Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AlarmMaster Good hotel close to motorway
Stayed for Business and then RIAT at Fairford. Excellent hotel close to road network but in a quiet location.
Room was everything expected of Holiday Inn, clean, well maintained and in good working order.
Internet worked well though not used for any serious processes such as viewing a video
Downside - short of 240v outlets, good job I carry an extension lead with me for my CPAP machine + the many other things that constantly need re charging.

Having stayed at Holiday Inns all over the UK, I was very surprised/shocked to find this two storey large complex has no lift to the upper floor.
Whilst the young lady receptionist did carry our hand luggage up the 20 plus stairs, I must say I was staggered that there is no other method of taking cases up to the upper floor, other than lugging them up the stairs.
I really felt for one man who had to carry a coach load of overseas visitors cases up.
I feel that the lack of lift when 50% of rooms are upstairs (no downstairs replacement room was available to us on our stay) should be mentioned on the website.
The fact that the fire alarm was set off at 5 past 4 am by some drunken young men, didn't help our stay. Which of course meant we all had to evacuate the building. Nor did the fact that it went off again at 6.40am am, though only for a short time but it meant that it was not a perfect Holiday Inn stay.
Though it had one good outcome - I now lay out my items when going to sleep in an order of importance to grab. So perhaps it was a wake up call of a learning type!

We stayed for 2 nights - husband, self and teenage son. The room wasn't huge, but big enough and comfortable. Loved the bed and son reckoned he was very comfy on the sofa and on the floor (he wriggles). Surprisingly little noise for this type of hotel, except for the air con, which was very effective, but also noisy.
Very nice pool area which we made good use of.
Star of the show - the really good restaurant - not cheap but far better food than normal in hotels of this type. Dinner and breakfast both excellent, with a really good choice for breakfast (son now wants a pancake maker)
