Lovely large room with nice ensuite bath or shower. Had dinner and breakfast both meals were excellent, staff very friendly and helpful. Roomlovely and warm and quiet. Would recommend this hotel, very enjoyable stay. What made it so nice we were on a coach trip but we weren't treated like second class guest like some hotels do to coach trippers. Collapse

Absolutely disgusted with this hotel It took £60 from my card on arrival I had booked three rooms for a family wedding Overnight stay Saturday 24th/25th Paid for the three rooms on the Sunday morning Got home to find they had not taken off the £60 from the bill Phoned this morning to be told I’ll get it back in a few days as it was an authoration fee !!!! Big row with arrogant manager and said why not subtract from bill !!! Now have to wait two days for bank to put it back in my account Breakfast at 07.30hrs was dried up and not nice at all Wedding meal should of been a lovely roast dinner and I swear the meat was so rare the cow was still alive !!!! Evening reception only taking CASH at the bar and the prices varied so much it was appalling !!! Will never go in a holiday inn hotel again !!! And I’m an easy going person Was appalled at money being taken out and not taken off the bill !!! Collapse
Avoid disappointment and stay somewhere else.

My partner and I have just stayed here for 2 nights along with a party of 41 others on a National Holidays break to Cheltenham. To say our stay here was a disappointment would be an understatement , The room we stayed in was clean and tidy although there was a smell of damp and we later discovered the bed was broken. The food ( Buffet style , although only 2 choices none of which were vegetarian) was bland and can only be described as slop. On the second night the food ran out before some of (ourselves included) our party had had the chance to eat . When the staff were asked when more food would be served we were told that was it. The member of staff was disinterested , rude and kept shrugging his shoulders. I then asked the lady at reception what would be done about the fact that there was at least 7 of us that had not yet eaten. She was equally as rude and showed not much interest but did eventually go speak to the cook ( not a chef by any means) . Upon her return she told us they would make us some food , no details of what or how long we would wait , nothing. around 40 minutes later a plate of dry chicken and some reheated chips were plonked in the serving area with no offer of some sort of sauce or condiment. Oh inbetween speaking to the receptionist and actually getting the dry as a bone disgusting food we were given 2 bags of crisps by a member of staff as a replacement meal . The room itself was quite modern but the rest of hotel is shabby and in need of an update. The staff are rude and certainly not made for customer service. The breakfast was acceptable and a few choices were available , but yet again the morning staff seemed to not want to be there and seemed to try and avoid any interaction with the guests. But the biggest issue we had would have been the fact that while we were out for the day at the races somebody I am assuming the cleaner decided to have a try of my makeup , I had treated myself to a nice new eyeshadow pallet , which I opened that day and used 3 different colours . To come back and find that a further 3 had been smudged all over the place and not only that but the cheeky so and so had used a cotton bud out of my make up bag ( which I do not use for eyeshadow) to use said eyeshadows and left it on the side with the evidence of colours on it . Not only is that so unhygienic and disgusting it is theft! I can only liken our stay here to a stay at faulty towers. I would never go back here and I would never recommend to anybody . Avoid at all costs unless that is you like rubbish food served by rude and unfriendly staff and not made to feel like a guest. Collapse

After visiting for a business conference I have no positives except the quality of the two ladies serving breakfast and lunch, and one of the women on reception. The bar staff did not seem suited to their roles and didn’t seem particularly enthused to be there. Breakfast & lunch food was lovely but dinner was average at best. There was no working heating in the hotel which we were not notified of or apologised to for. Collapse

This stay was for a conference and a 2 night stay. It seems the heating had broken down but nobody thought to mention it or provide additional portable heaters (until I complained) or apologise. The people who served us in the restaurant weren’t dedicated restaurant staff and they demanded we order at least 30 minutes before we sat down. The food was adequate but no more. We were told the hotel was full and yet we were virtually the only ones in the restaurant, that says a lot. On the plus side the rooms were fine with the proviso that the heating had broken down and there was a portable heater although a lot of my colleagues were still too cold. The person who checked me in and the ladies who supervised breakfast and lunch were very good but the rest of the staff were of a very low standard and poorly trained. The conference catering was very well organised and punctual which was a real plus but overall we were all very disappointed and left with a very negative view of the hotel. Personally I think we should have been offered a discount but it is clearly run by an incompetent person who doesn’t care about customer satisfaction. Collapse
