“You get what you pay for”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Wasn't expecting too much - I am away regularly with work and was looking to save the company money. Whilst facilities overall are OK - Free Wifi, Free parking, KFC next door etc the quality of the room was awful - as I was on the ground floor and the windows could be opened - previous occupants had been smoking - the room smelt terrible. It was also very dirty and in poor decorative order. I did mention the smoke to reception but was met with indifference. If you are going to stay here would recommend an upper floor or maybe the 'executive' room. I have three other bookings here which I'm cancelling and will be looking elsewhere.

The Premier Inn at South Mimms was full so we thought we would try Days Inn on the same motorway services site.

Despite being busy we were checked in very efficiently. The vehicle is parked in the front of the hotel, there is no barriered private or secure area. There is an ANPR method of ensuring you pay no fee for parking on the services area for more than the designated time.

The room was pleasantly surprising, it seemed to be a mix of a Premier and TraveLodge room with familiar elements of both. We had an executive room which gave us a work as well as dressing table. There was a fridge and all the amenities you would expect. The pathroom was fine, clean with nice touches here and there.

Initially we thought the bed was good. Not too firm - something we can say about Premier inn. But in fact the bed was quite worn out, the springs could be felt through the mattress surface and the support on the sides had failed.

The night was very warm. The room was too hot and had no cooling system. If we had been staying longer we would have asked reception for a fan. But we had to open the windows wide to get a draught (and one was found to be without the usual stay to prevent the window opening wide enough to fall out. With the windows open the noise from the M25 was very loud.

This may sound a little negative and picky, but they were points which detracted from what was a surprisingly good quality/value room. And added to the fact that breakfast facilities would have been in the Services area and not a dedicated hotel restaurant means we will probably keep Days Inn for when PremierInn on the same site is full.

We will go again, but only when Premier Inn is unavailable.

I stopped overnight on my way to London. Booked online in the afternoon (£48) and turned up later that evening. Paid for room at reception.

Free car parking at service station for hotel guests. Make sure you register though as registration plates are captured by ANPR.

Comfortable room n 1st floor with double bed and sofa bed. Free wifi and freeview TV.

Bathroom was generally good with exception of the shower head which could do with a deep clean.

Other than that, would happily return to break up a journey. Discount voucher give at check out for booking again.

We stayed for 1 night with our dog, check in staff were friendly, really appreciated the nice decked area where we could sit out with our dog and eat - plenty of choice from the restaurants. Impressed with the microwaves in the foyer of the hotel that could be used to heat bought in food. Nice to have tea, biscuits in the room and a hair dryer. Room was clean, decor getting a little tired though. I wish they would stop using white duvet covers though, we bring our own now just in case the dog brushes against them, even though she is clean and well behaved, if it is wet so e transfer is difficult to avoid!

I usually expect a hotel at a motorway services to be adequate for nights sleep but was pleasantly surprised.
I stayed in an Executive room which I think may be a little bigger with an extra desk and fridge.

Checking in was a smooth procedure. Room on the ground floor which was nice and clean. The fridge being a bonus as I could drinks and fresh milk for a decent brew.

Decent tea bags (Yorkshire Tea) as well as biscuits and even a nutri grain bar were provided as normal.

I stayed 4 nights and the room was cleaned well on each day.

There is no restaurant at the hotel, but this is not an issue since there are plenty in the services. There is a simple breakfast available for not a lot.

Can't really fault it. Great location, great service and a great stay. Will use it again.

Room Tip: Get an Exec room. Its only an extra fiver a night.
