Stayed here for an overnight whilst travelling with work. Not the prettiest of places but in terms of convenience to motorway network, facilities and staff it worked just fine. A busy place which added to create a decent atmosphere around the bar/lounge area. Rooms were clean, comfortable and functional. Perhaps some modernisation/refurbishment wouldnt go amiss in the rooms some time... More

I attended an event here and it was one of the worst meals I have ever eaten. Most of the food was cold, even the jacket potatoes. A meal described as bolognese was not that at all, it appeared to be minced beef and onions in gravy. There were certainly no herbs in it but at least that was hot.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our daughters wedding party. We found the booking in was very efficient and our room was really good.

This hotel is in a brilliant location being close to the motorway if you're breaking a journey form north to south or the other way around. The staff are really brilliant. Well motivated, well trained and enthusiastic. The kitchen side of things is a little less successful. We were late for an evening meal (c.8.30pm) and although the service was... More

I booked this hotel on a Travelzoo deal and then added an additional night via the hotel's own website.

Stopped two nights for a function. Although there is not much to see in the local area the hotel was better value than I had anticipated given the rather grandiose title but dated look.
