Went to Holiday Inn for a meeting and found the place really good for meeting. Being a vegetarian I always look for a hotel which can serve me well but my experience was good enough. Can be visited again for an overnight stay as well

Love Holiday Inn's, the room was spacious, comfortable good for parking a coach. Wifi was free and there were tea and coffee in the room. The staff were friendly and helpful. I wasn't fussed about a quiet room as when i'm asleep , i'm dead.
