Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Naldo2 Too hot, very small rooms, noisy if you get the wrong room
The staff are lovely.
The rooms are tiny.
The place is ridiculously hot even when the radiators are turned off, the heating pipes are all large bore and exposed.
The breakfast food is ok and the evening food fair.
Check the postcode carefully and ring the receptionist before you arrive as they give great directions.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by VonR53 Standard fare at a standard economy price
The room was clean, spacious and warm and if it was entirely devoid of decorative style / colour of any merit whatsoever (which it was) then no one should take offence because Holiday Inn are operating an economy / budget business. Quite a decent pool and fitness area that merits , say, three and a half stars. The worse part ? The bar. Awful decor, dreadful lighting, uncomfortable nasty cheap seating and all completely unnecessary as it would be easy to create a classy intimate bar lounge - even within such an economy budget level operation. The dining / breakfast room ditto with zero atmosphere. But the quality of the food was reasonably good - say three and a half star. The best part ? the service and attitude of the staff. Very good to excellent ! And I bet you don't pay them enough. Notwithstanding, I can still just about recommend this hotel as a base for tourism / business locally because of the positive elements above allied to a reasonable price per night for what you get.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Northern Couple Another Comfortable Stay
We stay at this Holiday Inn when visiting family in the area and have been doing so for a number of Years now. We find it comfortable and also handy with it's close proximity to The Motorway Network. Our room was comfortable and clean, with plentiful toiletries, etc. Good buffet breakfast with plenty of choice and we had an evening meal in the restaurant which was also good, if a little pricey but if you eat in a hotel restaurant I suppose that is par for the course. Having said that the sirloin steak was excellent, cooked as requested and very tasty and even my Daughter who is something of a steak critic was impressed. We will definitely stay at The Hotel when we are next in the area.
