We would describe this hotel as OK. It represented good value for money and offered a transport bus (not tried by us) to eh airport at a reasonable price.
Clearly a lot of work has been done since Holiday Inn took it over, however it does give the feel that it is not quite finished. The room was pleasant enough, albeit smaller than some other holiday inns.
The swimming pool was pleasant although we would have preferred some natural light (it is in the basement) and the music played was very limited in variety (seemingly one CD set to continuous). There were no lockers and you had to take your clothes to the pool side. We were told that lockers were on order but perhaps it would be nice to have a sign explaining this.
Some broken floor tiles outside the lift in the basement and elsewhere in the hotel were a serious trip hazard. To sum up, we get the feeling that they had rushed to get guests in, when perhaps they should have completed all works first.
