Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We booked a larger room and it was awesome. The staff was excellent. There is little in the immediate area but the hotel is a short walk to the bus and public transportation was effective.

Very Disappointing
Very disappointed & usually Holiday Inn is a good hotel! 1st there was a big queue to check in which took 30 mins. That couldn’t be helped but the check in girl said I had to pay €10 as check in parking was only for 20 mins? There was no mention either that you have to pay €10 day to park there? In my room we only had 2 power points which were far away from our beds? We would be out working all day so would need to charge our phones & laptops over night and in case of emergency I want my phone by my bed? So we had to rearrange the room When moving our beds the dust underneath was disgusting... the cleaner had obviously never hoovered under there! Very surprised as Holiday Inn is usually a good hotel.

3/5 Okay

Business traveller
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
The rooms were tired and could do with a bit of an up date. Food was nice and bed was comfortable. There is an Ikea 400m away with their usual meatball food. There is nothing to do in the area around the hotel and if you are driving be very careful when driving around the “Loop” because if you miss your Turing you have to go around the “Loop” again!

The experience was amazing. But, the breakfast price should be reviewed, it is too expensive.
