A family friendly hotel

Book an adventure this year and stay in our family friendly hotel!

We know that the best type of break is one with the whole family and Holiday Inn is the perfect base for any adventure!

Stay connected with free WiFi. Whether you need to book last minute attraction tickets, or post photos of your day out, you can surf the web for free with us.

We welcome the whole family, from Grandma and Grandad, to babies and toddlers, older children and teenagers to Mum and Dad, and we can provide a cot or additional beds at no extra cost* in an adult room, or choose a Classic Family Room, for more space.

We strive to make your stay as fun and exciting as possible, which is why our hotel has a range of board games for you to borrow at no additional cost and table football in our entrance area.

Once you’ve worn yourselves out, find a table at our restaurant and sit down to a mouth-watering dish made with locally sourced produce. At Holiday Inn, kids eat free when staying in the hotel, and are accompanying a full paying adult! In the morning, enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast before more adventures!
