Business users beware: Awful WiFI & Mobile signal
Posted 25-Jul-2016 on Hotels
One night on a business stopover, intending to get some work done, which we could not without travelling into town to use a Coffee Shop wifi. Mobile signal on both EE and O2 is poor in this area, but we didn't even think of that when booking because Free WiFi was advertised at this hotel. Free it may be, but it was totally unusable, even for email. I had a 12MB attachment to download and it failed to, the entire stay.
Completely inappropriate for a hotel of this, supposedly trustable, brand to let down business travellers (and everyone else for that matter) in this way.
We raised the issue with the hotel staff (who were all very nice, incidentally), and they responded that it was a common complaint and that they were apparently doing something about it.
We won't be visiting another Holiday Inn in future as it created a massive headache for us.
Holiday Inn: WIFI IS NOT A LUXURY IN 2016 - IT'S A NECESSITY!!!
