The Hotel is ideal as an overnight stop as it is located approximately one hundred miles from the Eurotunnel, taking an hour and a half by toll free motorway. We stayed for one night on 24 August 2013 arriving late evening and were greeted by helpful check in staff.
Our room was large and spacious with an en suite shower room, all spotlessly clean. Our only moan would be that the mattress on our bed felt tired and could do with replacing in the near future it was however comfortable enough for to get a good night sleep.
Breakfast was okay although very crowded with other guests even at 8am in the morning. Due to dietary requirements we had previously requested for some Gluton Free food items and the some G/Fbread was provided by the hotel. There were yoghurts, fruits cold meats and cheeses available from the buffet along with a selection of cerials, pastries and breads etc for normal diets.
Being a Priority Club Member I was not aware of being charged for car parking as some earlier reviewers have stated.
To sum up this is a clean excellent value hotel ideal for a one or two night stopover and would definitely stay here again.
