This is a new addition to the IHG group. I stay in lots of these around the UK and have to say they should have branded this hotel as a Holiday Inn Express as I don't think it really cuts it as a Holiday Inn.
The corridors are very creaky in the night as people walk up and down them. The bed was a bit rickety too. When the cleaners were in the room next door they were not too quiet and when they pushed the bed back against the wall it made me jolt as I was sat up against the adjoining wall on my bed.
The breakfast was a bit of a let down. No beans or black pudding available as they had run out and it wasn't even busy. How can you run out of beans!? So it was a bit of a dry breakfast. The rest of the items were in warming plates which only kept the food warm. The Hash browns were a bit underdone as well.
C'mon Holiday inn you can do better than that. Up your game before you get any more poor feedback as I stay in the area at scotch corner normally but you are a bit cheaper but I will pay the extra for more comfort. Go and see how they operate.
Overall it's not a bad place but just not up to the usual standards I am used to with them.
