The restaurant is amazing. The food is absolutely delicious. They definitely don't skimp on portions! Great atmosphere & lovely waitresses. I've lived in the village for 6 years. Can't believe we missed out for so long!

A nice enough place but the walls are very thin, you can clearly hear people talking normally next door, Why do they build hotel walls so thin? But I guess it’s OK for one night. But if you stay, DO NOT miss out on the breakfast. So unusual for a mid-range hotel to du such a good spread. I expected...

We booked this to go to the NEC with friends. The hotel has a pleasant garden and good parking and is convenient for the NEC. I was interested to see in another reviewers post that they paid £65. We paid £99.50 but the room rate was even higher at £119 I think. For that price I would expect top facilities....

I stayed here for one night before a business exhibition at the NEC. The location was good - it took about 10 minutes to drive to the NEC from the hotel. Hotel decor is in a bit of a time warp but the rooms were clean. A good atmosphere in the bar in the evening and the food was very...

Stayed for 2 nights at this lovely hotel. room was ensuite and superb. Staff were very curtious and helpful. Food in restaurant was delicious and reasonably priced. Breakfast was buffet, help yourself style and very plentiful. NEC was a short easy drive from the hotel which made it an ideal place to stay. Will definitely be back neck year
