“Nice rooms, friendly staff”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Easy to find hotel on preston ring road, got a deal with their 4 nights for price of 3 summer offer.

Well equipped rooms, comfy bed and good shower.
Staff were always willing to help and pleasant.

I was there for a 4 day course also held at the hotel and the facilities were also great. Lunch in the restaurant with Leanne was an easy and comfortable affair, and every day she looked after us well and with a smile.

Gym on 7th floor is small but in good condition.

Loses a star due to small car park (35 odd spaces), shockingly slow free wifi (you can pay to speed it up) and expensive bar prices- £4.60 for a pint of San Miguel (town is near for a cheaper drink)

Stayed July 2014, travelled on business

Staff are extremely friendly in this hotel. The rooms are comfortable although could be improved by having an easy chair. Bathroom is of decent proportions. Breakfast was self serve after being seated and is more English breakfast orientated. Other reviewers have stated that the car park is small but the hotel can sell 24 hour multistorey car park tickets for £4.

Wifi is available for free but is not suitable for streaming but for low bandwidth like email is fine. Room had aircon which is always a plus.

Room Tip: away from the ringway.

Stayed as a stop over en route to Lake District. Around ten - fifteen minute walk to train station and adjacent to space age brutalist bus station-see photo. Good accommodation and nice breakfast served by friendly staff. Amazing cheap rates-around £60 for two.

Room Tip: high floor has good views over city

This Holiday Inn is of a very good standard throughout and I could not fault it in any way. It did not excel really in anything, but provided an overall level of comfort with which we were well satisfied.
The rooms were of a good size and most comfortable, the bathroom was adequate for our needs and there were ample tea/coffee provisions with all the usual toiletries. Air conditioning in the room is a bonus for warm evenings. Standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel was also high as was the service provided. All staff appeared efficient, polite and helpful. Breakfast was very good too with a wide choice all well presented. Overnight parking is not a problem despite being in central Preston. This Holiday Inn is located only 5 minutes walk from the city centre, where there is ample shopping provided by all the main stores, but there is also a good park not too far distant. I well recommend this hotel therefore, provided nightly tariffs remain competitive.

had to stay in Preston an extra night due to business, I asked reception if they had a room ready at 1030 and they found one for me immediately and allowed me to check in. Hotel has a small car park which is handy and at no cost unlike some of the other central hotels. Rooms were clean and tidy and breakfast really good. Only downside was the noise from the main ring road which at times sounded like New York due to the amount of sirens, but I didn't pick the hotel for location, may affect people with children at night

Stayed here with my partner for 5 nights in April 2014. Very clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. Breakfast and evening meals enjoyable. Not noisy in the evening despite it's closeness to bus station and shopping. Very small car park but were still able to get a space. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
