Booked at very short notice. Very convenient if youre looking for somewhere just off the M5. Clean comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Rooms are typical Holiday Inn , not a bad thing. Wifi is good and the breakfast is the standard Holiday inn with a choice of hot and cold foods. Plenty of parking.

I stayed at this hotel while attending a training course. I found my room was good sized in a contemporary style. The bar and restaurant was ok but I preferred to frequent the bumblebee pub located next-door.

Handy location. Parking. Clean. Good size room. The bed was so very comfy and I loved the fact they give you both soft and hard pillows. A really good hotel option. Just dissapointed the hot buffet breakfast was only toast, sausage and beans. A bit more choice would of been good. It's the only thing that let it down. I...

I can't rate this place highly enough. The staff here are excellent in their approach to customer service. We only stayed the one night, having to attend a funeral nearby the following morning.
