This hotel was a most welcome stop on a very long drive. Lovely reception staff on to help. When we arrived in the room it was large, very clean and had the best bed I have slept in in a long time. Best bit was extra pillows already supplied in the room. Great power shower.

Perfectly adequate motorway hotel. The staff had an honest and friendly attitude and the bed was fairly comfortable. The Hotel is on the southbound carriage way, but it can be accessed via the flyover bridge which crosses the motorway. Ignore the no entry signs.

Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, I wanted lots of pillows. The room was clean and large. The bed was ok but not the most comfortable. Water for the bath was nice and hot.

Perfect for our stay. We requested early check in & the staff bent over backwards to accommodate us. For the price we payed we were thrilled with everything but would especially like to praise the staff

Despite double glazing, lorries could be heard rumbling by, but overall the noise was not intrusive. Parking out front is limited but it seems OK to park in the ‘coach...

Well what can I say "you pay for what you get" the place was clean but is in desperate need of modernising. The mattress's are very uncomfortable but the bedding was clean. The bathrooms also need updating, the shower in our room worked but there was no cold feed going into it so it scalded. We complained but they only...
