The price paid for this hotel was very high compared to other hotels in the chain, I have stayed at Intercontinentals for similar prices, however the location of the hotel is not like the top hotels,
it is very much away from the main area! They offer a free hourly shuttle bus to the train station, which is useful, but that is it. Once at the train station you still have to walk to the main areas. The hotel staff are lovely! Chocolates were offered from the cleaning staff each night. The room was large and bathroom included a bath, you could ask for things like toothepaste, combs etc but nothing was actually supplied in the bathroom - just towels and basic shower gel, no slippers or dressing gowns. No coffee maker in room, normal overpriced fridge with drinks. Comfy bed and very large tv with lots of channels, you do need to turn on English though.
Overall I would not like to stay again simply because of the poor location! Such a shame really because the hotel is generally very nice and staff are lovley. Breakfast was not included, a shame for a holiday inn, but we tried it and it was good. Dinner in the restaurant was not as good, the burger was very dull and the bread was thick, cold and got left. Prices are typically high, there are other restaurants around the area but walking to the at night feels slightly unsafe due to the very run down area the hotel is located.
Good hotel, poor location, nice staff, price very high for what you get-stayed at holiday inn expresses for less and got much more. Breakfast good, dinner not so much. Hotel has a basic gym, shuttle bus, bar area. As I have already said, we would not stay again due to location and price paid for what you get compared to other hotels from IHG. [Less]
