        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Attentive staff on arrival informative, cleaners were on excellent and we did not have to ask for anything - everything was as described and although we were visiting family on this weekend and this was a little further away than we would have ideally been we would definately visit again (breakfast and the service provided was also top drawer) excellent parking facilities

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Close to all amenities and shopping complex will go again.

          Just more pillows in the rooms and they need to be softer

        • Older travelers

          Excellent value and an extremely warm, efficient and friendly welcome from the Receptionist

          7.0

          The hotel was noisy with unruly drunken guests who set off alarm in the middle of the night, and the night staff, if there was any, took no action. Also a light breakfast of a single cup of coffee and a small box of cereal cannot justify a charge of £13.95, which was reduced to £9.50 following a complaint. The check out staff were apologetic but the breakfast charge was only lifted after being sanctioned by the general manager. Not the way to encourage guests to return.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Pleasant surroundings in a city setting, efficient staff, good seating area for a drink and a talk and the restaurant was pleasant with reasonable food. Last orders 9.30pm which is good for late arrivals. bed was very comfortable.

          Felt the prices were expensive. For the 2 of us our one night and a meal and drink came to over £300.

          When I got to go home.

          Girl on front desk was incompetent, took 14 minutes to check me in. There was no swimming pool as per the description (hotel was booked on this basis), suggestion was to go to local public pool. Had asked for double room, yet found a twin, got no explanation as to why my request was refused OR even answered? Evening meal, overpriced and took far too long to arrive (32 minutes for dessert). Was only staying one night yet had to pay £16 for 24 hour wireless, rip off. Wasn't working for first 4 hours of my stay. Traffic noise was ridiculous with window open, with window closed, room too hot. My room was right outside the cleaners cupboard so lets say I got woken early. Breakfast was average, no one to greet me, waited 5 minutes so got fed up and sat down. All in all, a crap experience and no what the money whatsoever.

        • Older travelers

          Compared to the hotel we usually use, it was fabulous. eg, clean and well-maintained (no mould or tired looking).

        • Couple
          8.8

          Well worth upgrading to a deluxe room. For £45 booked a few weeks ahead it was a bargain. Best Holiday Inn I've stayed in.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Breakfast was lovely but sadly not hot enough. Chef put my full English in the microwave on request and turned up the heat on the warming oven.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Comfortable room; friendly staff & good location

          Cost of food in on-site restaurant.

          7.0

          Good room service ideal location - near my office.

          My gold membership of Priority club was not given any consideration.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Convenient for the town and value for money.

          Large wedding party taking place when we arrived with the reception area full of guests and noisy, uncontrolled children running around.

        • Couple
          8.2

          Easy to get to. Good parking where we were allowed to leave a car even after we checked out. Good shower with very warm water at all times. Comfortable bed. Flat screen tv

          No fridge in the room only an empty space after it. Only one set of towels. And u can hear everything throught the thin walls. Have to pay for Internet connection.

        • Single
          7.4

          Nice and clean rooms for this price range; friendly staff; within walking distance from Viables business park.

          No free wifi / internet service.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          stayed at hotel as we were attending a wedding reception being held there. Well located for our needs, the food at breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Would be more than happy to stay at this hotel again, good facilities such as table and couple of chairs.

          Only niggle was we had booked a disabled access room for another visitor and although it had a shower, this was located over the bath, therefore not easily accessible for a disabled person to use. Some rooms had fridges which is a good idea but why were they not in all rooms?
