After a long drive, the last thing that you want is a grumpy, unhelpful and inefficient receptionist and that is what we got. Long time to get checked-in, I hate to think what it would be like if there were a lot of people arriving at the same time. Unfortunately, few of the staff that we encountered were any better and this was surprising as most Holiday Inns now seem to have very customer orientated and well trained staff.
The room was a reasonably clean but pretty standard chain hotel room with a bed that provided a couple of nights of decent sleep.
The hotel sprawls over quite a large area so that it may be quite a walk from reception to your room. The receptionist should have told us that there was a better parking area than where we were, and there is lots of parking available, and this would have helped a lot. There is a smallish, but perfectably usable outdoor pool although the hot tub was defective (hot but only a few bubbles) while we were there. The pool area furniture could do with a good clean or replacement and was disappointing compared to other hotels that we had been staying in.
We didn't eat in the hotel as an empty eating area and a fairly limited menu does note bode well. However, there are a couple of reasonable restaurants straight across the road.
The hotel seems to be popular with utilities as there were a lot of their trucks parked in the car park while we were there.
