The location of this hotel is at the end of the Ellesmere canal near to the Boat Museum alongside the river Mersey. The hotel was better than expected from the usual Holiday Inn portfolio of hotels, but did suffer a bit from 'Corporate Flu'. -- Everything is as it should be but done to a formula rather than because someone cared.
There was a large convention on over the Friday and Saturday and the car park was overflowing causing us to have to walk some distance with our cases.
the evening meal was edible and fairly well presented, but lacked a bit of 'love'. Nothing wrong, but if felt like a glorified McDonalds. Breakfast was tired, almost cold but edible.
Bar prices were over the top for not very good products.
If given the option I would stay again, but if somewhere else was found better I would 'jump ship'
