Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Smirb Bed soft and uncomfortable
Bed not what I expected in a Holiday Inn. You can get soft medium and hard pillows but sadly there was only one option for the bed. Very soft and I kept rolling to the middle. Poor nights sleep and I woke with a sore back.
Hotel otherwise good and I enjoyed dinner, but let down badly by the bed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blown offshore! Comfortable and convenient
I stayed for 5 nights to attend a conference/exhibition at the AEEC next door. Overall, the hotel offers good value for money and is clean and professionally run. Considering that a lot of the customers are there for business, I was disappointed that the Wi-Fi was slow and unreliable. I found I had to log in from time to time and the speed is okay for general browsing, but if you have to access a remote computer (i.e. I work remotely on a computer in the USA through GoToMyPC) it was almost impossible and very frustrating. There was no Ethernet option in the room. On a small point, I did feel that the restaurant staff could do with better training as once seated, I was largely ignored and was never offered a refill for my coffee or water without having to ask. I would stay there again and would recommend it and hope that the holiday inn management will take notice of some of the points above.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by iang1 awful coffee
stayed 3 nights at hotel for a conference next door. perfect for that - bridge linked.
staff were wonderful but the services provided are fairly basic.
rooms are fairly basic, with no fridge in them. no real quiet area to sit in public areas - either the bar area or in front of reception.
coffee in restaurant at breakfast every day was awful - had to go to the Costa next door to get a reasonable cup. restaurant menu does not have a cheese board option on it. room service had never heard of Horlicks or Oval tine.
