Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Geordiefaefife Comfortable bed and great breakfast
the biggest disappointment for me was the use of mobile phones and laptops in the restaurant during the evening meal. the first night I was dining alone but I got a taxi to another hotel to dine. the second night I was being joined with a friend but again the laptops were out so she suggested we go elsewhere.
the plus side was the massive bed and choice of pillows, a good night was followed with a five star breakfast.

Be assured of a warm welcome at this Holiday Inn. The Reception staff are friendly and extremely helpful.
The rooms are comfortable and the public areas pleasant to be in. The breakfast was delicious!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NickABZ Refurbished rooms - nicer inside than it looks from the outside
Newly refurbished rooms have been very well done. Easy access from the A1 and plenty of room to walk a dog on the lawns at the back.
Portions a bit small at dinner, but food was good and breakfast above average. Don't get too excited about the gym, which is tiny.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tigertam Great stay
This was our first visit to this hotel, and it was a very good experience all round. As we were going to Newcastle races it was ideal for that purpose. The lounge area and food were great. The staff were excellent and made us very welcome. We had a problem during our first night with a very noisy radiator, which kept us awake most of the night. It was banging almost every hour and I managed to clear it, but it just kept banging. I reported it to the night porter at approx. 4am and he said nobody could do anything until the maintenance staff arrived later that morning. They set about a repair as we were at breakfast, but the receptionist had already agreed for us to move to an upgraded room, where we moved to later that day. It was all done very efficiently with no fuss. Thanks
