      It would be great to learn a little more and please do tell us about any team members that went the extra mile for you?

      Hotel was very well located for our delegates and staff, and had good facilities for our needs. The conference room was of a good size, although we did struggle to maintain a comfortable temperature through the duration of the conference (often very cold, or occasionally very hot! Difficult to get the balance right). Hotel team were very helpful, especially the food & beverage team, great service from them. Food was excellent too. Reception were very helpful & professional when they were there, but there were several times where there was nobody at the Reception desk, and no obvious way of indicating a need to speak to them (a bell or enquiry button for example).

      Bedrooms were comfortable if a little dated, but perfectly decent for the type of hotel.

      Do you have any good advice/tips for other bookers/organiser?

      A really good hotel for a conference or networking event. Ideal for work & business perhaps, rather than social / celebratory events. Nothing exceptional or outstanding, but solid Holiday Inn service and quality. Particularly liked the bar / lounge area with its large tables ideal for groups, and workstations with charging points & desk lamps. Location is slightly isolated (not near town) and most of us travelled by car (large, free car park which is very helpful) - easy access to the M4 but not sure what public transport links are like.
