Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hippo36 Not a great bed
The hotel was great having sky in the room was a very pleasant surprise the only issue was when I booked I asked for a king size bed and did ask the question "it's not too beds strapped together is it?" And was told it wasn't when we arrived it was very late after visiting family in Wales then making the three and half hour journey to the hotel we were very disappointed to discover that there was no king size bed and that it was too bed strapped together as it was so late when we checked in we just tried to make the best of it and get some sleep which wasn't a lot. The guy on reception in the morning was very helpful and we asked if we could just have an extra duvet on the bed to try and pad it out so the gap wasn't so noticeable as when the bed was made and you lay on it you couldn't feel the gap so much . Apart from the bed issue the hotel was friendly very clean in a great location with a Franky & Bennys and a Toby cavery across the car park I would recommend and stay again just not request a bigger bed next time .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cymraes7 Very good stay with restaurants on doorstep
Seemed like a newly refurbished or newly built holiday inn, room was clean and comfortable, Toby Carvery and Frankies & Bennys just over the road. Hotel staff were friendly, great location, good car park. Breakfast was good although not much choice of cooked breakfast, scrambled eggs, beans and sausages only available, however was still tasty. I would recommend this holiday inn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sue153 Clean and specious room.
Good service. Good selection at breakfast. We were staying in the area to attend a concert and the Hotel more than served the purpose.

Really nice Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stephenc4644 Business Three Night Stay
My first impressions of the hotel were that it was modern clean and professional looking.
The staff on reception were well presented and very welcoming.
Check in was efficient and I was in my room within a few short minutes.
The room was very clean and tidy and was equipped to a good standard.
Simple efficient air conditioning made the room temperature nice and comfortable.
The bathroom was very clean but only had a shower and poorly lit.
The bar has a good range of beverages but suffers from slow service and a poor seating area (an extension of the lobby in full view of the Entrance and exit)
The cooked breakfast is very limited consisting of just scrambled egg, baked beans and sausage.
The main food menu is also very limited offering just a handful of options and again suffers from slow service.
In summery the hotels positives are its staff
Its negatives are they are expected to cover too many bases, therefore service suffers

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DA42 Brief stay
We arrived quite late and left very early, so our experience at the hotel was limited. Having said that, the check-in and check-out processes were fast and efficient and the room was clean and comfortable, apart from a very unpleasant smell of damp in the bathroom.
The breakfast choice was quite limited even for a normal diet, however I need a gluten free diet, so there was little obviously available that I could eat. I asked a member of staff if there were an GF choices and she was extremely helpful and went to the kitchen to arrange for some toast to be made.
