                7.0

                Easy to get to with adjacent undercover parking.Within walking distance of City Centre.

                There was no late bar facility on the night of our stay.The 2 rooms we booked had 1 double bed in each room and not twin beds as our online booking suggested and what we expected!

                The friendliness of the staff and being right in the centre of town

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                The reason for one night stay was to see an exhibiton of the students work at the university.The distance to the uni. 10 mins. Excellent to stay for presentation day.

                Postion of room was overlooking the main road with continuous traffic noise.

              • Single
                7.0

                Relliablity of Holiday Inn model.

                No breakfast before 7.30 on Saturday - I had to catch a 7am train...

              • Family with children
                10.0

                Not to far from shopping and rather big rooms. Also liked that we had ajoining rooms so made it easier for family to get ready!!

                Fridge didn't work and smelt a bit when you opened it. Fridge was fine in the other room.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                Clean, comfortable, good value - not the quietest spot as on the ring road, but otherwise very handy for city centre.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                The pool and facilities were good hotel staff efficient and friendly,

                The fact that we were put on the same corridor as a large group of school children who continuously knocked on our door and ran away and kept rattling door handle. After a few complaints to reception we were upgraded but it spoilt our wedding anniversary having to change rooms , having to carry all our stuff re pack etc. I felt it thoughtless of staff to put adults next to a large group of noisy children.

              • Family with children
                6.4

                I have stayed at this hotel several times for the pool, and will continue to do so. I would like to have breakfast and dinner at a rate if possible.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                It is walking distance to the city center and the University

                Breakfast should be included with the price of the room and internet access should be cheaper

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                It was all good, food and room service were excellent, room was really modern and clean.

                7.0

                My room....executive king suite

                Price of the food...we paid £15 for 2 chicken burgers...and they didnt get the order right..but as it was 10.30pm i didnt bother ringing them back to tell them

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Leisure facilities/room size

                dirty leisure ladies changing room. My wife informed me.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Centrally located, clean and comfortable

                The dining room and breakfast are not very inspiring

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                central city location

                paper not supplied when ordered on first day. No concierge to take luggage from road to room. Had to borrow the truck and do it ourselves - not impressed for a large hotel chain and high price. Not easy to walk to the city from here as the hotel is on a busy island of multiple roads. Wifi not free - not impressed ditto. Car park fee was 10 pounds a night unlimited in/out but the car park owners had 3 pound deal whi8ch made it seem excessive. Upon leaving the car park the barrier was up on the exit so security was not good? Twice had to renew card (after it was not working) after making trek to room (no apology). We stayed 3 nights. All in all - never again. The dinner/breakfast crew were friendly and helpful although the sir this and sir that grated after a few times. Overall opinion is that its operated on the cheap by 90% asians (indian/paki).
