Rooms very modern with a good level of darkness when curtains are closed for sleeping. Had a room on the 8th floor so had lovely views of the harbour. Bathroom is a... More

I didn't have a booking, however they have given a standard room with 2 single beds. The room is dated, stains in the carpet, and the bathroom belongs in a 2... More

Whenever I review a hotel I always consider the price I've paid for something compared with what I have. In respect of the room I was given in the Holiday Inn, if I'd paid £60 for the nights stay I would have been OK with the room, however at £120 for the night I was extremely disappointed. For £120 per... More

It's also not far from the main shopping centre (10 minute walk) and all the restaurants and bars, so you have plenty of options for things to... More
