I booked a night here because it was an easy driving distance from Heathrow and it had a pool. I wasn't expecting much, just a place to rest my head. The staff were lovely and friendly right from checkin, and helpfully directed me to the big superstore up the road. There was plenty of parking, and the room was large...

The hotel sell them but were out of his size yet they managed to find a pair which they let him borrow. A desk receptionist even went down to the gym to tell him when he needed to leave the...

This is a well placed hotel for the M1, and gives easy access to outer London tourist attractions. Rooms clean,nice to have access to health club. I was part of a large party but reception staff were good at making you feel welcome. Good food options as its a drive to any other pub/restaurant.Enjoyed my stay

We stayed here on a Saturday evening -the rooms were standard holiday in and the bathrooms look a little tired but clean. The breakfast buffet that is included in the room rate was hot and had all the basics that you need. Good convenient location a minute off the M1

Stayed one night in a family room on the ground floor. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Good value for money. Dinner was OK in the evening, but breakfast was really poor quality; children very disappointed! Good to have the option of the pool and spa. Just wish the water in the pool had not looked a little murky....
