We spent one night here and it didn't really live up to expectations. The good points were:
Great location, just off the M5.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
Our room was basically clean although the bathroom was slightly less so.
The bad points were:
Our 'large room', that we'd paid extra for, was no bigger than the average Travelodge room and we'd assumed (obviously incorrectly) that a bed in a 'large room' would be king size but it was just a standard double. The mattress was also rock hard and very uncomfortable.
The bathroom was very tired with an unappealing old off-white suite and cracked tiles that had definitely seen better days. The 'luxury toiletries' advertised on the web site turned out to be two cheap slivers of soap in plastic wrappers and an empty Dove dispenser on the wall.
The cooked breakfasts seemed ok but I like a continental style breakfast and choice here was severely limited. There were three large open bowls of cheap cereal, a pile of long-life strawberry yogurts (no other flavours available) and bread for toast. Surely there should be extras such as croissants, muffins, fresh fruit etc? Would also be nice to see veggie options on the cooked menu, such as Quorn sausages or Vegebacon.
In summary, a hotel with a convenient location and nice staff but it needs considerable updating before I'd consider returning to it.
