We booked an overnight stay here because it was convenient for the motorway system and not too expensive (£42 excluding breakfast). First impressions were disappointing. Like some of your other reviewers we hadn't realised that it's a motel, not a hotel, and its run down exterior didn't bode very well. Things began to improve when we met the receptionist-cum-barman (located in the restaurant) who was very friendly and cheerful. Our room (Number 1) was clean and the furniture and fittings were quite good enough for an overnight stay although the décor was "tired". In the en suite the bath, basin and toilet all looked new and certainly clean but again the floor tiles and the paintwork need to be updated. Also, the ensuite door stuck and didn't close properly. When we came back to the room about 11.00pm there was a thumping noise in the background, probably the beat from some "music" nearby, which continued past midnight. This was disappointing as we had to be up and away early in the morning. At first I thought the bed was comfortable and the bed lined was fine but then (again like some other reviewers) I discovered that several springs in the mattress were poking up and very uncomfortable.
I can't say anything about the food as we had to leave before breakfast (served at 8.00am on Sundays). Also we only came across one member of staff but he was fine and deserves 5 stars.
If you can overlook the defects and you just need a bed for the night this might be useful but I wouldn't pay more than about £40 - certainly not £60 as some people have found.
