We chose this hotel as a hub for visiting the South Western areas of England. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. Staff are friendly and polite and will assist willingly if you need information. As with this chain beds are doubles and no fridge in the room. There is access to ice. A Park and Ride is within...

It's ok. It's clean and modern. It's easy to get to, just off the motorway. There's a decent modern pub next door for a good evening meal, and I certainly wasn't the only person eating on my own. This time, I was in a room right over the main entrance and next to the lift but it wasn't noisy. But...

Rooms are clean and modern, sadly the hair dryer was broken though. Breakfast is average, and could of benefited from more choice. Had no problems with noise and had a better than expect view of a little pond.

Good hotel with the usual high standards associated with this chain. Roomsof good size, beds very comfortable. Breakfast good although at busy times breafast restuarant could do with being larger. Also, only one place for evening meals within walking distance, although we did find excellent Chinese restuarant in nearby Pinhoe.
