We found the staff to be extremely polite and helpful. The breakfasts were superb with a great choice all nicely cooked, and sufficiently strong coffee. We had dinner there one night and found that to be really good too. The hotel car park is small but there is large overflow car park 50 yds away which you can park in... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn for a week whilst working in Lancaster. It is situated on the edge of the town next to the bus station. The hotel is a typical Holiday Inn and everything looks the same as the others that I have stayed in. The one twist was the bar manager who was excellent, he managed the... More

Stayed at the hotel on 28th November. The hotel staff where very good on arrival and helped with me parking my 35ft long car and trailer. The room was adequate as the hotel seems in places dated. Due to it being in the city it was obviously noisy. The great find was the food in the restaurant. Muscles to start... More

The Holiday Inn is located on a busy ring road and has a very small car-park, but the accommodation is typical of the Holiday Inn chain, and it represents reasonable value for money. The breakfasts are very good value, and the hotel is pretty heavily patronised during weekdays by business people. The staff are attentive and friendly. Good value for... More

Don't ever arrive in Preston in rush hour times, because finding the Holiday Inn in the extremely complex road system they have, makes it almost impossible to find the front entrance,and doesn't help this hotel at all.This city has a major traffic problem, which I can't see anybody finding a solution to it for many years, so I won't stay...
