The first thing you notice is ample parking. The second is the greeting, which is very welcoming. The book-in is quick and efficient. The rooms are clean and tidy and standard for hotels of this type....bed, shower, bath, flat screen TV. However no room safe, which was a shame. Maid service was very good.
Food - we ate in the restaurant and food was very good. Breakfast was also excellent. Once again, staff were 1st class. The bar does serve Real Ale, but only in bottles.
I think the main thing I noticed was that all staff were very well presented and polite, making you feel you were in a higher class hotel than just a Holiday Inn.....it made the stay more pleasurable.
My only real negative comment and this is a personal opinion, I was not too keen on the open plan reception, seating area and bar....it was very impersonal. It felt like sitting in a large waiting room similar to an airport....maybe some form of planting would break this up and allow for more intimate areas. However I would recommend the hotel and would stay again.
