Stayed here to allow an early morning meeting in N. England. Very convenient to M6, though not too close for noise to be a big issue. Rooms a good size, modern, very clean and comfortable. Only downside was the heating control was constantly noisily clicking on and off and the heating was only a wall mounted convector heater which struggled to keep the room warm (the weather was frosty outside). Staff very helpful, though keen to sell the meal deal (£22.99 for a 3 course evening meal and breakfast). The meal deal was ok, if a little expensive: Dinner and first drink were reasonable, the breakfast was less impressive, more quantity than quality, and the "Costa" coffee was self-service coffee in a flask, not the individually made Costa Americano I was expecting, however service for both were ok.
Overall, a good place to stay to break up long North/South trips.
