“Stopped in trepidation”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Had to book as couldn't find 2 rooms available elsewhere and after reading the reviews was quite, no very worried. On arrival driving past the lorry park my worries continued. However, walking into reception the receptionist was very welcoming and I couldn't believe they had a smoking room available. Yes the carpet in the corridor was a bit worn and had seen better days but it was clean. The room was very basic but again clean. The bathroom was spotless and the towels pure white, soft and large a real pleasure in a budget hotel. This hotel is absolutely fine for an over night stay, it provides a clean and comfortable bed for the night and a good shower with plenty of hot water. This is not the hotel for you if you want an on site restaurant, gym etc and staying overnight is as a treat. It is a service station, accept it for what it is and you will be perfectly happy particularly with the price, not many places to stay for £30 per night. My only down side was a mix up with payment. Having acknowledged I had paid on booking, at check out it was decided I had not, this lead to 20 minutes of discussion and having to prove via my bank account payment had been received, leading to myself and my colleague being late for our meeting. Got to say though throughout though the staff remained very friendly. If you pay up front take your payment confirmation with you. Because of this have to rate service as average but that doesn't reflect the friendliness of the staff which would have been excellent.

Room Tip: Didn't realise there were still hotels which allowed smoking in rooms, this one does. They are l...

Very good value for money. Family rooms are large. The TV is too small for a large room, but that's OK. There was some noise from the motorway but not too much. Soundproofing between rooms was very good, unless nobody was staying either side of us. The only problem was the mattress, which made us both slide into the centre and was incredibly bouncy (if one was to get up or lie down, the other person would bounce up and down).

Rooms very clean and well presented and good value.the only problem was that the room wasn't made up from the previous occupant but this was promptly rectified and then on the second evening I stayed the room wasn't made up either. The staff are very professional and friendly though. I couldn't get any BBC channels on the tv either but that's not really a problem

Hotel was great and the staff were very helpful but we were disappointed as the only choice of food was continental breakfast, however there are several fast food places in the motorway services a short walk away

We found the little extras in the room and free Wi Fi a great improvement on rival similar budget hotels/motels such as ibis and travelodge which we have used a lot. Only small gripe would be the pillows. Staff were polite, cheerful and helpful
