Great place for a short stay; friendly and helpful staff. Tired looking from the outside; and may have to walk a long way to the room as it is a low level design.
Would stay again; breakfast lovely; especially the pancake machine; the pool was good size, clean and quiet; with sauna, jacuzzi and steam room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zulu1234 Great Hotel Experience, only let down is the food
Great service and friendly staff.
Hotel is location situated conveniently within easy reach of the city centre, a park and ride service and motorway.
There is enough parking spaces, a handy luggage trolley is available by the entrance of the hotel.
Facilities are very good and rooms are comfortable, clean and spacious.
The only down side for us was the food; dinner and the continental breakfast (cooked breakfast was v. good). We stayed two nights, both nights we stayed for dinner however we chose to eat out for breakfast on the second day.
Dinner presentation, taste and value for money was poor. I am used to HI food being very good and tasteful, this was quite a disappointment.
I would definitely stay in this hotel again, as the hotel experience was very pleasant and the staff were very helpful and friendly. However, I wont be staying there for breakfast or dinner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MandS.007 A relaxing break
The room was clean and spacious and overlooked a field.
The pool was warm and staff helpful and the grounds help to set the hotel back from the road and make the location peaceful.

Stayed here whilst in area on business. Being a Platinum member I got upgraded at check-in. Room was fine although bathroom was tired and needed re-furbishing.
Food in restaurant was excellant as were staff. Bar staff were also very good

As usual, excellent service all across the board in the Holiday Inn.
Impressed with the choice of pillows as I need a firm pillow and most hotels don't provide this choice

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SinkyH Great staff & food
From check in to check out I found the staff extremely friendly and co-operative. Sorting out my WiFi payment issue, repeated times my key needed re-programming (need to keep it away from magnets in my iPad case!) and generally dealing with my custom with a smile.
The room was clean and comfortable and the curtains certainly kept out the light - unfortunately the same could not be said for the 20mm gap at the base of the door. A rolled up towel soon solved that minor issue though.
I had one evening meal at the hotel and I thoroughly enjoyed it ... the food was very well presented and tasty.
The breakfasts were the normal buffet fare, with the usual issue of plates not being quite warm enough to prevent the food cooling.
