I stay in hotels regularly all over the country and this was one of the worst I've stayed in.
Service and food quality in the restaurant was atrocious.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mbn244 A few niggles but would definitely stay again
We were a little confused when we arrived because we thought we had booked a Holiday Inn Express, which was the website we used initially. Of course we were not unhappy! The hotel is welcoming, the reception staff are excellent, and the housekeeping standard is superb. Our room was a very good size and very well equipped - a proper wardrobe, lots of drawer and desk space, even a sofa and round table large enough for 4 people. There was an iron, ironing board, trouser press, TV, hair dryer, hospitality tray with biscuits and plenty of milk. In the bathroom there was a shaver socket, liquid soap, liquid shower gel/shampoo, a bar of soap, tissues, bath mat, glasses, and nice thick towels. The bath towels were actually huge bath sheets, which was a luxury. Initially I thought the bed was far too hard, but there was a choice of pillows and I slept very well indeed. A particular joy was that the curtains just swished along the rail - so often in hotels it's a tug of war to get them to open or close properly. And the free daily newspaper Monday to Friday was a nice touch. There is a restaurant and a spa and you can also have meals served to your room. So what were the niggles, I hear you ask? Well, the rooms have been well used and could benefit from a lick of paint; the bathroom sink was crazed, although immaculately clean; the shower was a mere dribble though the water temperature was good and stable. A minor point, but the waste bins didn't have liners and we were reluctant to put our used tea bags in them but were not clear what we should do. And the bed sliding away from the wall when we attempted to sit up was a little disconcerting. We don't generally eat breakfast so I can't comment on that, other than to say it seemed very expensive. All that aside, the room was so comfortable it was an effort to leave each day. We will definitely choose this hotel again when we are next in Telford.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jahmoo Friendly, Clean but worst night sleep
I have stayed once in Telford Int & now Holiday Inn Telford, I asked in the morning if they were connected in any way, I was told yes. Both stays in separate hotels were the same. The Mattresses were both too hard for my back and caused me kidney cramp(only way to describe the pain)
Sorry Holiday Inn, I am a Gold member and as my new job, office is in Telford, I will have to find another hotel to stay at, first time I have felt this way, but sleepiness nights and back pain are not a mix I want again.
Staff very friendly, hotel clean and tidy. Just the main issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by old roydonian Good place to meet the family
Stayed for one night to meet son, daughter-in-law and toddler granddaughter. Rooms and pool very good. We had to eat in the bar as the restaurant opened too late for the toddler's evening meal. Perhaps this was a deliberate policy to keep little ones out of the restaurant! but it mean that we could not benefit from the offer of a free bottle of wine and 10% off the food bill. Breakfast was good and after coffee we enjoyed a free walk around nearly Wonderland. I did feel it was a bit mean, though, to be charged for a child's small cup of warm milk. Overall we enjoyed our stay and we would book this hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MEEC A Good Stay
Never stayed at this hotel before but arrived later than planned. Had a welcoming check in, used the gym which was well worn but worked fine and then retired to my room and ordered some room service. The food arrived promptly and was pretty good. Slept very well and went to breakfast which was fine. Left hotel quite happy. Would stay again next time I'm in the area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed70 A slippery slope to disappointment!
I have stayed in this hotel on 3 occasions of recent weeks and my experience has unfortunately deteriorated on each time I return.
On my first visit I received a warm welcome and although the hotel is dated they made the very most of what they had with friendly staff and a can do attitude. Although I had missed the restaurant the reception staff ordered some takeaway food for me which was beyond what they needed to do. I was welcomed as a platinum member and given a nice upgraded room.
Great I thought I can use this hotel regularly. On my next visit I was earlier to arrive and so ordered room service. Without doubt it was the worst food I have ever seen delivered in any hotel - completely in edible. I also discovered that I had received none of my loyalty points. When I emailed the reception to update this - I was told to do it myself through customer relations.
On my third visit I had the most appalling checkin I have ever had at any hotel. No platinum recognition - in fact the receptionist didn't seem to know what platinum membership meant. When I asked if she could upgrade the room she looked baffled, spent 10 mins on the computer before upgrading me from a standard double to a standard twin in an area of the hotel undergoing repairs. Despite being exhausted I had to go back and move into the original room. When I asked why she had moved me to a worse room, she claimed she had no idea what the rooms were like. Whilst I could appreciate that the receptionist may have been inexperienced I was more appalled that her more experienced colleague watched her make mistake after mistake and did nothing to help me or alleviate her discomfort. I received no platinum recognition and I am still waiting on the 500 pts promised to platinum members.
I don't know what management are doing here however I have never seen a hotel slip so badly so quickly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ltdt So so hotel
For various reasons (not fault of hotel), I stayed in 2 different rooms.
Beds in both rooms were uncomfortable. In one room, I couldn't find anyway of warming up the room, though there is a central heating pipe running along the outside wall, hardly adequate.
Wifi signal in one of the rooms was unreliable to be kind. Wifi in both rooms extremely slow as to be unusable. I had to give up trying to catch up with work email.
Ate at the hotel restaurant because bad weather prevented me going out and there is nothing worthwhile in town centre. Restaurant staff were disinterested.
Front desk staff did not make me feel welcome though efficient. Only bright spot was the person checking me out. She was very pleasant.
The hotel itself is pretty souless and there isn't much to recommend it unless you are in Telford for big conventions since there isn't much else around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seejay44 Best Holiday Inn I have stayed at in many years
As per heading, I cannot recall a Holiday Inn as good as this in a very long time. Believe it was refurbished a couple of years ago, and room was certainly very smart/clean and modern....with 2 double beds (which we really liked). Looked like it had been refurbished only last week.
Swimming pool was fine, and the changing facilities there were excellent.
Staff both in reception and restaurant /bar went out of their way to be helpful, which was good to see.
There simply were no negatives, loads of plusses and we shall certainly be returning for our trips to the Midlands
Thank you all very much

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fatmanpauluk Another Great Stay
Always had a great time at this hotel. Good price paid too for B&B. Although there was a large Christmas party booked in the restaurant our service was still an acceptable speed.
Leisure facilities are a big plus here and the pool and Jacuzzi were quite warm.
Breakfast was relaxed and unhurried. Plenty of food and of good quality.
We had one of the new renovated rooms. For me the mattress was a little soft but for my partner it was perfect. It's horses for courses. The bathrooms are a big improvement and now are warm and welcoming instead of being clinical white.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mcb1908 Dirty room but good manager
My second time in this hotel. Arrived at 21.00hrs and on arrival in room used the phone to call room service. The phone was sticky and dusty. I looked over to the bed. The outer pillow case was not on fully - thank goodness - as the under pillow case had blood on it. The chair was covered ( back and seat) in white stuff. The counter top was dirty. The setee was dusty and the air conditioning unit vent was full of muck. I asked for the duty manager who arrived and was most apologetic. He explained that the hotel was being refurbished. My complaint was not of the décor but of the very poor standard of cleanliness - it was totally unacceptable. The manager cleaned as best he could and by way of compensation did not charge me for my stay or meals. I would have preferred to move rooms but I believe the hotel was full. I will probably stay there again as it is convenient for my business but I hope that the next stay will be in a clean room. The main areas of the hotel are good. It is a pity that housekeeping has let this hotel down. I do have photos but have not had time to transfer them from my phone. I can supply if necessary.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Loosehead Tired and expensive
Possibly the smallest Executive room i've ever booked and at the prices charged it just does not represent value for money.
The room was "tired" at best with chipped furniture and a well worn mattress ( unusual for Holiday Inns).
Whilst the food in the restaurant was acceptable the limited menu should have produced a much better standard.
Breakfast was a strange affair with only a limited counter space open leading to shortages and queues at the self service.
All in all not great - and not even a free paper for Platinum Elite!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by QROPS So much better
Had a bad experience earlier in the year in a tired and somewhat dusty room. Stayed in a well appointed, very clean, rennovated room this time much more in keeping with Holiday Inn Brand. Staff extremely attentive, engaging and pleasant to speak with. Breakfast is exceptionally good. Well done, we will come back!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Collins772 Great hotel. Great food.
We had read a few reviews which didn't paint a pretty picture of the hotel but we couldn't disagree more. The room was modern, clean, spacious and great for us as a family of 4. If I had to be negative I would say that we couldn't find it advertised anywhere but during peak times you have to book a swim time which with 2young kids is not ideal but luckily enough the times we wanted to go we're available so no disappointed kids. On first night waited at the bar for 15 minutes before walking off without a drink as big function in that night and not enough staff to cope. Except for these two (for us small issues) then would definitely recommend this hotel.
