We stayed at this hotel at the end of December 2011. The room on the fifth floor is small; there is no cupboard, no fridge. The water in the tap in the tiny bathroom has hardly any pressure. There is no toilet brush. It was very, very cold in the room and when we opened the radiator as instructed on a sign in the room, it did not get eny better. Reception told us to put the aircon at a higher temperature - just what the sign tells you NOT to do. We kept feeling cold all night. One lightbulb was broken and could not be replaced at 7 o'clock in the evening. Reception was helpful and offered a lamp from their desk, but with no sockets in sight, this did not prove effective. Beds are okay and it was very quiet. All in all, Premier Inns are better quality than this particular Holiday Inn.
