“Great stopping place between Scotland and Newark”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Arrived mid afternoon and the welcoming staff quickly checked us in to our room. This was a half way point hotel for us between Scotland and Nottinghamshire. And it us not too far away from some historic towns.
A lovely large room with mini bar. Excellent range of pillows, air con, large tv, great bathroom.
Had dinner in hotel bar, something on menu not available but staff arranged for something not on the menu to be cooked instead.
Great breakfast in morning, full English.
This has been one of the better hotels we have stayed in during our UK holiday over the past 10 weeks and great value. Thank you Holiday Inn.

We chose this hotel as a half way house stopover from Southsea (Portsmouth) to Scotland. Its a large hotel with an equally large free car park. On entering the building we were very pleasantly surprised by the size and cleanliness of the reception hallway. we were met by a happy reception member of staff who checked us in promptly, on reaching our room, another surprise, the widest bed weve ever slept on, the room was large airy and very clean and the air con welcome as it was hot. After our 6 hour trip from Southsea we were both looking forward to a well deserved drink in the bar which was spacious very comfortable with happy bar staff. As it was now early evening we decided to book a table in the Italian restaurant (You could also eat in the spacious bar area if you wished, they had a very extensive menu) Pleasant surprise number three, the food from starter to main to pudding was as my wife puts it the best meal shes has experienced in this type of hotel it was beautifully presented and cooked perfectly and served by happy smiley staff again. To us this hotel was a brilliant find and we are very satisfied with all aspects of our stay and we will definately use this hotel again on our next trip up north. As for the staff well done, it is so nice to see happy friendly staff.

Room Tip: We were on a high floor, air con was silent, but they could be silent on all floors.

Stayed here 5 years ago and did not like. Had to book as last minute in area this time so was not looking forward to it. How happily surprised I was on arrival. Instantly the place looked cleaner brighter and really good. The room and bed were great as was the WI FI snd tv. Make use of the pool and spa. Great meal too.

We stopped here overnight on the way to Glasgow and the Commonwealth Games, and were pleasantly surprised at the luxurious interior, as the outside does not do it justice. We had asked for a room near Reception when booking nearly a year ago, and this was provided with no problems (something that does not usually happen!). Our room was excellent, with all the extras you could wish for, including efficient air con.and a big bathroom. Our room wasn't quite ready when we arrived, so they gave us vouchers for a complimentary drink at the bar. We ate in the hotel restaurant (Italian themed), and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Breakfast was good and plentiful. We would definitely stay here again.

Hotel is perfectly located as a stopover between London and Edinburgh. Comfortable rooms. There is also a fitness centre behind the hotel with a good gym and pool. The lady managing the fitness centre and cafe was wonderfully helpful. There is a good Italian restaurant in the hotel which is good as there is really no nice restaurant nearby. Breakfast was at Holiday Inn standards and good.
