Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John1B Relaxing / Comfortable Value Stay with Helpful Staff
Relaxing / comfortable hotel with helpful friendly staff. Good value with basic facilities and tasty breakfast. Good standard but dated and need of a upgrade with pool / fitness area like other Holiday Inn sites.

This is a copy of what I've already posted on TripAdvisor
Once you've found the hotel (OK, I took the wrong exit from the M1), you find this strange oasis opf calmness and freindliness.
Strange? The entrance, bar, restaurant etc are in one building. The rooms, inluding several meeting rooms, are in another. You don't have to go outside because there's a bridge between buildings. Because the site is on a slope the level 1 rooms are on the level below reception. It's not a hi-rise. There are just the 2 floors. If you are placed in the room furthest away (Room 117, I know, I was there) it is about 200 metres from reception. It is also very quiet, as I suspect, is 217 above it.
The "restaurant", whilst having good tasty and varied meals, is styled more as a decent cafe. Breakfast has a very good and tasty set of alternatives. Nothing exciting, this is a Holiday Inn. But good wholesome grub.
The serving staff at both meals are so very friendly, and assist in helping ensure that you get the meal that you want - well above the normal call of duty.
Reception staff are efficient and friendly. They ask how are, and actually make it look like they care.
I would like the model to be used across the brand.
