This was my first experience of the Marston's Inn chain and after staying there I will gladly give the other hotels in this chain a try.
It is a newly built hotel which is separate from the main pub / restaurant building. It was a calm place to stay where we had a good night's sleep with no disturbances. The location is good with plenty of free parking spaces and the town centre and station just a short walk away.
As we stayed in the middle of a heatwave we really appreciated the air conditioning. It was also possible to open the window if we had wanted to. The room was clean and small touches such as free WiFi, bottles of water and breakfast included in the reasonable price added to the good feelings we had about the stay.
Check-in takes place at the pub where we also had dinner which was OK, good "pub food" served by friendly staff. As hotel guests we also got a discount on our meal which was a welcome surprise (not sure if that is a permanent offer).
My one disappointment was the breakfast, its probably fine if you like a cooked breakfast but the continental selection was extremely limited and it would have been easier if I could toast my own bread rather than have to order it.
