We decided to book this hotel as a way of splitting a long drive south at the New Year. Its convenience from the M6 was a great help after 260+ miles on the road. Pre-warned by TA (and the multiple signs around the hotel entrance) we sorted the car park registration before we did anything else (although it is a...

This is a large hotel with spacious rooms with comfortable beds. The room was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. Car park was large with free parking but do remember to log your car registration number with reception on arrival otherwise you will be charged. Breakfast bar was well laid out with a good selection. All staff most courteous at...

We stayed for one night on Boxing Day whilst travelling up to Scotland to visit family. Great location just off the M6.

The hotel location is easily accessible "by those who already know where it is". A better signage for in and out cars is certainly needed for the first-comers. We took a wrong turn from the hotel to the downtown Lancaster and were facing the choice of a U-turn on a dark road or a 5-mile detour. The hotel itself has...

The hotel and service were great for a relaxing Christmas break, I would recommend this inclusive festive hotel break. We upgraded the rooms to the suites and were not disappointed, the hotel and food were better than we expected.

The Holiday Inn was chosen for its proximity to the city, with free parking and a pool. We booked a family room that was a great size, with a couple of comfy seats and a side table that could be moved about which added to our comfort-the table came in handy for playing cards later on! The bathroom was clean...
