Really liked this place. It has just completed a big refurbishment and it's money well spent. I stayed here a couple of years ago before the works started and vowed never to return.
It's an old building so there are squeaky floors etc. but it is quite grand and has lots of character.
The room (an executive one) was large, spacious, spotlessly clean and modern. The quality of furnishings doesn't match the rest of the building but it is very good for a Holiday Inn.
There was only one slight negative - the fault of the architect/designer and that was that outside our room it was hard tile effect flooring. Looks great but as we were close to the lift you heard every footstep clomping along and anyone with a wheelly suitcase or trolley made a thunderous racket!
The public areas are excellent and the restaurant really smart. Food was very good - it is an Italian style restaurant. Well priced and top notch quality. Breakfast again was excellent.
All in all one of the best Holiday Inn's I have ever stayed at. Many seem to be losing their appeal lately so it's nice to see places like this.
