I visited the hotel last week i was working on the night shfit i asked for a quiet room when i booked the hotel. On arrivel when i booked in at the front desk they took about 15 to locate me a room, i was told there was not upgrads which was fine. When i got to my room i saw it was right next to the lefts not ideal for night workers also when i got up the next day i had to phone house keeping to clean my room, i was asked by the front desk for a exact time for when i was getting up every day so my room could be cleaned. I felt the the services was very poor all round i spend most of my time traveling due to my work and have had a better service in other hotels very disspointing even had to wate for the food in the restaurant, even though the staff where very nice in the restaurant

I was on nighhtshift and had told the hotel this in my booking form and again at reception when I arrived, however that didn't stop housekeepinhg 'phoning me when asleep to ask if I wanted my room serviced. I asked for towels, tea etc to be left at the door but this never happened. Overall very dissappointing, however on a more positive note the staff in the restaurant were very nice albeit that the wait for food was excessive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cyberman Staff couldnt be more friendly and helpful
Reception first class, recognised me as a Platinum member, service was excellent and friendly. Restaurant staff were brilliant and allowed me to dine even after closing. They were really attentive, friendly and entertaining..in a positive way. Meal was great and they even went out of their way to get free wi-fi for me whilst I was eating. The staff here at Bolton are some of the best I have come across in all of the Holiday Inn hotels I frequent.

First time stay .Found reception staff in fact all staff were very helpfull in every aspect of the business.I dined in the hotel both nights i was there and found the food and service to be very good .Probably the best i have had in the Holiday Inn group.On my final night I meet the two Khan brothers who were attending a boxing night in the hotel which i later joined and had a really good evening watching the youngsters do there stuff.I have to base myself in the area due to my work and to be honest this will be the hotel of my choice .Keep up the good work .You guys are a credit to the brand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by STEWK Total let down
Not greeted as a priorty member,no compliamentary newspaper, no free Wi FI.
Food appalling,3 nights, all microwave/boil in bag, and instant mash!!!
Reception and lounge,tied,dark,uncomfortable chairs.
Rooms tied and dated, 1st floor corridor smells of damp.
Two perople checked out whilst I was tehre around noise. The old dated air conditioning units and very nosiy,if your room is next to these you will not sleep. The top floor,you have the benefit of gurgling noise all night from the plumbing system. The pool area is of putting and pool water looks dirty.
I stay throughout EMEA,majority with holiday inn. This is the worse by far.

We left Holland for a 3 night stay at this hotel with 2 adults and 3 children. Centrally located for shopping and swimming pool for the children topped the bill.
Rooms tidy, beds comfortable and a good strong shower.
Good breakfast choice in relaxing surroundings made even more special by the professional attention of Deepak. The reception staff were Always friendly, smiling and willing to help. A big thank you to you all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James909 Friendly, comfortable, convenient
This is a very welcoming Holiday Inn (in my experience they always are) with very friendly, helpful staff located conveniently in Bolton town centre.
It was good value for money, with a comfortable bedroom and a very good breakfast.
I had two bar snacks which were very nice although a little pricey, but it was good quality food, well presented in a pleasant atmosphere.
Overall I would recommend this and I will certainly use this hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lozzy weekend away with my daughters
Stayed here once before which was why I chose it again. Really great location for Bolton shopping, walking distance from town which is brilliant. Room smelt funny when we arrived, a bit like someone had just used the bathroom - if you know what I mean. Opened window and sprayed deodorant. Was initially told at check in that I would have to pay for my girls for breakfast - aged 11&12, never have before but was told quite adamantly that it would be £10 for each of us for each breakfast so I reluctantly paid it. Only on check out and having filled a survey form in did a member of staff come and find me in the pool area to say that this was not the case and I would be getting a refund for my girls breakfasts. All in all a very good stay, lovely pool. Maybe a bit more training for staff for check in and charges could be beneficial, as if I hadn't of filled the survey in I wouldn't have got the refund.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BRW27 A good stay
I was here two nights on business and worked in hotel inbetween meetings in area so was around during the day as well as evening. Overall a great stay very slighly let down by insufficent communication at check-in on how to register for internet access (getting a code from reception) and how acces to the gym worked. Apart from that the staff are really helpful, the food was good and the room comforable & quiet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by littleshed Why Be A Platimum Member?
I have just had the worst experience of my years staying at Holiday Inns. As a Platimum Member of the Rewards Scheme, I now question "what's the point"? I was checked into a room via the Rewards Scheme onto the second floor, which at the time seemed to be occupied by schoolchildren in just about every room. As you can imagine, doors slammed, kids were running around constantly at all times of the day and night and groups congregated in the corridor. Rest was non-existent. On top of that, NO heating worked in the room. Neither the radiator nor the air conditioning. The solution was an inadequate electric radiator that could obviously only be used when in the room. So the room was always cold until occupied. And obviously when warm, the radiator had to be turned off manually. Which meant in the morning, the room was once again like a fridge until the radiator was turned on manually. EVERY day, my room "key" failed to allow me entry into the room which meant going back to reception to get the key re-coded. It became extremely tedious to be asked "have you had your key near your phone?" As a Platimum member, doesn't the staff realise that as a guest, I may actually have been asked that question several times previously in my several years staying at Holiday Inns? AND as a consequence, kept the two apart? And it happened EVERY day, which suggests it wasn't me? No recompense or apology or explanation or a change of room was offered. I therefore question what's the point of being a platimum member? It's not worth the paper it's printed on.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by trish07 poor experience for a wedding party
Bridal party with multiple room bookings. Very poor reception. Had rang day before to confirm two rooms available for the bridal party to check in at 12 - receptionist denied having this info initially until she found the details - this prolonged check in for us at a crucial time. In itself wouldn't have been a massive problem but then one of the bride maids went to check in only to find her room had been given up as hotel had cancelled booking . Same receptionist caused such a fuss that the brides maid was in tears. Eventually manager came down and room sorted. This added undue stress to the bridal party. All breakfast staff fab.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Restraintman1956 Good hotel good staff good facilities read on
Lack of attention to care at the front desk could have spoilt the experiance!
Gym and pool are down stairs but the room key cards does not open the door.
You need to collect both a towel and gym keycard at the front desk,
The problem was nobody told me!!
The saving grace is the excellent duty Manager Rachael (apologies if i have got the name wrong) and her staff who could not do enough to help once she realised what had happened.
If the chap on reception had done his job properly when i arrived all would have gone swimmingly. no pun intended!!
Then again i would not have had the pleasure of meeting the duty manager.

I have stayed in this hotel for the last 4 weeks whilst attending a course through work, on a DBB package. the hotel is very clean and the rooms comfortable , the staff are excellent friendly & helpful . The gym, pool & sauna are an extra bonus . The food overall has been very good with plenty of choice . It's a shame the wi-fi isn't free or cheaper .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 our stay was not so nice
Firstly false advertisment . there is no jecuzi and the sauna where out of order.
secondly - there where people running up and down the corridors all night , my partner and i were up from 3am through doors slamming
thirdly the pool where not clean, when swimming i dont expect to see 2 bloody plasters in the water and dont expect the pool to be cold.
when i phoned up to complain the man on the phone where very rude and unhelpful .
i will not be staying in a holiday inn again, ive paid for things ive not used eg. sauna and jecuzi
and there policy is being relaxed , i where far from .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wisemum Excellent family room and great breakfast
We stayed for 2 nights in an excellent family room - it was very spacious and comfortable with a double bed, single bed, settee, armchair and plenty of storage (also TV + tea/coffee making facilities). The bathroom had a bath and separate shower cubicle. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great with plenty of choice - fresh coffee and pots of tea were brought to the table. There was plenty of parking for all the guests. The room was a very comfortable temperature for a good night sleep, not overheated as can be the case. We would certainly return if visiting the area again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sergio1967 Not one of IHG's best...
Sadly this was a very disappointing Holiday Inn,,,, Right from the start at check in to breakfast the following morning it was a poor experience. The room was overly warm and the air conditioning was not working (it was the same for my colleague in a different room). The breakfast fare, whilst it was similar to most Holiday Inn's was not pleasing at all. Sadly this particular hotel will not be on my list of hotels to return to.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by marshall123 Clean comfortable room for price
Good value but experienced a few problems like the shower tray cracking on use, air conditioning did not switch off so noisy all night and hairdryer out of action. The spa was very tired, grubby and jacuzzi was covered over and sauna too busy to use. The spa was really dingy as in basement with cracked and dirty tiles. Not very appealing so would not return.

This hotel was ideal for our weekend away. Situated in walking distance to the town centre, ideal for the bars and restaurants. We found this hotel very comfortable, lovely and warm and the staff were so friendly. Lovely added bonus with the use of the pool. Would recommend and we would definitely return here.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jaimieboy Awfull coffee and breakfast, dirty bedroom.
Very good initial experience at reception, excellent customer care. Bedroom not the cleanest, carpet not very clean plus bathroom floor tacky. One bedside light not working plus bathroom extactor fan running continuously, mentioned this at reception. When we left 2 days later nothing had been rectified and the wash basin waste had now ceased to work. Breakfast the worst coffee I have ever had at a hotel, cold and weak, a fried egg that could have been used as a discus it was that hard. Why am I writing this? Having now just read previous reviews you are obviously not going to pay any attention!

I had a couple of problmes when I checked in, nothing serious. I had single beds instead of a double and I had to ask for extra pillows twice. However, the staff were very friendly and helpful and apologised for the problems with a bottle of wine delivered to the room. I believe that we can be truly measured by the way we deal with mistakes and I was very impressed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lawrence896 Excellent value
My wife and I stayed at the hotel over the weekend and found it very enjoyable. The staff were excellent and the small dark haired waitress really made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in room 103, the room was clean and comfortable with a very good shower. Check in and out was very smooth.
Holiday Inn need to change their advertising regarding breakfast, the advert states "Help yourself to a hearty breakfast", this suggests the breakfast is free of charge which is not the case. The breakfast was excellent and we did not mind paying extra for it, however there should be a column on the booking form offering the option for breakfast. Premier Inns make this very clear on their forms
