Room was basic, get what you pay for I guess. Hotel looked very tired and in need of an overhaul. Reception staff not very friendly or helpful, particularly with how to register for parking. If I hadn't have asked myself I'd have paid a small fortune.

Unfortunately that...

I chose this hotel as it was near the M1 not realising it was actually in the service area (my fault). Price was quite low and included breakfast. However on arrival I found there was no evening meals unless bought from service area KFC Burger King etc. No Bar to relax in during the evening. Cooked breakfast was again offered...

We were supposed to have two beds and we had one double bed and one convertible sofa, which was quite dirty and didn't have any sheets. We asked for some sheets, and they have just been throw on the sofa. We were a small group and wanted to stay some time in the lobby after dinner, and even if we...
