Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Concensio Executive Room Excellence
Having spent a year at the Holiday Inn Express close by, the client I am working for changed our Hotel to this Holiday Inn. The difference is incredible. This feels like a true hotel, especially when in one of the executive rooms that has a lounge as well as a bedroom. THe food is of a much higher quality and the staff very helpful.

I am a frequent user of the hotel and always treated with a professional welcome upon arrival, staff identify me as a priority club member. The staff are fantasic and always welcoming. John the Night manager has been most helpful on numerous stays, long may it continue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Susan29 Nice, quiet, comfortable. Value for money breakfast
Stayed for one night with 10 year old daughter, as she had to attend a talent camp that weekend.
Bed was comfortable, and we did not have any trouble with noise from other guests. Air conditioning did not appear to be working though we were provided with a portable heater, so it did not matter. Spa bath was not working in swimming pool, which was a shame as daughter was really looking forward to using it, as she had used it on a previous visit, but assume it was just a temporary thing.
Breakfast was extremely good value - buffet at weekend £6.95, plus children under 12 eat free. Would stay again as very convenient for the M6, but is still quiet.
Not keen on soap and shampoo provided, bring your own!

We have been using hotel for some sales training for a couple of weeks and the customer service has been exceptional. The representative, Stuart has catered for all our requests and more. He really has gone the extra mile. We have also had very friendly service from the restaurant staff and the food is better than the average hotel chain. We are a large group of 18 delegates and they have made us very welcome with their personal service. Regarding the hotel itself, it is very much the same as most large hotel chains but the people make it worthy of a recommendation.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sweet29 Once is enough
A phone call had been made letting us know the leisure centre had been closed...but no explanation about why.
Friendly male at reception dressed immaculatly let us know the leisure centre had been re-opened.
The bathroom was not clean...which was dissapointing.
When returning from our evening meal there didn't seem to be any security measures in place and felt that anyone could just walk straight through, a female on reception wasn't worried about looking up to see.
During the night and morning there were doors being banged shut
In the morning someone a cleaner perhaps was trying the door...after phoning reception a male apologised. I would have thought they would wait for a key to be handed in first before trying to get in the room.
Won't be returning

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by yorkssteve Poor Holiday Inn
I use the Holiday Inns regularly for business trips and they are invariably of a high standard. This is the first HI that has not been relaxing and comfortable.
Firstly the Gym was closed on the Monday because of technical issues which happends from time to time. However it remained closed all week which, for a major hotel chain, is very disappointing that it wasnt sorted at least within 2 days. The availability of the gym was the main reason that I chose this HI rather than the close by express or the Village. The room air conditioning was completely unresponsive so the room was subject to the current spring like weather. I ended up covering the duvet with my coat to keep warm. The corridors all had the fire doors closed which meant the first person along the corridor to leave their room woke everyone else up along it as the doors closed with a massive clatter- usually around 6am.
The only redeeming feature was the staff which were as normal for the HI; very helpful (and apologetic for the gym failure).
I would not recommend this HI if you can find any alternative.

I have stayed here several times now, and plan to continue, due to the consistent high standards.
The hotel has a great 'new feel' and the rooms are comfortable and stylish.
The staff are really friendly which gives a very welcome feel, when staying on your own for business.
The gym is excellent as the equipment is all new and very clean.
Dinner menu has been completely changed and the food is excellent.

I had long stays in this hotel on several occasions and have never been served with so much dedication of some of the staff. The conference rooms, and service within, are most generous and accomodating; the pastries served at coffee breaks taste as been made by a Belgian master baker. Well done and keep building on this!

Overall great experience, excluding the food where most holiday inn offer hot food at the bar after 10pm, this one does not and offer cold/basic sandwich/crisps at really high price!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Thomasz Hopefully Just My Bad Luck
I arrived at about 7pm on a Monday night to a queue at the check-in desk, which seemed to take an age to get through. I was advised that the restaurant was offering a new menu, but I declined the offer of reserving a table.
They took my Priority Club details but I wasn't offered anything for Platinum status (no upgrade, free drink, Wi-Fi or extra points).
I used the pool and sauna, the changing rooms were very basic and it wasn't east trying to find a dry space to dress in after a shower (even though I was the only one using the facilities).
I went through to the bar at about 9pm to order some food only to be told that they would not be taking any food orders for at least 25 minutes (same for restaurant)... got a drink but then decided to leave the premises to get food.
On night 2 I was earlier into the bar to order food. The lady behind the bar went off to find out how long food orders were, she returned with the same message as the previous night, but would I like to order a drink - no thanks, I want to get some food. So back out into the night to get some food.
If you ever have the misfortune of staying here when food is hard to come by, there is a KFC over yonder M6, or if you venture almost full circle over the M6 and back onto the same side as Holiday Inn, there is a Chiquitos and an Indian restaurant (near a Cinema and perhaps other establishments).

I stay regularly, and feel well valued as a guest. very busy this week, so the atmosphere was great in the evenings.
Jess and Jackie doing a brilliant job, with a great sense of humour coming across the bar.
The best Holiday Inn for miles around, and really good value for money.
The occasional upgrade as a platinum member very welcome, as the exec rooms are great, with a 'mini living room'

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ian1959 Great rooms and friendly staff
Stay regularly at this hotel. The only issue is the heating in the exec rooms which have intermittent problems and have to be supplemented with mobile heaters - not ideal and not as easy to regulate the temperature

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve9957 Staff polite and helpful
Whilst a clean, bright new hotel. This hotel offers great conference facilities with rooms and facilities to suit all sizes. Having the room within reach and just 2 minutes from the motorway, it fits the bill.
Only area for further consideration would be the menu which was limited.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, as usual. The pool and sauna were great to relax in and the food was very good. As a business traveller, it was nice to see more effort being made for priority club members and the occasional upgrade is really appreciated. Stayed four days and it was very enjoyable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Avoidifuwanttosleep Not good, not bad
The rooms let this place down. Usually cold (despite air con/heater) and the thinnest duvet and smallest bath towels. You get woken up by people getting up at around 6.30am, if you are on business I guess that's not a problem. All in all, an ok alternative the Holiday Inn Express across the road, but it's not better than it.

After a couple of problems on our first stay, the staff did eveything they could to make our second stay better.
Slightly difficult to find off J10 of the M6 because of the roundabout layout, but the welcoming manner of all the staff was refreshing throughout our stays
Food is above normal chain hotel fayre, and the chef's soups are to be recommended.

I was very disappointed that I was lied to about the availability of an upgrade to executive room. I was specifically told at check in that there were no executive rooms available. I later found out that there were rooms but they chose to not upgrade me and lie about the availability. I can accept not being upgraded but the lying is unacceptable.
