I really liked this hotel. At last, a Holiday Inn Express Hotel that gets everything right. From start to finish this was a pleasurable experience in what is quite frankly one of the best run Holiday Inn establishments I have stayed in.
Check in is painless and efficient. The reception and lobby area also doubles up as a breakfast room in the mornings and the layout almost creates a hotel community within the building. There is also an internet area for those that do not have their own laptops and want to access the internet.
This holiday Inn offers free parking for its quests unlike others. It also provides free wi-fi in the lobby area. In fact on the first day of my 2 night stop over this was a little problematic but staff worked hard to get it working and made sure that I got connected. I can't emphasise how efficient and friendly the staff here are.
The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable with ample creature comforts. Breakfast in the morning was standard Holiday Inn Express but everything was very clean and well organised. The breakfast choice is good with a limited cooked English Breakfast and continental or cereals.
The lobby has a good vending machine so if you just want a quick sandwich or a pie then they will warm it up for you at the bar. The vending machine choice is pretty good. The food service in the evening is also very good. I was given a very nice soup of the day choice, followed by an excellent mains dish and it was superb and not expensive.
I would definately recommend this hotel.
