We stayed for one night on the way to Bournemouth. We had our doubts about Holiday Inns but the location was convenient, they did interconnecting rooms(we travelled with our 4 year old) and it was amazingly cheap. We payed £155 for 2 rooms and DBB for all 3 of us. On arrival we looked at the rooms before checking in as we had up until 4pm to cancel. To be honest it was quite basic but great views...right out onto the Devere opposite. We were honest with the reception staff and told them we were going to look at the other hotel. They were fine with this and said they'd keep our reservation until we decided. The Devere was lovely but all they had left were rooms with awful views of a block of flats and the price for DBB for 2 rooms was more than double. As we only having a brief stop, we opted for the Holiday Inn. The reception staff were very welcoming and friendly considering we had just checked out another hotel. We had 5 beds between the 2 rooms and the family room was very big. Basic bathroom and disappointingly, no fridge or minibar but the customer service more than made up for this.
With low expectations for dinner, we were amazed at how good the food was as was the service. Our son's meal was included in the price and after a great 3 course meal we only had a modest drinks bill.
My only advice if you're staying there, opt for a room away from the lifts and on a high floor for the views. Thank you to all the staff for a really pleasant stay...and I am fussy!
