i always want to be positive with my reviews but i am struggling to keep this as a 3 out of 5 review. Yes the rooms are clean, yes the staff are very very helpful but that cannot hide the fact that this is not of Holiday Inn standard. The wifi, albeit free, is woeful. The rooms have no air...

We stayed two nights to attend a wedding close by. The hotel is very dated and in need of refurbishment. Our room was a good size though, with a reasonably comfortable bed and good bedding and towels. The shower was good, although the bathroom wasnt as clean as it should have been. We were offered breakfast for a reduced price...

Have stayed here several times on business. Staff are always on the ball, rooms clean, tidy & comfortable and the guys in the kitchen make a great effort to keep breakfast as good as it can be. Every time I visit they've improved what's available. On my last visit (Aug 5th) they just doubled the choice in the continental breakfast...

Reviewed 11 July 2015

Plenty of available parking. Looking a bit tired as evidenced by broken window in room 6 that could not be closed. Noisy room as every movement in the room above could be heard. Bed was OK although two singles zipped together. A bit bland really although staff were pleasant but then again that is a basic requirement of a hotel

We stayed here last weekend and was more than happy with the service and value for money. The breakfast was of a good quality (though personally I would of preferred more of a continental choice) with the added bonus of some hot cooked elements being cooked to order. Really friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and tidy though...

I had a recent 1 night stay as part of a business trip. Easy access to the A14/A12 although this means there is some road noise. Food in the bar was fine although breakfast was a little disorganised. Room was fine and very clean. Plenty of parking.

I found myself in a suite - overkill for my one night alone, but nice all the same. Everything clean and worked. The food was good and the WiFi worked reasonably well. Plenty of parking. Some of the exterior could do with attention , the window frames around the dining room are totally rotten... only shows from outside! Jc
