The worst hotel I have experienced in 40 years as a frequent business traveller. There were 3 main problems; first I was unexpectedly allocated a smoking room with no alternative because they were busy, the stench was sickening, no attempt had been made to mitigate the smell, i returned home, opened my case and the smell was overpowering. The chair...

Greated by some really helpful staff, couldn't do enough for us. We were put in room 18, and everything was nice, until we saw there was no tv remote. After bringing up this problem the receptionist wasn't able to find us a remote, so promptly changed our room. One of the key cards needed registering again on our second day,...

Standard, slight smell of smoke in the hall on the way to the rooms, and the window in the room wasn't completely closed and won't shut properly and due to being right beside the motorway is very loud with passing cars! Mind you handy shop and is clean and tidy! Like I say you get what you pay for! All...

We arrived back late into East Midlands and rather than drive home we had booked in for a stop over. The hotel was each to find. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was very good, cleaned and quiet with a comfortable bed. The only shortcoming was that the breakfast offer was limited in the attached service station...

I went for just an over night stay. The staff are very friendly and I was kindly greeted. The rooms are very dated and quite run down and some of the wallpaper has come off. If all you want is somewhere to lay your head overnight it's fine. My first room the window on the ground floor could be easily...
