been here and it was a definitely good stay for us both. We have stayed at a number of hotels over the last few years and this was a nice experience. All round a grand stay and we will return when we get the chance.
