Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sam_the_lamb Good choice for overnight stay
The whole experience from booking to checking out went well without hitch or problem.
The main compliments have to go to the staff - all of the staff we had contact with were helpful, friendly and welcoming and if i was still an employer I would be pleased to have them on my team.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by moggies4 Not bad hotel- as long as there is no wedding
We stay at Holiday as they have connecting rooms (Essential with 3 boys) and booked quite a way in advance. We were not told of a wedding taking place when booking (or any time afterwards), and as such the bar was crowded, and restaurant was shut.
As such we had to feed our 3 boys in our room with them sitting on the floor (not exactly ideal).
We also had a room with a bathroom fan that would never quit, and then started by itself at 6.25am waking our youngest child.
Just when he was going back to sleep, Both TV's in the rooms switched on (we had NOT set an alarm) waking him and everyone else up.
Breakfast was very crowded due to the wedding and I ended up perched on the edge of table with all five of us crowded round it as no others were available.
Overall I would just make sure there are NO weddings or functions on when you are coming, and make sure the TV is unplugged from the wall before going to sleep!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ratty a great shame
it was a great shame that we were not notified that they had a wedding reception going on as i had booked for a meal to be included as it was for us a very special occasion. yes we could of had meal in room not the same for this very special occasion so we had to go out, unfortunately i had to drive, instead of a pleasant evening in the hotel. As for sleep well you can imagine music went on till very late and as our room was next to lift this was going up an down till early hours then the traffic noise started quite early. i have stayed in holiday inn's in London on busy streets and you don't hear the traffic. so all in all not a lot of sleep.yes they compensated us for the meal side of things but it did spoil things and as for coming back to have drink in bar well no seating ended up back in room. hence my reasons for giving this a one star. could have contacted us so as we could of made other arrangements i am sure the function wasn't booked on spur of the moment.
