Holiday Inn Runcorn
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Runcorn
Reviewed 12 November 2017

We were on a weekend break with National Holidays that used this hotel as a stopover. We had a double room. It was clean and tidy and typical of this type of establishment and perfectly adequate for our stay.
Our evening meal was include in our package and there was a choice of chicken, fish or a veggie option- it was hot and plentiful but a bit bland. Breakfast, however, was great!
The hotel is what you would expect - it ticks the basic boxes but is not particularly special and has no "wow" factor. It's clean and practical.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled as a couple

Stayed here with my 12 year old daughter for a one night treat.after day in Chester and it had a swimming pool . Staff were pleasant enough but seemed to be too busy with about 3 coach loads most of the stay . I asked when should I pay for breakfast , now or when I pay on leaving , and was told it is £10 each now or £15 each at breakfast , GOOD JOB I CHECKED as on the phone I was not told this , oh and also they would need an additional £10 in case I want a drink at the bar ??! and it will be reimbursed on leaving , which confused me as I may have wanted to spend more during my stay. I assumed any extras would be added to your final bill on departure . Our room had a 3/4 bed not a double !! luckily it was just my daughter and I as my husband would have fallen out. the tea and coffee facilities were ONE teabag each . can you spare it , The pay to view films were not working ,so I asked reception for help . I was told it was the weather? internet fine etc so not the weather . we were asked to wait in reception until someone could come and see to it , but after 10 mins of hanging around , two coach parties turned up so I told reception we were going for a swim ,by the way the pool door has a code lock on it but it just opens (I found this out after trapesing back to reception to get code number, why didn't they tell me before). We gave up with the film channel . I told reception I was getting a takeaway and asked directions , lady was helpful. however I was not told you cannot leave car park without a code for the barrier , so had to drive back , get out in wind , rain and dark to ask for the code,! no information . We enjoyed our breakfast ,good value if you can eat like a horse , my daughter couldn't eat much so for £10 I was tempted to fill my pockets . When we checked out I went to pay cash for our stay and was told I had already paid!! payment had been taken from my card during our stay!! . so it is a GOOD JOB I had enough funds. Hotel states you pay at end of stay . this may be the fault of the company I used to book so I will have to let that one go . When I got home I realised my daughter should have eaten for FREE , under 12. Another failure to inform me at the time! . Total lack of communication and information .They just want your money .

I stayed here for business and I must say the staff were generally fantastic however the room was from the last century and in need of a good refit.
On the first night my sink would not drain, requested them to sort it whilst I had dinner but was just as bad, reported it the next morning so they could resolve it during the day
whilst I was at work, still no joy
They need to get their act together, listen and act

Excellent hotel well suited to business travel.
Clean and well maintained rooms.
A welcome facility is the gym and pool, both really good.
If back again on business will definitely look to staying here again.

We travelled down from the north to visit our family and stayed here for the night. I must say how nice the room was. It was small but everything was clean and looked after. The bathroom looked newly refurbished with a lovely shower. Tea and coffee facilities and tv in room. Everything's was great and would book here again. Great value.
