Week-end stay at "hidden hotel" in a particularly ugly commercial setting. I wasn't the only map reader who couldn't find this place, others used sat nav and they couldn't find it either. The road signage is either hidden amongst the rest of the commercial sites adjacent or non existent. Hidden in a valley behind an Asda superstore, ( green signs) and their petrol station entrance, one has to negotiate a few downhill hairpin bends before one gets a view of the hotel squashed next to the ugliest building in Britain...an ice rink and a very noisy gym club next door. The location is probably the worst I have ever seen for an hotel and that says something. The pity of it is, is that the hotel and its staff are very nice. We had an excellent deal for the week-end which included breakfast and the other evening meals were very reasonably priced as were the bar prices. This an Express and therefore isn't up to the same standard as the usual Holiday Inns in facilities but the overall impression was fine.
