Stayed recently at this hotel, located conveniently out of town on the Springfield service area. I have stayed here before but this time had a road facing out the rear of the hotel - onto the dual carriageway and main rail line.
Although the windows have secondary double glazing road & rail noise is quite loud and continuous. Being a seasoned traveller I had earplugs and actually had a very good night's sleep, without them I'm sure I would have been bleary eyed in the morning.
Cannot fault the warm service I was given by the staff, thank you all.
Plenty of free parking on site and choice of eating in the hotel or at nearby locations (MacDonald's or nearby pub). I ate in the hotel restaurant on my first night, great value meal of good quality. On the second night I wandered across to the Grange pub/restaurant (5 minutes walk and next to the Premier Inn, Boreham)
Despite my comments about the noise, I do recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
