Friendly, polite staff on reception, clean comfortable room, decent bathroom/shower. The mini gym was a nice touch and other hotel chains can learn from the no-nonsense, fast, easy-access, free wifi service. Well done, Holiday Inn!

Stayed here with my girlfriend and it was excellent. Was working from the HOTEL WIFI which was surprisingly good. Seems clean, rooms are spacious and it was a comfortable stay. It's a bit more on the expensive side but it's worth it.
