Have stayed at this Hi many times over the years, and one thing that is always consistent here is the warm welcome from the Reception team.
First time I have stayed here in a year or so, and the
welcome was as good as ever.
Have to say that I think the first sentence of the description on the IHG website is easy to mis-interpret, as it says "Refurbished and reopening in spring 2016......" - This does not refer to the hotel but a nearby historic building!
Sadly the rooms (especially the bathrooms) are rather tired and the room I stayed in had been given a very poor tosh over with a coat of emulsion - some of which was on the carpet and bathroom floor. Tiles had been really badly patched up in the bathroom, and one was on the verge of falling off. But don't get me wrong it was very clean.
As with all Holiday Inn's the selection of Tv channels is pretty poor.
Don't be put off staying here though - rooms are warm and cosy the pool is great, and staff always most welcoming.
Exterior would look better if it wasn't for the overflowing waste bins in the car park. [Less]
