Booked via email which is probably where we went wrong to start with!
Both of us are light sleepers and requested a quiet room - i think if we had tried sleeping on the M1 motorway we would have had less noise to contend with! By 2 am in the morning we had completely given up trying to sleep as it was totally impossible due to the noise from the road outside!
The hotel itself could be really nice - but - the decor is very dated and everything in the room was worn out and tired! lights didnt work or hung off the wall, the net curtains were absolutely filthy, the bathroom was pokey and not very clean and the toilet seat hung on by one hinge! great!
Not really what you expect from a hotel of this standard or for the money they charged us!
breakfast was ok, nothing to write home about - service was slow & extra coffee ordered did not arrive (we could have done with it as we had had no sleep at all!)!
thankfully we only stayed one night - had we have been booked in for more i think we would have got our money back and gone somewhere else!
