Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dessie47 Cleaning staff have better customer service skills
This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. Its conveniently close enough to get away for a night, but sadly this time we were not that impressed.
On arriving the reception staff was very dismissive and almost in a hurry to get rid of us. They would do well to remember that they are the first point of contact for the hotel and can make or break the experience.
The room was fine and although the cleanliness was not 100% (dirty mirrors and taps) it was still completely acceptable, the king size bed was very uncomfortable - it was two beds pushed next to each other and for some reason it kept moving apart - not comfy at all. We ordered lunch in the room and the pizza was really tasty and the service good.We had booked the bed, breakfast and dinner deal. In the evening we went to reception to find out how the dinner deal worked as nothing was explained to us on checking in. After quite an ordeal (the person at reception) didn't know exactly what the deal was ?! We found out that there is a £23 allowance for each adult and that you can order what you like and that the allowance will be deducted. Food was of good quality.
The next morning we went for breakfast and the food was fresh and the selection was good. On our way to check out Tina one of the cleaning ladies , greeted us with " Good morning, hope you had a wonderful stay " - I am to say if all the staff could be as friendly as her it would be a pleasure. On checking out , I fortunately asked for the bill printed (it was not offered I had to request it) and then saw that I was overcharged - the allowance for the dinner was never deducted.
Not a bad stay at such, but the reception staff could definitely do with some customer service and product training. They have to know what deals are being sold and they should have knowledge about it (as to not over charge customers - customers shouldn't have to scrutinize their bill - it should be right) it would also be nice to be greeted properly with something like " welcome to holiday in , how can I help you" not just a "yes ?"
Might consider going somewhere ells in future.

The hotel was great value for money, however, it is looking tired and could do with some money being spent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SleeplessinElstree Best towels in the country!
I stayed here on business in August and found the staff very friendly, the room excellent, the food delicious and the bathroom clean and tidy.
Oddly, a highlight of my stay was that the towels were incredibly soft!
The most luxurious towels in the UK!
It seems a trivial thing to mention, but this high level of comfort added an extra dimension of luxury to my stay.
To have lovely soft fluffy towels like these is just one of those touches, along with highly attentive and professional staff, which make this hotel a hidden gem of a place!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doreen 66 Relax at Holiday Inn
The Holiday Inn has various rooms to meet your requirements, all are of good standard, with comfortable bed, and an area for working on Lap Tops if needed. Everywhere is well kept and clean, staff are friendly and willing to help. The reason I return to the Holiday Inn is because of the atmosphere and comfortable rooms.

We have been staying at this hotel since it was built. We come to London every six weeks or so to see our children and grandchildren.
The hotel is equidistant to our two families of children.
The staff at the hotel know as by name and greet us and treat us as family.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Da iawn Unimaginative breakfast otherwise nice hotel & staff
Maybe the price was higher than expected but the hotel is very nice and the service from the staff very good.
We already knew from previous reviews that dinner / evening meals were not well received so we eat elsewhere. Unfortunately the breakfast at the hotel was poor. Lacking in variety, quality and presentation. At these prices 3 small pieces of cold meat wrapped in cling film is not very appealing. I paid one-third the price for far better. It would not take much in the way of cost to improve the breakfast at the hotel, just some positive imagination and organisation.
Also of all the language choices Welsh was not included !!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LA221 Disappointing stay :(
Sadly I have to say this is the worst Holiday Inn I have stayed at :(
The bedroom had torn wall paper on the wall, the curtain wasn't hung properly due to a broken hook and the bed was the most uncomfortable i have slept in for a very long time. A very tired worn out room...
I have stayed at Holiday Inns for a number of years now and always book them by choice as I have always had a very good experience, lovely rooms, comfortable beds, etc.
This was so poor.......

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Siomp It's ok!
Always seem short changed at this hotel.
It is unusually expensive for outer london albeit the facilities are good. The rooms tend to be small, and you never get any little extras as you do from other hotels for being a platinum member (eg water and choccie bar). Also half the time, they have no bonus point vouchers (or can't be bothered!)
It's ok just not one to rush to!

Ddi not have a very happy stay but still gave OK ratings. IHG asked me to review hotel. I did. IHG refused to publish the review. Sent me a link which tells me so but do not tell me why & link to update my review does not work. How do you get good scores. Do not publish bad ones. Not good enough.
My advice is dont bother.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Simon J Comfortable bed and good staff
We slept OK but the air con was noisy and not able to cool enough ( you can only set it to -3deg cooler than normal) about 21 deg which is too hot even taking the duvet out of the cover and using it as a sheet)
We were woken early in the morning by drilling - planned work in the next bedroom - obviously nobody checked to see if our room was occupied!!
Breakfast was to the normal HI template but not well executed, I certainly didn't think it was worth the money - better off with a Costa, and cheaper too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nickynoo Great value for money
As we were attending a party we decided to book a family room . The children enjoyed the pool (albeit slightly small) the room was comfortable and clean, bathroom could do with modernising however the Hotel was great value for money and on that basis I would use it again.

All in All a very plesant stay. Only thing is that the facilities, rooms and gym are a bit tired looking and feeling. A little refurbishment would make a big difference.
The rest, Staff, Food and Service were very good
