    Very good parking facilities, though the speed humps are rather excessive. Friendly staff; if not slightly odd. Very nice full English breakfast.

    No Espresso facilities in the hotel!!! Hotel very much in need of an overhaul, the carpets were beyond belief and as soon as you venture upstairs to your room, the smell of old tobacco is enough to knock out even the 20 a day smoker. I was supposed to have a superior room, if it was I didn't notice.

    Very good

    The hotel is well situated, very well priced and the food is also very good.

    The rooms are small and very outdated - in desperate need of an overhaul!

    Good

    Friendly and pleasant staff. Good breakfast and good location for m6 and shopping areas.

    The corridors and the single room I had are very tired and in need of redecoration ! The carpets are dirty and need replacement. I did not like being in my room without shoes on as the carpet was quite dirty all needs a little updating.

    Superb

    we wanted to stay where it was convenient to be near our family to visit. It was a last minute decision and the perfect choice. I must say the single premier room my son stayed he thought it was the best part of his weekend!!! We arrived late and tired after our journey from Southampton, thank God the bar food was open - the best fish we ever had absolutely delicious. The rooms were clean and there was no noise during the night...good location. We will definitely book here again.

    Fabulous

    Only dissapointing thing expected all of the rooms had been refurbished as photo online gave you that impression.

    Very good

    As a business traveller, this is a very adequate hotel for an overnight stay with a good clean room with all facilities, a pub type bar and free coffee and tea facilities in the lobby.

    Superb

    The reception staff were outstanding, better than the six previous hotels that I have used.

    The meal we had in the bar; the quality was quite good but the Cumberland sausages and mash were not cumberland sausage, just ordinary breakfast sausage. One of our party had to compromise with his order at the last moment when others had been served.

    The price I paid was low, otherwise I would not have been satisfied. Restaurant good for breakfast.

    The website says that the rooms have been refurbished, mine had not. It had the worlds smallest flat screen tv which looked new but everything else is dated.

    Absolutely not as quality as advertised.

    Good

    Staff were friendly. I used the hotel as a base for visiting family and friends in the area so I did not access the facilities on offer. The hotel is nicely situated in a quiet area.

    The television only had two BBC channels and the radio did not work at all. On Saturday night someone banged on my door and ran off which as a lone female I found rather distressing.
