Handy for the M5.
Reception/bar area quite pleasant and comfortable. White wine by the glass was poor quality, not properly chilled, and very over-priced.
Bedroom pleasant enough - just a typical chain-hotel room. Big problem was the aircon. Noise from the motorway meant we didn't want windows open at night (and anyway, they only open an inch or so) but aircon very inneffective which meant room was hot and stuffy.
Breakfast ok - relatively limited selection compared to Hilton for example, but ok.
Bottom line is it's a 1980's chain hotel, by the side of a motorway. Handy stopover but not somewhere you'd aspire to stay!
