Very good hotel for a business visit. Excellent location, service and overall hospitality. Checkin was a breeze and room was well appointed, pretty large and clean. A room for improvement would be more choice of hot food for the brekky. Sports bar and in house restaurants were good too. Would recommend anyone Holiday Inn Barsha for a business stay.
