Brent Cross Fabulous, Heathrow excellent.
Runcorn roller coaster.
Some staff go the extra mile and are superb and accommodating. One IS as a real problem and spoilt the whole experience. Regular break fast run outs and at dinner kept waiting for totally unacceptable time to get the order in and to get for delivered. Real problems in the restaurant.
Beware some are excellent spoilt by one or two.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reckit Excellent, relaxed stay.
Six of us stayed in 3 spotlessly clean twin rooms for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. Excellent bar and plenty of comfortable seating in the bar and lobby area, even has a pool table. We only ate breakfasts in the hotel and although slightly pricey there was a good range available and you could take as much as you wanted. Again staff were very attentive and friendly. Overall a great place to stay and we will definitely be back again.

This hotel combines high standards of food and accommodation,with the added bonus of exceptionally friendly staff.The staff give it the personal touch to make you feel welcome.They were cheerful and chatty to us who had been before, caring to sole travellers, and respectful to those who wanted privacy.We had a couple of minor problems over newspapers and a query on the bill, which were resolved quickly and efficiently.We felt that customer service was their top priority.We had an excellent stay and hope to return next year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KittyM123 Great location, good value for money
It was excellent for what we needed. Good value for money, gym and pool facilities. Prompt service and friendly staff. Very helpful with information required. Room was extremely quiet and the beds were so comfortable. The only fault was that there wasn't enough choice of drinks in the room. Only two tea sachets which doesn't give you enough for one in the evening and one in the morning and there is never enough milk. This is common though and not related to this hotel. Can recommend to anyone who wants a clean room with hot and cold water, comfortable bed and good location for Cheshire and Liverpool. Didn't eat in restaurant in the evening - headed to Chinese in Frodsham - best chinese we've ever had!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Partist Excellent service; a comfortable stay.
We stayed here having attended an event in Cheshire the same day. The price of bed and breakfast for two of us was incredible: significantly lower than I have previously paid in some budget hotels. Our room was a good size and, being on the top floor, having a good view out. Our twin beds were comfortable, and the air-con was much appreciated on a warm and muggy night.
Service from every member of staff encountered: at reception, in the bar, in the health club, in the restaurant, was uniformly good. Breakfast itself was much enjoyed; in spite of heading to breakfast within the last hour of serving, having enjoyed a swim beforehand, there was plenty of choice in all areas.
Some of the corridors and the bathroom were looking a little tired, but all was immaculately clean. As an example, the bedside lights in our room, which worked perfectly, contained low-energy bulbs significantly bigger than the shades, one of which didn't fit. This, however, caused us no problem.
The design of the hotel is excellent, with the bedrooms being situated along a walkway in a separate block from function rooms, the bar, and the restaurant. As a result, any noise generated in those areas would not and did not reach the bedroom. There was a wedding party in full swing during our stay, and we only noticed it whilst driving in, never elsewhere.
We would have no hesitation in staying here again if in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by belleivy06 great service. Very helpful staff.
We stayed at the hotel for a wedding and were really well looked after. The hotel staff made sure the wedding ran smoothly and looked after all the guests really well. When I rang the hotel to check if we could have a room early they were extremely helpful and pulled out all the stops and had one available for us. The young man on our floor (4) was very friendly and helpful and gave us a good supply of teas and coffees. We had a bit of a problem with room service but the hotel didn't charge us for the food. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are thinking of holding a wedding there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mnatups Great location and amenities
The only down side to our weekend stay was on the Friday night there was a wedding being held in the hotel and the quests in the room next to us came back quiet late and continued to be noisey until gone 3am.
We don't take exception to someone having a good time but to be so inconsiderate put a dampener on the one weekend we took out of our busy working lives to relax.
We put it down to being unfortunate to be next to a room full of drunken lads.
Other than that top stay :-)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hoppit21 overall
We stayed here for three nights and a package of three nights bed, breakfast and evening meal. Very pleased with the whole three days. Our only complaint was that we were told in the restaurant that we could pick any thing with the letter S after it or otherwise there would be a supplement. We kept to the rule except for one night and was surprised to find a supplement on our bill for every night. Staff were friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Godders2k Regular stayer - Always good service
I stay at the 'Holiday Inn - Runcorn' regularly for work. The rooms are always clean and beds comfortable. Location for me is perfect as it is this side of the bridge which means I don't have to cross it in the morning to get to the office. Frodsham is only a short drive away and is walkable if you are someone who likes to get out of your hotel room and find somewhere to eat/drink. I've eaten in the hotel a few times and have to say I'm very impressed with the quality of food. The lasagne was particularly tasty. Breakfast is also of a high quality, choice of eggs is always a plus in my books and good array of cold and hot food. I like to keep fit, the gym is more than adequate and if you like to go running outside there are plenty of places to run around the area. Overall I think the hotel is very well run and hence why I choose to stay here regularly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AliNatt14 Great food, efficient staff and clean rooms.
Having had a little dispute over being able to claim some Zoo tickets which were supposed to be included in the accommodation price, our stay was really quite comfortable.
The Food was outstanding and as one vegetarian and one vegan, we were able to order from the menu and the chef was sympathetic to our needs, adjusting them accordingly.
Clean room and bathroom although the lighting in bathroom could be better. Quiet location, comfortable bed and pillows. We did a 6.30am swim which set us up for the day and the staff were efficient with all our needs when asked. Was great to have the option of not getting kicked out till 12 noon instead of 10am as we were able to relax a little before our Zoo trip and 5 hour journey home. Would stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by julio7044 Comfortable Hotel but Charge for WiFi
I don't usually complain, but I am getting tired of UK hotels charging extras. This is a really nice Hotel very conveniently placed beside the M56. The room was good and the choice of pillows great - a good night sleep had.
But why should we have to pay for WiFi? It has become standard across most countries for WiFi to be free of charge for guests.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mazers Clean and comfortable bed and great service.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly from the staff at reception on arrival to departure and also the bar staff. Small but very clean and comfortable room with an adequate bathroom/shower. The meals are good with a good selection. The only downside was the cost of drinks which I found expensive. Had they been cheaper I would have enjoyed the night more. But overall a good relaxed night with a quiet and comfortable room.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sheffvisitor Poor value - anonymous hotel
The hotel is a big anonymous hotel with a strange layout where some of the bedrooms are downstairs!
The rooms feel divorced from the main hotel, big lounge and bar area but did not feel comfortable. Food generally over priced and no alternatives nearby.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by olaf B a one night stay
This was just a quick stay, on the way to the Open Championship. Hence we didn't use any of the facilities. The room was rather old, and in desperate need of refurbishment. Most of the furniture was unusable, as drawers / cupboard doors screwed shut.
Lighting was limited. Electricity outlets also limited.
The wifi also did not work for most of the time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed in Runcorn Beware of tiny rooms
Bedroom was small and cramped. the bathroom was even worse - you had to slide between the toilet and wash basin to be able to close the door!
We paid extra for an executive room, and could hardly move as it was crammed with furniture - there was just enough room to move around the bed - two people couldn't walk round at the same time.
There was only one bedside table.
