Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by broadcast It was a pleasure to stop the night
A lovely Holiday Inn with a nice ambience outside and inside Staff very good and food way above avarage. I have worked and stopped in many hotels around the UK and for the money this was one of the best in recent years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by snb90 Weekend break with friends
Another fantastic stay. Still great, friendly staff and great food. Mouth is watering just thinking about our visit to the restaurant!! Great leisure facilities and nice executive room/facilities.
Only bug bear is the over-inflated wine prices. You expect to pay more for wines in restaurants but can buy the wine we had for £7-8 a bottle, around £16-17 in a similar quality hotel we also visit - £21.50 here. (Up from £19.95 last time we were there!) At least 300% mark up seems a bit excessive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bootneck Great experience
I have been amazed at the standards achieved in this hotel.
I have avoided Holiday Inns for two years now and have also closed my companies corporate account with this chain, I may now have to revisit this decision. We were very surprised at the standards here after we needed to stay here only for the location.
We will definately use this hotel regularly now, Bed was great as was the room and breakfast was everything and more.
Staff friendly and helpful, what a change from the usual rude morons at most UK budget hotels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AlunP Excellent Business Facilities, Accommodation and hospitality
I stayed for two nights and 2 days using business services (team meeting); team 121 meetings a group meal and individual stay. All were excellent (especially Steven on the Bar and Paul porterage and conferencing). I would highly recommend using the facilities for business and pleasure. The hotel is a credit to Nigel (General Manager).

Why aren't all chain hotels like this one?
From being greeted by a smiling Jacqui on reception - for whom nothing was any trouble - to the room maid, the whole staff experience was excellent. Add to that a really comfortable room, good looking hotel and grounds and what more could a traveler want?
You guessed - good food and drink. This was supplied by friendly staff in a delightful restaurant. Dinner was served leisurely and yet promptly. There was also a good selection of wines and other drinks. Breakfast, although the usual buffet was was very well presented with only one slight black mark - watered fruit drink - a pet hate of mine!
All in all a great experience. The general manager should be complimented for his staff's performance and the overall appeal of the hotel.
I shall definitely be returning as soon as I can.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PCPM Great location - Dinosaur reception attitude
Oh dear, yet another hotel that believes that an upgrade is a 'freebie' and not part of a loyalty reward scheme! Do not expect an upgrade if you are a Platinum Reward member - the reception staff were adamant that they were full even when I showed them on my phone that rooms were available INCLUDING upgrades! No doubt the manager will reply that there was a glitch in the system - they usually do! But if an upgrade is available to purchase then it is available as part of the Loyalty scheme - simple!! The Priority Club is currently making big noises about major improvements to the scheme in July - I think they would be better going back to basics and sorting out the dinosaur attitudes of admittedly a minority of their reception staff. I can not comment on the food as I decided to take my meals outside - my way of returning loyalty! I won't be returning.
