Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Room was a bit past it's best. Upon return from my stay, l was greeted with a parking fine for my overnight stay. Despite having filled in the appropriate form detailing my car registration. Obviously someone at days Inn neglected to inform the parking company that l was a resident and therefore eligible for free parking. I had to contact the hotel, who had to contact the parking firm parking eye. I shouldn't have been troubled with this matter in the first place. My recommendation is to avoid days Inn and this service area.

Great for an overnight when travelling. Using Booking.com it cost GBP 54 for the night and good breakfast was another GBP8 or so. Good value, and good WiFi that permitted an uninterrupted Teams meeting. Lift wasn't working but that was no big deal since there are rooms on the ground floor, 1st and 2nd floors only. Free car parking putting your car reg into the screen at reception. Highly recommended for an overnight when travelling.

The staff at the Days Inn are a class apart from most hotels I've stayed in. Although this is a budget hotel, the staff are amazing and can't do enough to help and provide a personal touch to enhance your stay. I have been staying here every week for 2 months on business and am always glad to come back. Particular recognition goes to Tarlek and Nikki who go the extra mile in trying to fulfil all my requests and make me so welcome each time I come back.

Clean as a whistle and it’s immaculate! No problems! Easy to access off the M1 and good quality! More central to food outlets as well as WH Smith. All tidy and towel are always available! WiFi has no problems and nice TV. Accessible to the City Centre.
