Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lady C 5* Servcie at 3* Prices
Adult with 2 teenage children, 3 night stay with 3 days tickets to Alton Towers. Fabulous deal, food and staff was great...nothing was too much for them. Its around a 35/40 minute easy drive to Alton Towers, well worth the extra mileage when returning to a hotel that ticks all the boxes. The Spa was a welcome reviver each night, after the joys and long walks around Alton Towers!
Well done to all the staff who made the Birthday Treat memorable for my son.

THE STAFF WERE EXCELLENT IN THEIR DELIVERY OF SERVICE. PROFESSIONALISM OF THE STAFF WAS SECOND TO NONE. I WAS EXTREMELY IMPRESSED WITH THEIR ATTIRE. THEY WENT BEYOND AND ABOVE THEIR CALL OF DUTY. THEY WERE VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE LOCAL AREA AND THE PLACES OF INTEREST TO VISIT.

Very helpful staff and convenient location for a family party. Self service breakfast was more than adequate. Check in and check out both handled very well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kat1358 OK Nothing special
Positives - Quite old, but clean and comfortable. Large thick towels. Comfortable bed and good shower. Swimming pool and sauna good as well.
Negatives - Breakfast buffet over priced and not very hot, so didn't use this again.The next day used the Starbucks coffee lounge, but service was very slow. Wouldn't serve us at the counter. We had to sit and wait for our order of two coffees and two croissants to be taken even though it would have been quicker to take them to the table ourselves. People on the next table ordered after us, but were brought their food and drinks before. I usually stay in hotels where breakfast is included and usually better quality. The restaurant and coffee lounge staff were polite enough, but not particularly efficient. There were tables that needed clearing.
Overall it was ok for a couple of nights. Stayed in better and worse.

Check in was handled excellent and so was the time during the stay , surprisingly on check out desk staff said they did not have any of our details that sounded bizarre....and took time to locate our details that did slightly reduce our excitement level.
overall stay was good and place well groomed, so was the staff team. Looking forward to book in all my future stays with IHG

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by balcomie great value for money
The staff are what really ensured that this stay was as enjoyable as it was. For the money we paid it seemed like 5 star value for 3 star cost. It was a clean, comfortable and welcoming place to be with an excellent buffet breakfast that just kept on coming up until the very sensible time of 11am.

just a quick mention of yet another great stay at the Holiday Inn Stoke on Trent jcn 15 M6, a big thank you for Dave on reception for always being so helpful, and of course Matt with 2 t's behind the bar who always makes sure the bar runs smoothly and is always ready when he gets the chance to have a chat if he is not too busy, and of course Lauren and Georgia who also help to ensure the bar runs smoothly and take the room service food orders.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hainault some good,mostly poor
unable to get IHG rewards when booking online as site was down and check in staff said they couldn't do it.Check in wasn't very friendly but she did have a queue of 4 people.Room service was good and efficient in bringing missing items.Pool was excellent.In the bar in the evening as we sat near to reception some people brought in take away pizzas to eat in the bar area,i didn't think that was encouraged and then at 20.30 the housemaid decided to vacuum the front carpet but we did have a good nights sleep.The breakfast was a shambles,no direction as to where to go or what to do and no friendly greeting,the cooked food itself was inedible,being tough and salty

Myself and my family stayed at this Inn after being let down badly by a hotel up the road. The reception staff were excellent and could not have done more for us. I would highly recommend this Inn. Clean tidy and staff that went out of their way for you.

Last night of my trip for a wedding 2nd holiday inn within 4 days. Receptionist was very good and managed to change booking to family room as i booked a twin.
Pool was very good as usual. Stay here and you do get what it says. comfortable, cool and it was an enjoyable stay. Have tried 4 other hotels in the area an this is the best. Will keep coming back whilst family till close.
We do not eat at hotel but they will give you a map or advise where you can go to eat or how to get somewhere. just ask.
We do supper at macdonalds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Delrob Good atmosphere and service
The hotel was very clean and modern looking and the staff at reception were excellent. The room was clean and tidy and was decorated and maintained to a good standard.
The quality of the food served for the evening meal and breakfast was of good and the portions provided for breakfast were more than ample.
The only concern I would raise is the cost versus the portion size of the evening meals. Whilst food quality was good, the cost of a meal was expensive compared to portion size. One example was that of the fish and chips course which contained a piece of fish no more than say six inches long with slices of potato for chips, costing well into double figures.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jilly1653 convenient location
Just off M6 so convenient location but felt a very basic standard holiday inn. Understaffed in restaurant so,allow extra time in the morning for breakfast. Not good if you have to get to work on time.
Hotel rooms basic and in need of a refurb. My room was down endless corridors and was below ground level so felt damp and dark

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hayley1303 What you would expect!
We stay here several times a year and always find the rooms comfy, the staff friendly and the hotel peaceful.
My only one complaint was the half a cup of Milk that was quite literally stuck to the shelf in the fridge when we checked in, really quite gross. It was still there when we checked out two days later!
Other than that this is a great hotel which we will continue to return to again and again!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Freeguard2 Very disappointing stay
We had just spent four very enjoyable nights in your Holiday Inn, Gloucester and on the way back home to Scotland decided to make a day trip to Alton Towers and were looking forward to another enjoyable night at this hotel.
The nicest part of this stay was the welcome we received from the receptionist who checked us in, she was an absolute delight. I am afraid to say that it was downhill all the way after this.
After settling into our rooms we took the children (11 year old twins) to the pool for a swim, there was no one in attendance so booked ourselves in and helped ourselves to towels, at this point a rather aggressive woman came from somewhere, and obviously annoyed that we had helped ourselves showed us to the changing rooms. My son had taken with him to the pool three tennis sized sponge balls to play with when he had had his swim, within seconds this same woman came through to the pool barking at us that they shouldn't be thrown about or she would confiscate them, indeed they weren't even in the pool but left on a chair with our towels, we swam for a while and then she returned and ordered us over the pool and widened the swimmers lane, in her words because she had swimmers coming in which was exactly what we were doing, we left soon after and went for our dinner in the restaurant overlooking the pool, and guess what, NO swimmers appeared.
She was just being a BULLY.
The service in the restaurant was appallingly slow considering it was not at all busy. I ordered crispy duck, on being asked how id like it I said crispy skin with pink inside, the skin was soggy and well done, however the meal was tasty.
For desert my wife ordered a strawberry moose and received a chocolate one and I asked for butter with my cheese board only to be given flora, when these errors were pointed out it appeared from the waiters reaction that it was our fault.
Breakfast was much better however only that the pancake machine wasn't working and one wonders wether the staff couldn't be bother to fill it with the required dough.
I did e-mail our complaint to the General Manager whilst we were staying there and also spoke to a duty manager on the Sunday morning before leaving, to date we are still awaiting a response.
The only people other that the original receptionist to greet us were in fact the housekeepers and frankly the rest of the team are letting your brand down big time.
We certainly won't be staying there again and neither would we recommend it to anyone.

Booked as an IHG club member....thank goodness we had discount! Restuarant service was abysmal and unfriendly. What can I say, truly disappointed compared to other HI visits elsewhere.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LE4d Perhaps we caught them at a bad time?
Despite arriving at 10.30pm we were told (after establishing where we could and couldn't sit and choosing form the bar menu) that there was a 50 minute wait for food! The bar and lounge were very noisy but I gather that there was a fishing competition happening locally - who knew fishermen could be so noisy!
We retreated to our room with a takeaway and found that it was made up for only 2 whereas 3 of us were staying there.
The 'executive' room was not very special after the sofa bed had been opened out leaving no room to walk round the double bed.
The staff were, however, very friendly and helpful.

When we arrived we were abit wherey about being so close to the motorway, but infact we did not hear a thing!
Only thing that seemed to be a problem is there was no hair dryers avaliable in the room!
Beds were comfortable and room was nice and clean!
Breakfast was amazing loads to chose from and not busy at all which is always a plus

This hotel always costs that little bit more than others close by, however it is worth the difference, The wooden shutters in the bedroom ensure darkness is guaranteed for sleep as well as dampening any sound outside the windows.
Staff always attentive and service very good.

An aged 70's hotel that has well lived beyond its sell by date. Keeping it going are Friendly and attentive staff make the hotel more attractive.
This hotel is hard to recommend, endless corridors, aginf decor and an overpriced per night rate make it difficult to appreciate a good night
