We stayed in a family room with a bed and a cot. There was enough space and the room was well decorated. Particularly impressed with the quality of the bed linen. We were overlooking the main road and I was a little worried about noise, but this proved to be unfounded. Very clean-apart from one dubious hair in the bathroom (seemingly fallen from the shower curtain!).
Only downside is there was only 1 large and 1 small towel provided and similarly there were only 4 milk tubs- not really enough for a family of 4. However I'm sure we could have asked for more and given the price this really is nit-picking (£48 for the room)!
Location wise, as others said fast food and Harvester on the roundabout. Useful to know there is also a big Tesco one roundabout away, great if you've forgotten anything.
Breakfast was billed as continental but actually included; cereals, bacon, beans, boiled or scrambled eggs and pastries. A good choice. There was a booking system, as it was expected to be busy, we ate early and it was very smooth and calm but also continued to look this way when we were checking out about 9.30am.
Overall, fantastic value for money and highly recommended.
