I stayed in this hotel whilst travelling a long distance. I was looking for a simple, budget hotel near the motorway that I could arrive at late and leave early. The room I stayed in was basic, but had all the facilities I would expect. My check-in was swift and I just needed to drop a key off before I left.
Only problem I had was that the southbound M1 was closed and I was diverted off 3.5 miles before the services. It was not clear how to get to the hotel in these circumstances, so I went to the next junction south (some 8 miles) and then north to get on the Northbound services. If I'd have known the area, or there was more access information in advance, I would have realised I could access the service area from the side roads (off the A5) saving a 16-mile round-trip.
