This hotel is in a great location, only a 20minute walk from the station through the town. Room was as expected, good size. Bathroom clean and shower nice & powerful. Room service food was lovely. Would definitely recommend and if up on business again I will stay here no problem.

Stayed at this hotel 13/12/2014 to 14/12/2014 and I must say it is a decent hotel to stay in. I booked two rooms for my family and they were both very clean. There's not a lot happening in Bolton so can't really say too much about the location. We hired a taxi (8 seater) to the Trafford Centre in Manchester... More

A clean but aging hotel. The staff are very helpful and nice. The rooms were clean but were in need of an upgrade, they are showing their age. The bed was very soft and tired too.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for a function that was held in the Cloisters in the hotel. The bedroom was clean but showing its age, and the bed was uncomfortable!!! The Christmas Party function, although very well organised was not good value for the £35 per head charged, 3 small courses and no coffee unless purchased from the bar!... More

A typical Holiday Inn with the usual decor and nice restaurant. Finding the front door based on satnav is a little tricky - it directed me to a car park at the rear of the hotel.

Stayed one night on business, had to book a family room which wasn't a bad thing - it was huge! Staff were friendly & helpful. Sadly nachos ordered from room service were not particularly nice, had quite obviously been microwaved. Wifi (free as I am Priority Club member) was adequate but not particularly fast.
