My partner and I spent 3 nights at the hotel as we were attending the Steampunk Festival taking place in the City last weekend. We booked an Executive Double overlooking the Marina back in February and got a quiet, spacious room with great views over the water for £290 (not including breakfast). As other reviewers have experienced, our room was very clean with good facilities, including a safe and mini bar.
We arrived 2 hours ahead of the stated check in but there was a room available and the staff on Reception were friendly and helpful. Because we were spending most of the weekend at the other end of town, we did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on breakfast or dinner. However, we did use the hotel's Starbucks on our last morning and enjoyed sitting outside in the sun with cappuccinos watching the world go by.
The waterside location is undoubtedly one of the hotel's major plus points and although this is a popular and busy area, we found it surprisingly quiet at night. This is the right end of town for the Marina, shopping, restaurants and general entertainment. The Castle, Cathedral and quirky independent shops are approximately 10 minutes away and are reached via Steep Hill. As its name suggests, it's a hlll and it's very steep! Fortunately, there are conveniently located benches half way up. It's well worth the slog. If you want to take the car instead, parking will cost around £7.00 for a day.
I have stayed in several Holiday Inns and have never been disappointed. They seem to be very consistent and, in my view, offer value for money. Of course, as with many things, it pays to book early and I think we got a very good deal for £290 (prepaid rate). The Receptionists said that they are usually busy so booking/paying early would seem to pay off.
