It is easy to provide good service when everything goes well but that service turns to excellent when problems are sorted out well.
My first room had a smelly drain in the shower and, as soon as the receptionist was told about this, he insisted on me taking the key to an upgraded room at no extra charge.
An excellent base for the next day's conference in the hotel.

It’s great to see that even though things didn’t go as they should, we made your stay an enjoyable one. I have shared your comments with the whole team at our morning meeting.

I Hope to welcome you back to the hotel soon, whether it be for a conference of pleasure.

Typical soulless building but has all you need 1) location perfect 2) great staff 3) decent gym 4) great parking although expensive.

Worth a stay at 75 a night and staff excellent. Choice of beers and food awful and lazy. Shows no respect to local produce or interesting drinks. Food so bad and cold that you think you are in Russia.

Stayed for a Saturday night at the end of march and was impressed by the cleanliness and style of the room. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the whole hotel was well run and we'll laid out. I highly recommend this hotel and will stop there again without a doubt.

The rooms are really good and the dining room is very nice with a good menu choice.
The staff are excellent - very helpful without exception.
Conference support spot on too.
Of course with a city centre location you do get night time traffic noise.

We would just like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for such an amazing wedding! It was a lovely lovely day and everything went perfectly.

First we would like to thank your lovely staff, they were so helpful and assisted every need that we had. They were prompt, polite and very efficient.

The food was absoultely amazing and everyone said how lovely it tasted, the presentation was beautiful and it came lovely and hot! Very very tasty! Im very sure that people will want to come back for food again! Definately recommendations to your chef! It was outstanding.

The room looked perfect and a special thanks to Tiago for helping us the night before, going through the days itinery and making sure everything was perfect for us! There's no doubt your staff work tirelessly to make everything perfect! So special thanks to Tiago and Tom and the many other staff who served us.

A special thank you to the DJ who played all the music we asked for and got the party going! We will definately be recomending him to others! So please give thanks to him on behalf of us.

And the room was amazing! So clean, and beautifully decorated! It was complete luxury and we couldnt have asked for a more beautiful room to relax in after our special day!

The day went so smoothly and without fault! And it was the best day of our lives!

And finally a massive thanks and recommendation to Marine, our wedding events coordinator at the Holiday Inn! She helped us along the whole journey and made the day so special for us! We cant express to her how much we thank her for all her help and kindess! She is truely a lovely and remarkable lady and we thank you so much!

Best wishes to you all and thank you so much for the amazing day and making the day not only special for us, but also to our family and friends!

Great hotel, friendly staff, lovely rooms, fantastic location, can't fault it really although it's pretty expensive in the bar. I would definitely recommend it for a stay in a beautiful city! St nicks market is a must for anyone.

We would like to thank ALL staff for making our son's wedding such a spectacular success.

Service, food, ambiance, love and care were all evident. Everything we asked for was accomplished with smooth efficiency on the day. Everyone, without exception, complimented the reception & evening buffet. Food was well cooked, plenty of everything, served on hot plates, and obviously prepared well – even down to the freshly baked, hot crusty bread rolls served with room temperature butter (I hate being given frozen pats of butter which takes an age to thaw out properly before you can spread it)!

Yes, we had a few hiccups getting everything sorted but who doesn’t when trying to arrange a wedding? – communication (from all sides) is essential to make sure any plan succeeds. The actual day was everything parents could wish for and you certainly pulled out all the stops!

Thank you once again – your Wedding Packages are proof that weddings don’t need to bankrupt parents!
