This hotel used to be deemed as the one to avoid in the area by my colleagues and I. The hotel has gone through a transformation and on entering the hotel I was pleasantly surprised.
The lounge /
dining area is now open plan and has been modernised. This has created a bright and relaxing environment.
The rooms have also been modernised with a plentiful supply of sockets, including some close to the bed. Some of the sockets also include USB points for charging electronic devices. The lounge area has also had sockets and USB points installed into some of the tables.
The only down side for me was a lack of iron and ironing board in the room, although they are readily available on request. I find this surprising following a re-fit of rooms, considering a number of Holiday Inn Expresses now have Irons in every room. [Less]
