Me and my partner booked the hotel as we had some spare money, we dont often get the chance to treat ourselves as we've recently bought our first house.
The hotel reception was nice and clean and the staff were friendly. There was a queue at check in (3.00) so we had to wait quite a while, they might like to consider staggered check in in the future. However, this didn't bother us too much as these things happen!
Once we got to our room I was quite disappointed. the room was dark with no main light. the lights consisted of a lamp and small light above the door. Extra lamps were available to use but not very effective and one of them didn't even work. We also had a view of the carpark which was a bit disappointing.
There were tea facilities available and a television which was good and the room was very clean.
However, I then went to explore the bathroom. It was very outdated and had a bright fluorescent light like you would imagine an american motel might have. The tap didn't work properly for the sink and the plug would work either. I had to get my partner to push the lever down to hold the plug in so I could wash my face.
Later I had a shower, I was very put off by the fact they still use shower curtains. The last thing you want is someone else grime and dirty water sticking to you. A shower screen would have been expected. I definately wouldn't of had a bath there if you paid me, it looked like it had been decorated in the early 70's and was very off putting.
I wont be staying here again, we regularly stay at the IBIS in lincoln which is only a 2 star and i would say that I would pay even less for this holiday Inn as the IBIS seems to have much nicer rooms and better standards.
