This hotel is in the heart of the shopping area and is well placed for transport links. The old city is also within walking distance. As you would expect from a Holiday Inn, the staff were friendly and efficient and the rooms were of an excellent standard. However, in the restaurant/bar area there were 7 big TV screens. In the mornings these were tuned to Sky news (luckily with the sound down) but it was difficult to find somewhere to eat breakfast where there was no a TV screen encroaching on your consciousness. We were unlucky to be staying in the hotel during a week when there was lots of sport happening, especially football and so every evening there was a meal deal to encourage people to come and watch the sport. Since we are not particularly interested in football, this meant that we did not eat in the hotel restaurant on any of the evenings (there are some lovely places to eat close by). I wonder how many guests choose not to eat in the restaurant because of the blanket TV coverage? When we returned each evening, it was not possible to have a drink in the bar area due to the football still being shown, so we sat in the reception 'lounge' and managed not to have to watch TV. It would seem sensible to have a TV free area so that the people who do not wish to watch sport can eat and drink in peace, whilst still allowing those who do, to do so. However, this was a relatively small inconvenience to us, but we would consider perhaps not staying here again in the season
