The check in was effective and efficient and I was pleased as a gold elite member but when I got to the second floor the lift opened and the room opposite was being painted no problem with this but there was a dreadful smell of paint throughout the second floor.
On entering my room there was an odour smell there with holes in the wall by the TV . It would have been nice to have been communicated with that the hotel was being refurbished. Also it cost me 12 pounds each way from the station when I was told it was only 3 to 4 miles from the railway station. I must admit I was most disappointed with the holiday inn having stayed at the Newcastle one the following Sunday and Watford Junction on the Monday and Tuesday both Holiday Inn Express which we're both very good in Newcastle and Watford
Not having a car I decided to eat in but there were a number of dishes not available
I must admit to being disappointed and I have posted a letter to the Manager with my constructive comments. On checking out I was not even asked about my stay and it is very unlikely I would stay here again
