I use this hotel quite frequently, it is never the greatest hotel, but if you get a refurbished room then it's clean, modern and comfortable and given it's location it is decent value for money.
Some things are always a little irratating, such as the very poor internet, the poor TV (which randomly switches on and off, or decides not to work at all, or has the loudest and most annoying musical introduction imaginable!), or the staff who are ovely keen to do what they have been told, but don't react to your responses. It is as if they are focussed on asking set questions but not trained to respond to the answers. Over time it becomes endearing, though sometimes a little frustrating.
My last visit however was the worst so far. The reception area is being refurbished, as such the bar is now commendeered to be reception and the bar area moved to a meeting room, with decorating table with an array of alcohol on it. This is during the summer holiday time when the hotel is full of people travelling through the airport. So all the temporary facilities which would have be inadequate for a quiet period were over run for this busy period. Then in a morning during the check out times there were men on ladders in the the temporary reception fitting lights. It feels just so uncoordinated.
This could be at best a decent value hotel with very little effort, but instead it seems to constantly lurch toward Fawlty Towers-ness. I have stayed in worse hotels, but I just think this one could be so much better with just a little more effort.

no drinking facilities in room as this was a family room was disgusting, bedding very poor, restaurant was awful...food very bland and over priced, toilet facilities down stairs from restaurant which my partner struggled with so we never stayed for breakfast. bathroom door was sticking and my son struggled to get lout of the bathroom. as a family who may stay in a hotel once or twice a year have never experienced this before and will never stay in a Holiday Inn
