Enjoyed a recent stay here. The room we had was a little dated, and the bathroom was a tad small, but the service we received on arrival from the staff was fantastic. I liked that they gave the children their own little welcome pack with colouring and bracelets. The breakfast buffet was good, and there was plenty of choice. They even had a machine that made pancakes, a real show stopper for the children. I'd definitely return again and stay here if we needed to.

We hold regular events at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury and are extremely happy with the service we receive. All the staff are always helpful and courteous and nothing is too much trouble. The venue is ideally placed, close to tube, train and bus routes. I haven’t personally stayed at the hotel but some of our exhibitors have and feedback has been excellent.
