I stayed for one night in a business trip. It's a conveniently located hotel. Check-in was efficient. My only gripe was that as I was being checked into a twin room as the hotel was "fully booked" another guest was being offered a choice of rooms and an upgrade. This didn't seem very equitable to me.
The room was small and the two separate beds made moving around the room awkward. However, it was adequate.
The shower was particularly weedy, particularly noticeable when trying to get the temperature up meant bringing the flow rate down to a near trickle! The provision of complementary toiletries was minimal: shower gel, shampoo and soap.
The room on the 5th floor was quiet with good black-out curtains.
Overall a pleasant room, very clean and fresh, with a good sized TV, desk, chair, yea & coffee making facilities and a mini-bar. The bed was comfortable.
The minibar fridge made a racket. Top tip: the blue button to the top right hand corner switches the fan off! The air conditioning was noisy also.
Breakfast was reasonable; the pancake machine is worth using for the novelty value alone! On the hot buffet items: the bacon was good, sautéed mushrooms excellent, the Cumberland sausage acceptable and the scrambled egg horrid! (paste-like texture, an odd taste, but not very egg-like). Hot drink service at the table was non-existent. I eventually button-holed a waiter and made him take my order.
Disappointingly Holiday Inn are into WiFi gouging: £5/hr or £16/24 hours. In this day and age charging for WiFi seems desperate. Unfortunately my Boingo account didn't work here - unlike at some other hotels in the same chain.
Check out was pleasant and efficient. It wouldn't take much for this to be an excellent hotel: a bit of upgrading and more customer care would do the trick.
