holidayinn, find a best hotel that suits your needs.
They’re one of the budget chains that offer reliable service across the city and across much of the world. They’re a neon green sign of consistency, a beacon to those lost in the lights and sounds of a new city, a rock that you can always anchor yourself to. For many, the risk of going for an entirely unknown hotel on holiday is too big, as a failure can often ruin the trip. In a city like London, where things are already expensive, having to switch hotels midway is going to cost an absolute fortune, so you’re generally stuck with your choice. If you’ve gone for a Holiday Inn though, there’s no risk. They’re the very model of reliability, and you can be sure that your time with them will be most enjoyable.
What you would expect from a hotel at this level, and a little extra as well. We were pleasantly surprised to be given some really quite superb service, and there was definitely the feeling that the customer matters. Unlike in other budget options, the staff actually make the effort to be friendly and helpful. You’re not punished for going on a shoestring, and although this isn’t high end levels of service, it’s still very welcome.
Ease of Use
Booking is simple and will only take you a matter of moments. Once you’ve done it, it’s done. There’s no annoying little extras, or worries about extra fees, You won’t need to scan your credit card details every few hours to make sure that they haven’t charged you again for something you didn’t need. We shouldn’t even have to worry about those things, but that is the sad reality of the London hotel market. Not needing to be concerned about them is certainly a boon for Holiday Inn customers.
Value for Money
We do rather think that chains like this have been hard done by thanks to the ultra budget hotels that have sprung up. Those places offer prices that no one else can ever hope to compete with, and it’s getting to be a little absurd, to the point where we might just strike them off as an outlier. There’s no use in offering rooms for under £30 a night when those rooms are awful and there’s plenty of stress involved in getting them.
With that in mind, renting a room here is not cheap by any means, but it’s certainly not dear either. You could easily do it on a budget, even if you might find a better deal from an independent if you shopped around.
Certainly nothing to complain about. For the price you pay, it’s definitely above what would be expected. We were pleasantly surprised to see that our room was not only great value but roomy and light too. The furniture was comfortable and we got a great night’s sleep in a very cosy bed, with fresh clean linen.
The support we received during booking was nice but it was when we actually stayed at the hotel that we really appreciated their levels of customer care. They took the extra time to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction and to ensure that our stay was comfortable. It’s that sort of thing that really makes you feel welcome and appreciated as a traveller.
For the price you pay, there’s no doubt that Holiday Inn represents good value. You could arguably find better if you looked carefully at smaller enterprises, but that’s not why you go with the company. The big attraction here is the consistency that they seem to offer on a such a regular basis.
