We stayed 2 nights for a family wedding. Hotel is a typical budget hotel with added luxury of a bar and free breakfast. Rooms were clean and reasonably well looked after, although it had had some repairs done. Beds were OK if a little jittery, major issue was the quilt which was exactly the width of the bed, so with a person under the quilt, it becomes too small and as you toss and turn in the night it easily slips off. Why they can't get a correct size quilt beats me.
On a positive side the hotel is well staffed, with good helpful staff, which is a significant thing in a budget hotel, other chains usually have person looking after everything and failing on every count - not so here so 5 stars for that one Holiday Inn.
There is a pub restaurant next door, a typical Harvester type place, which on the Internet gets horrible reviews, but we had no problems, food was fine and we had a good night. I mention this as the second problem with the hotel is the area in which it is located - one of the worst in Manchester, so I wouldn't recommend walking about.
The breakfast was filling if a little limited - the usual help yourself buffet -tea, coffee, juices, toast, fruit, yogurt, cereal, scrambled eggs, sausage, beans, buns and bread. Yes that's about the lot - a starange mix with no bacon, but as its free and filling, was OK for 2 days but if you stayed longer would probably drive you to the McDonalds over the street.
Overall, we had a good stay, without complaints. Good value for money.
