Wolverhampton Racecourse and InterContinental Hotels Group® (IHG) today unveils the completely refurbished Holiday Inn® on site at the racecourse.

All 54 rooms, as well as the public areas have undergone a complete transformation and modernisation and now fit under the popular Holiday Inn brand. The ground floor lobby will now feature fully connected workspaces for guests as well as a café area and an all-day dining menu, serving Starbucks coffee and a full range of snack items. The bedrooms have been redecorated including brand new Hypnos beds and furniture throughout to ensure guests can enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay.
