“Very Good for the Price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

I stayed here for 1 night on business, the room was a standard hotel room with ensuite facilities with plenty of hot water and a good pressure in the shower. The Bath linen was clean and plentiful. The decor in the room is getting a little old and could do with replacing but as I only paid £25 for the night I can't complain. The reception staff were very pleasant.
The hotel is very easy to get to using Sat nav. My satnav does not seem to like the rest of the roads in Stoke.

Having read the reviews before we left, i took a sleeping bag, pillow, towel and cleaning wipes, i wouldn't have stayed if i hadn't, the rooms are dirty, smelly, ( i can even noew bring the smell to my nose disscusting) and need a total refit and please don't have breakfast (Black bacon and eggs, dirty fat)........how ever the staff couldn't have been more attentive, they where extremely helpful, even putting staff on 30 mins early for breakfast for us ( group of 9) as we had to leave at 8 am, Really NOT advisable. Sorry.....

Room Tip: Just Don't......sorry....

After a visit to Alton towers with the family we were looking for somewhere local to stay at a reasonable price the plough motel seemed to fit the bill. When approaching the motel the surrounding area really painted a perfect picture for what we were about to see. We arrived at the plough and walked into the reception to be greeted by someone who looked as run down as the motel, by then we decided that we wanted to check our family rooms out before we actually checked in and handed our money over, thank god we did!! We were lead to our room and the first thing we noticed was the front door looked like it had been forced in sometime recently, we entered the room and we were speechless the room was disgusting the quilt covers looked they hadn't been washed in years the old yellow duvet was hanging over the blanket and covered in stains, the carpet was covered in stains some which looked like blood and some which looked like sick. We didn't stay long enough to check out anymore we weren't going to let our 2 year old stay in there I wouldn't even let my worst enemy stay in there we got in our car travelled 3 miles down the road had to pay an extra £30 to stay at the holiday inn it was well worth it. I would never recomend this motel to anyone and would never stay there even if I was payed to. DEFO AVOID AT ALL COST FOR YOU OWN HEALTH! DIVE DOES NOT EVEN COME CLOSE TO DESCRIBING THIS PLACE

I read the negative reviews for The Plough after booking and was not expecting a good stay. I can honestly say I was pleasently surprised, ok it's not the Hilton but for the money is it excellent value. The rooms may be a little dated but they are large and comfortable, the real selling point is the staff, I found them very helpful and friendly, the food in the bar is good value and I would defiantly use this hotel again.

The room we stayed in for 2 nights was very comfortable, it had all you would expect from a standard double room. It was clean and warm, and we were particularly impressed with the range of channels on the TV. The staff were friendly and very helpful too!
I would definitely recommend the Plough Motel, it's brilliant value for money, cheaper than the Travelodge or Premier Inn and you dont have to compromise on quality.

Room Tip: We had booked a double room but were given a family room and it had a large double bed and bunkbeds...

Stayed here on Xmas eve as visiting family. Room and bathroom very clean and warm and of a standard that i would expect for a Motel. Flatscreen tv and modern no frills furniture. Ideal place for a sleepover and superb value for money. Couldnt have got a camping pitch for this price!!!
