This hotel is within a great location of Gunwharf Quays - outlet designer shops all around and many restaurants to choose from. We ate at Blanc across from this Holiday Inn which was very reasonably priced and nice food.
We parked in the main Gunwharf parking walked to the hotel which is 5 mins away and handed our parking ticket to the receptionist on arrival who 'swiped' it, so we had 24hr free parking.
Hotel is value for money with everything you need, a few areas need improving (mould spots in shower area,hallway carpet lifting,iron burn by bed,hard pillows with no guts,lumpy mattress- however these things are minor and didn't affect our stay) We stayed in room 316 overlooking the shops - temp. of room was easily adjustable thankfully as it was set to 26C!! It took a while to cool down with the help of an open window, free wifi was fast, breakfast was Ok, friendly staff, slept very well even if the pillows were gut free and the mattress like pebbles! would come back here.
