I visited The Charnwood Arms for the second time in a year a couple of weeks ago. Both visits were with friends to attend events at the Snibston Discovery Centre.
The first time we had a twin chalet straight onto the car park and this time we took up two upstairs twin rooms either side of the archway. I'm afraid we did make many Crossroads Motel jokes!
The rooms are really nice, and very good value. Simple, clean with all you need. A flatscreen TV, the usual kettle etc, a hairdryer and an iron. Efficient shower and plenty of towels, spare pillows etc. My only complaint with the rooms would be very stiff, or jammed windows.
We ate in the restaurant one night, and have to say we weren't expecting a lot from the chain restaurant type menu. However the meal deals were very good value and all 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our choices.
The breakfast was a little less pleasing though. More expensive than the evening meals, which is fine as they were incredibly cheap, but charging extra for a decent cup of coffee was a little annoying. We decided to pass on the full cooked breakfast, but I had a very tasty bacon sandwich instead.
All in all a very good choice for a budget stay in the area. Far better than a travelodge. I'll certainly make The Charnwood Arms my first choice if I'm back in the area again.
