Detailed review by TheDaz
Halifax, United Kingdom
My family and I had the rather dubious pleasure of staying at this Hotel in January 2007, and were ultimately pleased that it was only for a single night. The exterior of the building - a former Council housing block - really does do the Holiday Inn justice.
Aside from the bright and spacious Lobby - with passageways leading to tantalising glimpses of the opulent Hotel restaurant/bar and the breakfast room - the Hotel is largely dark, shabby and in need of some attention.
It's almost as if the Hotel used to be some oversized and rather tawdry B&B, and Holiday Inn bought it for a song and simply changed the name badges and introduced staff uniforms.
For the price - roughly £75 a room - I was not amused at the quality of our stay, although I will point out that the breakfast was both plentiful and of a high standard. Perhaps they have outside caterers!
