You never know what to expect with Holiday Inn, sometimes they are amazing, other times they are really run down. This hotel is a beautiful property, obviously recently redocorated. The entrace is grand, the rooms incredibly modern and comfortable. Twin rooms have double beds, the bathrooms large with a powerful shower. The hotel is in a great location, especially for business needs. It is close to Holborn, and yet it is great also for evening entertainment as it is a 10 minute walk into Islington where there are restaurants, bars, a cinema and the O2 indigo music venue. This is a fantastic place for business travel.
I didn't think much to the indian restaurant on site, the food wasn't fantastic... i ordered the korma with pre meal snacks for room service one night, but it was very bland. i plan to return and try the mango dish, I'll report back on that one. But the service was fantastic. £2.50 rental charge for a tray was also a little unncessary, but i hear that is quite normal for hotels.
the other restaurant was brilliant, i ordered a steak which was cooked to perfection and had chunky chips which were fantastic. im tempted to order the beef wellington to my room one night on my next stay.
Besides the food, this was a brilliant stay, I am incredibly happy with the service and the rooms and I will definitely be returning on my next trip to London with work, which is likely to be next week.
