I found a good deal for this hotel on tripadvisor. I was looking for a room for 3 for an overnight stay before getting the ferry from Harwich to the Hook of Holland.
I also wanted to try an alternative to Premier Inn.
There are not many hotels that will take 3 adults (adults as in parents & teenage daughter).
The initial quoted price was £51 for the room. A supplement of £25 is added for the extra person.
On arrival the staff were very professional & helpful.
The room was of a good standard however it was not really a suite for 3 people.
It had a nice big TV with additional movies etc. A movie cost £7.50. This is handy when you have kids to entertain.
I was disappointed with the extra bed which was a mattress on the floor not a converted sofa bed. Especially when the cost was a third of the total cost of the room.
The hotel does have a gym & a pool.
The Hotel was very clean although it does seem a bit dated.
We did not eat in the restaurant one of the reason it was a it cold in the bar area.
Overall it was a great deal for 2 people but not as good for 3.
I needed Wi-Fi to get details of the place on Holland I was staying in. But Holiday Inn charge £5 per hour which in this day & age is pure extortion.
For the price Breakfast was decent enough
I paid I was happy with the hotel. If I had paid the quoted rate of £154 I would have been very unhappy.
Holiday Inn still have not convinced me that they are an alternative to the Premier Inn unless the rate is competitive.
But then again £51 for a couple was not bad at all.
