    We all enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn as from walking through the door we were made to feel welcome. The staff at the Hotel were very approachable and very polite and helpful . Thank you for our enjoyable stay. Hope to see you again another time.

    Very good

    We thought the rooms were very comfortable and the beds especially were very soft - great mattresses!! We were on a Fun Ghost Hunt event at Kelvadon Hatch Bunker with a big group of us and arrived back to the hotel at 4am so to have a very comfortable bed to climb into made our stay!

    The proximity to a nightclub I suppose is a plus for clubbers to stay after a boozy night out but obviously when you check in or check out or arrive back late to the hotel you are surrounded by drunk people. Which is kind of funny but brings down the tone of the place, but it is mainly due to its location. But the main thing that let our stay down and angered the other 9 people in our group of friends was the fact the Late Check Out system was so badly organised. We all booked late check outs during the reservation which i know cannot be gauranteed but then we were asked to check back later after checking in, which we did and then we were told to ask again at 9am! well... whats the point?? if you have to set an alarm to wake up at 9am to ring reception to ask if you can leave in 3 hours or 4 hrs... your gona be wide awake afterwards. Which is what happened with our group. It really let the stay down and annoyed us. If we had simply been told yes or no the night before we would have at least known.

    The beds were very comfortable and it was great having a choice of pillows - soft, firm etc.

    It is not in the best location being near a retail park.

    The car port and trolleys for unloading the car. Well equiped rooms. Nice restaurant with pretty window views. We had a family wedding here, the room was nice and so was the garden for the photos. The buffet food was excellent, fresh and warm. A really nice place to get married at - highly recommend.

    The breakfast was not frshly cooked but from a hot plate. I do not like a cooked breakfast but at the price you had to have one. However there was a good selection of fresh fruit. The rooms were nice but the bathrooms are in need of a refurb.

    Quiet hotel, peaceful location; very restful to wake to views of lawn and lake; easy to drive to and park. Excellent breakfast.

    Restaurant has very limited and over-fancy evening menu. In the bedrooms anyone under about 6 ft tall will have difficulty reaching hangers and kettle.

    Fabulous

    On arrival the receptionist was extremely helpful and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. The bar was still open on our arrival back from a family party and, again, the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble - even though it was late and they probably just wanted to finish for the night ! In the morning when we checked out the receptionist remembered our room number and names - very impressed considering the hotel was busy.

    Very good

    Swift efficient check in. Nice room. Had a lift so no need to carry luggage up stairs.

    Small details but niggling and thus important.. e.g. Extractor fan in bathroom not working and when we reported it, being told as it was a weekend maintenance staff would not fix it until Monday. Why not offer an alternative room? No free WiFi but the package of Internet plus movies would cost us £28 for 24 hours which we think is excessive (we didn't buy the package). The room information said complimentary tea and coffee included free biscuits but there were none when we arrived in the room - we asked at reception who knew nothing about it so we had to show them the information; they then gave us the biscuits. The air conditioning unit was hopeless so we opened the window; we suspect the filters had not been cleaned.
