Stayed here on business. On first glance the hotel was clean and pleasant but on packing up to check out the next morning I was horrified to find toe nail clippings in my bed! (not mine). Obviously the thought that I had slept in that bad was pretty unpleasant. I raised with reception on check out and they said it...

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave us a review. I would like to offer a sincere apology that your stay wasn’t up to the usual standards. Housekeeping work really hard to ensure rooms are clean. Bedding is freshly changed for every guest so I’m confused as to how something would have got into the...

This hotel is situated right next to the Peterborough Showground so would appear at first to be rather off the beaten track. Nevertheless, it is very convenient as the City Centre is only a fifteen minute drive away and there is a wonderful Italian restaurant even closer. The receptionist was very welcoming (a delightful Hungarian lady) and we were pleased...

Stayed here whilst attending a local training course and could not be happier! The rooms are absolutely spotless and the beds were just as comfortable as my bed at home! The breakfast buffet was consistently delicious and the hot chocolate from the coffee machine deserves a particularly special mention... :) Everyone at the reception desk was really friendly and helpful,...

Easy to find from the A1, large car park, easy check in, friendly staff. Good value for money, the rooms are modern and clean. Iron, ironing board and tea/coffee making facilities. Next door to a pub that does cheap eats, about a 3min drive / 15min walk to the showground. Would recommend.

Stayed here for four days on a work trip. The rooms are spotlessly clean, good showers with everything you would need. Breakfasts were also lovely with a choice of beans, eggs, sausages (no bacon). There was fruit, yoghurts, cheeses as well as pastries and small rolls. There was more than enough choice with juices, coffee and teas. The staff truly...

Wonderful receptionist on arrival. Checked us in quickly, professionally and made us feel very welcomed. Room was comfortable and clean. Couldn't ask for a better Manager, or bar and restaurant staff. Steaks were perfectly cooked and a good selection on the cheese board. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Mark Charlie and Staff.

I stay regularly here, and at other brands. Rooms are excellent, modern, good shower. Staff very friendly. But sort your breakfast out. Rubber eggs, no bacon, instant coffee. You are way off the pace compared to other budget hotels.
