Note to Holiday Inn (IHG) - please show a more representive room quality on your own website of this Hotel, maybe worth a secret audit visit?
I was amazed, booked after looking on the Holiday Inn iPhone app, which provides a rather modern apprearance. If i had known the pictures were from the day after any historic repaint and decoration then I would have stayed somewhere else.
Once your away from recpetion the hotel and my room was like stepping back in time! It's so tired and worn without a regular maintenance programme in place
My room had damage the the window cladding which caused a draft past the double section glazing... the curtain would move with the draft.
The bathroom was very dated, it would appear a refurb may have been started but definatly not finished, the tiling was outside of the bath, it smelt damp, there were no normal HI luxuries like soap bar in the room.
Maybe i was lucky to have the HI pen to use?
The flatscreen LCD tv looked so out of place in the room which was a step back to the 80's at best.
The parking charge was comical, £18.00 to park your car for the night - this is more than parking in HI in London, say Greenwich. Looks too much like a £margin for the hotel and the cheek is the hotel shares the carpark with other companies.
Ok, now here the good bits. Lady on reception was great, very welcoming and warm. Secondly the breakfast was really good. Up to HI standards in that respect.
If this hotel had a major refurbishment then it could charge its £90+ per night, otherwise its simply looking to its location as its advantage. But considering the number of hotel choices next door and up the seafront it most probably is not willing tos pend the required £££ to be better.
