After a day of long flights and driving from Heathrow, my friends and I stayed overnight. The night manager graciously waited for us to check-in and served a beverage before closing up.
The breakfast hostess , Jamie, is a gem.
Service was expediant, first class and always with a wonderful smile.
A great sense of humour too!
An affordable and enjoyable overnighter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phoenix1612 Lovely stay
We stayed in the Holiday Inn as it was near a wedding we were due to attend. We stayed for two nights, on the first night we had a drink in the lovely bar and relaxed.
Really nice staff who were very chatty and friendly. The room was so comfortable.
Nice and quiet and very relaxing.
Both nights were equally as nice. The breakfast deal was good too. I liked that you didn't have to eat the buffet you can order other bits too. Had scrummy salmon and eggs.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Johner A 1 night stop over
I have used HI for over 20 years and was, until this year a platinum card holder (now Gold as I have retired).
This was a 1 night stopover.
Reception was fine, with a polite, friendly welcome.
The room was standard HI, but, with no opening windows and a constantly humming aircon, a good nights sleep did not appear to be on the cards.
We had to ask for the fan in the bathroom to be disconnected as the noise was intrusive.
Our main concern was, however, the dining experience.
Dinner; A Chicken Ceaser salad should consist of more than the chicken and lettuce that my wife received. The whole was topped with a sprig of something that we saw cut from the border outside the kitchen. Whats more worrying is that this sprig of something was completly dry when it reach us, so it was unwashed.
My sweet and sour pork was small and tepid. The rice was sticky and tepid.
Use hot plates for hot food, that way it is hot when it arrives at the table!
Breakfast; My wifes scrambled egg and salmon was a partially cooked omlete which was not the best and yet again, we watched the garnish being cut, only to find it unwashed on my wifes plate.
I ordered eggs benedict which arrived looking OK, but was missing the ham.
A good point to remember is; if it is not meant to be eaten, it should not be on the plate, but, if you insist, at least wash it first.
All in all a very poor example of hotel dining
